“I vividly remember first meeting Susan Joy Simkins when I was leading one of our national “Healing Trauma Through the Arts” conferences in Pennsylvania. As she shared her story the first night of the weekend, I saw many in the audience visibly shaken and moved. I witnessed firsthand breakthroughs among many of the women throughout the weekend. I knew then that Susan was a very special warrior in the Kingdom that God wanted to raise up mightily in the days ahead. I felt this so strongly in my spirit that I approached her at the end of the evening and encouraged her to write and tell her story. She had a gift not only to encourage and uplift others with hope, but most importantly, she gave God the glory.”
