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.
In preparing for our Ladies Spring Brunch, we were so blessed to have found Rudy as our special speaker. As I coordinated this event, Rudy returned my phone calls, promptly. She carefully listened to all I had to say and graciously gave me all the time I needed. She helped me by telling me what other groups had done in the past, and she e-mailed me some information to put in our invitations and flyers. She asked me good questions so as to suit her message to our unique group.
Rudy arrived early. She was very personable and friendly and showed an interest in our ladies. In Rudy’s presentation, she made us laugh with her funny stories. But she shared her personal losses and struggles with great sensitivity and grace in a way that many could relate to. Rudy is a master storyteller, humble, engaging and inspiring. All were absorbed and attentive for a full hour. Afterwards she lingered, leaving a parting encouragement. I would highly recommend Rudy as a special speaker. She was perfect for us!!
