The Author

JulieClawson pic1Julie Clawson is a mom, writer, and former pastor who is simply trying to figure out how she can love God and others every day. Not that it’s easy, or that she does it all that well, but she does her best knowing that it will be a lifelong journey.

Julie grew up as a follower of Christ. She graduated from Wheaton College in Wheaton, IL, where she also earned a graduate degree in Intercultural Studies. She then spent over a decade serving in churches in the Chicago suburbs, but now lives in Austin, Texas with her family. With her husband, Mike, and two kids, Emma and Aidan, Julie enjoys Austin’s eco-conscious culture and visits the farmer’s market regularly.

Julie spends way too much time online, but appreciates the community she has discovered there. She moderates the Emerging Women (emergingwomen.us) and Emerging Parents (emergingparents.com) blogs and loves learning from others who are exploring how to practically live out their faith. When her kids give her a few minutes to relax Julie enjoys meeting friends for a good cup of (fair trade) coffee, discussing theology, playing strategy board games, attending Renaissance Faires (in costume), working in her garden, and reading fantasy novels.

Julie is grateful for the opportunity to share what she has learned about seeking everyday justice, and would love to continue the discussion and learn from all the readers of this book. She invites you join in on the conversation here and at her blog (julieclawson.com).

If you would like Julie to speak at your event or gathering, or simply have any questions about the book, please contact her at julie@everydayjustice.net.

    Julie,
    I just finished reading Everyday Justice and wanted to say thank you. I have read several books lately on this broad topic, but being a young mom myself I really appreciated your perspective. I often finished the other books and felt challenged and invigorated, but a little defeated because I was not in a similar life situation and felt like since I wasn’t going to move into a a community house in the projects that I had nothing to offer. Reading your book gave me some new insights and some definite steps I can take to make a difference where God has me right right now. I appreciate your candor and honesty, and your encouragement to take it one step at a time. My husband is a writer too (Rookie Dad, Zondervan, 2007), and I know it is no easy task to write and parent small kids, so thanks. I continue to look forward to your blog posts, and plan on recommending your book to my friends.
    Also, our church is hosting a Justice Conference (thejusticeconference.com) in February with speakers such as Shane Claiborne and Lynn Hybels. The speaking slots are all filled (sadly for me, as I put your name in the mix too late in the game!) but I wanted you to at least know about it, as they are hoping to make it an annual event and there’s always next year. :)
    Peace,
    Christine
