Susan Nord

Board Member

“The Lord has given me a heart to serve, and I have been for decades in a number of capacities. For over 20 plus years our church has contributed to CFLC in various ways. I retired from commercial real estate after 50 years 14 months ago, and I knew that the Lord wanted me to serve with a faith-based organization. I’ve been drawn to CFLC as I so value their heart and support for pregnant women and families. My husband and I have been married for 36 years, yours and mine became ours; our children are all in their 40’s and we have 7 precious grandkids located in Avon, CO, Seymore, TX, and Nashville, TN. This Nana loves to visit and enjoy them as often as possible and FaceTime with them! We attend Redeemer Baptist Church in Aurora, CO, I’m involved and serve on a number of committees. We love to travel, I love to enjoy lunches with girlfriends and my bucket list item this year has been learning Pickleball. I also work out at the rec center with a girlfriend or I’m at home working out.”

Board Member

I am a 5th generation native to the state of Colorado, having grown up in the Denver area. My high school sweetheart, Crystal, and I have been happily married for 22 years. One day, while sitting on top of a hill, admiring the Rocky Mountains and watching the sunset, Crystal expressed her desire to have six kids – three boys and three girls. Today, we are proud parents of six children who have been blessed with musical talents. We pray that they continue to use their gift to honor and worship God. Currently, we reside in Elizabeth, and we love spending time outdoors, exploring the natural beauty of our state. God has been faithful and has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams.
