I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace. Acts 20:24

I aspire to live my life by remembering this passage. Everyday is a struggle to even come close to this.

This is me: JudiFree:


I am married to the most wonderful, genuine, and gifted man on the planet. The amazing Mark Thomas.

    I just came across your blog through the WordPress Dashboard from my blog (http://jackinablog.wordpress.com). My wife and I were intending on being “baby free” as well, but God had other plans – and we love it. Anyway, I work at Zondervan in the marketing department and if you are interested, I would like to send you some books that you might enjoy and potentially review on your blog. If not, no biggie. you can email me at chris dot fann at zondervan dot com. Grace, and Peace.

    Your blog is very inspiring. I look forward to reading it in greater depth.

    As a result of discussions we’ve had at the church I attend, I decided to start a blog to inform our members about mass media electronic safety issues. I’m very, very new to blogging. I wonder if you would be willing to go to http://mediasafety.wordpress.com, take a quick look, and offer any suggestions you may have.

    Thanks. Many blessings to you.

    JudiFree! I wrote a post today with you in mind so I linked to you there. It was about Running 101. I remember when you commented on Spence’s blog about wanting to start running because he was so inspiring and that’s exactly how it was for me. I started and am now sharing some basics as I go through the process of learning. Just thought I would say hi! and wish you the best in training & life! You can find the post here: http://beyondjems.wordpress.com/2008/06/16/running-101-my-pain-is-your-gain/ Love your blog! Amy

    Hey Judith its Brian from church! I am now on wordpress as well! Blogroll me and i’ll blogrolly you. (kind of like Michael W. Smith…pray for me, and i’ll pray for you…) Also, we need to get together and talk about the volunteer promotion idea you have that you told sarah about. Let me know when you are free…or make that JudiFree.

    Hi Judy!
    Great blog! I love your post on Sweaty Sundays. It reminds me I am not alone. Sometimes when I am leading worship, I feel sweat running down my eyelid or my chin, and I get a little conscious. But you know what? What is bursting from our hearts matters more.
    Blessings from the Central Valley of California!

    You look like a rock star ;-)

    Julien – that’s my favorite compliment!

  16. Judi Free July 22, 2008 at 8:48 pm #

    Just for the heckofit I googled my name and was so suprised to find your blog. I thought my name was unusual enough that there wouldn’t be someone else with the exact same one…I guess we’re not as unique as we think!

  17. JudiFree.com July 22, 2008 at 8:55 pm #

    My name isn’t actually Judi Free….ha! My last name isn’t “FREE”. Judi Free is my nickname. My name is actually Judith Thomas…


  18. Morgan July 30, 2008 at 4:35 pm #

    I ran across your blog today and I really related to what you have here on your blog. I have added you to my blogroll and was wondering if you might add me to yours? Either way, thanks for the great experience of visiting your site. I’ll be back. Thanks Morgan

    Hi Judi! well, this is the first time i have ever been on your blog (i got the address from ashley) and i have to tell you. i think you are amazing. i feel inspired more than i have for a long time just from reading what you have to say about your life. you are so beautiful and funny and i feel cheated that i have not gotten to know you more as you have been in my family for so long. i can only aspire to be as positive a person as you are. i feel that i have been blessed by learning more about who you are and things that i want to be from this blog. anyway, i guess i was just taken by surprise by how entertaining your page is. but…..the reason i was coming on your blog is because i wanted to invite you to sam’s 8th birthday next saturday. i know it is kind of late notice (august snuck up on my pretty fast) but if you and marky could make it that would be great. now that we are in the denver area, i would like to be more in touch with everybody. so….if you arent doing anything, the party is next saturday, aug. 16th at 1pm at our house. we are going to have a bbq and then go swimming at the neighborhood pool. you can call me or email me to let me know and i can give you the address if you can make it. my number is 970-381-0657 and my email is lyoxsimer@yahoo.com. i hope you have a wonderful day. tell marky i said hi! hope to hear from you.
    love you! bye!

    Hello Pretty Lady!!! I’m the photographer from Jamye’s wedding that was admiring your mad hair skills! I wanted to touch base with you and see if you were still up for doing a hair do for Sunday (after church of course). :) I thought about calling, but wasn’t sure if it was too late. Hmmmm…
    Give me a shout out if you can, otherwise I’ll give you a call! My phone # is also listed on the website. :)
    Oh, one more thing…about ready to post Jayme’s wedding blog. Can I direct people to your blog? You may drum up some business if you like. :)

  21. Anginet Page September 27, 2008 at 9:17 am #

    I’m so glad you’re up for tomorrow. I sent you an email, but sometimes my emails go to spam. So look for it. :) I called you last afternnon but I think I only have your work number. Doh!

    Hi Judi,
    I was going to comment on your posts everytime you update it but unfortunately your URL in my site always goes to Judifree.com/remote login. I don’t understand. I tried all the other avenue until I just did a search on google. I hope it’s ok to comment again.

  23. Lindsay Yoxsimer October 28, 2008 at 9:27 pm #

    Hey girl! Well I don’t remember if i have ever gotten your address or not, but I have an invitation to Malea’s 2nd birthday in my purse that has been in there a week and have yet to take getting your address off my to-do list. So, i thought I would just invite you on your blog instead. The party is Sat. Nov. 8th from 12:30-whenever. It is going to be at the rec center and swimming will be after pizza and cake (optional of course). So if you can make it that would be great. you can just email me and let me know or call 970-381-0657. But if you could email me your address anyway that way when christmas card time comes up I won’t have to ask again! I know Tiff is going to be at a craft show that day and I am hoping Rita will bring the kids but I dont have her address or phone number either so I dont know at this point. anyway, let me know either way. Tell Marky i said hi. talk to you later,
    Love you– Lindsay

    I’ll be back to visit. Nice to find you.

    When someone writes an article he/she maintains the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can
    know it. So that’s why this paragraph is outstdanding. Thanks!
