Sue Detweiler - Connecting People to Purpose

A project by Sue


Hi, I’m Sue Detweiler, a wife and mom to seven kids (yes, you read that right, seven kids!). I’m also a radio host, teacher, speaker, writer and Christian leader. I’m passionate about using my God-given talents to embrace the story God has written for me, and my desire is to inspire others to do the same. That’s why I’m asking for your help. Through this FaithLauncher campaign, my goal is to raise $25,000 to fund the Media Ministry of Life-Bridges. Life-Bridges is the non-profit my husband Wayne and I started in 2012 to transform, empower and encourage couples and individuals to move forward on their life journey. Our mission to connect people to their purpose.

Through our Media Ministry, we have a unique opportunity to reach people through a variety of multimedia, including radio and television. Recently, through a series of divinely-inspired meetings and circumstances, we have been given the chance to expand our Media Ministry, which currently produces the “Healing Rain” radio feature, a 60-second dose of encouragement from yours truly.

We have already launched the “Healing Rain” radio feature on 35 stations across the nation, and we have four TV networks that have already agreed to air our feature as soon as it is produced. Moreover, we have additional projects in the works, including the chance to broadcast a 30-minute internet radio talk show called “Epic Life Now,” which will engage audiences in real-time. In addition to this we are launching a 24/7 Internet Radio Station that plays positive music and an encouraging message. I’m so excited about all of the new doors God is opening for Life-Bridges’ Media Ministry and the unexpected ways He is showing up.

And that, my friends, is where you come in. I welcome your partnership in helping to bring a message of hope, encouragement and inspiration to people nationwide. I’d love for you to walk this road with me as I take God’s message of hope to the masses. I am asking for your help in funding Life-Bridges’ Media Ministry, which will enable projects like the “Healing Rain” radio feature and “Epic Life Now” to become a reality.


We have 15 tiers of incredible rewards for your contribution as our way to bless you. No contribution is too small. We are deeply grateful for anything you can contribute, whether it be financial resources or, most of all, your prayers.

Like you, God has given me a story. Hosting radio programs and starting Life-Bridges is a part of that unique narrative. I’d like to tell you my story…

As I said, I’m the mother of seven children. To be honest, I wasn't even sure I wanted to be a mom, and when I had my first daughter, I continued to maintain doubts as to whether or not I was cut out to be a parent. In fact, as a brand-new mother, I nearly lost my 5-week-old baby when I awoke to find our home engulfed in flames. By the grace of God, our baby was rescued, but following the devastating fire, I felt like my entire life was “on fire” as I struggled to rebuild our life and our home. I experienced a breakthrough when I realized I couldn't do anything apart from God. Being saved from the fire gave me a heart to help others going through “fires” in their own lives.

As I approached my 30th birthday, I felt God leading me to launch a radio program to encourage young mothers encountering the same struggles of motherhood I was facing head-on. I didn't  by any means, feel like I had mastered motherhood, but I took a leap of faith and followed God out of obedience, launching a syndicated radio feature called “Harmony at Home.”

As my ministry began to grow, I had the opportunity to expand to TV. However, with four children under age 7 at the time, after much prayer, I decided to focus on my growing family. For this season, I also worked as an Associate Pastor, serving as Principal of New Song Christian Academy and overseeing LIFE School of Ministry, an award-winning Bible teaching institute for pastors, leaders, and members of New Song Christian Fellowship.

Just when my life was settling into a nice, steady rhythm, in 2007, God began to soften my heart and my husband’s heart to the idea of adoption. We eventually adopted our two young sons from Brazil.

Today, with the hindsight of almost 29 years of marriage and 23 years of motherhood, I’m more passionate than ever before about ministry. While I’m no longer on staff at the school or the church, these days I’m turning my efforts to writing and speaking. My passion continues to be moms and women of all ages. When I’m not speaking at women’s conferences or working alongside my husband through the work of Life-Bridges, I’m working on my first book. I’m also the founder and host of the weekly ChristianMomTalk podcast, in addition to “Healing Rain” and “Epic Life Now.”


Like me, God has given you a unique story. If you choose to partner with me and to contribute through donations, helping spread the word and your prayers, I want you to know that you are a part of a much larger story that God is writing. Friends, will you be so kind as to walk with me on this journey to build Life Bridges’ Media Ministry? I’m incredibly thankful for your partnership in connecting people to purpose!
