Hi, my name is Susan Bailey. Welcome!
You can contact me at email@example.com
I am an author, speaker and musician.
I love what I do because I get to share with you a beautiful truth, revealed to me after a long season of loss and grief–that life can begin again.
That “joie de vivre,’ gone because of illness, depression, grief, financial difficulties and other hardships, can be restored. Our lives can again become vibrant and creative, with an infectious joy that spills over to everyone around us.
I know because I have been there and back again.
Don’t get me wrong–this is not about quick fixes or practical self-help tips.
Rather, it’s about a journey of faith, trusting in the Divine Guide who will take your hand, guide you lovingly, shape you, show you who you are in all your splendor, and then lead you on to new and wonderful experiences.
Life becomes an adventure again.
It is how this God who knows us intimately and loves us beyond telling, reveals himself in our common, everyday experiences.
I write about a wide variety of topics, from kayaking trips to live kitten cams; from favorite books to inspiring music; from the wonders of the natural world to the challenges and joys of family and friends. The theme is the same all the way through: everything in our lives points back to God.
Be as One is about becoming one with our Creator. Learn more from this video.
We all experience times of mourning, and of dancing.
My mourning lasted ten years.
We went through financial hardships. My parents died after long and difficult illnesses.The nest became empty. I lost my singing voice.
As I struggled with grief and fear, God invited me to come on a journey … one that turned my mourning back into dancing.
My time of dancing began with a kayak . . .
. . . so that at age 59 I became a published author of two books!
Not at all what I expected!
What an adventure!
Like me, you too can know the exhilaration of discovering who you are and what you are meant give to the world.
That’s when the joy of living is restored.
