Hi I'm Susan

I am a mother, grandmother, and highschool math teacher and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happy wife of 28 years. I love my family! I have four wonderful children who are all married and starting their own lives. I have the joy of 6 grandchildren and the hope of a few more in the coming years. I teach high school math and love my students. It is a challenge every day! Our youth are so full of energy they keep my on my toes. In my spare time I enjoy the wonderful mountians of Idaho. The crisp clean air and the cool breezes. Oh and a fish or two on my fishing line. While home I have a busy sewing room to quilt in and plenty of books to read.

Why I am a Mormon

I know where I belong in the world because of my belief in the gospel. My mother taught me about God and Jesus Christ, it was at her knee I learned to love them. She took me to church and showed me how to live my life. But, as I grew and left home I began to doubt and made a few choices that took me away from her teachings. As my life fell apart I felt a need to re-visit her teachings. It was then that I truly began to pray and ask about the church. I spent many days, weeks, and even months in reading the scriptures, the Bible and The Book of Mormon. One night as I knelt in prayer a very warm and comforting feeling came over me I knew! I knew that my Heavenly Father gave me this wonderful mother to teach me of him, of his son Jesus Christ and of the plan we all agreed to. I have been so grateful for the Gospel in my life. I love knowing why we are here and where we are going. It directs my entire life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving those around me, by sharing my standards and belief with all I meet. I live my faith by taking care of my family and teaching them about my Heavenly Father. I try my best to be a good neighbor, citizen and friend.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a guide for how I live my life! It is scripture that was written by the inhabitants of the American continent. It tells of their lives, choices and teachings. It covers the visit of Jesus Christ to them and how he established his Church among the people. I love the teachings of the Book of Mormon it is clear, simple and direct. The Book of Mormon is a book of teachings, promises and blessings. Reading it will bring you closer to God and the understanding of why we are here and how we should live our life. It is truly ‘Another Testament of Christ!’ Show more Show less
