Julie Yarbrough lives in Dallas, Texas and is President of Yarbrough Investments. She has written extensively on grief, inspired by the death of her beloved husband. Julie is the author of several books that address the practical and spiritual challenges of grief including the Beyond the Broken Heart grief group resources, Inside the Broken Heart, Beyond the Broken Heart: Daily Devotions for Your Grief Journey, A Journey Through Grief, and Secure in the Storm (Abingdon Press). In writing about grief, her premise is that those who grieve seek answers found only when they understand the personal dimensions of their own individual grief. Her newest book, Present Comfort, is for those who have experienced loss and for those who are at a loss to understand the range of emotions specific to grief. The meditations in Present Comfort offer assurance, encouragement, and spiritual insight for those who grieve, and context for those who desire to share in the heart and language of grief. Julie is a member of the Board of Methodist Health System, Texas Methodist Foundation, and the Executive Board of Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University. She is an active member of Highland Park United Methodist and blogs at www.beyondthebrokenheart.com.
