Julie Kresl Richards is passionate about seeing people set free and moving forward in their God-given identity.
Utilizing her skills as a life coach, speaker, and writer, Julie serves as a consultant to business owners and entrepreneurs, offering personal insight, wisdom, direction, and encouragement. She also trains adults in spiritual direction, freedom, and hearing God for themselves and for others.
After 17 years in public education, Julie was at the height of her career as a Nationally Board- Certified teacher, training district staff and positively influencing her school environment as a team leader. One day, she found herself asking God to transition her into another element of her calling: coaching adults and helping them to seek greater freedom. That same day, her prayers were answered, and Julie transformed from public educator to professional encourager.

Julie wanted to be a school teacher. At the end of her degree program she was student teaching with someone who told her she had no business working with people, especially children, and would be better off working in a cubicle by herself never interacting with others. As a result, her confidence was decimated. It took her two years after that experience to find a teaching job because she didn't believe in herself. Then she met another teacher who began to pour truth into her. During that time she came to faith in Christ and started saying "Yes" to God's promptings; that's when EVERYTHING began to change. The transformation has been gradual, powerful and undeniable. Now she helps others say "Yes" and is living life in a way she previously could only have imagined.
