About Susan

A returning and beloved guest of the Legacy League, Susan is a bestselling Christian author, mom to five, grandmother to 21 and wife to John. The couple lives in Falls Church, Virginia, where John served as a senior pastor for 40 years. Susan has written 16 books, including Risky Faith: Becoming Brave Enough to Trust the God who is Bigger Than Your World and Cousin Camp. Her powerful gift of communication extends beyond book pages and blog posts as she frequently speaks on topics of faith, scripture and family. If it’s up to Susan, you won’t find her in the kitchen or at the mall – she’ll be outside enjoying God’s creation with her golden retriever. Learn more about her at susanalexanderyates.com.

“Our friend Susan has walked with God for decades. … Her encouragement is intensely practical. Her life stories give hope to anyone of any age who desires to know God more deeply.” - Barbara and Dennis Rainey, co-founders of Family Life
