Judy’s newest talk comes from her 42 years of marriage to her husband Richard.  You will hear about the fairy tale beginning, the reality of day to day coping and struggling and the beauty of surrendering to God.  Judy spent 15 years as a caregiver for her husband after he had a massive stroke.    Judy learned what love really looks like, the kind of sacrificial love that God wants for all of us to have.  She will tell  you, “God turned me into a giver instead of a taker!”  This talk will open your eyes to consider many new things.

Everyone Has a Story                   

 We all struggle with the fear of having to share  our testimony for one simple reason.  We’re not prepared and that causes fear.  In this practical workshop you’ll learn why it’s important to have your testimony ready.  At the end of this session you will know how to give  a short and  longer version of your testimony.  As you experience the joy of sharing your story and see how it encourages others, that fear will be long gone.      IMG_1835

Mom, the Unsung Heroine.busy mom and kids 2

I did the math – Did you know that after fifteen years, a mother of three has washed at least 5,475 loads of laundry?  She’s fixed 10,950 meals?  She’s packed 12,105 lunches and wiped noses at least 14,600 times?  And she’s stayed up 1,095 nights with a sick or fussy child and changed 17,520 diapers.  I’m tired, aren’t you?  It sounds like drudgery doesn’t it?  But the rewards of being a mom are overwhelming.  After six kids and now fourteen grandchildren, Judy will be happy to tell  you how to stay focused and keep your eye on the “prize.”

 

I Wish I Were a Butterfly

 Do you ever wish you’d been born differently?  Darker eyes, lighter hair, taller, shorter, athletic, studious, out-going……? and the list goes on and on.   Former librarian, Judy will read James Howe’s classic children’s story, I Wish I Were a Butterfly and apply these biblical principles to your life.  You’ll soon see that God made you unique and special.  You are “one of a kind” and  He has a plan for you.

Copies of “I Wish I Were a Butterfly” available for purchase.
