Customer Reviews of Holy Homes & Pious Poems:
"Spirit is clearly the energy that made this wonderful book possible. It is a joy to read and beautifully presented."
"I am the proud owner of Judith's book! This is not a book you read only once and place on the book shelf!
When I am feeling stressed and need some inspiration I turn to her poetry and beautiful photos!
When I have guests I place the book next to the bedside! "
"Judith did a wonderful job of writing the poems and the photography is incredible. This book is well worth owning and giving as a gift. Very inspirational! "
"This book is perfect for your home as it displays amazing pictures to go along with magical poetry. So nice to have in the rush of daily life to welcome you home at the day's end. This book will fill you with comfort and peace and it reminds us of the many God-given blessings we have with splendor, grandeur, simplicity and grace. Also, a perfect gift for any occasion or anytime of the year. "
"I own this book and love it. The wording, rhyming, and most impressively, the love and heart in every line makes reading each poem an experience. It is a must have for any poet lover. It's not overwhelmingly religious, just enough to get you thinking. Overall, it is a beautiful book inside and out. With its breathtaking pictures, amazing creativeness, and Judith's uncanny use and way of words, this book becomes not only a great gift, but a conversation piece and a household necessity. I highly recommend it...Enjoy! "
"If you are looking for a Christmas present that puts Christ back in Christmas, then this book is it. The poems and photos are a beautiful and a heart-warming expression of God's love that you will want to read again and again. Proceeds go to charity, so you are giving twice. Some of the book can be previewed by googling Judith Kittredge and clicking on the title. More expensive, extra deluxe, color, hardback and inexpensive, simpler, smaller, black & white versions are available on Blurb.com, but the best buy for the money is the very reasonable color version that is on Amazon.

“Oh, Judith...this is beautiful. We often do not think of Winter as a time of spiritual renewal, because we get so caught up in the survival of the cold, and colds, the extraneous stresses of commercialism (Christmas, unfortunate, but true)....school, and work all the while. "While seed is renewing underground". This is what we should be focusing on. Thank you.”
“Miss Judith, oh how beautiful!”

“This brought tears to my eyes. Our dad has Dementia, and is slowly heading towards the Alzheimer's stage of it. If it's only in your book, please let us know where to buy it.”
“You have just made me cry. I have someone dear to me that has Alzheimer's. You have in this poem expressed all that I have experienced. My faith in God keeps me strong and makes me a soldier of Faith in Jesus, our King of Kings. With Him by my side I fear nothing. With Him by my side all of life's difficulties and traumas have very little effect on me. He protects me. The truth is powerful, Judith, and it truly does set you free. You truly are a gem and I look forward to reading all of your poetry. It is an honor to have you as a friend. May God eternally bless you, Judith. My prayers are with you. :-) “

“Laurent-Andre' Elliott "Holy Homes & Pious Poems" is Judith Kittredge's second book of moving, touching and honest poetry with messages that unravel deep and complex subjects into wonderful, simple and uncomplicated verses. Kittredge has a fresh approach on spiritual quests, pains, joys and peace. This book is just as bold and creatively inspired as her first. Those looking to have their minds tweaked and soothed should certainly buy this book."

“Judith, this is so Beautiful! I especially Loved the First Photo in Winter Chapter... though they're all Lovely! And what a Darling Presentation! Love it!”
“You are an inspiration to us all who read your beautiful words of hope, prayers, beauty, and life. Thank you!”
“I bought Judith's first book "Pious Poems & Holy Homes" last spring. I highly recommend it as it does sooth your soul. The poems are wonderful and the photos amazing. I love to visit and take photos of old historic holy homes when I travel. I especially love part on The Little Chapel of the Roses at Glen Abbey Memorial Park in Bonita, CA. My beloved Grandparents and favorite Aunt are buried there. I too as a child, use to feed the swans and spent many, many hours of my childhood walking the grounds, ..........was so peaceful to me.”
