Julie Busler understands the pain of mental illness and has learned that trials not only humanize us but increase our capacity to be used by God. In her memoir Joyful Sorrow, Julie invites us into her own journey where a mental breakdown took her from being a missionary to a suicidal patient in a Turkish psychiatric hospital. With vulnerability and grace, Julie walks us through how to find help and hope and demonstrates that even in the sorrow of mental illness, joy can coexist. Julie and her husband, Ryan, have 4 children, and have served overseas in Canada, Mexico, Germany, and Turkey. She currently serves as the Oklahoma WMU president.
