12/28/2012 2:16:00 PM Randy Krulish to speak at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Jan. 6
Randy Krulish, a farm boy from Lyle, will be the guest speaker at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church Sunday, Jan. 6, at 3 p.m.
Krulish, a quadriplegic since he was a young boy, is the author of "Walk: My Journey of Faith and Discovery After Paralysis."
There is no charge to attend and dessert, coffee and juice will be served following a question-and-answer session with Randy following his presentation.
Chris Elzenga, a member of St. Francis Xavier, heard Krulish speak and suggested the church bring him to Windom to allow others to hear his story of inspiration and hope.
Krulish has lived 46 years in a wheelchair after suffering a broken neck when he was 12 yearsold. The experiences he's had as a quadriplegic allows him to show how family and faith can give hope to others who have also had a life-changing accident. The darkness and despair leads to light and love for others with God's gifts.
Today, Randy views life with a different set of eyes, which allows him to share with others a life seen by few. From a frightened boy, he has grown into a man filled with hope and compassion.
Randy is a retired educator living in Lyle. He lives a fairly independent lifestyle, in his own apartment, with the help of attendants who come at various times throughout the day.
Krulish's book will be available for purchase and signing following the question-and-answer session.
