Hi I'm KSue

I'm a Mormon. I was raised in the Church, my mom a member, my father was not. I love teaching.

About Me

I am a wife of over 30 years. I'm a mother of 4. I have 6 babygrands. I love to organize, tie quilts, teach seminary, and travel with my husband. I am a latch key kid. I was born in the church, I am the youngest, my Mother was promised and given a blessing that if she would accept the call of Primary president even though she was suppose to remain in bed throughout this pregnancy I would be born and all would be well. When I was born it was a miracle, they say I wasn't in a womb a free agent from the start I guess! My mom was a member, my father was not, but he supported her in all her callings. For years we had my aunt and my mother in our home to care for. I am the only survivor of my immediate childhood family, I often "feel" alone. I don't know how people deal with death without the knowledge of the Plan of Happiness! I hesitated attending seminary as a youth but graduated with 4 years released time High School class attendance. I have been blessed to teach the youth since I was 18 in one way or another. I know the Book of Mormon to be the words of prophets, and that prophets exist today. I have a testimony in Jesus Christ and understand that he indeed suffered for my sins, for the atonement I am ever grateful. I don't want to be the weak link and make effort to keep us together. I totally believe that if you have a passion for something you EXERT yourself.

Why I am a Mormon

I totally believe somewhere somehow that I was given the privilege and blessing to be born with a testimony to start with. I've had my ups and downs but without my rooted testimony I'd be a lost cause!! I find happiness in going to my meetings, doing family history, being with my family, and the idea of being without them for eternity, well I just can't imagine it. I enjoy so much going to the Temple, it is a place of meditation, peace and service, a place to learn and grown and be a link to others. I am mormon because I choose it. I choose to attempt to live up to the covenants that I made at baptism because any dumb things I've done or crazy life situations can be over come the better I know and serve the Savior. Bad things are over come because of occasions made to have spiritual experiences that bring me closer to my Heavenly Father grounding my roots deeper resulting in becoming a stronger disciple of Jesus Christ. I am mormon because my Mother taught me. I am mormon because of her unconditional love. I am mormon because of repentance. I am mormon because of Faith in families for eternity hoped for. I am mormon because with every fiber of my being I believe that the boy Joseph Smith just like prophets of old prayed and had a vision and translated the Book of Mormon into scriptures for me to read and connect the dots of the very Plan of Happiness described in Alma 42. I am mormon because when I pray to know the truth of all things I feel peace, warmth, no confusion and power to make and do good things.

How I live my faith

I teach seminary and have for over 18 years. It seems no matter where we go to live I am blessed to learn to know the youth. I have served as both ward and Stake Camp Directors. I have taught sunday school both adults and teens. I was blessed to teach primary and work in the nursery. I love teaching Relief Society and learning with the women in the greatest organization of women in the world.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

I have been prompted to read a book to someone that would make a difference by the Holy Ghost. With the strength of the Holy Ghost I have been bouyed up. When at the road of choice and indecision the Holy Ghost blesses me with inspiration to make the right choice and has weighed me down to know of wrong choices. When living a prayerful day the gift of the Holy Ghost can guide me and encourage me lift me out of sadness, darkness confusion and into the light. I know that the HolyGhost can give me inspiration to make right choices as I live my day. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

As a member of the church who is anxiously engaged in service I can say that you learn to love the people more if you aren't baseing your service on a pay check or fear of not geting paid. I know for me, it's about loving and knowing the people you serve and having an obligation to your faith. Show more Show less
