Thank you for stopping by. I am chronically hopeful these days, after battling and being disabled by what we discovered was late-stage neurological Lyme disease in April 2017.

After a long, unbelievably-trying season, a resurrection is underway—and an understanding that each day and each moment matters. While I continue to treat throughout summer 2019, it feels like I am turning important corners and preparing for my “next” in life. The mornings include lots of juicing, exercise, prayer and meditation, and treatments. The afternoons include getting outdoors and seeking to double my joy wherever I can.

My engagement has been understandably limited during this time, and my husband and I are in the process of reimagining our lives.

This fall, I plan to pursue new opportunities we are currently discerning. If you would like to contact me to write or speak on chronic hope in the midst of suffering, the value of girls and women in this world, or the necessity of looking at what has been given, don’t hesitate to use my contact page.

With hope & peace,
Suzanne Burden
