Hi I'm Susan

I'm from Virginia. I have two wonderful children. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Me

My husband recently left me, which has prompted me to further my education and start a new career. I have custody of our two small children, and they are the light of my life. I enjoy outdoor sports like hiking and fishing. I also believe we can always find ways to better ourselves and learn new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that I cannot become my best without Heavenly Father's guidance. I know he wants the absolute best for me, and he is leading me every day toward eternal joy. I know that this religion was established by Jesus Christ to unite his people under his banner.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving in the Nursery. I love teaching children the simple truths that the gospel offers. I also enjoy participating in the Visiting Teaching program and the Relief Society activities, including a book club. I use prayer, scripture study, and Family Home Evenings to teach my own children to follow Christ.

What are Mormon church services like? Are visitors allowed at church meetings? Can I attend church?

The primary difference between our Sunday service and most other Christian services is that everyone gets the opportunity to participate. We teach each other, not sit and listen while the same person speaks every week. I love this system because we have the opportunity to learn about each other, share our experiences, and see the gospel from different perspectives. Show more Show less
