About the Hosts
Darlene left home at 18, lived in a commune, spent 20 plus years in the music business and para-glided off the Bavarian Alps.; you can’t put this lady in a box, she can do it all. She recognized early that embracing grit and grace were the traits that got her through many trials and triumphs. This realization made one of her life missions to encourage other women to do the same, leading her to become the Co-Founder and President of the Grit and Grace Project with husband, Dan. Author of Help Wanted: Moms Raising Daughters, Darlene has appeared on numerous network TV shows; has been a guest columnist for CNN, Thriving Family Magazine and appeared on radio programs such as Family Life Today and Keep the Faith. Darlene raised two daughters while producing award-winning music videos, managing music groups, promoting concerts and serving as COO of ForeFront Records. This unique blend of author, mother, business woman, wife, and creative producer has shown her that it is indeed true, “life challenges should neither defeat nor define you.” And just so you know, she wears the tool belt in her family. Of course, she does.
Julie is full of stories created from the years she was raised by her great-grandmother, in a house filled with cats (which she will never parent again). This wife and #boymom to a toddler never leaves you wondering what she’s thinking. She’s so demonstrative, Emoji is her second language. Guided by her personal mantra #beboldandjustbeyou she shares her heart, her fitness and fashion tips, and her frequent embarrassing moments willingly. Totally vivacious, stylish and real, her ability to be vulnerable and encouraging, engages you from her first words. Social media and past leadership roles at a large church have created a following of women who look forward to her wisdom and humor each day. Juggling home life with her work life she’s been a Special Events Coordinator, Assimilation Director, and now serves as the Brand Manager for The Grit and Grace Project. Where Julie feels the most comfortable is in front of the camera or behind a microphone. But remember, she’s winging it. Life, motherhood, her eyeliner, everything.
Articles We Mentioned or Know You’ll Love
I obviously have spent a whole bunch of years being a female, well actually my entire life (no surprise there). But something I have realized is that we are a funny bunch, aren’t we ladies? There are some things we do and say that are unique to us. I’ve done them, and I know if you admit it, you have too! So I’m just going to step up and confess to some of the funny things all women do.
