About the Author

Susan Dyer-Layer, LCSW is a licensed Clinical Social Worker with the State of Florida. She earned her master's degree in social work (MSW) from the University of South Florida (USF). She has served as a Christian school counselor for 14 years and is a published researcher and trainer, and has co-authored articles about bully prevention and post abortion grief.


Through the Lord's leading while serving as a school counselor, she developed this Christian curriculum to teach students to love and encourage others like Christ. Through the ROCK Character™ expectations and curriculum, peer mentoring program, and other interventions to promote His peace, peer conflict significantly decreased. She combined this curriculum with her years of experience to write a comprehensive manual that would provide guidance and instruction for Christian schools. 


She is happily married to her husband Dave and they are blessed with two wonderful children. The Peace Keepers statement of faith embraces our belief in the Holy trinity consisting of Jesus the Son of God, the Holy Spirit, and the Father God, that we are saved by His amazing grace, and that the Bible is the sacred inerrant word of God.
