Hi I'm Susan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a wife, mother, and grandmother. I've been married for 35 years, and have 4 children, and 6 grandchildren. I read, knit, crochet, and play on the computer. I've been a member of the Church for 38 years, and have served in Primary and Relief Society.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in high school, I met a new girl in my school who told me about the Church. She taught me about the Church, and the gospel, and during study hall we would read the Book of Mormon together. I investigated through her for 4 years. My parents were not happy when they learned I wanted to join, and would not give permission for me to be baptized. I coasted along for a few more years, and finally, one day decided to be baptized, at long last. It was about 10 years since I had first learned about the Church. I coasted along for a few more years, mostly inactive, when I finally decided that I had to do something, and I decided that I definitely loved the Church, and I started attending meetings. I have been active ever since -- and that was when I met the man whom I would marry! I love this Church and can't imagine being part of any other.

How I live my faith

I try very hard to do as Jesus would do. I try to be kind to others, do a good deed daily, read and study the Scriptures, and serve in my callings.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are really members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that he died for us. As far as I understand it, this makes us Christians. We use the New Testament, we study the teachings of the Savior. In our meetings we talk about Jesus Christ, and encourage each other to emulate the Savior. Show more Show less
