Juli Thompson, a professional photographer, has been a friend of our ministry since our earliest days. As we were getting started she shot the first photo shoot of “before” pictures from our house before the renovation,

she’s photographed events for us,

the final photo shoot of 2024 Mills,

and once we opened she told us “I’d love to take pictures of your guests.” Of course, we’ve taken her up on the offer.

Juli’s contribution to our work is a great example of a volunteer using her specific gifts to make life at Lydia’s House richer and more joyful. Each time a guest gets her pictures, she exclaims over them.  As Dorothy Day was fond of saying, “The world will be saved by beauty.” Juli has helped us celebrate, again and again, the beauty that surrounds us.

By the way, Juli didn’t ask us to promote her, but we can say she’s a great photographer. If you’re looking for someone please check out her website! http://www.juliannaboehm.com/
