Rudy Galdonik - Humorist, Author of "Take Heart"
Rudy Wilson Galdonik’s been hailed as the Erma Bombeck for the 21st century. She has gone from a pew warmer to someone who sees God in the everyday details of life. A lifelong heart patient with $40,000 worth of “stuff” in her chest keeping her alive and widowed at the age of 42, Rudy has learned to lean on and trust God even when things don't make sense.
A gifted storyteller, Rudy blends scriptural truth with everyday tips and techniques to open up new love relationships with Jesus Christ. She uses humor to encourage women to see today’s challenges as tomorrow’s credentials and to step out in faith to be all they were meant to be.
We had Rudy Wilson Galdonik as our speaker at our women’s winter brunch. She had us spellbound as she shared her spiritual and physical journey as a lifelong heart patient. Rudy spoke with humor and honesty of the joys, struggles and battles she's faced. She had us both laughing and crying. Her story inspired many women that day, not only to look seriously at their own heart health, but also to see the joy of life. Rudy is a delightful woman, very personable, someone who on the first meeting, you feel you have known your whole life. I’d highly recommend her as a speaker.
