nice to meet you

I´m Susannah

I’m a writer, Bible study teacher, and founder of Restore. After walking through my own journey of healing and restoration, I love to help other people restore through relationship with Jesus Christ as well. Yes, the darkness is great and pain from our past and present is real. But the power of Jesus to save, heal, and restore is greater still.

Your greatest sorrows are seeds for your greatest joys. And it’s a journey I’m willing for us to take together. You ready?

Then let’s dive in. Let your adventure begin.

my story

I grew up in Houston, Texas with a desire to go on the overseas mission field to help people as a medical doctor, but there was only one problem: my brain turned to mush during math and science! While spending my junior year of college at Wheaton College, I heard one of my professors, Lyle Dorsett, say words that forever changed my life: “Some of you in this room want to be medical doctors. But God is raising up a generation of people, some of whom are in this room, to be doctors of the soul.” At that moment, the direction of my life changed. I knew God was calling me to be a doctor of the soul and to help people heal through connection and restorative relationship with Jesus Christ. I came home to Texas, graduated from Texas A&M University, and moved to Houston to begin my own journey of healing and restoration. In normal, everyday life, I regularly encounter the power of God to save and restore normal, everyday people like you and me through His Word and prayer. I love to write resources for people to use in their own healing journey, teach Bible Studies, and lead Restore retreats with one amazing group of women!

Apart from Jesus Christ, my greatest love is my husband, Jason, of twenty years, and my four beautiful daughters, one of whom we adopted from China. As a family, we love spending time together with God in His Word, on our knees in prayer, and asking Him to use us together for Restoration for a Generation. Most days, you can find me at home with my family, writing, teaching, and praying for healing for people in my generation, connecting with women over coffee or on a run, or on a hike in the mountains whenever I get the chance for an adventure.
