About Me

Hi, my name is Susan Sanders, and I am so happy you stopped by to visit.

Let me share a little about me. I love to encourage women of all ages in every walk of life to love God and to love the Word of God. We all need a voice pointing us in the right direction and cheering us on, and I want to be that kind of support to you.


I have taught Bible Studies and helped lead Women’s Ministry at Sherwood Baptist Church for over 25 years, and I am a chaplain for several businesses in my area. I occasionally speak for Christian retreats, workshops, and events.  


I have written daily devotions for teachers in public and private schools and want to continue to write content that draws people to a close relationship with Christ.


Having a family of my own, I understand the unique struggles of balancing all of the spinning plates of life - cooking meals, teaching studies, working as a chaplain, hosting events, AND being in the Word of God consistently. I have found balance, not when I have more free time on my hands but when I rest in His plan, not mine.


Why "Always Dawn"

"Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning." Psalm 30:5

I chose this name for several reasons, one being my middle name is Dawn. My mother said God gave her that name for me right before I was born. Although she has moved on to heaven, to her I will always be Dawn. 


Always Dawn - there is just something about the dawning light that is full of hope. After a long night of weeping or suffering, we are met with a fresh, new light holding the promise that today will be a brighter day.  


In Christ, there is always a dawn awaiting us - a dawn of a new day in heaven when all our tears will be wiped away, yes. However, we can also be encouraged in this life that the Lord has a new day on the horizon just ahead of us. The sun will shine again in our lives.  The heaviness will lift. Our weeping will be turned to dancing.  We will see light where there was utter darkness. 


Decades ago I read the scripture from Isaiah 60:1-2. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the light of God shines upon you, and His glory appears over you. Nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.” (emphasis mine)


The Word of God is that dawning light cutting through the dark. The Word of God reveals. It brings clarity and direction when we have none. And when we share it, truth dawns in another person’s heart. Life is too short to sit in darkness. “But the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.” Proverbs 4:18


My prayer is the encouragement shared here will be a light in the dark. We all need a sunrise in our circumstances.  We all need Jesus. If we have suffered long and are weary, we can be hopeful. After the darkest of nights, there is always dawn.
