Behind the Scenes

Behind the scenes of all of the amazing ways the Pruning Hooks women SERVE Jesus!



Susi Jackson, TreasurerBlueBonnet Photos (079) - Cropped
Susi is one of the rare people who can couple absolute LOVE and JOY in serving with numbers and spreadsheets. She is the one to show us the hard facts as Pruning Hooks’ fearless Treasurer, all while smiling and believing that Jesus can do anything. Susi has helped us plan for our future while celebrating all that Jesus has asked this crazy group of ladies to do. Outside of crunching numbers and balancing our account, Susi can be found listening to good music and dancing like nobody’s watching! She is passing her “joy to the world” attitude on to her precious tribe of Gracie, Will, her husband, Mark and the family bunny, Roxy. Susi is, simply stated, a good time. She brings laughter and love to every meeting and belief that Jesus has this all in His hands.


Shelley Eastland, Secretary

Shelley is a wife, mom and servant leader. God brought her loving husband, Mike, into her life nearly 20 years ago. Together they have three very active boys who shower their mom with the gift of diamonds…regular visits to baseball diamonds to cheer for them! As a family the Eastlands enjoy travelling, attending collegiate and professional sporting events, and water sports. She is passionate about studying Gods Word, and encouraging and equipping others to foster their personal relationship with Almighty God and living as Disciples of Christ. In addition to attending and serving her home church, St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, she is active in the Houston-West Emmaus Community, local Parent Teacher Associations, and serves on the Pruning Hooks board as treasurer.

Thank you!

Pruning Hooks Ministries would not be the ministry is today without the help of these amazing women who have sacrificed their time to serve on our board previously.  You ladies have made a huge impact to our organization, to our area, and to so many women’s lives –  just by saying “YES!” to Jesus! Thank you and we love you!
