She is also a popular speaker who shares her heart and wisdom internationally on issues related to marriage, family, women, prayer, leadership, and ministry.

Sue’s most recent book Women Who Move Mountains: Praying with Confidence, Boldness and Grace (Baker Publishing Group, May 2017) will inspire you to develop an intimate friendship with God through prayer and bible study. Filled with testimonies of women who have overcome toxic situations to become powerful women of prayer.

Sue’s first book, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Mom, hit No. 1 on Amazon’s hot new releases for Christian women’s issues. Sue offers help for women who want to be the best mom in the world for their kids, but often feel like the worst. In her honest, transparent way, Sue helps women find peace with imperfections and learn from their mistakes

Sue’s second book, 9 Traits of a Life-Giving Marriage, grew out of her and her husband’s heart to help couples grow closer to God and to each other. In their pastoral ministry to marriages, they have seen how sharing their own struggles can help create a safe context for couples to be transparent and honest with their own issues. Wayne and Sue have also seen God’s transformative power heal and restore marriages through the marriage conferences and workshops they have led.


Sue responded to God’s call on her life out of heart-felt obedience to what the Bible commands. Sue and her husband Wayne began in ministry as youth pastors. They moved to Nashville in 1986, and planted and pastored Harmony Christian Fellowship for nine years. During this time Sue received her Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University.

Sue and Wayne became a part of The Foursquare Church through their next role as associate pastors at New Song Christian Fellowship. Sue had the privilege of overseeing Life School of Ministry, a Bible Training program which help students develop their ministry gifts.
