The Myth of Balance & The
Reality of Priorities
(Click on that title

In this lively, personal, and humorous
chat that many 21st century women can relate to, Judy debunks the myth
that busy women just need to BALANCE their lives better. Judy
suggests, rather, that what women really need is to embrace the reality
of prioritizing and simplifying their lives.
Judy gives common sense reasons for her priority list and offers great
suggestions for how to eliminate the typical guilt, stress, and fatigue
that often comes with being a woman, a wife, and a mom. An excellent talk for
a Mother's Day brunch or Ladies Tea.

Life, Liberty, &
The Pursuit of Happiness
heads-up talk for teens, Judy breaks down and defines key terms in the
second paragraph of our Declaration of Independence to show the
importance of each element and how it relates to them today. In
discussing the difference between "liberty" and "license", Judy shares
common concerns and eye-opening truths regarding social media and the
internet. This talk is appropriate for secular or Christian youth
groups and is extremely relevant to many issues teens struggle with
Impact of a
talks about the beautiful relationship between Naomi and Ruth and the
impact it had on both of their lives. Judy encourages women
who have been hurt in any mother/daughter relationship in this powerful
and very personal talk where she also talks about her relationship with
her own mother-in-law and the unique love they enjoy. This is an
talk that is most appropriate for Mother's Day brunches or Ladies' Tea. (Don't be fooled,
single women will enjoy this one too.)
Blocks Before The Lord
addresses two kinds of stumbling blocks--the ones we put "before the
Lord" as in life priorities and the ones we put "before the Lord" as
in at His feet. Judy shares what some of her stumbling blocks were
and are, in this humorous yet convicting chat. Perfect for ladies'
fellowships or general assemblies.
In this rather
timely talk, Judy helps to examine the condition of our heart before the
Lord and the apathy and compromise that can sometimes creep its way into
our often busy and distracted lives. Judy answers the questions;
are the signs that we've camped
in Laodicea? What does the Word of God have to say? What's the
cure or where do we camp from here? This talk is ideal for ladies'
fellowship or general assemblies.
Ladies, be prepared to completely leave
the sins and missteps of your past, the myriad of false
identities other people have foisted upon you, and/or the
distorted identity you believe of yourself, at the foot of the
Cross. In this deeply candid talk, Judy reminds her audience of
the consequences of believing distorted self images which keep
us from embracing our true identity and the impact it should
have on our lives. Judy speaks with authority on the subject as
she shares her own self imposed identity crisis and the
oppressive impact it had on her life and ministry, and how she
became free to fully embrace her true identity in Christ. This
life changing talk is suitable for any women's event.
