“This is the book. This is the love we need right now.”

“This has been pouring out of my heart for the last several weeks. How do we love each other during these divisive times? What does love look like? I have spent long days and nights - sometimes waking up at 3:00 am with thoughts I had to get on paper - working on this beautiful little book. It came from someplace deep inside me and it is from my heart to yours - to unleash that magical love that can change us and those around us, and set our hearts free to be the love we want to see in the world.” - Love, Susan

Love is the breath to our life, the beat to our heart, the raison to our d’ētre. Love makes us excited about life, gives us reason to get out of bed. Not just romantic love, though that is certainly part of it. I mean the love of belonging: having people who love you, people who would notice if you were missing and go find you if you didn’t come back.

So what does life-redeeming, meaning-restoring, all-purpose love look like? It looks like beautiful things! In these pages we will deconstruct love — to see what love asks of us and what it offers us — so we can get that yummy goodness into our lives and our world!

Susan Cottrell, acclaimed author of “Mom, I’m Gay”, True Colors, and Radically Included, international speaker recently featured on the TEDx stage, public theologian, and Mom of five children, including two in the LGBTQ community, shares her heart and profound wisdom in this breakthrough book. In Be the Love, Susan shares key insights through relatable, authentic writing to help us be the love we want to see in our families, in our churches, in our communities… to help us be the love we want to see in the world.  

“Susan has this fierce, loving, don’t mess with me, Mom vibe.” — Rev Ashley Harness, Auburn Seminary
