Julianna Morlet is the girl behind the lifestyle blog, The Girl That Sings. Her blog is focused on her journey as a homemade singer, writer, speaker. If she could sum up who she is in one sentence it'd be, "A visionary idealist who wishes to conquer the world before her 25th birthday." She is the eldest of six children, and is being well-seasoned and fashioned by this life. From sexual abuse, to a blended family, to a baby sister with leukemia, to college in the mid-west and her journey as a homemade singer and worship leader, she has been led to a faith in God that cannot be shaken. You can find her at juliannamorlet.com, Facebook, and Twitter.

She's Safest in Her Father's Arms

And then my mind did something I'm finding a little too familiar these days. It skipped passed the good parts to the bad parts. As beautiful as this world is, it will crush her someday. Or at least try to.

Write for Your Sisterhood

They had something to say, something to offer one another amidst their own brokeness. Even if it came out in bite sized pieces. A sisterhood.

A Girl Who Never Runs is Running for Her Life

While I get ready for bed, there are girls being forced to service men and that makes me sick. Sick enough to run on her behalf. Sick enough to run for her life. She deserves better. She deserves the dignity of knowing love. True and genuine love.

Maybe It's Time to Rediscover Church

Over the past decade, many coffee shop dialogues, reactionary blogs and podium messages on "the church" have come from the youth of my generation. Now adults, and today's church, we've written, spoken, and cried out from a deep, deep well of resentment.

Remembering God's Help in Our Lives

"God helped us!" Have you cried those words before?

My Daughter Needs Me to Stop Striving for Perfection

There's something better than perfection: authenticity. I need it, my daughter needs it, my husband needs it, my community needs it.

Dear Women (Not Yet) in Worship

You know who you are. You're sitting a couple rows back so no one really, really notices you singing your heart out. I see you.

Miley's Message to Teen Girls

No one can blame Miley Cyrus for wanting to become more than the Disney Channel girl. We all need to grow up at some point. But what the world witnessed tonight was a juvenile and sorry attempt to do so. We didn't see a little girl growing up. We saw a wildly inappropriate exhibit of sexuality distorted and warped.

A Quick Note to Pastors on Mother's Day

This weekend is a very special one for most of your congregation. But there may be a small (yet larger than you think) group of women who will sit in your pews and chairs, in silent pain.

Are Our Motherhood Experiences Really That Different?

You've heard it once, you've heard it a thousand times, pregnancy and motherhood is different for every woman. I think that's true, until it's not

Worshipping God When Life Seems Out of His Control | Behind the Song

With every song we write, we pray it would transcend culture and generational gaps, for the purpose of the Church worshipping as one voice.

Compassion Isn't Just a Christian Buzz Word

As a generation, we believe the distress and terror is awful. As a generation, we believe the sex trafficking must cease. The homelessness and poverty can be mended. Clean water is a basic dignity of life. The widows must be cared for, the orphans welcomed into families, and the youth educated.

Some call church scary, some call church home. How can one place be perceived so drastically different?

Discipline Meant for Protection

I don't know about you, but rods and staffs, those were tools of discipline in my home. Ok well not exactly a rod, more like a wooden spoon but when you're on the tail end of it, it's pretty much the same thing.(Can I get a witness? Yup, that just happened.) But in the phases of life, there are transitions.

Don't Give Up

Don't give up. Run hard after God, trusting that He is fashioning you into the likeness of Jesus.

Forgiving My Abuser

I was abused as a child, by my biological father. I was very angry as a child, mostly at him and his family. I stopped seeing him in visitations when I was seven because all I could see when I looked at him was a liar, an abuser, and a stranger. I felt nothing for him.

How to Delight "Daintily" in God

The Hebrew definition of DELIGHT is: to be of dainty habit, be pampered; to be happy about, take exquisite delight; to make merry over, make sport of.

From Song to Sex-Trafficking

He was telling me to do something about the girls who didn't get to wake up from my nightmare. Girls who live day in and day out, not ever knowing how beautiful and valuable they are. Girls whose families betrayed them and others who abused them. Girls whose lives might never know freedom in this lifetime. That was not okay with me.

How Jesus Relates with His Women

Did you know, Jesus, when He wept in this story, His weeping was a juxtaposition? The obvious tell of His weeping was for Lazarus. They were friends and Scripture tell us he was "the one whom Jesus loved." (11:3)
