    This review was written for When The Heart Waits.
    I've been a fan of Sue's since the late 1970's when she wrote for Guideposts magazine. I first read this book in 1991 while in the process of being "re-made" from the ground up after losing my husband, job and home in the span of 6 weeks. Day by day it helped me find the courage and strength to put one foot in front of the other.

    Now I am reading it again as part of my course in becoming a Spiritual Director. The truth contained in these pages has only grown richer with the experience of the last 20-some years, and I am purchasing copies to give to my past and present leadership team for women's ministries. Ms Kidd is a rare gift.

    This review was written for When The Heart Waits.
    I read this book 3 years ago with my Daughters of the King group, and we all loved it so much. I felt as if Sue and I were twins at times! She really grasped so overwhelmingly what it is like to feel directionless and stuck in the Le Brea tar pits of life, and of learning to wait until that time of inner formation is finished, and not jumping off the cliff until you know what is down there - a net or a pile of rocks. I loved every word of that book and am trying to get our new group here in TX to read it this next year as our growth project.
