Susan Fiedler was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. Having graduated high school in 1979, she enrolled in a trade school, graduated, worked in an apprenticeship position for a year, and within 4 years opened her own business.
She met her future husband through a mutual friend in high school, and they were married in 1988. Peter and Susan have one son, Michael.
Not growing up in a religious home, Susan came to know the Lord later in her life. One day while listening to a Focus on the Family radio broadcast, Dr. Dobson spoke of asking for the forgiveness of your sins and asking Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior. It was that moment that Susan asked Jesus to be her Lord and Savior.
Peter and Susan wanted to raise their son in a smaller community, with God at the center of their lives. In 1997, God led them to Annandale and to the Annandale Free Church. Susan immediately became involved with all of the various children’s ministries, and has pursued her passion for children and for serving God. Susan feels blessed beyond measure that God has allowed her to serve Him by overseeing His most precious little children! To God be the glory!
