Julie Hiramine is a mom, author, and the founder and executive director of the ministry Generations of Virtue. As an internationally noted speaker, she has ministered in many nations to thousands of parents, teens, and young people. Julie believes the key to turning the tide of an immoral culture is to equip parents to empower their children to be pure.
Julie earned dual bachelors’ degrees in non profit business management and sociology from Pepperdine University. After college, Julie gained practical experience in youth ministry through the YMCA and pastoral ministry by planting a church with her husband, Kay. She and Kay also spent a significant amount of time ministering internationally during the first several years of their marriage. These experiences fashioned in Julie a heart for the nations and a desire to assist parents as they combat the influences of an immoral culture threatening their children.
Julie and Kay have been commissioned to live out James 1:27, which says “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” Kay and Julie seek to equip the worldwide church to practice a more pure religion. Julie loves working with parents and young people of every age – but she is particularly partial to tweens.
One of Julie’s main inspirations are her own children. In fact, the ministry of Generations of Virtue came about largely through Julie’s prayers for a strategy she could use with her own family. Julie and Kay have 5 children, whom they have homeschooled and taken along on numerous ministry trips around the U.S. and overseas. When not ministering, one of Kay and Julie’s favorite activities is cooking gourmet meals (much to the delight of the GOV team). The Hiramine family lives in Colorado and western New York when they are not on the road.
