For the past twelve years Susan Valles has been using her gifts to lead others into the presence of God through worship. Touched by this presence in a profound way at the age of ten, Susan developed a deep hunger to help others experience the love of God and the majesty of His presence. Writing, singing, playing the guitar and songwriting became extensions of this hunger, an outlet for the passion Holy Spirit was stirring inside her to bring the lost and hurting into the healing embrace of the loving Father.
“For God speaks again and again, though people do not recognize it. He speaks in dreams, in visions of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they lie on their beds.” Job 33:14-15
This has been Susan’s experience. Abba Father speaks to her in dreams and visions, giving her inspiration for creativity. Many of her songs have been written in this way, and this is how the idea for her latest project, Zimrah, Dream Singer began. This novel is a culmination of Susan’s personal experience in her relationship with God. The songs that He inspires her to write are filled with scripture and laid the foundation for her own freedom. Similarly, these same songs are sung by the main character Zimrah, and through her journey, many readers are experiencing the same victory!
Zimrah Dream Singer was the next step in a faith walk that began with her first album Small Beginnings, and continued with On My Way. She is currently writing the second book of the Zimrah trilogy and continues to invite the presence of the Lord through song and worship. Through all of this, she is learning to simply trust and follow the Lord’s leading. This has brought her great joy.
Susan’s prayer is that many more will understand the true intimacy that comes with worship of the Living God. Her desire is that through these books and songs, many will come to know the wonderful benefits of knowing God.
For, as our beautiful Savior Jesus says, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].” John 10:10 AMP
