Julie Roys seeks and uncovers the truth. Trained as a reporter and guided by faith, she explores important issues facing Christians and spiritual seekers with uncommon honesty, fairness and intellectual rigor. As an author, speaker, journalist, and veteran radio host, Julie never shuns dissenting opinions, but enthusiastically welcomes frank and open discussion. A wife, mother of three and daughter of God, Julie’s rare mix of faith, family and investigative journalism makes her a unique Christian voice.
Julie’s first book, Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God’s Compelling Vision for Womanhood, published in September 2017 with Thomas Nelson. Featuring a Foreward by Kay Arthur, the book shows women how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine about them without succumbing to either feminist or fundamentalist caricatures. Julie also has published hundreds of articles in respected media outlets such as Christianity Today, WORLD Magazine, The Federalist, Religion News Service, and The Christian Post.
For six years, Julie hosted a live, call-in talk show on the Moody Radio Network called Up For Debate. Unlike many programs, which present only one side of an issue, Up For Debate regularly featured multiple guests with differing opinions, and challenged listeners to develop biblical discernment. As a respected, conservative Christian voice, Julie also has been interviewed numerous times on National Public Radio, One America News, and Total Living Network.
Julie is a graduate of both Wheaton College and the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. She and her husband, Neal, live in the Chicago suburbs and have three children.
