Judy Klein - Memorare Ministries

          Welcome! I’m grateful that you’ve taken precious time to visit my website and I invite you to linger a while. I pray that you’ll find in these pages a place of hope, beauty and refreshment. In short, a little oasis of peace in this stress-filled, chaotic world. In our busy lives, we yearn to find a sanctuary where we can rest and renew. Moreover, we long for a setting where we can experience God’s restoring presence, and remember his promises and his goodness. My humble prayer is that you’ll find a hint of that sweet presence here, especially through the words and whispers birthed in silent reflection. It is my joy to share those musings with you in this quiet space, and my ardent prayer that you’ll find in them a source of hope, consolation and encouragement. So take a deep breath, grab a cup of warm cappuccino and take a moment to relax! And if you’d like, write me a note. I’d love to hear your words and whispers, too.


         Grace, peace and blessings to you and yours,

The pre-dawn fried chicken cooking sprees, where Mama prepared enough of the delectable bird to feed ten hungry children for a long day of parades. The bountiful bags of […]

Are We Seeking Miracles or Magic?

Take, Lord, and receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding and my entire will, all I have and call my own. You have given all to me. To you, Lord, I return it. Everything is yours; do with it what you will. Give me only your love and your grace, that is enough for […]
