Our keynote speaker is the former girlfriend of Aerosmith's Steven Tyler
When Julia Holcomb was 16 years old she became the legal ward of Steven Tyler, lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith and former American Idol judge. At age 17, when she was over 5 months pregnant with Tyler's first child, she barely survived a fire that burned their apartment. While still in the hospital recovering from smoke inhalation, she was coerced into a horrific saline abortion. She is the author of the memoir The Light of the World - the Steven Tyler and Julia Holcomb story, published on LifeSiteNews and credits her faith in Jesus Christ as the life line that helped her rebuild her life after her abortion trauma.
She writes, "I pray that all those who have had abortions or have participated in any way in an abortion procedure may find in my story, not judgment or condemnation, but a renewed hope in God's steadfast love, forgiveness and peace. Marriage and the family are the building blocks of all virtuous societies. I pray that our nation may find it's way back to God's plan by respecting the life of unborn children and strengthening the sanctity of marriage."
Julia is also an accomplished artist, having studied painting at the Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy and the Toronto Academy of Realist Art. She specializes in iconography, portraiture and landscape realism. Today Julia is happily married to her husband of 30 years and together they have 7 children.
