I am Suzanne Gunter McClendon. I am a Christian and have been blessed to have some very strong Christian influences over the course of my life. My grandparents were my rock and shelter over many of life’s storms. They taught me to pray good prayers for the people who hurt me, and not to pray for the hot coals to land on their heads instead, which was more in my nature to do when hurting.

I have been married to David for thirty-one years. He has been my love for thirty-four years. We have four adult children. Our sons are in service, the youngest in the US Marine Corps. and the oldest in the US Navy. Our daughters are both in college. We have several babies waiting for us in Heaven.

I was born in South Carolina and David in Georgia, but we have been living on the Texas Gulf Coast for the last eleven years. Things are sure different out here!

My passion is family history. I also enjoy photography, digital art, fiber crafts such as crocheting and knitting, and am an avid reader. If reading were suddenly banned, I think my entire family would go crazy! I also write poetry and have a book of poetry published on Amazon Kindle. The title is Shattered, by Suzanne G. McClendon.

Several big changes have recently come into our lives. On 26 May 2016, David had the first of three strokes. While it could have been much worse and we are thankful it wasn’t!, we are trying to adjust to this new life post-stroke. He is determined to beat this and get back to 100%. If anybody can do it, he can.

On 12 December 2016, I was diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes. I have been blind in my left eye since very early childhood. My right eye has had to take over. Now, it is in danger of becoming blind, too.

We would appreciate your prayers as we adjust to our new normal. Thank you.

Have a blessed day!
