Testimonials / Endorsements:
“Judy’s messages are both consoling and challenging with a strong emphasis on the need for radical and profound discipleship.” - Donald Hying, Bishop of Madison Wisconsin
"Judy’s presentations were inspirational and vibrant. Her life experiences were a testimonial to how much Jesus loves her and everyone. Her stories engage the mind and then quickly move to one's heart while drawing everyone closer to Jesus and His mercy. Young and old at our parish were coming back for more. Our parish greatly benefited from her presence. I would recommend her to any parish." - Deacon Dean Roberts, Moorhead, MN
"She is a vibrant speaker with the ability to draw people in. In addition, she is a great storyteller with sincerity and humor, she certainly relates to all people on some level in that we “need” God, God is good—“All the time”, and we are so loved as His child. The audience was able to relate to her and enjoyed her dynamic sharing. She conveys the Catholic faith and embraces it with all her heart. Judy is definitely someone who we would have back and we received a lot of feedback as to how much the program was enjoyed and hit home with many." - Mary Hernikl, Shared Pastoral Care & Community Life Coordinator, West Bend, WI
“I have come to know Judy as a child of God of profound faith and a generous heart. Today I consider Judy to be a friend who calls herself and all whom she meets to a deeper commitment as disciples of Jesus Christ. Judy’s trials and joys in life serve as the ‘God Moments’ that are passionately described in her stories and reflections.” – Rev. Daniel J. Sanders
