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.

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.
