Words come alive on a page when they’re prompted by the Spirit of God and personalized by a gifted writer and speaker/teacher. That’s the blend that communicates so effectively in Susan’s ministry. Knowing her passion for the Word of God and the expressed word for mankind, I can confidently say she “Hears It, Lives It, Writes It, Speaks It”, and that’s a combo that hits the mark!

Susan has a passion for the Word of God that is contagious!   Her presentations provided both information and inspiration;  she  draws from the wellspring of both  a strong foundation of bible study and an intimate walk with the Lord. Our women thoroughly enjoyed her time among us at our Women’s Retreat; she was truly a full participant in the event and engaged our women on many levels throughout the weekend.  I strongly recommend her as a retreat speaker!

We could not have picked anyone better! Susan was inspirational, encouraging and knowledgeable as she delivered the Word from The Lord to our group. Her way of speaking and teaching was easily understood. The quality that stood out to me the most about Susan was her warmth! She made immediate connections with our group and participated with all the activities! She was “One of the Gang”. I highly recommend Susan to anyone wanting a messager from God that is delivered with His Love.

Susan has such a beautiful spirit and was an inspiration to the ladies at our spring banquet. The message was so uplifting and encouraging, and Susan was a wonderful blessing to all of us. I know God is truly working and speaking through her.  The next morning the church was a buzz of excitement as to how she had blessed each of us. I had not seen this kind of excitement in our women or our church family in long time.

Susan spoke at our retreat and despite given the incredibly broad topic of Grace she provided talks that were focused, empowering and engaging.  She has the heart of a teacher and encouraged us all to reflect on God’s word and the message and learn from it.  We look forward to have her at future events.

Being in Bible Study with Susan is a blessing. Her walk of faith is secured by a foundation of biblical knowledge. She builds her life on this foundation, and her roles as a wife, mother, friend and teacher are solidified and personified as she lives out her faith.  She challenges us to take our study of the Word to the next level, balancing her passion with patience and understanding. Over the years we’ve studied, laughed and cried together. Most of all we’ve learned to love the Lord while loving each other.

Juli Murden, Bible study participant

Susan was recommended to me as a first-class speaker for our annual church Women’s Retreat. She, indeed, was nothing short of inspiring and uplifting. Susan captured the audience with her energy and her passion for Jesus Christ. I believe that every woman walked away with special instruction on how to hear God’s word and apply it to her life. Everyone loved her and we hope to have her back.

Susan has a clear understanding of the Scriptures and is a spiritually gifted Bible teacher.  She is able to address real-life issues from a biblical perspective both directly and transparently. Her Bible studies and personal devotions, which she has written for our church, have always been fresh, practical, timely and from the heart.  I am grateful for her commitment and contribution to the fellowship of First Baptist Church of Roanoke.
