More about Julie Shepherd

I have known most of my life that serving God by helping others was the path for me. My goals were to be a wife and mama on the mission field. After studying Biblical Languages at Ouachita Baptist University, I spent a few years serving in a local church before heading to Istanbul, Turkey with my husband. I literally got to live my dream!

Eleven years and four kids later, I came to a crossroads: What would I do once that dream ended? Who was I without my “calling?”

As God helped me to unpack–not just suitcases, but also hopes, fears, and dreams–I discovered that my calling wasn’t a position. It was the very way I’d been created. I am a nurturer; a Shepherd. Now, I am using those insights along with the coaching and facilitating training I’ve gathered over the years to coach others along their journeys to health, growth, and confidence in the way God has designed and gifted them. Through ministry as both founder of The Shepherd’s Arms and as a Pastoral Care Coordinator for a missions agency, I get to live out my calling by helping others live out theirs.

Whether a seasoned minister or a student just starting out, if you find yourself burned out or wondering “What’s next for me?” or “Have I missed an exit on this life path?” then you’ve come to the right place. There are green pastures and still waters out there. Let’s go find them.

“One of Julie’s greatest strengths is her ability to make people feel seen and valued rather than judged…no matter the cultural barriers, she always saw the person, not the stereotype. [People] instinctively knew Julie was someone they could share vulnerably with.” ~A.L., Central Asia

“Through Julie’s coaching and our many conversations regarding the Enneagram, I have come to realize that my way of viewing the world is not the only or best way. This simple concept has completely changed how I view others. Being able to better understand myself, and the people I do life with, has helped tremendously in communicating successfully regarding difficult or frustrating situations. Best of all, it has helped to break down misconceptions I have held as a Type 2 regarding my relationship with Christ. Thanks Julie!”
~J.G., Arkansas
