What We’ll Cover
Julie Wilson is the president of Women Doing Well, which encourages women towards a live of joy-filled generosity. Julie studied journalism in Boston and came to know Christ the same week she landed her dream job at NBC while living in New York. She later went on to work with Cru and then Generous Giving. It was during her time at Generous Giving when she began to realize the need for more community and guidance to support women givers.
Women Doing Well was birthed out of a survey of over 7000 women about generosity. In that survey, 94% of women reported not feeling confident in their giving, desiring community and support in their generosity journey. Since that time, Women Doing Well has grown to meet women in that desire, providing comprehensive and immersive experiences to deepen women’s purpose and joy in generosity and facilitating community to encourage them in the journey.
Julie had much to share on topics like:
- Findings from the survey of 7000 women
- The goal and purpose of Women Doing Well
- Women’s capacity for generosity
- What motivates women to give
- Barriers women face in giving generously
- Common misconceptions about generosity
- The importance of having a two-word purpose
Quotes to Remember
- “Money is just a tool, it’s one of the ways you can be generous.”
- “Community is key, without community, women can’t access their full generosity.”
- “Money is more than just what it can buy, it’s what it can make you be.”
- “Women look for spiritual transformation around generosity.”
- “Purpose is a crucial part of generosity.”
- “If you are not in the world, some part of the Kingdom is going to lose out.”
- “Comparison is the total enemy of generosity.”

Bible References from the Show
Ephesians 4:6 | One God
One God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
Acts 4:32 – 34 | They Shared Everything They Had
`All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had. With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all that there were no needy persons among them.
