“Judith makes me want to be 62 and see my dream come true. She makes me itch to go through life scarred, skinned, banged up, and wounded if only it would turn me into the woman that she is!” Achinette Villamor (young mother and manager of an outsourcing firm in the Philippines)
“I love the way Judith expresses her frailties and faith. The words leap off the page and straight into my heart. Sometimes when I read her stories it almost feels like looking in a mirror. Judith has such a gift and has much to teach us.” Lilly Taylor (one of the Top 100 Australian Women Bloggers)
40 Days In Ordinary Time chronicles the extraordinary story of one woman’s spiritual quest, over four decades of her life. With characteristic humor and transparency, Judith engages the reader with her natural storytelling abilities. Written in a unique format, her book braids together strands of 40 days in her present, ordinary life—with strands from 40 years of trials and suffering—on her pilgrimage to real faith and joy. The book ends triumphantly as she emerges from the “wilderness” into the “promised land” of strength, vitality, and purpose. 40 Days in Ordinary Time is a roadmap of inspiration and hope for all.
“I have few regrets as I look back over my life. I have made friends with many of my so-called enemies: abandonment, brokenness, failure, mental illness, physical frailty, and pain. Join me on an incredible journey of triumph, healing, and victory over enemies, without and within. It is my testimony to the sustaining power and grace of God.”
