From the Desert

I always look forward to the new year. Everything is fresh and clean, and I usually feel the fullness of hope at a chance to start again. To get right all the things I got wrong last year, to accomplish more, to make a bigger difference in the world around me. And of course, to […]

Sleeper Posts: My All Time Favorites You Might Have Missed

These posts are what I call sleepers. Not for the fact that they received unexpected recognition like the definition says, but rather they are posts I feel speak to my writing brand “Always Real, Sometimes Raw, Definitely Redemptive,”  yet for some reason, they didn’t get a lot of attention, comments, or discussion.

Author Susan Sleeman on Balancing Life

How do you balance being a mom, wife, and writer? My youngest daughter has gone to college now, so I am an empty nester, but I can still remember the struggle of balancing everything. The best way I was able to do that and still am able to balance life is to create a to […]

How to Disable the Disabler and Write What’s Truly Remarkable

As an editor, I love to encourage. It’s one of my favorite parts of my job. But all the encouragement in the world doesn’t matter against the Disabler. Eventually, he finds everyone.
