My Story, Susan J Nelson
I’m Sue Nelson. Christian blogger, author and speaker.
I was raised in a Catholic home, but often struggled with what I was taught. When my mother became ill, I began to seek. I thought that maybe a different denomination would make more sense to me.
At 31, I gave my life to Christ. You can read my testimony on this page.
As I grow closer to God and read about the Proverbs 31 woman, I felt drawn to reaching that ideal the best I could. For me, for God and for my family.
The more I studied the Word, I started to see how I could practically apply the values of that Proverbs 31 woman in my life today.
Not long ago. one of our Pastors shared with me that my husband was telling him about my work with Christian women. He told our pastor that not only do I teach Proverbs 31, I live it. I melted into a puddle and praised God.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” – Proverbs 31:28-29
I homeschooled my children (now all grown!) and found a wonderful Bible teaching church. I not only attended Bible study but studied on my own.
While I’ve never attended seminary, I am thirsty for the Word of God. I have attended courses, completed various studies under many different teachers and spend regular time studying new methods for Bible study.
As I studied, I developed methods and learned things that I felt would bless others, too. I turned these into my current books and courses and share tons of great posts and Bible reading plans on my site to help others strengthen their relationship with our Heavenly Father.
I want that for you, too, dear sister.
