Hi I'm Sue

I'm a dog walker, a wife and mother of four, a rugby league tragic and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married with four adult children and two dogs. I am a plain language advocate. I work for a training business where we help people to write documents in language that is easily understood by all people regardless of their education or socio economic group. This year I spoke at the International Plain Language Conference in Stockholm about the use of plain language in emergency warnings during our floods and cyclone last summer. I love walking my dogs, hanging out with my family and eating Thai food in front of the Friday night football.(Brisbane Broncos ofcourse!)

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church when I was 19 and studying at university. My life has been better and richer and fuller since I made that decision. One of the things I love about the gospel is the help it has been to me as a parent. Parenting is scary stuff, but with the gospel teachings I have never felt alone and I have not been riddled with worry. I always knew I could pray and read the scriptures for answers to any problems i was wrestling with as a parent. Many times i have been prompted to say something or act in a way that I wouldn't have thought of myself and it ended up the best way to handle a situation. I know this was the holy ghost prompting me with answers to my prayers.

How I live my faith

Over the years I have spent alot of time working in our youth programs, this is my favourite part of the Church. I love to be with the teenagers as they explore their sense of humour, plan their future and make choices that will have a long lasting affect. Their energy and optimism is contagious. Having four young adult children means we have rollicking dinner time conversations when we all get together. I love how they can think creatively and often in a more abstract way but also full of faith and believing.
