Susan Owen’s Walk for Freedom
I am Susan Owen and I have been a Healing Hearts Bible study leader since 1993. It has been a privilege to be a part of this ministry as it was through the study, Binding Up the Brokenhearted that I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. It has been such a blessing to walk the journey of hope and healing with other women through both Binding Up the Brokenhearted and the Hem of His Garment.
These studies are so amazing because they are based on the Bible and a funnel for God’s love and grace into the lives of the women who do it. Before I took this study, I was a lost soul looking in all the wrong places for happiness. I did not understand God’s love nor did I understand the great sacrifice Jesus made for me. This study took me deep into the work of the cross and beckoned me to confess and repent of my sin and gave me a hunger to know His Word. And to share this with other women!
Through the on-going training, I receive from Healing Hearts and the certification process we do each year, I am able to walk with other women as they come to know God’s grace for themselves. It doesn’t matter how “bad” we think we are…His grace and mercy cover all!
Even though this past year has brought much consternation for all, the ministry has continued to reach those who are wounded by hurtful life circumstances. It seems that Zoom is a household word now!
This year my walk is to help Healing Hearts with the funding to expand our teen ministry. This project is to focus on ministering to at risk teens in the inner cities. The vision for this project is to partner with inner city churches that are like-minded with Healing Hearts and help them minister to teens at risk by providing them with our youth bible studies and mentoring at no cost. God has already been using the materials in an inner city Bible Club in Detroit.
The following is a video clip from a church in Chicago who are interested in this project:
And now we have contacts in Seattle, Albuquerque, and New Jersey.
God had abundantly blessed us with a grant that will enabled us to finish and distribute our new men’s study, “The Good Fight…God’s Plan for Every Man”. Please pray for those who hope to bring this project across the finish line soon.
I hope you will consider supporting me again….and this wonderful ministry that changed my life!
In His Love,
WA State Coordinator
