A little something

Susan and Chris Wachtel

I’m 55 and though I’m not what I should be, praise God I’m not what I used to be. I spent many years angry at God, running from Him and tried to deny His existence. Through the loving witness of my neighbors the Bocks, I saw a clear picture of God who loves me. At 32, I recognized I was a sinner, repented of my sins and received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I know that God still answers prayers. For many years I prayed for a husband and on the eve of my 49th birthday, God brought Chris Wachtel into my life and 7 months later we were married. I am conservative in my politics, but a former liberal. I even campaigned for Jimmy Carter and I rue that day. I find liberal leftist thinking, while well intentioned, ultimately flawed. I’ve been abundantly blessed by God with gifted pastors and teachers. I’m most grateful for Pastors Philip De Courcy and Chuck Obremski who faithfully taught the Word of God. I’ve also grown through BSF and CBS Bible Studies. God has recently moved us 1,500 miles from CA to TX. Not sure what the Lord will be doing in us and through us, but I am grateful to be walking with and depending on Him each day.

  1. Hello Pastor Brown,

    So good of you to stop by and leave message. I took a look at your website and I appreciate how you hand the Word of God carefully and go verse by verse in your exposition of Scripture.

    I would be willing to review a Bible Study book. Just so you know my schedule, I’m currently reading two books and hope to have the reviews posted within the next week or two.

    Thank you for reaching out to me and presenting the opportunity. I appreciate it.

    Lord blessings to you in Christ…Susan Wachtel

  2. Hi Susan,

    After reading your review of “First Timothy” by Pastor Greg on Amazon, I decided to contact you. I am wondering if you’d be interested in reviewing one or two of my most recent picture books for children. “Marie and Mr. Bee” is the story of a happy little girl who lives in a cabin in the woods, working and playing with her forest friends . . . until a not-so-busy bee entices her to neglect her work! A lesson learned, forgiveness, and compassion follow, with Marie reading to Mr. Bee from the Book of Proverbs and the Book of John on the last page. Some readers appreciate the fact that Marie uses a wheelchair; this is clear from the pictures, but not mentioned directly in the story.

    “Little Bunny’s Own Storybook” is the tale of a library-loving rabbit who takes matters into his own hands when the library closes for inventory.

    Perhaps you’d like to take a look at my Amazon Author Page and/or my website, grandmasbookshelf.net, and let me know if you’d like to check out free pdfs of these books.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Margaret,

      Thank you for the offer to read your book for review. I would be happy to read it. I need to let you know, I’m reading a couple of other books right now, so it may be a little while until I’m able to post a review. If that’s okay, let me know. I wish you well with your book. I looked at your website and can see you have a love for children. I bet you are a wonderful grandmother and storyteller.

      Blessings to you in Christ…Susan

    • Hi Margaret, thank you for sending your books “Marie and Mr. Bee” and “Little Bunny’s Own Storybook.” I look forward to reading them. I think it will be a welcome break from some of the other books I read. I will let you know when I’ve finished and posted reviews.

      Lord’s blessing to you in Christ…Susan
