Ready to explore where God is
leading you outside of normal?

Biblical OT people

Trying to live a normal Christian life and it’s not working for you?

Meet 10 women who chose to live outside of normal – outside the expected cultural norms of their day. Their lives made a difference and had a lasting impact.

There are spiritual parallels between our lives and people in the Bible. Their lives teach us valuable lessons about what it means to live by faith outside the status quo. We are enriched by their testimonies, their legacies of risk-taking faith.

In 10 Women Who Made A Difference, Susan shares stories of women who trusted God in difficult situations. Likewise, Susan has walked with God through difficult circumstances – her husband’s battle with cancer when their children were young and being a pastor’s wife, serving churches with various tensions.

Susan’s Bible knowledge, experience and practical approach will encourage you towards a more meaningful relationship with God.
