Hi, I’m Susan. On my blog I share encouragement to survive the jungle of everyday life. I’m a speaker and the author of A Search for Purple Cows, A True Story of Hope.
I believe that we’ve all faced challenges. We’ve all had our share of those days. But, we don’t have to figure this thing called life all out before we allow ourselves to smile, laugh, hope, and really live. When we realize that in life we can be broken but we don’t need to remain broken, we free ourselves to embrace life despite the mess.
Living forward, dreaming big, and pursuing our impact on this world are all possible starting right where we are with what we have. No matter how difficult our struggles are, God is bigger. Why do I believe all that? I’m a survivor of domestic abuse, an alcoholic spouse, infidelity, and open heart surgery – just to name a few ‘highlights.’ Through it all, I’ve found the value of a kind word, a friend’s shoulder and a word of encouragement.
If you could use encouragement for your journey, this is the place for you!
On average I publish one article a week. Sign up so that you don’t miss one. When you do, you’ll get a free download of my intentional living goal calendar.
