At the same time the self-protective layers around her own heart peel back painfully, exposing her inner brokenness.

Interview with Susan:. Tell us about some of the joys of your life?
Teaching music and drama to international students is fun and keeps me in a perpetual state of learning. I also get to lead worship from time to time in churches here in China. Maybe someday I can tell about that. Much of Scandalon came from your journal writing through the years?
Yes; when I was experiencing the scandals I tell about in Scandalon , I kept journals that were for my eyes only. The idea of sharing these stories was inconceivable. Then a friend from the UK convinced me to begin a blog. As time went by, I got to know my readers.
Little by little, I began to open up the pages of my journals to them, interspersed with a few of the details of daily life in Asia. To my surprise, my online friends began commenting and sending me private letters filled with their own pain. I wanted to let them know that there really is healing and light ahead, that the promise from God really is authentic: He is a God who heals. What do you like best about living in China?
