Julie graduated from Creighton University with a major in dance and Theology and taught for several years at an inner-city school in Milwaukee. With a desire to expand her knowledge of the arts and spirituality, she attended St. John’s University in Collegeville and completed a Masters in Theology and Liturgical Studies. Over the years, her quest to merge diverse religious beliefs and practices through the commonalities of love and peaceful living, led her to travel, live, and study with shaman practitioners, herbal healers, Native American medicine women, Buddhist priests and other earth-based spiritual teachers. Through these experiences and experiences with global metaphysical teachings, she learned to honor the eternal source of love in all people.

Rain Barrel Efficency

Some places in the Mid-West have had a lot of rain this summer. I use my barrel to help capture waste water and retain it on my property. The key is to remember to empty it as soon as the ground can hold the excess so that the barrel is ready to capture the next storm runoff. My overflow from the rain barrel runs into a garden where the water is held and allowed to slowly soak into the soil. Between the frequency of storms and the function of the rain barrel, I haven't had to use clean tap water on my garden this summer.
