Hi, I'm Susan. I write in the wilderness, literally and spiritually. Can a city woman become a rancher? A former homeschooling mom, can she run a hazmat site? What are the odds a Chicago children's pastor would go live among Indians, out West? Those are some of the adventures I write about.
Mainly, I share pieces of my memoir, writing naked and unashamed, because my life message is that hitting rock bottom and losing everything can be the defining moment of your life.
On the other side of rejection, abandonment, and betrayal is the place where you find your true self. You don't have to achieve, perform, or do anything to be loved, valued, and accepted. You are not too much; you are enough.
My goal is to take as many hurting women as I can on a journey deep into the Father's heart, a place where widows are transformed into brides and orphans receive a family and a home.

This blog began with a burning vision, back in 2010….
I saw women and children who had been abused boldy and vulnerably sharing their stories. These life stories were published, creating thousands of new family legacies. Their writing created beauty out of chaos, as they re-framed their past and re-wrote their future.
I saw families not only living together, but working as family entreprenuers and inventors. Families truly became the backbone of society – spiritually, governmentally, socially, and economically.
I saw justice and righteousness racing to join beauty and truth. The artists and inventors, the women and children, the disabled and despised, the misfits and broken ones were leading the way.
We can write ourselves into a better world!
Let us pick up our books and pens. They are the most powerful weapons. – Malala Yousafzai, seventeen-year old winner of the Nobel Peace Prize
This peaceful place is the staging area where we wage war, as heart scribes, and we write to freedom. We share our stories with each other. We use empathetic listening to heal our souls.
I Write About…
Abuse-free Zones – what sociopathic abuse is and how to release yourself from its hold.
Life Reinvention – strategies to create beauty out of chaos and to get your life back.
Writing your Memoir – writing prompts, inspiration, sample stories, and more!
Love from Papa – love letters from Papa that fueled and guided my escape to freedom.
Hope for Survivors – inspiration and education on surviving a pathological relationship.
I am building a community of writing warriors who confront injustice, unrighteousness, and oppression. We speak up for victims who have been silenced. We are an alarm clock, awakening good people who are not yet educated about the spiritual and domestic violence that is happening in our own homes, churches, and communities. We employ strategies to create abuse-free zones.
We cannot afford to be evil's silent accomplice. We do not extend easy grace to unrepentent, ongoing abusers. We are no longer the hunted. We are warriors who fight with Truth, in Love. We walk in intimacy with our Savior, Christ Jesus, but we confront the evil that happens inside church doors and closed systems of spiritual abuse.
How do we accomplish our mission? We write our memoirs. It's in the writing that we understand our past. Writing unearths the treasures and we sow them like seeds into our future. In the process, identity is restored, and with it, our inheritance. We are restoring the backbone of society – the family.
