Thank you for stopping by my little slice of the internet! If this is your first visit, thanks for checking things out. If you’re a regular visitor, welcome back. My name is Sue Anderson. I am the author of “Modern Day Noah: Taking A Leap of Faith When It Makes No Earthly Sense.”
There’s nothing special about me. I’m just a regular, everyday person who has had their fair share of life struggles. Just like everyone else has. But, boy oh boy, do I have a dramatic and compelling story to share with you about my life! Modern Day Noah is a book about the almost unbelievable, and supernatural, story of my life. It began with years and years of darkness, confusion and despair; a time period where I thought the entire purpose of life was to simply figure out how best to survive it. Then, the book leads you through my dramatic and exciting journey of finding out the real meaning and purpose of life. And, the role I play in it. It’s a “beat the odds” success story filled with overwhelming joy and optimism. It’s a story of faith that I hope will encourage and inspire you.
On the surface, the book, Modern Day Noah may appear to be all about me. But it is really a story about how God surprisingly and miraculously worked beauty and hope into my life, in spite of the hardships I’ve faced. It is really His story, as it played out through me and my life. My story is filled with broken pieces, terrible choices and ugly truths. It’s also filled with a major comeback, peace in my soul and a grace that saved my life. As the words of Casting Crowns’ song, “Nobody,” says, “I’m just a nobody, trying to tell everybody, all about somebody, who saved my soul. Ever since you rescued me, you gave my heart a song to sing. I’m living for the world to see, nobody but Jesus!”
Modern Day Noah chronicles my journey of taking a gigantic financial leap of faith when it made absolutely no earthly sense. It explains how I finally knew that taking the leap was the right decision. And, it shares all of the great blessings that have followed since doing so. This blog is a continuation of my story after the book ends. (You can sign up to receive each blog post, via email or RSS feed, on the right side bar so that you don’t miss anything.)
This page was originally created in 2013, right after I took the leap. But, it was changed and updated in 2023, after the book was published. Many of the comments below were left when the page was originally created.
What a beautiful beginning to the telling of your story. You have a gift, and I am grateful you are sharing it! I can’t wait to read more, and I LOVE the picture!
Thanks, Judy! I’m glad you love the picture too. I felt like it represented the vast unknown this leap of faith is taking me in so well.
I was excited to read your blog. I understand the dilemma of Modern Day Noah. Many people never have such an experience. I look forward to hearing more of the decision you made (I am making the assumption that you quit your full-time job, after becoming fully vested, to do full time organizing.)
God’s Blessings to you throughout 2014.
Thanks for leaving a comment, Janet! I actually wasn’t fully vested and gave up 3/4 of my pension when I left early. That’s part of the reason that it makes no earthly sense at all! But, I knew with certainty that was what I was supposed to do. Glad you’ll be joining me on this journey.
Hi Sue, thank you for sharing your beautiful story & leap of faith. So encouraging. I can so relate and inspired to step out in faith myself in the area of helping foster parent youth (teens). Not certain what is ahead but am trusting the Lord and praying for His direction.
That’s exciting, Ericka! Just pray, seek and listen. He WILL guide you every little step of the way. The additional blessing you’ll have is when you help others, somehow you end up getting helped/blessed as much or more as the people you’re helping. Those youth/teens need you. Keep me posted on your journey!
I have been feeling that call! I need to hear more! Pls pray I go as God leads? Where to I don’t know but I have some ideas!
