February 5, 2009 (Nashville, TN) – Nationally renowned speaker and author Susie Shellenberger is launching Susie, a new publication for teen girls.

As the creator of acclaimed teen girl publication Brio, Shellenberger served as the magazine’s editor for 19 years before publisher Focus on the Family discontinued its teen ministry and ceased publication last month. She quickly made the decision to publish her own magazine after receiving many encouraging letters from Brio fans who also suggested the new publication be named after its editor.

Susie will debut its premier print issue this May and Shellenberger is determined to make it more appealing and relevant than current and past magazines ministering to Christian teen girls. With a main focus to help readers grow spiritually, the publication will additionally cover girl-significant topics including fashion, modesty, family, self-injury, eating disorders, relationships and more.

“I’ve had the incredible opportunity to help motivate and shape an entire generation of girls and I’m now even more excited about ministering to girls on a new level through Susie magazine,” says Shellenberger.”

For advertising information, subscription details and to pitch articles, Shellenberger can be contacted directly at A website supporting Susie with additional magazine information and feature content will be available mid March.

An ordained minister through the Church of Nazarene, Susie Shellenberger is an international speaker and an author of more than 40 books that have sold in excess of 1.5 million copies combined. She served as a youth pastor and a high school teacher before starting Brio in 1990. Shellenberger has debated Dr. Ruth on Fox News and has been featured as a teen expert on “The Montel Show.” Her university alma mater named her “Woman of the Century” in 2000.
