Hi I'm Sue

I'm a 4 year convert to the Church. It has changed my life, and I love the Gospel.

About Me

I am a 55 year old divorced woman, mother of 4 grown children (well, one is almost grown), and a recent transplant (2 yrs) to the Kansas City area. A native to NY, I was anything but religious growing up. A Jewish mother , a Catholic father, and living in an area where it wasn't cool to "believe".

Why I am a Mormon

I converted 4 short years ago, and my life was changed forevermore. Through a member missionary, my daughter and I attended church 5 years ago. The Spirit touched my heart, the members engulfed us in their arms. I was my young (12 yrs old) daughter who had enough sense to embrace the Gospel, and through her missionary discussions, I later became the 2nd member of our family to be baptized. I took a year, and was a real doubting Thomas. Growing up in a Jewish-Catholic home in liberal LI, NY did not prepare me for the feelings that overcame me each time I attended Church. What was that "thing" , that "light" I felt from many of the members I met? How could I have that too? I wasn't an easy road, but one I'm so grateful to have travelled. Today, I have a firm testimony of the Gospel and feel completely blessed to have crossed paths with that young woman.

How I live my faith

I recently relocated to the Kansas City area through inspiration. As I visited a friend in the area, I felt the presence of the Holy Ghost guiding me to move from my beautiful home in the mountains of Virginia. My then 15 year old daughter was horrified - I was taking her away from all that she knew - her school, her friends, her comfort zone. I moved completely on faith - and had to begin a financial practice (knowing no one) once I arrived in town. I have learned so much, and know that whenever I live by faith, by inspiration, by the Holy Ghost - I am NEVER disappointed. I've met lovely people, my business is thriving, and I await my next set of instructions. I look forward to the day my promises will be fulfilled with an eternal companion, a family sealed together, and living with the Lord for eternity.
