Susan Deborahs is a young woman full of vibrancy and keenness to inspire and motivate. She stands despite having faced many ordeals, and incorporates those experiences with one of the most fascinating characters in the Bible—the Woman at the well (John 4)—in her latest project, Living Waters.“I wanted to make this character as real to others as she has been to me. I was that woman!” Susan delves to the core of the struggles this woman encountered—abuse, insecurities, suicidal thoughts, and so forth—to reveal how one moment with Jesus Christ was able to not only capture her heart, but transform her entire life.
The book focuses on life before this Woman meets Jesus, and thereafter, revealing the power and impact of encounter, thus compelling her into purpose; which is ultimately an intimacy/relationship with her Saviour. Living Waters represents freedom: the letting go of old and comfortable way of thinking and living, so that one will obtain authentic love, hope and peace, through relationship with God.The foundation of knowing who one is begins with knowing who God is.
As well as expanding this eminent account, Living Waters is equipped with devotionals to challenge, galvanise, and propel women to not simply know God, but to individually identify with whom He has called them to be. “I have always wanted to inspire those who never feel inspired.”Living Waters is the first of many books to be released by this courageous author, as Susan is dedicated to imparting God’s continual work in and through her life with others.
The book will be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, all the online stores.
Release date: 30th July 2014
Listen, it’s time for you to forgive the people in your life that hurt you in the past, let’s put gender aside because some of our issues are with people full stop. It’s time for you to let it go and forgive.
Do you want to be free?Do you want to experience the goodness and love of the father?We need to see God for who He is and only that, we cannot measure Gods love based on experiences we’ve had with human beingsThe only way the woman in this story (John 4) could embrace Christ was through her making the choice to breakaway from her past, she had to let go, she experienced many hurts and pains but she encountered the love of Christ and found it was greater than her past, she knew she had to pursue Him, for her to fully experience freedom. – Excerpt Taken from the ‘Reflections’ Devotional.
In this short film Susan reveals many of the struggles she has faced in her life. From dealing with the loss of her mother, at the age of seven, to battling depression and questioning the existence of God in the midst of her process. She shares how she was able to overcome these ordeals, and how they enabled her to finally discover genuine truth and love.
Susan invites us on the personal journey that inspired her new book ‘Living Waters’ and the ‘Freedom Begins’ movement, and explains how both reinforce the calming truth that we have complete freedom in Christ.

Having a psychology degree provides me with a broad scope to experience many industries and fields of work. Although, my main aim is to continuously learn and also to share my knowledge and experience with others, within and beyond the constraints of the psychology community. Hence my pursuit to teach!
Hopefully, the readers of this blog will find that it is infested with a scope of psychological knowledge, with the intention of conveying psychology in such a way that it is interesting and understandable to those who aren’t studying it as a discipline. In addition, you will find that I heavily cover various topics aside of psychology such as, Christianity because I am a Christian. I draw both passions together, Psychology and Christianity, observing how they complement and sometimes clash! This blog is where ‘Psychology meets Scripture’.
As well as teaching Psychology, I know God has called me to do something far greater in this world. My passion is for His Word and to encourage others to read the Bible, fall in love with it, but most importantly…fall in love with The Author! My role of teaching is not limited to psychology. I strongly believe God is stirring up the ‘teacher’ office of the Five fold ministry in me.
I’m a doctor by virtue, healing and performing heart surgery with words of encouragement.
I am extremely driven and passionate about getting everyone; both Christians and non-Christians to read, understand and live out the word of God. To achieve this, I’ve created online Bible Challenges, whereby people around the world via social media, read a book in the Bible, one chapter a day and share what they have drawn out from the text. I have numerous Bible challenges, all accessible from my blog (www.doctorkanayo.com) and the YouVersion Bible App where over 250,000 people have completed my devotionals around the world. One Bible Challenge at a time, I aim to change the skewed perceptions of the Bible being irrelevant and to show the true reality that the bible is ‘juicy’, tremendously relevant, fun and easy to read. My one prayer is that my teachings and writings from His word, will touch at least ONE person. That would be a serious mission accomplished to the glory of God!
