Sue Corl was born with a severe cleft palate, without a nose, upper lip, or palate. During the first 15 years of her life, Sue underwent 26 major operations. As a child, she heard lies about her physical appearance and struggled emotionally with her self-worth. In her late twenties, she began the journey of emotional healing as she opened God’s Word and discovered the truths of who she is: fearfully and wonderfully made and an image bearer of God. Her personal story inspired her to begin Crown of Beauty International to help women around the world to experience the same freedom from lies, shame, and strongholds that God provided for her. Sue is an international women’s conference speaker, author, mentor, and Bible teacher, and served 25 years as a missionary in Asia. Her greatest joy is being a wife and mother of two adult children. She has a passion to see women set free by receiving the love of God and living out their potential in the powerful truth of who they are in Christ.

Have you ever wanted a safe place or a person to share your heart or relational struggle to be heard and get empathetic Jesus centered counsel? This podcast is that space and a friend for you! With 40 years of experience as a missionary and mentor with CRU and over 25 years ministering to women overseas, I bring my coaching, counseling, walk with God, and my own life experiences to talk about many of the difficult questions and struggles we face in life. My greatest joy is helping women to experience a renewed passion in their relationship with Christ. On every episode, I will answer and discuss a question from our listeners with one of our conversation partners or guests. Come weekly to be renewed through friendship, godly counsel, and the truth of God’s Word!


I will provide a one-to-three-day conference called Beauty for Ashes which integrates time for teaching the Word with many opportunities for individual and group prayer, personal reflection, and small groups. I also offer the Crown of Beauty Bible study to help women grow and see victory in their lives.

I am available to teach on other topics related to helping women be better equipped to live a victorious and fruitful life so they can live and serve the Lord in confidence according to their full God-given potential.
