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.

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)

How I'm Learning to Overcome Fear

If you don't know Jesus, you will experience fear. If you do know Jesus, you will still fear. But you don't have to.

How Brokenness Fuses Relationships

Broken people heal when sharing their brokenness and I believe broken people heal when they hear of someone else's brokenness. But brokenness, in and of itself, is not the power. Relationship is. Relationship is cultivated on commonalities and commonalities are discovered by engaging in relationship. It's a beautiful cycle necessary for humanity.

Why We Didn't Let Porn Destroy Our Marriage

I committed to journeying with my husband in his addiction to porn. That was the beginning Jason’s road of recovery. I’ve found that although this was Jason’s problem, the solution takes both of us owning it.

Why Communication Makes the Best Foreplay

There are times when you’re exhausted, when you’re at the end of your rope and getting naked just might put you over the edge. That’s a movie-view of sex.

Why You Can Lead Everyone BUT Your Wife

Leadership isn't promised, given, mandated or inherited. It is earned. Somehow society has adopted the idea that leadership principles play differently in marriage. As if, in all other avenues of life leadership is merited but in marriage its entitled because I am a man and she is a woman.

Why You Can't Submit

Submission (Definition) The action or fact of accepting or yielding to a superior force or to the will or authority of another person. An act of surrendering to a hold by one's opponent. No, thank you. In the Church, submission has a bad reputation. Mostly because of the Church, but that is not to generalize every church. Christian women think of submission as a gender specific religious role in society. We often hear, that because we are women, we are naturally under authority of men.

The NAKED Truth About Marriage

The raw beauty of marriage often gets "covered up" in Christian conversation. As a Christian community, we have become afraid of the struggle that illuminates the very purpose of matrimony. We don't talk about failure. We cover up shame. No one can know our honeymoon phase never existed.

God's Mercy is Brand New Every Morning

Sometimes I forget that God is actively pursuing me. I forget that His love for me is so overwhelming when I stop and think of who He has made me to be in His eyes. I forget that there was never a "good enough" benchmark that I had to meet in order to deserve His love. There was no race I had to run to be accepted by Him. I just was.

The Sunset That Sang Me Home

Flying in a large metal tube, 30,000 feet in the air, at 500+ MPH, is one of the most thrilling and questionable things I believe we do as human beings. As I traveled across a dozen states last week to end up in Charlotte, North Carolina, I was amazed that in a matter of hours, I could be across the country.

We are Loved to Love

Today I was reminded, just how undeserving I am of most things in my life (family, friendships, a job, a roof over my head, food to eat), and yet that graciousness and kindness compels me to make the world a little more right, a little more kind, for someone else.

Silencing the Voice of "Can't"

Her voice will get louder, sharper, meaner, but with every escalation, you rise as well, with strength, bravery and beauty.

Saying Goodbye to Church Family

You allowed this pipsqueak of a girl to lead you in worship, you watched and some of you prayed me into marriage with this guy, and now I feel like you are sending us off with those same prayers and support.

Goodbye, My Childhood Town

Goodbye, my childhood town. I cannot wait to come back to you with my children someday and show them how to remember.

My Top 5 Reasons I'm Sad to Leave Home

When we move on, we always leave something behind. That's the price we pay. These are my 5 things I'm saddest to leave behind. I will admit that more than a few tears were shed at the writing of this post.

My Top 5 Reasons I'm Excited For Change

I know it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt, or irritated by the bird chirp to police siren ratio. I've lived in small(er) towns my whole life and living in LA is such a huge deal to me. I mean, it's LA!

Leaving and Loving Well | Lessons Learned from Leaving the People You Love

“There are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay, and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place.” ― Shauna Niequist, Bittersweet
