Suebiquitous Podcast

FUNNY may not always be a word associated with faith-based podcasts, but host Sue Duffield’s outrageous and humorous view of life just might be the silly salve you need. Her co-host and musician-techie husband, Jeff Duffield, joins her on many of these episodes for the benevolent bantering of sideshow antics, along with his own personal black and white view of everything. The “Suebiquitous Podcast” (a spoonerism of Sue and ubiquitous) pretty much describes her all-over-the-place, gray area crazy life -- full of eccentricities. Special guests also are frequent and add incredible insight and hope for Christians world-wide.


174. Duffields LIVE from Harvest Chapel!
It's not often the Duffields put their "LIVE" concerts on the Suebiquitous Podcast, but here they go! Enjoy the music, the interaction, the banter - and especially the hope they share in Jesus. This episode is the pre-recorded LIVE audio version of the concert from Sunday morning March 17th, 2024 at Harvest Chapel of Venice in Venice, Florida. Pastors Phil and Jan Enloe have been dear friends of the Duffields for decades and their mission of the church is to reach the senior adults 55 and over population. They do it with excellence. The LIVE video version on YouTube!

173. Setting the Atmosphere for God to Work
After receiving an email from a woman who described her difficulties with her husband, her finances and her whole disposition, Sue Duffield (host) reads on to see how much God made a difference in this woman's life after a recent church service setting where little was spoken about marriage, finances or even depresion. It may come to a surprise to some worship leaders, Christian singers and even pastors - whatever YOU think might work in a worship service or church event to inspire, doesn't always change lives. In fact, it's quite certain that the Holy Spirit (if given room) will do more for the atmosphere of worship than any planned or pre-programmed style of agenda or order of service. And here's one example.. where God took over, and nothing else mattered.

172. A Couch to Kitchen Special with the Duffields
It's not often the Duffields coincide their "Couch to Kitchen" LIVE videos with the Suebiquitous Podcast, but today's one of those special days! This edition is from their most recent Facebook LIVE and YouTube LIVE broadcast, featuring a Great American Standard, an 80s Pop tune, and a few hymns and gospel songs. It's what they do! And for those who haven't had the chance to catch them LIVE online on Thursday nights, here's your chance to enjoy the audio version of serendipity in their unrehearsed, unedited way! And it's just in time for "Spring Forward" weekend!

171. Unnoticed
If you've ever felt unnoticed, invisible or insignificant, then the news of the Samaritan woman that Jesus empowered, will give you all you need. People like her were thought outcasts and even inferior, but so were many who were attracted to Jesus anyway. Do you even feel the gratification of honor? Many don't. This episode is a glance at the true possibility that this Samaritan woman, disregarded as nothing, could have very well been the first evangelist - telling others of "the man who told me everything I've ever done." There is no "one size fits all" in the Kingdom. Praise God for the indivduality He gives us.
15:33 2/24/24
170. Scattered, Covered and Smothered
Sue Duffield's experience with Waffle House is such a fun and meaningful encounter - almost like church! Are you "scattered, covered and smothered?" The thought here is, she surely hopes you are! When we ask God to forgive us, His forgiveness comes not because we say, “I will do better”, but only on the basis of what Jesus did on the cross. No matter how awful we've been, the blood of Jesus is ENOUGH to cleanse, purify and save you...kind of like scattering your sin, covering your heart and smothering you with His goodness! God, the Father sent Jesus to suffer, bleed and die so that He can forgive you. Wow! Take a few minutes to bask in the Light of that statement..
10:03 2/9/24
169. Being Quirky Can Be An Advantage
How to be quirky - well, just be yourself with a little twist. Jeff and Sue Duffield know their quirkiness, and actually thrive in it! Quirky people are described as being unusual in a likable and endearing way. To give off a more quirky vibe, you may need to change the way you think, dress, and act. The main thing to keep in mind is to always be yourself and to enjoy things that you genuinely like, even if they're not well understood. If you embrace the things that make you different and start thinking more creatively, you can be quirky!  Exactly. And there are even examples in the bible of people who were quirky! It really is OK to stand out and be yourself, no matter what!
30:58 1/25/24
168. Your Story Isn't Over
We know God is in control. We know He is able to heal, but right in the middle of the messy and the painful, many of us tell God what we believe to be our own carnal truth: We don’t always understand His love or His mercy in stressful times, and often that’s when our faith is severely tested. Your story isn't over. God’s not finished with your story just yet. No matter what. For the year of 2024, host Sue Duffield will be teaching and training women HOW to write their own faith story. This will happen at a few retreats that she'll be speaking for this year. And just because we start writing our faith story, doesn’t mean life is over - in fact it’s quite the opposite! Our faith story is progressing every day and with an open-ended story, we can be hopeful that God will carry you until its completion. “I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6
11:52 1/12/24
167. The Sequential Order of Things
Sue Duffield has always loved the thought and plan of the sequence of songs on albums by all kinds of artists. There's plan; there's a reason, especially in the concept album department. But there's also another kind of order too. And with a little levity and inspiration, this episode may just become a favorite for 2023. If you want to grow in your faith, you must step into the divine ordering of things for your life. You must, by the Spirit of God, walk in the divine ordering of things so that your life will forever be joined to a God of order. Be encouraged, that even today has it’s roots in yesterday’s ordering of misalignment or failure. It also has the synchrony of many faith-filled days prior, to get you through the most difficult assignment of this very day.
12:33 12/21/23
166. Bending the Rules A Bit
The blessing and critically acclaimed story of the "daughter of Abraham" found in Luke chapter 13, is best described as the "bent over woman." Sue Duffield has shared this story with thousands of women with the power of God's word through Luke, giving women hope for their own divine healing. We just have to listen to HIS voice.
14:14 12/1/23
165. Ellie Oswald and Faith to Action for Orphans
Elli Oswald is the Executive Director of the Faith to Action Initiative, a coalition of organizations seeking to promote best practices in global orphan care.  She has served as a missions pastor at Bethany Community Church in Seattle and as part of World Vision International’s Child Protection Technical Team, specializing in community-based care for children deprived of parental care.  She has a B.A. from Pepperdine University and a M.A. in Cross Cultural Studies and International Development from Fuller Theological Seminary. Family-based care for orphans world-wide is the ultimate goal. This episode with host Sue Duffield, is both informative and entertaining, as she and Elli navigate the truth about orphan care, the desperate need for support to families and the evidence of success when communities understand the need.
30:29 11/13/23
164. I'm Too Busy For That!
Host Sue Duffield is presented with the question often, "Aren’t you just too busy? How do you do all the travel, the conferences, the podcasts (4), recording, the followup with events - let alone spend quality time with those you love, etc. etc.?" And to that she usually responds, "I dunno." But her gauge is always IF she's too busy doing what she loves or feels called to do, and IF she falls into anyone of those five definitive categories mentioned in this episode, then maybe it IS time to take a good look at the difference between busyness and productivity.  Take time to reflect, rejuvenate and even resusitate yourself if you have to, but always be aware that if you're doing way too much, your body and your LORD will always tell you! Sue discusses five key points that are almost full-proof if you feel like you're doing WAY too much. If your relationship with God suffers at the expense of you going non-stop, then that's the only proof you need to know.  It's time to do something about it.
16:54 10/27/23
163. The Greater Good
When God promises that we will lack no good thing, He means we will lack nothing that would bring us more of God. We will have absolutely everything that will bring us more of God. But disappointment is rampid right now, even among believers and leaders within the church. It's as if we've given ourselves permission to "assume" that everything WILL go our way, if we do everything right. But that's not always the case. This episode with host, Sue Duffield, shares how the feelings of inadequacy and disappointment is one of the enemy's greatest tools to keep you from doing God’s will. We surely don’t have to complicate it any more. Do the work of the Father; be diligent in learning and reading and rubbing shoulders with the ones who champion you, and realize that disappointment was never in God’s plan for you. Be ready for the greater good.
11:31 10/9/23
162. Every Woman Every Season
Sue Duffield has a passion for teaching women to thrive and not just survive the seasons of life. This season of abundance will get you through your tough times, to teach you how to  give when you have nothing left to give; to love when you have no one to love; to share when your table is bare; to sacrifice and serve, even when your body is tired. This is the season. And it happens in every season for every woman.  
14:58 9/25/23
161. That Costco Miracle
This episode is the unexpected follow up to the previous episode 160, capturing the full emotion, surprise and prophetic way that only God could orchestrate in the lives of the Duffields. The Yamaha Piano Company and Costco are just the role players in this long-time, deeply tucked away grand piano dream for Sue Duffield and her husband, Jeff. But it takes a whole lot more than a dream, it takes a great deal of money to purchase such a musical instrument like this brand new Yamaha Baby Grand. And there in lies the miracle.. Sue's hope is that as you listen to this progressive journey of unexpected blessing, that you too will capture the essence and diligence of seeing God through when you have a deeply hidden desire in your life. The best quote of this episode is: "It's a joy for me (Sue) to see your (Jeff) dream come true." And this is as it should be in all believers, because it's imperative for your health and well-being to always celebrate the mountaintop experiences in others. Then, sit back and see how God opens doors for you. The supernatural influx of blessing as you bless others, has no limit.
28:47 9/11/23
160. Faith To Believe
Faith is an extremely powerful force. And without it, we can't even begin to please God. It's purely impossible according to Hebrews 11:6. And since we're living in these crazy, challenging and even urgent times, most of us are in desperate need of an all access pass to faith. It's not surprising too, that faith without works is dead. Seriously, dead. This episode begins with host Sue Duffield's surprising exposure to a Yamaha grand piano sale in Costco, none the less! This isn't her first time having a Holy Ghost inspired moment in a box store, but it surely will go down as another one of her sacred moments with this phenomenon called "dreams" as it defines her unique moments. Take the time to really dream; give to others like you've never given before, and then sit back and watch what God does. This is a progressing story, happening in real time... And it's not over yet.
13:57 8/28/23
159. Pre Approval is Everything!
A pre-approval before purchasing a home will give you an idea of the loan amount that you can afford. It's necessary to get a mortgage pre-approval prior to selecting or even thinking about a particular property.   SO, ask host Sue Duffield, how she knows all this, and she'll tell you - it’s been one intense experience after another. The details of purchasing a home, in this economy, let alone being self-employed, is the challenge. Then, as proven just the other day, there are some debts that need to be paid before all this show-down can happen. And the irony is, some of the debt that was created, which isn’t collassal, has different account numbers, which when getting online to confirm your accounts, some of the numbers don’t match up with the lender's numbers stated in the requirements!    Talk about details! It’s a real test of faith with all this. But when proven to stay thankful and grateful throughout the entire process, with gratitude towards the banks, the underwriters and the lenders to all stay in sync until closing day, well let's just say - boy howdie - that’ll preach!   God wants to be intimately involved in your life. Every detail, till that official "Closing Day!"
12:49 8/14/23
158. A Barrel Of Monkeys
Sometimes God gives us a barrel of obnoxious, tricky and annoying monkeys. He watches what we do with them. This barrel could be a tough marriage, raising a difficult toddler, a stress producing job, terminal sickness, addictions, or physical or mental illnesses. There are a lot of assorted barrels out there, and that's no easy game. Sue Duffield's mother was the master "Barrel of Monkeys" toy game winner! She’d kill it, with her precision and ease of scooping up the monkeys one by one, saying, “Don’t ever let a monkey drop; keep your eyes on the very last monkey - watching to grip the next one, and so on…” she’d say.  The comical yet sincere challenge in this episode is to come out of the chaos and into God's order who spoke the world into existence. Find rest in Him from the anxieties and stresses and throw out the weight that those aggrivating barrel of monkeys produce!
14:21 7/31/23
157. John Stange: The Compassionate Influencer
There aren't too many John Stanges around. They just don't exist. Now, John would say, "Well, that's a good thing, LOL!", but most who know him know that this world would be even MORE enhanced and blessed in just about every publishing, virtual-producing, podcasting and platform-creating outreach - if there WERE MORE just like him. Host, Sue Duffield, recalls the first time meeting this young leader as far back as the Pocono Mountain Bible Conference days, remembering just how special John was and is to this day. What an entertaining, enjoyable, informative and connecting conversation this episode is.. Take notes. John holds degrees in Bible, Education, and Counseling, is a certified speaker, trainer and coach with the John Maxwell Team, and serves as the Lead Pastor of Core Creek Community Church in Langhorne, PA. John is also an adjunct professor at Cairn University, where he teaches courses on church planting, theology, and counseling, and he serves as the Director of the National Mission Board which is a ministry that is focused on church planting and church health. John hosts four podcasts, "The Chapter-A-Day Audio Bible," “Daily Devotions with Pastor John,” "Dwell on These Things," and "Platform Launchers." At present, his shows have been downloaded over 8 million times by listeners throughout the world. John's books are focused on spiritual growth, leadership, marriage and the practical and applicational aspects of following Jesus. He recently signed with Penguin Random House to publish his latest book “Dwell on These Things” which was released on May 25, 2021.  John has been married to Andrea since 1998 and they have been blessed with four children.

156. The Tempe Brown Story
A jazz singer, entertainer, writer and artist discovers the lordship of Jesus as a result of reading a hotel-placed Gideon Bible and it literally changes her world within an instant. This is just the beginning of an extraordinary life and career when God uses a vessel like Tempe Brown.  Host, Sue Duffield has known Tempe for well over forty years and she'll quickly tell you - Tempe's influence and inspiration has had a major impact on her own speaking and singing. This episode is such a fun and interactive dialogue between two Holy Spirit-driven women who know no obstacle in sharing Jesus. Tempe has authored several books and recorded studio albums, while also a regional speaker/trainer for Stonecroft Ministries (, guiding women to live out their extraordinary purpose and calling.    
27:58 7/3/23
155. Just Talk It Out
How to talk to people who don't think like you. How to love people who don't think like you. How to engage in conversation without making it about YOU... These are the "how to's" that are most needed in today's culture. Sue Duffield gathers talking points for being a better listener and not just someone who has to get their opinions heard. What would happen if you took this summer to spend time with those who don't look like you, act like you or believe like you?  Go ahead - just talk it out, and see what happens. The greatest gift we can give each other is to just listen, and listen long, and then maybe, when the time comes, talk it out. Words are the only real force of either connection or disconnection that we have. And THE WORD, the word of God - is a power that supersedes any words that we may have. “Be ready at all times to answer anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you, but do it with gentleness and respect.” (1 Peter 3:15b-16a)  
13:56 6/19/23
154. I'm A Misfit
Do you ever feel like you just don't fit in sometimes? Join the crowd. Many that Sue Duffield has either interviewed or casually started conversations with, seem to say, "At times, I just don't feel like I fit in, kinda like I'm a misfit or something!" Join a candid and honest episode on why being a "misfit" isn't such a bad thing. Feeling maybe a tad out of step with the status quo of those around you? Feeling isolated, even lonely—like you're a square peg trying futilely to fit into a round hole? Well it's not surprising especially when outright-people-oriented extroverts seem to be more capable of fitting in with almost anybody (you know, the pretty people, the driven, the successful; the ones who get the most attention..). But at an event Sue Duffield attended, she watched how all were accepted; all were greeted kindly; all were deeply respected and all, no matter their looks, attire, their ability to communicate or respond and react socially, experienced a complete safe zone for any of us who call themselves misfits.
13:58 6/5/23
153. Let Summer Begin!
"Dear summer, I love you. You have given me weeks at the Jersey shore as a kid , endless dinners on the grill, pool dates with friends, scattered flip flops everywhere, bonfires by the lake, Mr. Softee treat truck, and so much more. You have nursed my broken heart more than once through the years with gifts of sunshine and ice cream. Each year, you come back again to help me write another incredible story. Thank you."  P.S. Dear summer, you’re my absolute favorite, but don’t tell the other seasons.. Host, Sue Duffield, makes a vow to once again spend another summer in gratitude and worship. This is a time to feel the heavenly warmth on our face and revel in the beauty that surrounds us. Relax, have fun, celebrate, and abide in gratitude for the blessings that surround. Matthew 24:32 says, "Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its branches become tender and sprout leaves, you know that summer is near." Here are ways, mentioned in this episode, to make the most of your summer by consuming both refreshing fruits AND walking each day WITH the fruit of the Spirit.
11:26 5/22/23
152. The Psalms Will Calm
Here's an episode with notes for this year’s "Ladies Only Retreat" in Twin Pines, PA. It's a study in the book of Psalms, highlighting each session with definitive passages of prophecies while dissecting each line and phrase. Sue Duffield takes a good look and lesson on what it means to pray the psalms. And as a project, she teaches women to re-write a psalm or two, in their own words, with their own sentiments and language. It's a significantly spiritual process to unfold some of the “not-so-popular” psalms by discovering how they apply to each one of us in the current world we live. Who wrote the Psalms? And where is Jesus in all of it? Good questions to ask, and especially a good reason to discover how deeply woven the Son of God is IN the entire book. What does it mean, "He restores my soul"? Well, let's find out as we take on this journey online during this episode. The Psalms will calm.
19:00 5/16/23
151. Influencer OR Influenza?
Influencers often inspire or guide the actions of others by posting about something (such as a consumer product or service) that they use or endorse based on brand partnerships. And today's episode is a sure shot response to Sue Duffield's recent "Effector" award of Top Influencer, but what she initially read was "Influenza!" The most all-inclusive definition of an influencer is a person who has the ability to influence others. So, a politician making a speech, a business expert leading a seminar, and a celebrity endorsing a product are all technically influencers, and yes even pastors, singers and keynote speakers. An infectious personality, like Sue, may know a lot, but an individual still needs the ability to advocate, sell and drum up enthusiasm. Influencers normally have high engagement rates with their audience (in person or on-line), taking on a hands-on approach with their people, showing great care, and always looking to serve their needs to better understand them. So, just how important is it to be an effective influencer for the Kingdom's sake? Everything. Let Jesus shine SO much in your life that you're infectious and that you get reports of your influence - from all generations.
13:16 5/8/23
150. Josh Singletary
An "off stage", reflective and honest interview with no real direction or pre-programmed questions, makes this episode so enjoyable. Host, Sue Duffield, sits in her closet studio outside Nashville, while Josh Singletary opens his mic in his own music room across town - and away they go, with barely an edit! Very funny. Very emotional. And very real.. To those who are new to Josh Singletary, here's what you didn't know you needed to know: He's the red-headed, bow-tie wearin' baritone singer with Southern Gospel Music's Award-winning Tribute Quartet; a piano player extraordinaire; a lover of great classic comedians like Red Skelton; a stage presence so inclusive, you'll feel like he's been your best friend for years; a truly amazing communicator and producer; and a comedic talent with a vulnerable approach so deep, he probably doesn't even know how good he is.  To quote John C. Maxwell, "Everyone communicates but few connect", Josh Singletary has mastered the art of connection with his love for Jesus and his music, and it's just plain fun to see how he weaves it all together.  
49:50 4/29/23
149. Bend My Heart
How in the world could that heavy metal door just bend and mold itself around the stationary telephone pole with amazing ease? This question answered, plus a whole lot of levity and spiritual honesty, comes at the expense of a crazy car mishap and that telephone pole. That not-so-euphoric experience was a conversation piece for some time until Jeff Duffield, Sue's husband, had his own "come-to-Jesus-meeting" with a vehicle and a container pole at an ice cream stand. But that's another story... One of Sue's favorite song's lyric says, "Move me with Your message once again, and bend my heart once more around the tree..." (written by Brandt Gillespie) (Bend my heart once more around the tree? What could that mean?)  Here's a few interpretations, talked about on this episode:  1. Mold my heart around the cross, the stationary immovable depiction of a painful, gruesome method of execution? How strange.. 2. Take my most prized life-sustaining organ and exchange it for God's act of love in Christ's sacrifice? How weird is that?? 3. Better yet, live each day with a "cross" impression on my heart, much like a piece of metal bending around a telephone pole?? Sounds somewhat foolish.. Sue Duffield believes it makes perfect sense to those who, for the Kingdom's sake, desire hearts that are bent over backwards, forwards, sideways or whatever it takes, to make a "God impression" in this world. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” 1 Corinthians 1:18-19
22:09 4/25/23
148. Overcoming Compassion Fatigue with Dr. Don Lichi
Sue Duffield's guest, Donald A. Lichi, PhD is a licensed psychologist, serving as Vice President of Emerge Counseling Ministries in Akron, OH. Don gives such great wisdom when it comes to listening, serving and even recovering from compassion fatigue. This epsiode was recorded soon after the news of the Covenant School shooting and  devastation here in Nashville, so his heart is both tender, compassionate and hopeful for those familes who will forever be in a stage of recovery and healing.  Throughout his career, Dr. Lichi has taught as adjunct professor with Trinity International University (IL), the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (AGTS), the Asia Theological Center (Singapore), and All Nations Theological Seminary (Malawi, Africa). He also taught for six years in the graduate school at the University of Akron. He was in private practice for over five years, taught school, and directed a school-based counseling program for six years. While in the United States Air Force, he served for three years in Italy and three years in Alaska. He has been a speaker at numerous conferences and workshops on pastoral health, Christian education, parenting, marriage, and family issues. He has published several articles on Christian mental health, and is the co-author of the book, Broken Windows of the Soul (Moody Press). Recent ministry has taken him to India, Brazil, Thailand, Ecuador, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Romania, China, Malaysia, Russia, Hungary, Nicaragua, and Singapore. Currently, he serves on the pastoral teaching team of the Akron Chinese Christian Church and the board of Emmanuel Christian Academy, which ministers to “at risk” children in the inner city of Akron, OH. Best of all, he is married to Marcie and they have three adult children and eight grandchildren.

147. Whatcha Cookin'?
Sheep don't eat fish, that we're aware of. But "Feed My Sheep", makes one wonder - what DO they eat, and what does that mean from a scriptural context? This narrative of an episode starts with the disciples of Jesus having another encounter with the risen Lord. This time He breaks into their everyday world and turns it upside down. They realize that they can't even go fishing without the help of the Lord. Jesus, now, the RISEN Lord, says something that will forever change how we view life on the other side of the cross. He says to Peter, “Feed my sheep.” Everything changes. Peter knows there's no going back. He'll never be able to "fish" in the same way again. Then enter "The Waffle House", and how a modern day approach to hearing the voice of God can even happen in a favorite fastfood breakfast spot! When we choose to dwell on God’s light and truth, our souls can overflow with the comfort of being guided by God (see Psalm 43:3). Talk about a FEAST! When we choose to live close to God’s heart, we overflow with delight and joy (see verse 4). So, “Whatcha Cookin now??” If you are submerged in pain, sorrow, despair or confusion, maybe you need to give your soul a good talking to.  
14:08 4/3/23
146. Find My
The app, "Find My", takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to finding God. You'll enjoy this episode as Sue Duffield reveals how her Find My app saved her iPad. But what would happen if we had a "Find My God" app? Would we find God in our hearts? Good question. Discover five ways to recognize or discover God’s purpose for your life and why you should know about them so you can fulfill the purpose for which you were created. So, simply, let’s just say we’ll activate the “Find MY GOD” feature in your heart and brain today with this episode! The better we know the will of God, the more likely we’ll find God’s given purpose for our life.
14:03 3/27/23
145. Mike, Is That You?
Sue Duffield's plethora of stories and comedic experiences never quit. She goes back to the story of when she traveled with the Sammy Hall Singers, and an episode of embarrassment that still makes her laugh today. "Mike, Is That You?", will be forever embedded in your brain, once you hear the story. ”Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place," so said American humorist Mark Twain. Also mentioned in this episode 145 is Sue's former pastor and friend, John Hamercheck, whose humor and love of life was one of a kind.  Taking a good look at what laughter can do from a Christian perspective, is the constant desire and focus of Sue's ministry. In this crazy world of bad news, we need humor! Sadly, it is our nature, a human tendency, to focus on shocking, tragic, and overall negative news and information. It fascinates us and we're simply drawn to it. But this time, we'll pay attention to the hilarity and joy of every day life, that should be at the heart of every believer.
