Life Happens – Learn to Bounce

Despite what you do for a living, who your friends and family are or where you live – life will present you challenges. While moms are often a sounding board for all of their family members’ life challenges, how moms handle these challenges is what often defines the direction of family life.

As a city-born kid turned farmer’s wife and mom, Susie Oberdahlhoff (O for short) uses her life lessons as a farm wife, mother and preachers daughter to bring a unique sense of humor to everyday experiences and brings a positive outlook to life. Susie O has traveled around the country from her home in Missouri to bring this message to mothers, business people and organizations.

“Life isn’t about how fast you run or how high you jump; but how well you bounce!” – Susie O

Recently, Susie came to Nebraska and gave her program, Kids, Crops, Sows & Cows; Life Happens – Learn to Bounce. The presentation showcases her 4 P’s of Prosperity in an upbeat manner that matches her life motto: if you rest, you rot!

4 P’s of Prosperity –

Be Proud of what you do
Be Positive about life
Be Patient – Rome wasn’t built in a day!
Be Persistent – Keep trying and trying and trying
