Susan isn't a coffee drinker, but enjoys meeting people at coffee shops! Seated around the coffee table, she enjoys catching up, sharing hearts, and a few good laughs! If you were meeting her for the first time, here are a few things you would discover:
Susan loves Jesus, her husband Tim, a good shopping trip, laughing with good friends, and dark chocolate! All in that order!
You'd also hear numerous stories about her three granddaughters, Aralyn Reese, Julia Brooke, and Eden Sophia.
In addition, Susan is a pastor, a leader in her community, and the author of three books, Confidence Looks Good On You: Exchange the Lie For the Truth of Who You Are In Christ; She Moves On: Rising from Regret, and Her Heart is Free: Rising Healed and Whole. In early 2021, Susan wrote her first women's devotional, The Confident Woman Within! In 2022, Susan wrote a second women's devotional, Bold and Daring Faith.

Susan's writing has been featured multiple times on the Biblegateway Blogger Grid. She and her ministry have been featured in Resilience Magazine, Ilona TV, and Women Worth Following as someone making a difference in the world.
If there was one word to describe Susan it would be passionate. With over two decades of active ministry experience, Susan has filled various roles both within the local church and in faith-based organizations in her community. Whether it is through mentoring women, teaching classes, speaking at events, serving within the federal and state prison settings, writing, connecting with women on her podcast, or having a cup of coffee with a friend, Susan's heart burns with a passion to see women set free from anything holding them back from living the life Jesus came to give them.
She is passionate about helping women see themselves through the eyes of their Creator, not the lens of their past. The freedom Susan has experienced in her own life fuels that passion to boldly proclaim the words of Jesus, "...you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free." (John 8:32)
Susan believes every woman can be awakened to purpose, aligned to kingdom principles, and activated in their gifts through the truth of Scripture. "You were created with and for a purpose. What you're carrying is needed, has value, and is placed within you by God Himself to impact the lives of others for the kingdom!" -Susan
