A Party Begins in the Heart- an invitation to never-ending celebration.Wherever Sue Buchanan may be, a party is likely to erupt. And with friends like Bill and Gloria Gaither,Laurie Beth Jones Joni Erickson Tada, Mark Lowry, Sheila Walsh, Sandi Patti—and Sue’s self-proclaimed spiritual gift of exaggeration—things just might get out of hand. An ordinary gathering becomes an all-out celebration.

A shameless name-dropper, Sue can hardly resist gossiping about well-known friends She dishes a bit of the n e w s y, a bundle of the nosy, and absolutely none of the nasty. Sue has the answers to your wildest questions: How many pairs of shoes does Sheila Walsh have? Where does Jerry Jenkins pen his best-selling novels? What kind of pajamas does Vestal Goodman wear? Why did Liz Curtis Higgs leave her Christmas tree up all year?

A Party Begins in the Heart features anecdotes from Sue’s cherished friends along with mouth-watering recipes, uplifting songs, time management hints, and plenty of ideas for creating a “party in the heart” lifestyle. Scattered throughout are emergency Scriptures—for when your heart has “done run out of party!” “Celebrating is a mind set,” says Sue. “It’s embracing all that is delightful, fanciful, and imaginative.” Whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary, or just a Tuesday after-noon. A Party Begins in the Heart will encourage you to celebrate every day.

A Party Begins in the Heart offers Sue Buchanan’s distinctive blend of practical and preposterous ideas for entertaining guests and celebrating day-to-day life. As a survivor of breast cancer, Sue communicates with authority the necessity of rejoicing in spite of circumstances—yes, she even celebrated through chemotherapy. Sharing whimsical wisdom ("celebrate feeding the cat") and offering unlikely advice with her merry and witty look at life and God, inspirational speaker Sue Buchanan charms audiences everywhere she goes.

“When you pick up a book by Sue you are guaranteed several things. You will laugh loudly, learn a lot and want to pass it on to your friends.” Sheila Walsh Author of Living Fearlessly and keynote speaker at Women of Faith conferences.

“Sue Buchanan writes like she speaks, with lots of exclamation points!! And why not, when you're throwing a party as fun as this one? Sue really is the original party girl, but beneath all the light-hearted fun is a deep-seated faith in Christ that shines even brighter than her gaudiest outfit. Party on, sister!” Liz Curtis Higgs Author of Help! I'm Laughing and I Can't Get Up and Bad Girls of the Bible.

“It's great to know how many pairs of shoes Sheila Walsh has or what kind of pajamas Vestal wears. But what I really want to know is, who does Bill Gaither's hair? Sue didn’t tell half the dirt she has on most of us. Will the next book include arrest records and incriminating photos? My mama doesn’t give her fajita recipe to just anyone! A Party Begins in the Heart is worth the price for that alone. Sue shares lots of gossip that you can't get just anywhere.” Mark Lowry Author of Live Long and Die Laughing and star of the video Mark Lowry on Broadway.
