Susan Rutledge, a graduate of Oklahoma State University, spent over thirty years in Christian ministry, focused mainly on children and families. In 2011, Susan retired in order to have more time for writing — and to publish many of the resources she created over the years. These include everything from children’s books and curriculum to parenting helps.
In addition to having led a large children’s ministry for 18 years in Dallas, Susan has staff experience in church programming, family and small group ministries, curriculum development, leadership training, music ministry, church networking and public relations. She is a writer, a teacher, a public speaker and an inspirational “teacher of teachers” committed to sharing her years of ministry knowledge with the next generation of children’s leaders. Susan was the 2000 recipient of International Network of Children’s Ministries’ “Ministry of Excellence” award. She has spoken at leadership training seminars and conferences across the country.
Susan counts her family as her greatest accomplishment. She and Grant, high school sweethearts from Ponca City, Oklahoma, have been married 43 years. They now reside in Prosper, Texas, a northern suburb of Dallas. They have four married children and eleven grandchildren.
