Susan Croox was born and raised in Santa Maria, California, with three sisters. She has always loved music, reading, and spending time outdoors.

Susan graduated from Wheaton College in 2003 with a B.A. in Music. After spending time on staff at the Prayer Furnace of Chicago and finishing the Intro to IHOP internship in Kansas City, MO, Susan married Jason Croox, who is also a worship leader.

Jason and Susan then spent several  years on staff and then as directors at Starfish Learning Center, a non profit Christian after school program in the inner city of Chicago. It was during this time that Susan entered the ambitious yet rewarding journey of motherhood.

After the birth of their third child, Jason became worship pastor at Belmont Assembly of God in Chicago, where Susan is now part of the worship team. Susan spends most of her day cleaning the kitchen and taking care of the kids, but also works from home grant writing for Starifsh Learning Center.
