What’s on Susan’s Heart?

“My heart beats for the discouraged, defeated Christian, to share the freedom that comes from the abiding life of Jesus Christ. I am passionate to teach. I am available on a limited basis to lead retreats for women or couples on MARRIAGE, the ABIDING LIFE OF CHRIST, and PARENTING. I also speak to teens, and young adults, teaching them that the great big God they learned about in church is not stuck in their Bibles, but offers them life on the edge! I am also available for other speaking engagements and teaching opportunities at your church, Bible study or small group.”

The Marriage Renovation:

From The Marriage Renovation… “You’re in the right place, and I believe that by the end of our journey together, we will have the foundations to restore joy and intimacy. You may be new in your marriage and you’ve never had a major disagreement. Or you may be considering divorce. Or perhaps you are somewhere in between — it’s not terrible but it’s not great — even if you’re disgruntled that marriage is not all it was cracked up to be. Wherever you stand, I reach across the pages to say, so much more is available to you. I’m with you, I’ve crawled through the trenches on my hands and knees. God has broken me in places I didn’t know I had places, and He’s healed me as I never thought possible. Let’s take this journey together.”
