Sister Judy has published articles in various Franciscan publications under the titles of The Importance of Being Visible, Becoming More Christlike, Growing In The Spirit of Francis and Spiritual Direction.
Her Franciscan formation training and preparation started in 1997 with 6 months discernment training, two years training as a novice, and five years reporting supervision. She completed her Life Profession Vows in September of 2007. About her choice to follow in the steps of Francis she says, “It wasn’t really much of a choice, God kept tugging on my sleeve and leading me in the direction of a life lived in companionship with Him. I have been trying to fit my small steps into His very large footprints in this world ever since.”
