Suellen Roberts: Founder and President CWIM
Suellen Roberts shared Wendie Pett’s photo that says, “You need to associate with people that inspire you, people that challenge you to rise higher, people that make you better." Don’t waste your valuable time with people that are not adding to your growth. Your destiny is too important.
This quote truly reflects the heart of another powerful women with spirit, Suellen Roberts, Founder and President of Christian Women in Media. The Hollywood region of Christian Women in Media was blessed to have Suellen, our keynote speaker, share her story of her meteoric rise in her career in the famous House of Gucci. In addition she shared how she stepped into the television arena with no experience and how God transformed her life. Now a seasoned professional with almost two decades of experience in the field of communications, she has a background as television producer with three nationally syndicated shows.
In 2002 Suellen became the Founder and President of Christian Women in Media and continues to devote her time and energy into expanding the territory. Although we are presently in five key regions in the country, Suellen is working with several key leaders to open up the doors internationally. Suellen leads by prayer. In her talk she directed us to an article that says, “Desperate for More Time,“ Trying to do to many things is burning us out and making us sick”. We need Time Out. T – trust Him, I-initiate conversation, M – meditate on His Word, E – experience His power , O – open up to God, U- utilize what He gives you, and T -thank Him for what He is.
