“This book is an invaluable asset to help anyone with asthma to take back their life.” – Dr. Natalie A. Nevins, /CEO, AD+World Health Corp.

“This important book elegantly records for us the effect of asthma on the patient and family. I highly recommend this book for patients, parents, and professionals.” – Chris Landon MD FAAP, FCCP, CMD, Director of Pediatrics Ventura County Medical Center; Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Southern California School of Medicine; Department of Pediatric Pulmonology, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

“Essential reading… Heartrending, thrilling, and richly informative, Sue Fries’ journey to save her son from asthma will inspire you to be more heroic in your own life.” – J. Rentilly, MensHealth.com

“As a mother who has raised an asthmatic child, as well as someone who has lost a loved one to respiratory distress, I know firsthand the sheer terror of what most take for granted: God’s gift of breath. In Learning to Breathe, Susan Fries singlehandedly confronts the battle against poor indoor air quality. In her quest to save her own son, she acquires a life-long mission: a better way to live, a better way to breathe. Quite simply, Ms. Fries life story is inspirational.” – Kim Gosselin, author, The ABCs of Asthma

“Learning to Breathe is a heart-felt and thought-provoking journey of a family’s quest for answers to a son’s asthmatic condition. The author’s search and eventual discoveries provide us with a compass for navigating through the morass of medical jargon about this nearly-epidemic condition.” – Dr. Case Adams, author of Asthma Solved Naturally: The Surprising Underlying Causes and Hundreds of Natural Strategies to Beat Asthma

Posted on 18 April 2015 (0)

Sue shares about our need to grow up in our relationships.  Like a garden, if you don’t nurture relationships, with your friends, family, or significant others, they can easily wither away.  In the same regard, if you don’t prune or weed out those unhealthy relationships in your life, they may do as weeds do to plants, prevent you from growing towards your purpose and passion in life.
Sue shares how you can “plant seeds” to grow those important relationships and your life more richly!

This job led her to an opportunity with the Los Angeles County Office of Education, which helped to further her passion for helping people in need who are receiving public assistance.

Diane is an award-winning speaker who serves in various capacities in community organizations and ministries.  Her experience of 25 years in these areas include writing and editing for various publications and devotions, writing and teaching Bible studies for women and teens, and Biblical lay counseling.  One of her stories is featured in Families Can Bounce Back, a book compiled by Diana L. James.  Diane developed and teaches a powerful four-week Bible Study, “Hope: Looking Up When You’re Feeling Down”.

Sue Fries Show – Where Is Your Rest? – 3/7/15

Posted on 07 March 2015 (0)

Sue and her engineer and producer, Roland Wiley, talk about how to find rest when your strength is gone.  Remember when you’ve been “burned out” from doing so much in your week or longer, and all you would like is for someone to step in so you can rest and recharge?

That would be ideal, but for some of us that doesn’t happen, and we feel trapped, depressed, and alone.  Where is our help, when it seems as if no one is there to save us? Even King David from the Bible, cried out to the Lord saying, “Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest! I would fly far away to the quiet of the wilderness.”

Sue and Roland share their experiences and what they have learned along the journey in finding rest from our hectic and often challenging lives.
