About Julie: 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.
One of Julie’s main inspirations (besides the Lord’s calling, of course!) is 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 children. 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.
Life Verse: Proverbs 17:17, Ephesians 5:25
Loves: Seeing People Smile And Laugh, Doodling, Lego Star Wars, Being A Kid When It's Appropriate, Shooting Things, Motorcycling, Spicy Food.
About Eddie: Eddie Tan is a self-professed Star Wars fanatic, reigning Monopoly Deal Champion ( also self proclaimed ), and ever-available shoulder to cry on. With a heart to disciple young men and help them through the trials this generation faces, Eddie is sincere and genuine. And while he knows how and when to make the team laugh (sometimes at his own expense), Eddie also has a heart for helping parents understand things like video game addictions and the struggle against pornography. When Eddie is not ministering with Generations of Virtue, he can be found working in his home town of Kuching, Malaysia and occasionally helping his community prepare for natural disasters (as in literal natural disasters, not made-up ones).
Position: Head Forever Intern

About Stacia: With a love for life that must be occasionally refueled by frozen yogurt, Stacia's hopes and dreams are never confined to the ordinary or conventional. She is passionate about seeing her generation and the ones to come run further up and further into the great plan of the kingdom. As number two in the Hiramine clan, she divides her time between the hectic schedule of a 21st century teenager and fulfilling the role of Forever Intern at GOV. Stacia's job description includes something of an RA, speaking at events and personal assistant to anyone the Lord brings along. When she's not having snowball fights on the Great Wall of China, she spends the year in CO, NY and elsewhere on the globe with her family. She is convinced that when she gets an electric violin and Jesus comes back, the world will be a perfect place.
I could not ask for a better life. Working with GOV and seeing lives changed every day is indescribable!
