Susie came and spoke to my MOPS group last year. She told her story to our group, weaving in her experience with breast cancer as well as her time in Uganda. She connected so easily and well to all of the moms in our group, and was so vulnerable and transparent. In fact, she shared a bit about how a recent move had some difficult aspects to it, and I have had a few friends ask me if she is okay! It’s certainly easy to love Susie as soon as you meet her! Susie wove scripture throughout her talk, and communicated truths from the Bible to us. She spoke from her heart to my group, and in turn reached our hearts. I would highly recommend Susie as a speaker to you!
