Suzzy is a native Californian, with a ready smile
and an infectious laugh, who sees Bible lessons in
even the most mundane of situations. As a child, she
was labeled as “retarded” because of the
learning disabilities she struggled with. She was able
to overcome her difficulties in learning and actually
became an elementary school teacher.
When her children were born, Suzzy left education
and started a
catering business. This business thrived for 18 years,
and all the while Suzzy was collecting stories and
vignettes for Bible lessons and the books she has had
in her head to write.
At age 39, Suzzy ruptured a disk in her neck and her
busy world came to a standstill, which gave her the
opportunity to reassess her life. During this time
of “waiting on the Lord“, Suzzy drew strength
from the apostle Paul, who, in 2 Corinthians 4, reminds
us not to lose heart, that even though we are in the
process of decay in our physical bodies, the inward
man continues to grow, becoming renewed.
After recovering from surgery, Christ revealed a way
that she could impact others for His purpose, and Suzzy
began a small women’s Bible study in her church.
That small Bible study grew into a large one containing
eighty or more women at times and now has a sister
study in a neighboring city.
Over the past ten years, Suzzy has taught biblical
concepts to literally hundreds of women. A listing
of the topics on which she has taught is included in
the topics area of this website.
Suzzy is the author of two books. Apples to Applesauce:
Finding the Right Recipe for God’s Purpose is
a guide to help women not merely focus on their desires,
but to fulfill God’s planned purpose for their
lives. Her second book, My Empty Nest Has an Iguana
In It, is a humorous but practical study in preparing
for and dealing with the “empty nest”.
With insights not only from Suzzy, but also from her
husband Ron and comments from Eddie the Iguana.
Suzzy has been married for over 30 years, has two
grown children and lives in Valencia, California.
