In 2004, the Lord impressed on my heart to prepare talks for a women’s retreat. I was baffled and responded, “But Lord, no one has asked me to do a retreat.” His response was, “Prepare the talks, and I will provide the people.” I knew in my heart I was to write my life journey with the Lord. The purpose of the message was to help women identify lies they believe about themselves, God, and their relationship with Him while equipping them to recognize spiritual and emotional strongholds to find freedom through prayer and God’s Word. Much of the focus was on running to Jesus, learning to live according to the truth, and have our longings met through Him instead of protective and sinful strategies.

The Lord is raising up women around the world to lead them into truth and freedom. He called me to be one of these women to bind up the broken-hearted (Isaiah 61:1-3). Beauty for Ashes Conferences began that way. Since presenting these conferences, we have experienced and witnessed thousands of women become renewed around the world. To learn more on conferences, visit here

In 2009, the Lord directed me to write a twelve-week Bible study, Crown of Beautyto help women go deeper in their understanding of God’s truths and the way they can walk in the freedom of His love. These discipleship materials have been used by churches, community groups, and one on one in five continents. Through these studies, women have a restored understanding of their identity in Christ, God’s intimate relationship with them, how to be victorious over spiritual battle, and how to walk a life of purpose and power through the Holy Spirit. We have translated this material into several languages. Since then, I have written three devotionals (More Beautiful by the DayFor Such a Time as This, and Broken But Undefeated) and co-authored a twelve-week Bible study on the same topic for men, More than Conquerors.

It has been a privilege to witness this ministry spread internationally to Africa, Asia, Europe, North America, and South America.  Since 2018, our men’s conference and discipleship ministry, More than Conquerors, is also expanding. We are excited to see how God will grow our ministry through social media platforms, our Podcast, His Heartbeat with Sue Corl, online conferences, and discipleship training courses. God is raising up women and men around the U.S. and the world to teach our conference materials, disciple others, and equip individuals and teams to go on mission trips to develop our international ministry further.

Many of those we reach live in impoverished countries with little financial means which prevents them from attending the conference. It’s only through the generous giving of our supporters that these women are able to attend our conferences to enjoy times of worship, teaching, fellowship with other women and receive prayer.
