About the Author
Hope you're ready for a mesmerizing look at the history of women's ordination in the Episcopal Church of the 1980's in Southern Virginia and its impact on my life. My name is Susan Bowman, the author of "Lady Father," a memoir which chronicles my journey through the Episcopal ordination process of the 1980's and my subsequent ministries. It is compelling, real, humorous, painful, and joyful. It is filled with real-life experiences which will speak loudly to anyone who feels called to ministry in the church, anyone who is in the process towards ordination, those who are serving in ministry in the church, as well as those in any profession who find themselves in an uphill battle against tradition and just plain discrimination. I lived through it all and have survived and grown and blossomed, even though there was a moment in time when I almost gave it all up because I just couldn't believe that Christians could treat anyone the way I had been treated. I am now retired and, in the words of Maya Angelou, "I wouldn't take nothin' for my journey now.
