What Others are Saying

I have often wanted to write to you (like after every one of your emails or posts since I began receiving them) because they have spoken volumes to me as we are in the same season of life. I so appreciate your “realness” and being open and talking about the issues that women in our stage of life may be struggling with. It is nice to know I’m not alone. When I read your stuff I feel as if a friend is speaking truths and words of wisdom into my heart and mind.

Susan coached me during a very stressful and difficult time in my life. She provided love and insight so that I could once again focus on Jesus and Jesus only. She answered all my questions and concerns while gently pointing me to Him. My relationship with the Lover of my Soul was strengthened because she didn’t become the door to Him but simply the guide to the door.
