Julie Souza Bradley Lilly is the writer of Prayers of a Ragamuffin Warrior, a self-professed chief-cook-and-bottle-washer at Gift of Thorns Facebook ministry. She is a devotion writer for VineWords: Devotions and More, specializing in prayer, and a contributing author to Love Knots: Stories of Faith, Family, and Friendships (VineWords Publishing). When asked about who she is, Julie says she is a worshipper, a servant, blessed wife, stepmom of four adult children, caregiver, retired chiropractor, writer, and most-importantly, a forgiven daughter of God. With thirty-plus years in healthcare, Julie is passionate about seeing the broken receive healing and find wholeness in a relationship with the Creator. Through her own multiple injuries and PTSD, a traumatic brain injury, and other health concerns, she has found the generosity of God to be true to His Word in turning all things together for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.
