A Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope

“I had my first drink of alcohol when I was fourteen; my first blackout drunk that night, but have been sober now for 26 years… I learned a whole lot about transparency sitting around those 12-step tables. There were no secrets there.”

Julie Ziglar Norman understands that we have the ability to learn from the experience of other Christian women who have experienced great pain.  I suspect that is the overarching motivation of her new release (which I read in one sitting!), Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope.

Join us for this authentically raw and transparent chat with Julie as she shares her journey through some pretty rough patches as well as her discovery of deep emotional healing and freedom.

Julie is a rich blessing that I’m thrilled to share with you. And while she holds a famous name, being the youngest daughter of beloved Zig Ziglar, it isn’t because of her dad that I am excited about sharing her with you…it is because of Julie herself. She is an author and inspirational speaker who is gut-wrenchingly transparent  in the hopes that her words encourage others to experience the same freedom she has uncovered. And encourage it does! Julie’s bold words connect us heart to heart with this very real woman who has walked through much of the same fear, anxiety, regret, and shame that many of us have yet she uncovered the power to let go of shame and embrace freedom. Now she spends her days equipping others to do the same as she spreads the hope that “God can beautifully redeem even your worst choices.”

Julie has recently released her new book, Growing Up Ziglar: A Daughter’s Broken Journey from Heartache to Hope. After listening to the interview with Julie Ziglar Norman, be sure to leave a comment for us or for Julie and be entered to win a free copy of her new book.



Julie Ziglar Norman shared the Get Motivated platform with her legendary father, motivational icon Zig Ziglar, for several years before becoming the dynamic, disarming and refreshingly transparent motivational speaker and author she is today. She is comfortable speaking to a small group of 25 or a venue of 25,000. Her unique experience of being raised by the motivators’ motivator has given her a perspective on life and work that keeps her audiences laughing, crying and taking notes. Julie lives in the sleepy little town of Alvord, Texas with her beloved husband of 28 years, Jim Norman. They have four children and twelve grandchildren.
