About

Laughter, like music, is a universal language. And Susan Sparks speaks this language like no other.”          –Naomi Judd, Multi-platinum Country Music Artist

Hi y’all, I’m Susan Sparks—a trial lawyer turned preacher, comedian, inspirational speaker, author, award-winning nationally syndicated columnist, and Harley-riding cowboy boot addict.

I know, I know . . . this sounds more like a personality disorder than a career path.

Whatever it is, I love what I do! Why? Because . . .

I help people reclaim their joy.

Here’s my philosophy in a nutshell:

If you can laugh at yourself, you can forgive yourself. And if you can forgive yourself, you can forgive others.

Laughter promotes physical healing, alters our perspectives, defuses conflict, empowers creative thinking, highlights our commonalities, bridges human differences, and generates hope.

That’s why my mission in life is to change the world . . . one smile at a time.

And you can, too!

Sign up for my free weekly eblast “The Shiny Side Up” delivering hope, healing, and humor directly to your inbox.

Laugh AND think while reading a few of my syndicated columns or books.

Follow my inspirational messages through social media, podcasts or LiveStream.

Get inspired by watching one of my sermons or keynotes on this site or consider me for one of your next events!

Most of all JOIN ME! Let’s change the world together . . .

And let’s do it TODAY!

– Susan
