Sign Up to Read With Jules

Welcome to Read with Jules! My name is Julianna Zobrist, and I am honored that you are here! I started Read With Jules in the dumpster pile year of 2020, but it has quickly become the heartbeat of my love of learning, community, connection, and growth. Like all things of great value, there is a story behind the heartbeat.

 

Four years ago, my life unwittingly began to be reborn from the inside out. I was knee-deep in writing my first book, Pull It Off, and kept coming toe to toe with many traditions and ideals I had inherited from my conservative religious upbringing that no longer made sense within my soul. In my quest for knowledge, I began to read—First Plato, then Ralph Waldo Emerson, then Walt Whitman, Margaret Fuller, and Thomas Merton. I picked up book after book after book and could not quench my curiosity. As I followed the divine love of God within, I began exiting the confinement of my certainty and entered into a personal rebirth. Mortimer Adler said, “In the case of good books, the point is not to see how many of them you can get through, but how many can get through to you.” Reading became the totem pole of my liberation. I am honored that you, and your story, are here—joining this army of liberated thinkers and learned women. Let’s read together, shall we?

 

By love, we go!
Jules
