I’m an author who writes about the working mom’s struggle to live out an authentic Christian faith in a complex and fast-paced world. I live in constant need of grace, caffeine, and technology — usually in that order.  I’m represented by Literary Agent Rachelle Gardner.

Like most women today, I wear many hats.  I’m a mother, wife, author, lawyer, daughter, sister, and friend who loves coffee, red wine, and dark chocolate. I’ve been married to my high-school sweetheart for almost 20 years, and my greatest joy is raising my son and two daughters to know and love God.  In 2010, I released my memoir, Chasing Superwoman:  A Working Mom’s Adventures in Life and Faith.  I blog about work, home, and faith, and serve as a contributing editor at The High Calling.

Join me every Friday for the Working Mom’s Devotional where we ask God to help us tackle the tough issues —  including guilt, child-rearing, and multi-tasking addictions.

    Susan, what a delight it was to discover your website and resources! After praying for the need to connect with other Christian working mothers (all of my same-age female friends are stay-at-home moms or are professionals who don’t have children), I found your webpage. Thank you for focusing on this topic and for providing a space to share and learn from one another. I look forward to reading more.

    After comments from other working moms who go to my church about the lack of a Bible study at a time when we can attend (seems like they are all at 09:00 am on Tuesdays!), I started looking for a Bible study or book that we could organize ourselves and schedule at a time that works for us. I discovered your blog. Most of the women who are involved in our church in positions to organize events are stay at home moms, so they plan events at times that the working moms can’t realistically attend. I hope to review your books to see if we could read them as a study group this summer.
