Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page

Every week, I'll be reading the work of my brilliant author pals over Facebook Live WITH CHICO ON MY SHOULDER.  He's a red-headed Amazon parrot and has strong opinions.

The Actors Fund was there for me when I needed a
grant one year ago, enabling me to purchase all of the equipment to
support my on-camera and Voice over work. And I landed a great agent.

Coming up:  Doug and Chico Presents: Susan Sparks

Tune in on Doug’s page over Facebook Live

Each week will feature a different author.

A trial lawyer turned standup comedian and Baptist minister, Susan Sparks is the twenty-year senior pastor of the historic Madison Avenue Baptist Church in New York City. She is also a professional comedian touring nationally with a standup Rabbi and a Muslim comic in the Laugh in Peace Tour. The author of five books, a TEDx speaker, and an award-winning nationally syndicated columnist with the USA Today Network, Susan’s work has been featured in The Oprah
Magazine and other highfalutin places (la tee dah). Most importantly, Susan and her husband Toby love to fly fish, ride their Harleys, and eat great BBQ. Find out more at 
SusanSparks.com!

How do you hold onto hope in the midst of despair?

The answer is simple! All you need is love, a tiara, and a cupcake. Using these three festive metaphors, this book offers heart-warming meditations on finding your purpose (love), claiming your worth (a tiara), and holding onto your joy (a cupcake) — tools that can get you through the worst of times. Join Rev. Susan Sparks, ordained minister, comedian, and cancer survivor, to welcome joy into your life no matter what the circumstances.
