Hello, my name is Julia Kirk. I grew up in Worthington Indiana until the age of 35 when I moved to Bloomfield. Both are very small country towns. I now live in Bloomington Indiana where I work full time at Indiana University and part-time at Home Instead Senior Care as a caregiver.
I have two sons who have always been the light of my life. I officiated the marriage of my oldest son Kris to his wife Chelsey. What a great honor, privilege and joy that was. My youngest son Shane is engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Savannah. They have two beautiful children, my grand-babies, Spencer and Sophia. All are the light of my life…don’t know what I would do without them.
I have suffered with depression, loneliness, self esteem and acceptance my entire life. More so after becoming a drug addict for 10 years after the death of my husband. Thankfully, Jesus found me at the bottom of that pit and put my feet on the Solid Rock. I now live a life of joy & acceptance because I have found my true identity is in Jesus Christ.
I love to encourage others in who they are through the eyes of Jesus. I love doing that through Kairos Prison Ministry where I go into the Women’s Prison with a team of volunteers to minister to those who feel hopeless and unloved. I also do so from speaking at Women’s Retreats.
