I met Susan Mead when she invited me to join her launch team for her book, Dance With Jesus (affiliate link). She also wrote a guest post for the Literacy Musing Mondays community. Her testimony and love for God are breathtaking.
I love this statement that I found on her blog. Susan writes a message that is simple, yet profound, “A moment in time does not define you, yet how you respond to it does.”
I hope you enjoy her profile.
Susan Mead: Biography
Susan Mead is an author, speaker, chaplain and mom with an MBA. She wrote the book, Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace, which hit #1 Amazon Hot New Release in Christian Grief on launch day. Susan spent 22+ years in corporate America with Johnson & Johnson and retired 10-years early as she realized things get broken, discarded and replaced in life, yet people matter… and she wanted to spend time with those who matter most to her.
Susan also learned God shines the brightest light in the darkest moments and shows up when we need him most. She now shares her journey to inspire, empower and equip others… You too can find grace in the midst of grief and calm in the chaos.
Susan Mead: Gospel story, How she came to know Christ as her Savior
My mother introduced me to Jesus Christ at an early age. She taught me I am never alone and to hold His hand, always. Literally! When I pray, my hands are typically tightly clasped as I’m holding on for dear life!
Her Favorite Verse and How It Became Important to Her
For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go.
This is my life verse.
As I sat in the grandstands at the 2013 Boston Marathon, the first bomb exploded directly across the street. The 2nd bomb exploded a block away. I felt the intense heat and my ears rang for 18+ months and 8 seconds later.
And I prayed, For He orders His angels to protect you wherever you go.
And He did and He does. I see it as my 911! prayer. See it? Psalm 91:11 = 911!

Last Minute Thoughts On Inspiration and Uplifting
These things inspire me butterflies, dragonflies, flowers, fawns, nature in all its glory and majesty. Blue water and white sand. All gifts from God.
God loves you. Uniquely and eternally. Bask in His glory as you rest in His profound presence. He holds you so very dear. Sit in the lap of your Father, the King, and rest your weary head on His mighty chest. Let His gracious hands hold yours. Do you feel it? Your soul settles and joy simply is. Yes, be still and know…
Now DANCE! Dance with Jesus™.
