Dream & Aspire
Juliette has been in love with Jesus for as long as she can remember. Over the years, she has had the privilege to be a part of several mainstream Christian leaders and learned first-hand the ebbs and flow of ministry good and bad.
Juliette loves people and has a deep desire for them to have a true depth and an authentic relationship with Lord. Her goal is help foster an experience with Him that will cause a positive change in one's life that will truly catapult them into a deeper and more intimate walk with the Father.
Born in New York, raised in Florida, and now rooted in Texas, this Afro-Caribbean has been graced with wisdom, discernment, and a prophetic edge that calls all who hear her to a deeper relationship with Jesus. She is highly regarded for her authenticity and ability to speak truth in love.
Juliette and her beloved husband, Tim, planted Embassy City in September of 2015. She currently hosts “Unpacked”, a show that is seen across the country and around the world while she oversees the prayer ministry at Embassy City Church. She has her two boys, a teen and a tween, Nathan and Noah and her mother, affectionately known as “Ms. Persis,” whom she adores deeply and are her other heartbeats. Her main mission in life is to see how she can be an example and show others how to truly fall madly immersed with her One. True. Love.
I love empowering people and pushing them to expand their minds and passions. But it’s really difficult to fulfill dreams and desires when we allow our embedded issues to take the wheel of our lives. This conference is only in name... but truly, it is an experience.
I want to do something different for you. Something you can use past a Sunday. Something you also apply to your life in addition to the Word of God. I want you to know how your body reacts to stress, trauma and anxiety and how to physically deal with it in a healthy way. But it will be difficult to do that if you don’t have the adequate tools to use.
So, here we are. This experience is going to
1) Empower You with tools
2) Encourage you to fulfill your purpose
3) Release you and
4) Expect you to leave wanting MORE for your Life.
We will do all this and have some good fun in the process. Here’s a special note I hope you take with an open heart. That is, your status, your degree, your position, your title, your rank or your role is not needed at this particular conference. All we need is YOU. A simply authentic YOU. And if you can’t find her, then bring who you have been. But YOU are so welcomed here. You will realize that there are many just like you with similar areas of life we all share. No one is here to judge, we can’t, that would be hypocritical, and we would need to find ourselves in one of these workrooms. We are simply here to help each other.
The Lord gave me this conference concept down to every detail. HE wants you here and He believes in your healing. Some, if not most, will take a process, and that’s okay. We will walk through it together. Let’s leave this experience being a better leader, a better doctor, a better mom, a better CEO, a better trainer, a better Pastor or Pastor’s wife, a better customer service agent. No matter your life, your space, your situation, let’s leave this event truly empowered to live the REST of our lives moving FORWARD... BETTER than we have been before.
There are 9 basic fundamental emotions that most, if not all of us have. We all engage in them at some point or another in everyday life. Some of us STAY in some of these emotions and feelings probably longer than we should. This workshop is going to help us identify the “WHY, HOW LONG, WHO and WHAT we are going to do to deal with it and NOT allow it to hold you back any longer. If you find yourself ANGRY, a lot, disgusted, or just simply sad, this workshop is going to equip you and give you the tools to not allow it to overtake you.
Boundaries/ Family systems
Many of us don’t realize that we allow people to invade our space on so many levels, i.e., work, school, home, family, friends and frankly, even ourselves. We don’t realize that healthy boundaries keep us safe. Most often, we find it difficult to put up healthy and safe boundaries around the ones we love the most. Our families should be our pride and joy, but that is not always the case. It could be the way that our family system is structured, that may cause a sense of disfunction or unattributed levels of anxiety and stress. This class will walk you through ways, ideas and concepts that will help you set parameters that keep you mentally, emotionally and physically healthy.
Addictions & Intimacy
Addictions and Intimacy are very personal issues that many people suffer with silently. Commonly, people often attribute “addictions” to abusing drugs or alcohol, but there are many things people get addicted to that are not always as visually pronounced. An addiction can be anything that one does with continued use regardless of its harmful effects or consequences... When you fear, you struggle with vulnerability. When you have a secret addiction, and/or an unhealthy behavior, you would rather do anything to protect that issue, then to open up and get help and support. This is often connected to our intimacy related issues. We just may have them focused in the wrong place. This workroom will give you the tools, awareness, perspective and offer the support you can use to sort this out in your life.
What's your Purpose?
Let’s identify your treasures, talents and gifts in this “Purpose Mapping” workroom. Find out the “How To” and the “Understanding” of your calling and your assignment. What’s your passion and how can we know about WHO YOU ARE. Maybe you are doing GREAT in life, yet you still may feel as if ... “Is there more for me, God?”
This is a workroom that will help YOU see YOU in a more dynamic way.
How to Cope
There probably isn’t many who haven’t experienced some form of loss in our life. Whether it is a loved one, an animal, a job or home, we have experienced grief. It is sometimes one of those mysterious, unexplainable chasms in our soul and often there are no words to explain or define it, but we can surely feel it. This room helps us to navigate these gulfs in our life and will give us some understanding knowledge to help us walk it out every day without it sinking us into a dark place.
Imposter Syndrome & Perfectionism
This class should be standing room only if we are being honest with ourselves. And this conference is here to challenge us to be honest with ourselves. Many, if not most women struggle with an Imposter Syndrome and/or Perfectionism. Whether we are comparing ourselves to someone else or trying to “look the part.” Acting like something you’re really not and/or nothing is just ever good enough for you. Let's take a look at OUR OWN selves for a minute... HONESTLY, and let’s see what the deeper issue is here. Why are we not satisfied with “US”? Why must we present ourselves as flawless individuals? Let's dig deeper in this class and let's live a more authentic life.
Cultural Diversity (Bicultural/Multicultural):
Navigating Ethnic & Racial Differences
God made everyone in His own image and His own likeness, but because He is so widely versed in his expression of His likeness, we have the opportunity to see all His various facets in people. Sometimes we may not understand all the dynamics of people in their different cultures, race, ethnicity, background and mindsets. It can be troubling at times to understand it all and keep a balance when feelings, and culture is involved. How do we really navigate effectively the scope of our private cultural spaces: marriages, families, children, friends and even co workers when we others impede verbally or in action with their misunderstandings. How do we make our “blended decisions” work for us and not allow others or ourselves to insert unnecessary conflict in our lives.

You Not Crazy

Health & Nutrition
As women, our bodies go through many changes and challenges. We often battle with weight gain, bloating, stretch marks, cellulite and any other thing we are surprised by when we look in the mirror every day. Some of us struggle with the foods we eat or should not, with the carbs we love and the way it loves us back, and with health disparities that challenge us. We need some really good tips on ways that we can battle our issues in a healthier, noninvasive way. Knowledge is power. So, let's plan ways in which we can do better so we can be better in areas of nutrition.
