Author/Speaker Sue Moore Donaldson, would love to speak at your next event!
Sue Moore Donaldson speaks to connect women to the welcoming heart of God and to each other. Sue’s invitation to a deeper life with God is combined with the biblical challenge to be a woman who welcomes, as she challenges us to invite others into our lives and homes (for heaven’s sake!) A popular retreat and conference speaker, Sue shares from her own vulnerability—“a work in progress or a piece of work – depending on the day” as she likes to say, and audiences connect to her authentic approach to God’s Word spoken with grace and humor.
Sue’s style is so comfortable–she’s like a good friend sitting in your living room encouraging you with God’s word and coffee cake! She’s a special speaker whose message lingers.
–Belinda Burton, Director of Women’s Ministry – Cornerstone Church, Long Beach, CA
Note from Sue: “I so love how God works His timing and message to combine these talks with His audiences. It really is all about Him, and that’s a good thing – no, a great thing! If these talks aren’t exactly what your group is looking for, let’s talk! And if there’s enough time to tailor make something new for you, He will make it happen.”
Retreat Series Topics
The seven retreat series can be modified to fit your scheduling needs. Each include outlines, small group discussion questions, and four weeks of email follow-up pages to encourage individual and community spiritual growth. Sue is willing to fit the theme and needs of your group depending on the time allotted and God’s leading.

Oswald Chambers said, “My worth to God in public what I am in private.” Gaining strength for our daily journey comes from digging deep with God, consistently and intimately, with the ultimate goal to know Him better and love Him more.
- THE HEART OF CHRISTMAS: What Jesus Wants for Christmas
God chose the perfect gift for each of us and He didn’t need help from Nordstrom or Sears catalog. The Christmas season busyness can make even good activities be counter productive to what God really wants to accomplish in and through us. It helps to ask God what He wants –to do the one or two things that would showHis love best.
- A CUP OF JOY –Undercurrents of God’s Grace
To be a joyful woman, we need to understand that joy and happiness are not the same. In fact, if you’re not happy, it’s really no big deal! Joy is not a personality trait. It comes from the Perfect Joy-Giver, God Himself.

- REMODELING 101: God’s Redesign for Your Life
Lessons learned from a three-year remodel easily translate into homespun wisdom on how God may want to tear down, rebuild, and redesign our lives for His pleasure and purpose – even it means going down to the studs!
- TURNING OVER A NEW LEAF–Goal Setting for Holy Hearts
God is in the business of fresh starts. He likes the word “new.” and He loves it when we decide it’s time to “turn over a new leaf.” He even knows the leaves that we need turning over the most. And, He’s our biggest cheerleader while we do it.
If I had to name the top three character qualities that describe Sue they are: humility, wisdom and humor. Sue knows her Bible and speaks from a heart that desires to know her God, and share His love with others. Her passion for hospitality, and using whatever the means at hand to open your home to others, has had an effect on our women. There are women stepping out to host an event, or just invite a friend in, no matter the state of their home. Sue is a speaker of integrity, in that whatever the topic she reveals her own struggles and triumphs relating to the subject matter.
I highly recommend Sue as a speaker and look forward to having her back with us in the near future!
