Profile Response: Julie Hollar / Brantley, Choteau, MT

 

HWWLT Logo on yellowForty-odd years ago Julie Hollar / Brantley died. She saw the afterlife, the glories of heaven and the scourge of hell. She was in her early twenties. She read accounts of other’s dying and coming back to life. Her death experience aligns with those accounts. When Julie woke back to life her young husband predicted he would die soon, and the reason she visited death was to know where he was going. Four years later, at age 28, Julie’s husband died in an accident. She was a widow with five young children, but she knew her husband was in a good place.

She became a ‘Jill of All Trades’ to support her family. Her business card lists her title as ‘servant’ and states, “your dirt is my bread and butter’.

How will we live tomorrow?

There is a political antichrist and a religious antichrist that is trying to make the world one. Obama is the key to this. We have to decide. Are we going to live a cautious life and be led down this end path, or are we going to be determined from within, led by the spirit?”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
