Susan's Critically Acclaimed Books!

"Mom, I'm Gay" - Loving Your LGBTQ Child and Strengthening Your Faith

Susan's classic book!

When your child comes out to you, how you respond may have a lot to do with your faith. Doesn't the Bible say that's wrong? Will we have to leave our church? Worst of all, you may wonder, Do I have to choose between my Christian faith and my child?

Susan Cottrell is a mom who has been there and wants you to know that loving and accepting your gay child does not mean abandoning or even compromising your faith. This is not a book about the politics or morality of homosexuality. This is a book about how to respond with love and support during this vulnerable time for your child. With practical advice and heartfelt encouragement, Cottrell guides readers through the fear and uncertainty Christian parents of LGBTQ children often feel.

The best way to experience this wonderful book is through Audible.

Another great way is through our convenient Kindle edition. If you prefer a paperback, you can find it on Amazon by clicking here.

Radically Included: The Biblical Case for Radical Love & Inclusion

"This small, 64-page book is a powerhouse of truth, love and life!"

Susan's critically acclaimed book: Radically Included: The Biblical Case for Radical Love and Inclusion - 49 Verses that will Change Your Life, Change Your Love, and Set Your Heart Free!

"The conservative, evangelical church believes itself to be fairly inclusive—after all, Jesus is radically inclusive! But as we found out when our daughter came out: too often, it’s not! I doubt this is breaking news, that many nonaffirming Christians marginalize, oppress, and exclude LGBTQI people—and even their families—based on 6 or 7 wrongly interpreted passages of scripture. Homelessness, substance abuse, suicide... the results are tragic. I do a simple, precise standdown of the 7 'clobber passages' and I multiplied 7 times 7 to bring you 49 passages that show inclusion as the core message of the Gospel and the very heart of God. The Bible contains hundreds of passages that require love, justice, mercy, hope, encouragement, and trust in God! This book explores 49 of those passages to get at the heart of the gospel and the heart of how we are to respond both to the Bible and to the call to be Jesus in the world; 49 passages that will change your life, change your love, and set your heart free!" - Susan

Be the Love You Want to See In the World

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

“How do we love each other during 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’Ä“tre. 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!

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
