Busler Delivers Chapel Message for Women's Missions and Ministry Day March 9

March 9, 2022

Julie Busler, author, speaker and Oklahoma president of Women’s Missionary Union (WMU), delivered the chapel message for Women’s Missions and Ministry Day March 9. The service took place in Raley Chapel’s Potter Auditorium. She shared about her personal mental health journey and how she overcame trauma in her life, encouraging the students to seek help if they, too, are dealing with mental health issues.

Busler currently serves as the Oklahoma president of WMU and is active in the women’s ministry at Immanuel Baptist Church in Shawnee. She and her husband Ryan have been married for 15 years and have four children. They have served overseas in Canada, Mexico, Germany and Turkey. She is passionate about the importance of missions and sharing the Gospel, as well as the importance of mental health, and she recently shared her testimony with female students at OBU in fall 2021 during a Courage and Connection event on campus.

She understands the pain of mental illness and has learned that trials not only humanize us but increase our capacity to be used by God. She loves to use her experiences alongside Scripture to discuss and teach how to thrive in spite of mental illness and that joy and sorrow can coexist. Her book, “Joyful Sorrow: Breaking Through the Darkness of Mental Illness,” will release in June 2022 and is available for pre-order on Amazon.
