Join us for an evening of inspiration and insight at our upcoming Executive Speaker Event, "Finding Hope During Challenging Times," featuring the extraordinary Judy Klein. Judy's incredible journey from tragedy to triumph will leave you deeply moved and filled with hope.

A renowned speaker and bestselling author, Judy Landrieu Klein captivated readers with her Amazon Kindle #1 Bestseller in Catholicism, "Miracle Man." In the midst of pursuing a PhD in Bioethics, Judy's late husband, Bernie, suffered a life-altering heart attack that sparked a miraculous deathbed conversion. Motivated by their remarkable story, Judy embarked on a mission to share their journey and offer solace to others in times of profound suffering.

Today, as a devoted wife, mother of five, and Catholic theologian, Judy continues to make a profound impact through her powerful words and unwavering faith. Her second book, "Mary's Way: The Power of Entrusting Your Child to God," released in 2016, further solidified her standing as a beacon of hope in the Catholic community.

With a Masters Degree in Theological Studies from the University of Dallas and post-graduate studies in Bioethics from the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum in Rome, Judy's depth of knowledge shines through in her compelling storytelling. For seven years, she served as an adjunct professor of theology, but tragedy propelled her beyond the classroom walls, urging her to touch as many lives as possible.

Judy's captivating presentations seamlessly weave Catholic theology into real-life narratives, making the faith relevant and relatable to the challenges we all face. Attendees of her talks have described laughing, crying, and being moved to exclaim, "Wow!" Her ability to blend humor, vulnerability, and profound wisdom creates an unforgettable experience. Having graced stages at prestigious conferences like the Fullness of Truth Conference, St. Louis Marian Conference, and Women in the New Evangelization Conference, Judy has proven her ability to connect with diverse audiences. She has also appeared on esteemed Catholic radio and television programs, including EWTN's Women of Grace and Ave Maria Radio's Catholic Connection, leaving a lasting impact wherever she goes.

Join us as Judy Klein imparts her transformative insights. From her personal testimony to thought-provoking subjects such as Holy Hope, Finding the Way in Challenging Times, and Feminine Discipleship in the Image of Mary, Judy's wisdom knows no bounds. Her five years co-hosting Radio Maria's Apologetics Live program have equipped her with extensive experience in Catholic apologetics, further enriching her offerings.

Don't miss this unique opportunity to be inspired, to find hope in the face of adversity, and to witness the power of recovery behaviors. Reserve your spot now and prepare to be moved by Judy Klein's extraordinary journey and her unyielding faith.
