Hi I'm Susan

I'm a full-time reader. I'm a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi!!! I am a college student living in Texas. I was raised in and around Dallas with my 4 sisters and brother. I am planning on getting a degree in History and becoming a teacher. Apart from college I love to read anything from classics to contemporary. I am a HUGE geek and love it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. God is not cruel or mean, He is just and fair. Why would he stop giving us Prophets? He hasn't, we have prophets on the Earth today that can guide us to our loving Heavenly Father. This is one of the things that attracted me the most about this Church, having a living prophet to guide us. I can testify that we have a prophet sent from our Heavenly Father to guide us and help us. I am so grateful to have him!

How I live my faith

My favorite thing about Church on Sundays is how everyone helps each other. Ordinary members volunteer to teach the children, to give a talk during Sacrament, to give a prayer during lessons, or to give a lesson during Sunday School. No one is paid to do this, it is out of love and community. You are taught by your neighbors and friends. We teach each other what we know and it seems to make the experience even richer than learning from someone with a theology degree you don't know. I get to do this myself once a month and I rely on the Holy Ghost to help me when words aren't enough. This gift of the Holy Ghost is a powerful blessing!
