Julie Elias is a new to me female Christian music artist. Her main goal is to reach teen and tween girls with her stories of rejection, beauty, and faith using her entire walk to be an encouragement through not only her music but through the non-profit Aurora Ministries she founded in 2014. Through this ministry, she shares through music, booklets, blogging, conferences, and so forth God’s role in her life.
Today, I’m excited to share about Julie’s latest album “A Girl Like Me” . This album features songs of forgiveness, loneliness, feeling worthless, and other issues that girls tend to struggle and often deal with. The song lyrics point listeners to the truth of God’s love, kindness, strength, and faithfulness knowing we are worthy in his eyes and we can confidently stand on that truth. Life is hard and we have to remember the promises of our everlasting king and I feel the album does an excellent job of pointing our eyes toward the savior and his eternal love for us.

My favorite song on the album is “A Girl Like Me”. It’s a song to God about seeing everything about one’s self, yet are still worthy of the King. It’s a beautiful song and Julie does a great job on vocals. The music is subtle and the lyrics take the real spotlight here. I adore it very much. I hope both my daughters know their worth in Christ despite all their shortcomings and self-doubts. This is a great song for not just young girls but for women of all ages.
A song with a fun upbeat sound is “Forgive Me”. This song reminds me of some of the earlier works from artist Amy Grant. It definitely brought a smile to my face. “Here with Us” is a beautiful song perfect for praising God.
Overall, her album is a breath of fresh air. It’s different than most out there and it’s uniqueness as truly won me over. I recommend it!
