About Me



Sue Muraida, contributing author of best-selling Deserts to Mountaintops: Our Collective Journey to (re)Claiming Our Voice, is a compassionate, powerful voice calling out to people who, like her, have hidden their true selves due to childhood abuse and societal and relational pressures to be silent and submissive. She is getting better at making the daily choice to claim her authentic voice and use it with a growing love for herself and others. And she is committed to helping others do the same through inspiring, equipping, and encouraging them to tell their stories. Sue is a single mom of seven kids and grandma to ten grandkids, still driving three days a week to soccer practice. She is a writer, speaker, and pursuer of abundant life, living in Grand Junction, Colorado, where she is on a mission to hike every trail and climb every fourteener on the Western Slope.
