Sandra P. Aldrich

Meet Sandra P. Aldrich, president of Bold Words, Inc., whose often humorous presentations feature the importance of solid relationships – to God, family, friends and self.

In addition, she has written and spoken on joyful living, marriage and family issues, grief, single parenting and family communication.

A popular speaker at women’s and couples’ retreats, college chapels, single-parent conferences, and Focus on the Family events, Sandra’s Kentucky storyteller style has made her a much requested guest on numerous radio and TV shows.

After her husband’s death, Sandra raised a 10-year-old son and an 8-year-old daughter. Today, both are newlyweds who keep their mom well supplied with illustrations.

Sandra holds a Master’s degree from Eastern Michigan University (and, she says, a "Ph.D. from the School of Hard Knocks"). Her career includes 15 years as a public school teacher in the Detroit area, a stint on the grief counseling team for a funeral home chain and nine years in Christian ministry that included several years as senior editor of Focus on the Family Magazine.
