I am a wife, mother, writer, and international speaker...

She is a sought after conference and retreat speaker inspiring thousands of women

each year with her messages of hope.

Sue recently authored When You Feel Like Screaming:Practical Help for Frustrated Moms which is available on Amazon, is the contributor to multiple books including What I Wish I Had Known, and is a regularly featured writer for Focus on the Family and Faithlife publications. Her greatest passion is to encourage women to love and lean on God in every aspect of their lives.

Her greatest blessing and joy is that of being a wife to Curt, for over 35 years, and mom
to four adult sons who, along with their spouses, continue to add grandchildren to their
lives. Sue and Curt recently wrapped up their work at The Gatehouse in Grapevine, TX, a supportive living community where women in crisis receive safe refuge and practical
resources. They now reside back in their home state of Illinois.

What People are Saying

We started Girlfriend’s Retreat 27 years ago and Sue Heimer definitely has become a favorite among our gals! We recently invited her back for a second time. She instantly connects with the audience no matter how diverse. She is fun, which just makes her adorable but trust me, she will deliver a strong Word from the Lord. She will encourage, teach and challenge each listener in a kind and loving way.

- Sandy Johnson

Women’s Ministries & Retreat Director for the Oklahoma District Church of the Nazarene

"Sue is one of those special people who is both deeply wise and absolutely delightful at the same time. That is a rare combination! It is wonderful to see the amazing things that God had done through her ministry to touch so many lives – including mine.”


- Shaunti Feldhahnsocial researcher, speaker and best-selling author of For Women Only.

"Sue is not only a gifted communicator, she is the one who will have women crying 'Me too!' and 'I thought I was the only one.' With her honest and hope filled message, women will transform guilt into freedom, shame into community,
and doubt into gratitude for the very big God who adores us and saves us all."

- Kathi Lipp, Author of The Husband Project, Praying God’s Word for Your Life, and I Need Some Help Here- Hope for When Your Kids Don’t Go According to Plan
