A military brat, Julia Janasky-Gibbs has lived in five states and Panama. This mobile lifestyle taught her to appreciate the diversity and the unity which makes America strong.
She also knows that freedom comes with sacrifice, and is proud to support our country as the wife of an active duty soldier, 2nd Lieutenant Jeremy Gibbs.
Julia is blessed with a strong family, but she knows the challenges many American families face in our fast-paced society. Her passion is to help all families gain the skills they need to nurture happy, healthy, productive children. Graduating with honors from the University of South Alabama with a double major in Psychology and Philosophy, she is pursuing her Master's degree in substance abuse and family counseling. The city of Mobile officially recognized her work with families and at-risk youth by declaring "Julia Janasky Day" in Mobile. By continuing to partner with national programs such as Communities Against Drugs Coalition of America (CADCA) and America's Promise, she hopes to expand her focus into a national ministry. She states, "I want to help at-risk youth turn their potential into performance, their challenges into successes, and their dreams into reality."
Julia enjoys singing in her family's music ministry, deep-sea fishing with her husband, jogging with her Italian greyhound, and giving glory to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
