I’m Susan Call, mom, wife, encourager, speaker, author, sea glass jewelry maker, and hobby photographer.
Why I speak and write:
The longer I’ve lived, the more I realize that we all have “stuff.” We can have been broken, but don’t need to live broken. We’re not alone in life’s messes!
I love finding wisdom in everyday life, encouraging others, and helping others find hope. I know that life can be really tough,but God is bigger than all of our struggles.
My memoir, A Search for Purple Cows, published by Guidepost Books was named as the grand prize winner of Inspiring Voices Book Publishing Contest. A Search for Purple Cows is a story of betrayal, abuse, finding faith and hope, the power of forgiveness, and the joy of redemption. Above all else, it’s a reminder that God is the God of the impossible!
I enjoy speaking with groups of all sizes. If you’re planning an event for your group, please contact me. I’d love to work with you!
A little more about me:
I love the beach – listening to the waves while feeling the ocean breeze on my face and smelling the salty ocean air. I also love New England in the fall with all the deep beautiful brilliant colors.
I’m a very proud mom to my daughter and son, and thrilled to be a stepmom too. I’ve lived a crazy life’s journey from open heart surgery to surviving infidelity, an alcoholic emotionally abusive husband, and a difficult divorce.
I’m excited to be on the speaking and writing team for Encouragement Café.
I’m looking forward to teaching a breakout session at Carol Kent’s Speak Up Conference this July.
I love kayaking with my family.
I enjoy taking Hailey, my golden retriever for walks.
I speak Swedish and I’m learning Spanish.
I’ve been on two mission trips to the Dominican Republic and met two of our sponsor children.
My husband and I sponsor 3 boys with Compassion International (Yostin and Carlos in the DR, and Tima in Kenya.)
I love brownies.
I’m gluten free.
