About Justine

Full of grit and grace, Justine Froelker uses her fiery passion, the occasional curse word, and witty humor to share her vulnerability and truth to light up the world. Justine is an advocate for speaking the unspoken and teaching how to choose to thrive when life hasn't turned out how we hoped, dreamed, or planned. Her spirit helps others to feel seen and empowered to change their own lives, no matter what hand they’ve been dealt and to ultimately do the work of happy. 

Justine currently lives in Saint Louis with her husband, Chad, and their three dogs. She enjoys her childfull life by spending time with friends, building her ministry and wholehearted businesses, practicing creative self-care, laughing (many times at herself) and building butterfly gardens on her acre of land, which has made her an accidental butterfly farmer.

Justine’s Latest Book

The Complicated Gray is my story of a mighty faith wrestle and of a life that hasn't turned out how I hoped. It's a hard story. We all have them. Mine, probably much like yours, is a story that left me bruised, feeling never enough, and really mad at God. It's also a big story that led me to Him. This book is filled with stories that will make you yearn and think and cringe and laugh. It is a messy story because I am not sure faith can be any other way.
