Through diligently applying the principles set out in this magnificent book, the result gives you an indescribable feeling of buoyant inner power and confidence.

By drawing from the great minds of history, as well as a range of literary, spiritual, and contemporary sources, I present the you with nuggets of wisdom to savor, first by opening every chapter with two intriguing quotations, and then by closing each chapter with more thoughtful insights, with an abundance of time-tested guidance in-between.

In other words, the book is full of recommendations that are all created to leave you in a healthier, more vibrant state of mind, body, and spirit. By considering the foods you eat; by being kinder and more compassionate to all you meet; by watching the words you speak and write; by keeping your word with yourself and others; and by assessing your higher consciousness, while simplifying your life, and returning to a connection with nature, you will feel stronger, more relaxed, and eager to take on the challenges in your life. This book is supremely insightful in explaining the subtle wisdom that supports all these life changes and enrichments to bring you to peak living.
Excerpt from the FOREWORD by David Craddock, MA (Oxon)
“Busy lives inevitably create a hectic pace of life. Experiencing beauty, feeling wonder, and breathing in deeply of nature’s blessings, unfortunately, often falls to the bottom of our to-do lists. Susan’s uplifting and inspiring book helps us reconsider our objectives and priorities, our aspirations and ambitions, our goals and dreams, reassess how we use our time, and what we value in order to live a more fully realized life. ‘The secret to creating these transforming changes,’ writes Susan, ‘is that they’re made one step at a time, and in 12-minute practicable segments and 21-day favorable commitments; they build on one another, so that nothing becomes a burden. They become manageable steps to take your life forward, until their cumulative effect manifests major changes of significance.’
“It’s not easy to start a new life-changing program or to give up old habits. Fortunately, UPLIFTED: 12-Minutes to More Joy, Faith, Peace, Kindness & Vitality is a nurturing guide, a book with true heart and with wonderful, enthralling stories from Susan’s life experiences and also work with her clients worldwide. She even included two Humor Time Intermissions with really funny jokes and stories. Before you finish Chapter 1, you will be captivated by this book and won’t want to put it down. Following Susan’s advice reminds us of listening to an old friend reaching across the kitchen table to share both common sense and uncommon wisdom. This book is practical to read and delightfully pleasant to follow. I am keeping a copy on my bedside table to read from before I go to sleep each night. If we commit ourselves to the wise guidance that Susan proffers us on each page of this book, we will find that in a short time we’ll feel stronger, happier, healthier, and more serene, restored, ready to soar, and totally UPLIFTED!”

What People Are Saying about UPLIFTED
I have had the great pleasure of knowing Susan for decades, since she was a young child, barely walking, and I can tell you for certain that she is one of the most positive, humorous, and kind people you could ever meet. I’ve read many of her books and I have to say that this one, UPLIFTED, is now my favorite. In her typical reader-friendly, motivating, and inspiring writing style, Susan tells us how to be more hopeful, positive, and vibrantly healthy even when uncertainty and stress may be our constant daily companions. As a medical doctor, I appreciate her holistic approach to living more healthfully that fosters vitality no matter one’s age, not just physically, but also mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. If you would like some practical, effective ways to feel more uplifted each day; if you desire to be healthier, kinder, or more peaceful; if you want some insightful guidance on how to live a more balanced, successful life; or if you simply want to enrich your experience of living, making your life a great adventure and celebration, then Susan’s empowering UPLIFTED book is just for you!~ Peter W. Brown, MD — Los Altos, CA
Books that I love become more than ink on paper; they become good friends. This powerful and life-transforming book, UPLIFTED is sure to become one of my very best friends forever. Long after books are read, even sitting on the shelf, their vibrations continue to bless, heal, enrich, and nurture me. For decades I have been producing and hosting radio programs, and for 15 years, Susan has been a monthly guest on my radio show, This Week in America. She is the only person I’ve ever invited on my program monthly because she’s that good and my listeners around the world can’t seem to get enough of her joyful, upbeat, and bright personality. Her enthusiasm, experience, and her vast knowledge in the fields of holistic health, nutrition, fitness, human potential, and mental well-being are great gifts to my listeners. Her wit, wisdom, and humor blend in a way to create a truly contagious field of joyous energy. And these same characteristics about Susan’s personality shine through on every page of this wonderful book. She makes you wish you were her next-door neighbor so you could visit with her in person, and go for walks or visit in her home over some tea or fresh juice. Susan has a way of living the principles she speaks and writes about in this book that causes others to follow her way of healthy living. In UPLIFTED, it feels as if an angel of light has been dopped into our midst to bless us, just when the world needs it the most, in ways that will last for a long time. If we all lived as Susan suggests, America and the world could close most of its hospitals and jails and become nations at peace with each other. It’s a beautiful and outstanding guide to living a life that is rooted in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual vitality, no matter one’s age. UPLIFTED is definitely essential reading.~ Ric Bratton — Founder and Host, This Week in America
Every chapter is this book is uplifting to read, the writing style engaging and the message of the book insightful and profound and yet easy to assimilate and understand. It is inspiring to think of all the ways that it is possible to apply the myriad of suggestions that Susan offers to your life right away. She reminds us that it is often the little things, the small revelations, the simple random acts of kindness, that make a great deal of difference in handling life’s struggles, whether disappointment or frustration, sadness or loss or any other struggle. I appreciate the beautiful way that she phrases her thoughts, the uplifting quotations, the illuminating stories, the powerful insights and Bible passages, and the many life-enriching recommendations that will stir you into action and help you regain a sense of balance and perspective to your life. “Everything good and positive that broadens our appreciation and appetite for life”, says Susan, “should be one of our lifetime goals”. The reality of her faith-based lifestyle is truly inspiring, and, in the Workbook, she encourages us to examine our life very carefully so that we can know ourselves better and aspire to a more rewarding and fulfilling life. There are over 100 easy-to-apply ‘Action Steps’ in which we can all participate in only 12 or fewer minutes. Like favorite hymns, her many quotations will become familiar and comfortable, useful, timely, and uplifting. As you find yourself thinking, “Susan has written this just for me” you will feel an extraordinary surge of energy, joy, and peace. UPLIFTED is sure to bring you inspiration and ideas, energy and unlimited possibilities, and motivation that will enrich the quality of your life.~ Olin Idol, ND, CNC, Vice President of Health, Hallelujah Diet
The human body is an amazing machine and requires attention, regular maintenance, and loving care to run as efficiently as possible. This wonderful book teaches us how to both honor our body and keep our mind uplifted and positive. But it’s so much more than what to eat (and not eat), how to exercise for best results, when to reinvigorate the body, and why to live by the golden rule. Susan enlightens us on how to believe in possibilities; be courageous in our daily lives; live in the now; move more toward love; remain calm in the midst of uncertainty; reduce daily stress and anxiety; create joy in the middle of chaos; dream big and achieve goals; become a magnet for blessings and miracles; use affirmations to uplift sadness; foster fulfilling relationships; brighten our day first thing in the morning; and much more. I have had the pleasure of knowing Susan for many years and I can say for certain that she is one of the most joyful, kind, faith-filled, loving, peaceful, and upbeat people I’ve ever met. She definitely walks her talk. Whenever we visit, I always feel uplifted afterwards — the theme of this book. Her message is about the art of living fully and using beauty, grace, and inspiration to illuminate our lives. UPLIFTED shows us how we can nurture ourselves by what we feed our mind, and how we can all live with divine connection and timing as we endure, persevere, prevail, and thrive. Susan’s 12-Minute Action Steps are genius because we can all find this small chunk of time daily to uplift ourselves and others. Because of the healing and health wisdom permeating every page of this glorious book, my life has been greatly enriched. If you want to find warmth, affirmation, encouragement, and optimism, this is the book for you. If you need guidance on joy, love, courage, wholeness, grief, risk, loss, growth, and success, this book will be your godsend. If you simply want to read some of the most inspiring quotation ever to guide you on your physical and spiritual journey, UPLIFTED will be your gift. With courage and confidence, Susan will take you on a delightful physical, mental, and spiritual journey, helping to restore you to serenity, grace, and positivity.~ Myran Thomas, LA Esthetique Wellness

Food for Thought Quotations about Books & Reading
If you cannot read all your books…fondle them—peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances. ~ Winston Churchill
Books are such a great way to spend time with your children, open lines of communication with your children, and just build that strong foundation .~ Victoria Osteen
Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing. ~ Harper Lee
Many people, myself among them, feel better at the mere sight of a book. ~ Jane Smiley
Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home. ~ Anna Quindlen
Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real.~ Nora Ephron
She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live. ~ Annie Dillard
A word after a word after a word is power. ~ Margaret Atwood
Books were my pass to personal freedom. ~ Oprah Winfrey
Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing. ~ Benjamin Franklin
We shouldn’t teach great books; we should teach a love of reading. ~ B. F. Skinner
What I like best is a book that’s at least funny once in a while. What really knocks me out is a book that, when you’re all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn’t happen much, though. ~ J. D. Salinger
The greatest luxury I know is sitting up reading in bed. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

~ Ric Bratton, Host of This Week in America
In this captivating compendium, you’ll read never-before-told-stories on how Susan’s obstacles shaped her life and were actually life-enriching catalysts that supercharged her whole-body healing from health-destroying illnesses and enabled her to come out the other side feeling rich with gratitude for every experience and in charge of her own high-level wellness destiny.
In Wired for High-Level Wellness: Simple Ways to Rejuvenate, Meditate & Prosper,Susan is in a unique position to testify on the efficacy of her basic message that health is the result of the countless choices we make every day. When her back was fractured in a serious automobile accident, her physician told her that she would never be able to carry “anything heavier than a small purse.” Susan chose not to accept this verdict; within months, there was no longer any pain or even evidence of the fracture. Soon, she fully regained her healthy, active lifestyle. She attributes her healing to her natural-foods diet, faith, determination, perseverance, balanced living and, most importantly, to her unshakable relationship with and deep connection to God.
Since the accident, Susan has been constantly active in spreading her faith-based message that anyone can choose to create a healthy, happy, peaceful, and balanced life. Her inspiring message and innovative techniques for achieving total health have won her a grateful and enthusiastic following and have put her in constant demand internationally as a health and fitness consultant and educator.

As the reader, you will feel like you are sitting across from Susan at her kitchen table, visiting over a cup of fresh juice or tea while she shares her most sacred and coveted secrets with you on how to transform your life and live your highest dreams for yourself. Susan tells us in many different ways in the book to always dream big and to let our imaginations soar — visualizing our goals. She shares this famous quote by Albert Einstein: “Imagination is everything. It is the preview to life’s coming attraction.” And she adds, “This reminds me of the Bible scripture, Hebrews 11:1, ‘Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.’ God will seed your imagination with something that is special and just for you. Our mission, if we choose to accept it, is to believe wholeheartedly, imagine our goals as already achieved, assume the feeling of that wish fulfilled, keep the faith, live gratefully, and continue to move onward and upward.”
Susan’s heartfelt personal stories will have you on the edge of your seat; her humor will have you laughing so hard that you will receive a great abdominal workout; and her sound nutritional and holistic lifestyle guidance will have you feeling healthier, happier, and more hopeful before you’ve even finished Chapter 1.

Tactics to Build the Exercise Habit and Enrich & Energize Your Workouts
Modern living has channeled the average person in the USA and the UK into an increasingly sedentary existence. We human beings, however, were designed and built for movement, and our bodies have not adapted well to this reduced level of activity.
Yes, what we put into our bodies with nutrition is of utmost importance, but how we move our bodies is equally as important. If you do exercise regularly, you may have to cope with lack of enthusiasm at one time or another. How can you stay motivated to workout? “Just do it” was one of Nike’s rallying slogans of the late ’90s, but sometimes it can be tough to live up to. Sooner or later, a lack of motivation, boredom or burnout will enter the picture.
Invest in Yourself with Exercise is the perfect book if you want to make transformative changes in your level of fitness, reshape your body, say good-bye to excess fat, make your workouts enjoyable and rewarding and see results quickly. Susan’s well-designed physical fitness program can add years of fulfillment, vibrant health and peace of mind to your life.
“In the pages of this informative and uplifting book, you’ll learn from Susan:
• The importance of exercise for overall high-level wellness • How to get the most from your workouts and stay motivated to exercise • Tips to prevent exercise boredom, burnout and injury • The best exercises to look younger, bolster energy and lose weight • Surefire ways to fight excess fat by mastering your metabolism • Why prayer-walking enhances mental and spiritual health • How to turn dreams into reality—the power of choice and commitment
Plus so much more. As Susan told me often in our training sessions, ‘An investment in yourself and in your health is the best investment you can make.’ This book will inspire, motivate and empower you, too.”
Welcome to the wonderful world of sprouts. These remarkable gifts of nature are pure, fresh, nutrient-rich and alive with their vital force intact. If you’re interested in experiencing healing, optimal health and vitality, then make sprouts — the food for the future — part of your healthy-giving kitchen and lifestyle. Sprouts have been the cornerstone of Susan’s wellness program since she was a teenager and, ever since, she’s been known as “The Sprout Lady.”
Think about it this way: What food can you easily produce and enjoy whether you are 3 years old or 93, vegan or carnivore or are living in an inner-city high-rise or on an isolated island? What food is grown indoors with no soil, is harvested in two to seven days, and is loved by children and adults alike? What can supply your family with fresh vegetables year-round, regardless of the season? What food is edible raw or cooked, and is delicious either eaten all by itself or included in an exciting array of recipes? The answer is SPROUTS.
Excerpt from David Craddock’s Foreword:
“In the pages of the Kitchen Gardening, you will learn how to become competent on everything related to sprouting: how to grow sprouts; why sprouts are so salubrious; which sprouts are most nutrient-rich; ways to incorporate sprouts and microgreens into meals and snacks morning, noon and night; how raw foods revitalize the body from the inside out and so much more. You’ll even learn about the Essene, a community where Jesus and his family were known to live and their secrets to living 120 years… and in robust health, to boot. It’s astonishing to me that in only 2-7 days, we can grow nutrient-rich sprouts in a corner of our kitchen, and for only pennies per batch and a couple minutes of our time daily. No matter one’s weather conditions outside, or location in the world, in any size kitchen, you can find space to grow a garden and become an expert at sprouting within a week or two. In most cases, all you need is one guard-size glass jar. I am proud to call myself a kitchen gardener, thanks to Susan’s wisdom and guidance in this book. This is the most reader-friendly, beautifully designed in full-color and comprehensive book on the ABCs of sprouting ever, and it will be indispensable in your healthy living program, too. It makes a wonderful gift for family and friends and for anyone who wishes to create a healthier, happier and more rewarding life.”

The ABCs of Sprouts & How They Supercharge Vitality — Part 1
Susan extols the virtues of sprouts in this radio interview on This Week in America. As she enthusiastically opines, sprouts are nature’s little miracles. In his poetry collection entitled Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman wrote, “The smallest sprout shows there is really no death.” You start with a small, dry, hard seed. Add air and a little water and watch as new life emerges as if by magic from the dormant seed. Vibrant with life and bursting with energy, its tiny size belies the extraordinary activity that takes place while growing. In mere hours, and at a cost to you of just pennies, its delicate shoot proceeds to provide the most vital food imaginable. After listening to this motivating interview, not only will you want to purchase Susan’s book Kitchen Gardening, but you will be ready to start your adventure into the wonderful world of sprouting. And even if you don’t want to grow sprouts at home, you’ll be inspired to add store-bought sprouts, these gems of nature, into your healthy diet. To listen now, click HERE.
