Board of Directors

Sue Liljenberg

Founder & President

Sue is the Founding Director of Healing Hearts Ministries and currently serves as Executive Director. Healing Hearts Ministries was birthed from Sue’s personal experience with an abortion at the age of 18 and all of the emotional and physical complications that followed. In 1982, she experienced healing from her abortion through Jesus Christ and felt led to comfort other women who have experienced the same trauma. Using the Bible as a foundation, she has counseled women since 1984 and is the author of three Bible studies that have ministered to women, men, and youth across the United States and around the world. Her story has been shared with thousands over radio, television, at women’s conferences, and in churches across the United States. Her radio show was broadcast on KGNW in Seattle, Washington for six years.

Sue was married to Gary Liljenberg in 1984 and is the stepmother to his three sons, Tim, Tom, and Mark and a proud grandmother of three granddaughters, Emma, Malia and Mikayla. Sue is a former Boeing employee and her husband recently retired from Boeing with 45 years of service.
