Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer!
I have known Ron and Sue Sauer since 2003, and during that time, I have witnessed the love of the Lord shining through both of them, Sister Sue who is gifted in many areas; she had a deep love and respect for the Lord and a passion for helping others.
Sue is very wise concerning matters of life and godliness and is excellent at giving wise counsel. She has been sharing Christ’s love with the young women at Moody Bible Institute, where her hubby Ron is a professor.
Sue is an excellent wife to her husband, Dr. and Pastor Ron Sauer, and also an excellent caregiver to Sue’s mother, who lived happily with them 40 months until she suddenly went Home to Heaven in 2016.
After Sue’s mother passed away, Sue has taken a course to be a Nurse’s Assistant so she can help others like she helped her mother. ~ Bill Greguska
Try And See That This Really Works!
One of the best ways to find encouragement for yourself when you are frustrated or down is to try to encourage someone else. It may sound strange, but go ahead and try it, you will see for yourself that it works!
That is how this website started back in 2007 with help from Pastor Ron Sauer and his wife, Sue Sauer. (doing something to encourage someone else is a blessing to them and indirectly yourself). ~ Bill Greguska
God helps peoples if they are willing to be helped, and He can change your life too!
God Has Blessed Sue Sauer!
Sister Sue Sauer is an excellent cook and homemaker, not to mention an outstanding piano teacher, although the most significant thing about her is her love for Jesus Christ and helping others who are in need.
Sue has been gifted with the ability to listen and form substantial biblical responses to those in which she counsels. They tried diligently to keep my marriage together as they advised my ex-wife at the time for many many months in person and also on the phone and via emails.
Without any hesitation, Ron and Sue Sauer reflect what it means to be Christians using their giftedness for the good of individuals at church, Moody, and whoever the Lord puts in their life.

Ron and Sue Sauer And Their Walk With The Lord!
Sue Sauer ~ Fruit Of The Spirit
Sue’s husband, Ron Sauer, refers to her as Sweet Sue! If you knew Sue, you would understand why. She loves the Lord with all her heart and has committed her life to live for God. She has counseled others such as the women at Moody Bible Institute, which she has done faithfully for many years now.
The young ladies come to her on a sign-up sheet and share their concerns with Sue to get some perspective from a woman who has some “mileage” in following Jesus Christ for their answers. She helped me in my life years ago when I was struggling very badly with my marriage, and even to this day,
Sue has gone far beyond what most people would consider enough help, and her efforts were not wasted. One of many things Sister Sue taught me was to have an open palm with both people and things. She said that this way, if God does take an individual or something out of my life for His reasons, that it will not hurt so badly compared to if I was holding on so very tightly.
Ron and Sue Sauer are a strong team who work together very well. Ron has been an Interim pastor for almost 30 years while also being a professor at Moody Bible Institute. Sue behind the scenes has been a big help for Ron in general and with his congregations that he Pastored at. They have been like a one-two punch to lead the churches he has been assigned to by God.
Counseling A Multitude Of Hurting People
Sue Sauer ~ By Faith Moses Forsook Egypt
Both Pastor Ron and Sue have helped me personally to help me grow closer to the Lord ever since 2005. They have spent many hours upon hours trying to reconcile my struggling marriage with my wife, and then after my wife decided to end the marriage, Sue helped me to get back on my feet during and after my depression. I can remember I used to ask them both what I can do to repay them for all their help; finally, one day I can remember that Sue told me to repay them, that I should encourage others with the love that I have received from Christ.
Ron And Sue Have Been An Inspiration
Sue Sauer ~ No Greater Joy!
That is what was the inspiration to start a 24-hour phone helpline with pre-recorded messages, and then in 2007 I beganneedencouragement.com because of all the encouragement that Ron and Sue gave me, so I could share some encouragement with others as they suggested.
Pastor Ron and Sue Sauer reached out to their family!
Ron and Sue Sauer also has taken time out of their lives to caring for the needs of her 93-year-old mother. They also have two grown boys, Joe and Jeff, who have also become men that love the Lord. She lives her life to please the Lord; you can see the way she lives.
Sue has also taught piano lessons for many years and is magnificent in the kitchen as a health food type of cook. She grew up as a military kid and was very proud of her daddy. I have been blessed to call Sue, my friend, ever since 2005.
Sue Sauer Talks About What To Considering Before Dating
Be Anxious For Nothing
- Like in fishing, circle the worm on the hook for some time before I take a bite off the hook. (AMEN!! Don’t let yourself get emotionally involved with looks or words, but present all those things to the Lord for HIS evaluation first! Realize that your heart is in His hands, and don’t take your heart out of His hands.
- Do not fall madly in love because you will get hurt. (PRECISELY!! The word “MADLY” is just what I talked about in #1)
- Practice Open Palm a little more seriously (holding everyone and everything to God not grasping onto it. (ABSOLUTELY!! But not just ‘a little’! Don’t let fear have anything to do with it unless it is the proper fear of God.)
- Do not let the conversation go to marriage within the first 3 to 6 months? (AMEN!!! Six months is vastly better than 3, and a year is better than six months unless THE LORD makes it VERY VERY understandable with many “signs and wonders” and advice. Become a keen observer of this person in many circumstances. You will know.)
- Don’t trust a man/woman with my heart until I KNOW I can trust him/her. (This KNOWING happens little by little, NOT all at once, unless you want weeds which are “here today and GONE tomorrow.” It takes a while to grow a tree with deep roots. Observe for where this potential mate is rooted and how deeply. Keep learning how to guard your heart and wait on the Lord who strengthens your heart.”)
- Keep my eyes open for red flags. (“Wide open,” please! And thank the Lord that He reveals them. If your heart is in His calm control, you can more clearly see and discuss these flags with Him and even with her to help her analyze and pray about where these are coming from and how to deal with them. Remember, the older a girl or guy gets [unless they are getting closer to the Lord, being changed by Him], they are getting more hardwired to STAY like they have been, less open at all to change which is necessary for a marriage!! Mother says, ” Just like the fan over your head! It has to be controlled by the button that will determine how fast or slow it goes.”)
- Do not let a man/woman get on the same or near the same level as God is in your life. (triple amen!!! Mother looks at Daddy’s picture every night and says, “Goodnight, my dear Austin. You will always be just under the first love of my life!” Austin & Virginia had almost 66 years of marriage.)
- Don’t assume a man/woman is wonderful. Be aware that the Lord is at hand and can point out what this person is like if you are listening. Let them show you.
- Guard my heart because it’s the Wellspring of my life. (This is well worth your deep meditation on what does this verse mean: take each word and meditate – let it become part of the bedrock of your thoughts!)
- I may want a (man/woman) <special spouse to share life with,> but I don’t need a woman to have a full life. Allowing your thoughts to race ahead makes you vulnerable to trashing all your logical thoughts in the numbers we just covered! Prepare your heart! Make these more than a backpack you can throw off when your emotions take over! Chew them and digest them, so they become nourishment for your very BE-ing —> the part of who you are by the Grace of God! Then you will be ready and able to enjoy a relationship with an eternal sister/brother for however long God wants you to walk alongside him/her. The time will benefit you both.)
A skilled person can hide the real self for SIX years!! A critical request to make to God Who knows what’s in all hearts is, “Please reveal enough information about each of us to the other so we can assess whether we’ll be good for each other in the long run.”
The Big Picture About Life And Dating:
Puppy love merely is a beginner’s love; there is no foundation for it; it just springs up in the heart of the one who has it. It assumes a lot!
Puppy love is overwhelmed with an impression. Be impressed but cautiously wait, realizing that anyone can look and sound good for a year!
It’s after a year that cracks may be seen. A skilled person can hide the real self for SIX years!!
That’s why we must have discerning love. Intelligent love is mature love, which has learned to wait and give the necessary time for God to reveal what is essential to know about their character and how they handled the wounds and disappointments of life, arguments, grudges, likes, and dislikes, habits, etc.
Puppy love feels nice for a while, but it does no one any favors! It sets you up for some big disappointments, and it cannot last. That’s why I called it “weeds which spring up today and tomorrow it’s gone” (today means a short time like a month or so).
I think that about sums things up.
