Suzetta Perkins had the heart of a writer at a very young age. As a dreamer, writing was one of the avenues that allowed her to dream big and take her imagination beyond the boundaries of the four walls of her bedroom. She wrote many short stories, and in high school, she became the co-editor of her school's yearbook. Today, Suzetta has traveled many miles since her early days. She has been to more than twenty countries and has lived and/or visited just as many states in the U.S. She plans to write stories whose backdrops come from the experiences she's been fortunate enough to visit. To have traveled and experienced the world as she has is a story in itself. The mother of two grown children and one granddaughter, Suzetta finally realized her dream of writing a full-length novel. In 2000, she penned her first novel, Behind the Veil, a mainstream suspense novel that looks into the life a man whose greed and deceit nearly costs him his family, livelihood, and his life. Suzetta Perkins is also the author of A Love So Deep, Ex-Terminator: Life after Marriage, Déjà vu, Nobody Stays the Same, and At the End of the Day. She is also the cofounder and president of the Sistahs Book Club.

In her book Heaven Hears, Pat Boone’s daughter Lindy describes what it was like growing up in the limelight of Beverly Hills. She will share some of that story today, but we will also talk about her son’s plunge through a forty-foot high skylight. Barely hanging onto life, he lost thirty-six pints of blood during the next several hours while thousands of Christians from all over the world rallied in prayer.
How did she get through it? “In the first two years following Ryan’s accident I struggled with fatigue, conflict, and depression,” says Boone. Day by day she learned to trust God and adapt to new circumstances. Lindy’s transparency will delight and encourage you. Tune in to learn how Ryan is doing today.
