Her concerts have taken her to various churches, clubs, prisons, women's retreats, and senior citizen's groups, and even a tour of Israel where she plans to organize future trips. She has appeared on various television and radio programs and hosted a television program entitled "Gentle Moments" for many years. She frequently speaks on the subject "How to Have Peace in the Midst of Turmoil,” and also when asked demonstrates her musical instruments involving audience participation using various rhythm instruments. Judy's concerts consist of new contemporary gospel songs, Scripture choruses, and some of the old gospel favorites. She frequently accompanies herself on various instruments such as the hammer dulcimer, auto harp, keyboard, and the Q-chord. Judy's concerts consist of the sharing of her testimony, as well as scriptures and uplifting words of encouragement.
