3 Questions Wednesday ~ Susan Neal

Good morning, dear reader. Welcome to another 3QW. Today, we have Susan Neal with us. Susan’s desire is to improve the health of the body of Christ. She is a Certified Health and Wellness Coach with the American Association of Christian Counselors. She published three books, Scripture Yoga a #1 Amazon best-selling yoga book, Yoga for Beginners which ranked #3, and 7 Steps to Get Off Sugar and Carbohydrates.

Welcome, Susan! Can you describe yourself in three words?

Susan: Happy health-nut. I live a vital, happy life free from disease, low energy, and brain fog because I pay attention to what I eat. My mission is to improve the health of the body of Christ because over half of Americans live with a chronic illness and a third suffer from obesity.

Helping people is always a positive. Great answer. Now . . .

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

 Susan: I would travel to the Galapagos Islands to disprove Darwin’s theory of evolution.

Wow. That’s quite a mission.  Last question . . .

What’s your favorite movie?

Susan: My favorite movies are the Star Wars movies. I even wrote, but never published, a Bible study about the good and evil that can be seen within each of these movies. This week I saw the Han Solo Star Wars movie. It was so sad how a significant person in Han’s life chose the Darkside over him.

Over half of Americans live with a chronic illness, primarily due to the over consumption of sugar and refined carbohydrates. Seven Steps to Get Off Sugar and Carbohydrates provides a day-by-day plan to wean your body off of these addictive products and regain your health. These changes in your eating habits will start your lifestyle journey to the abundant life Jesus wants you to experience. Not a life filled with disease and poor health. 

You will learn:
•how to eliminate brain fog, cure diseases, and lose weight

•foods that damage versus foods that are beneficial—the ones God gave us to eat, not the food industry 
•healthy food alternatives and menu planning
•the science behind food addiction, Candida, and emotional reasons we overeat 
•to identify food triggers and use God’s Word to fight impulsive eating 
•resources—educational videos and books, meal planning, support organizations, recipes 

Jesus said in John 10:10, “The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give life in all its fullness” (TLB). Are you living life in its fullness? Is your health or weight impeding you from embracing a healthy, bountiful life? Take these simple seven steps and regain the life you were created for. You will love the new you!


Susan’s desire is to improve the health of the body of Christ. She has her RN and MBA degrees, as well as a master’s in health science. She is a Certified Health and Wellness Coach with the American Association of Christian Counselors.

3 Questions Wednesday with Jennifer Slattery

Good morning! It is a great pleasure to welcome back my friend, Jennifer Slattery, to Inspired Prompt. Jennifer has a passion for helping women discover, embrace, and live out who they are in Christ. She does this through speaking, blogging, and writing novels. I’m eager to learn even more about Jennifer. How about you?

Good morning, Jennifer.

Can you describe yourself in three words?

Jennifer: This is hard–largely because I’m not sure I can do anything in three words. ha! I had to ask my husband. He said energetic, talkative, communicator.

I totally agree. I’d add in loyal friend. But that’s two words. 🙂 Next Question:

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

Jennifer: Hmm … I think one of the beach towns in northern Washington, like LaConner or Cooperville, because I love the west coast and small, unique towns pregnant with history.

Washington is a beautiful state. Now…

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

Jennifer: “Never Once” by Matt Redman. God’s never, not once, has God forsaken me. 🙂

A great choice. Here’s a sample…

 Dancing in the Rain

On the verge of college graduation, Loni Parker seeks employment as a music teacher, but no one will hire her since she’s blind. Or so she thinks. To take her mind off her troubles, her roommate invites her to spring retreat at Camp Hope in the gorgeous North Carolina mountains.

Unbeknownst to Loni, Michael Ackerman, the director, is an ex-con responsible for the accident that caused her blindness. When Loni warms up to camp and wants to return as a summer counselor, Michael opposes the idea, which only makes Loni want to prove herself all the more. Though she doesn’t expect to fall for the guy. Still, her need for independence and dream of teaching win out, taking her far away from her beloved Camp Hope . . . and a certain director.

Camp director Michael Ackerman recognizes Lonie instantly and wants to avoid her at all costs. Yet, despite the guilt pushing him from her, a growing attraction draws him to the determined woman. She sees more with her heart than the average person does with his eyes. But her presence also dredges up a long-buried anger toward his alcoholic father that he’d just as soon keep hidden. When circumstances spin out of control, Michael is forced to face a past that may destroy his present.

3 Questions Wednesday with Deborah Dee Harper

Deborah Dee Harper now writes from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, after living in Alaska for a year where she chased bears and moose and generally made a pest of herself. She writes inspirational, humorous books for both children and adults, and when she’s not writing or visiting grandchildren, she enjoys herb gardening, photography, and very, very amateurish astronomy.

Welcome back to 3 Questions Wednesday, Deborah!

First question—Can you describe yourself in three words?

Forgiven, funny, maternal

Forgiven because I’m a Christ-follower, funny because I write humor and try to see the lighter side of life, and maternal because I thrive as a mother and grandmother. I’m not married now, so my focus for the past several years has been to provide the best care and devotion I’m capable of toward my children, their spouses, and their children. Part of that focus is presenting a Christ-like model, and humor is my way of enduring life’s difficult times.

Those are great words that go together well. Next question—

Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?

I’d go to Israel. I’ve long wanted to visit the land of Christ’s birth, ministry, death, and resurrection. I can’t imagine all the ways a trip there would change my life, but at the very least, visiting the places I’ve only read about in the Bible and other supporting books and articles certainly would give me a new perspective. Learning through books those places He visited, the roads He took to move around the country, and the vistas He saw is one thing. Seeing them for myself would bring them to life vividly. I know people who have made the trip and their reports are all the same. It’s life-changing, awesome, and moves your heart, mind, and soul in ways nothing else can.

What a wonderful choice! It would be life-changing. And speaking of life, here’s the last question—

If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?

I believe “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)” would sum up my life very well. I’m still a sinner and no doubt will be one until I take my last breath. Knowing my sins have been (and always will be) forgiven is something I cling to daily.

I love that, Deborah. Readers, Deborah Dee Harper has some exciting news!

I have two books coming out this summer! Misjudge is the third book in my Road’s End series, and Laramie on the Lam is my children’s adventure series coming out in six different books, one per week. To date, four of the books are available.

If you’d like a chance to win a copy of my coming release, Misjudge, or one of my Laramie books (winner’s choice!), leave me a comment to enter.

Here’s more about the books:


Misjudge is the third book in my Road’s End series, and Laramie on the Lam is my children’s adventure series coming out in six different books, one per week. To date, four of the books are available.

In Misjudge, the POTUS returns to Road’s End, Virginia, for an international peace conference, despite Road’s End being the most cantankerous place in the free world. Love is in the air, Emma River comes face-to-face with her history, and the citizens reveal unusual things about themselves. It will be published this summer. I hope readers will take away the message that we all, no matter our age, have valuable contributions to make to society.

In Laramie on the Lam, 11-year-old Laramie Wyoming finds himself in hot water when he holds open the door for some men not realizing they’re robbing the bank. When one of the men stashes $30,000 in Laramie’s backpack, his life changes forever. He and his family and his worst enemy (and now foster brother) travel across the United States in a motorhome so his mother can gather information for her travel books, and the bank robbers chase them every inch of the way. They visit interesting locations, encounter wildlife, lots of adventure, humor, and some mysterious help along the way. Book #1 is pictured and they can all be found here: https://tinyurl.com/y6vh3szc

Laramie on the Lam teaches youngsters

  • The importance and value of depending on their parents, and the joys of visiting interesting, historic, and scenic places around our country
  • How to get along with others—even if that other kid is your worst enemy
  • The comfort of knowing God is always watching over them

Readers, Ada is offering an e-book of What Prayer Can Do to one person who leaves a comment!


What Prayer Can Do: A Collection of Articles

Does God still heal bodies, work miracles, and answer prayer?

Ada Nicholson Brownell’s latest book, What Prayer Can Do contains amazing testimonies of how God intervened in people’s lives when they prayed. Read about a blind man instantly healed, even after he learned Braille. A child with hydrocephalus healed after prayer.  A forest fire turned away. Sinful rebellious people changed in a moment. Marriages saved, and many other miracles.

Fifty-five chapters and wonderful testimonies written by Ada Brownell about What Prayer Can Do originally published in The Pentecostal Evangel.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A DESIRED MIRACLE DOESN’T COME? The book begins with an introduction from the author, “Why I Still Believe God Heals,” that explains why she knows God still does miracles even though she lost a daughter to cancer. The article was first published in the online version of Enrichment Journal, a magazine published by the Assemblies of God for Spirit-filled ministers.
