Julia Phillips is a Children's Church writer for the Hearts Alive project. Julia and her family were recently called to move from their beloved mountain home to Florida, where her husband, Tom, now runs the Emmaus School of Biblical Studies. She grew up with a love for writing and fostered it by earning an English degree from the University of Virginia. She went on to work as a Literacy Specialist at a children's museum, where she developed and implemented an emergent literacy curriculum for young children in a county suffering from a high rate of illiteracy. Julia currently teaches at Twin Rivers Montessori Academy after years of home schooling her own two young children. She is excited about the opportunity to help create a gospel-centered curriculum that combines her heart for children with her dedication to biblical literacy.
