Hi I'm Susan

I am a convert and loving it. I am happily married, have 8 children and 11 1/2 grandchildren. "I am a Mormon"

About Me

I am the oldest of 4 children. I spend much of my free time working on Family History, making quilts , and spending time with my family. I love the outdoors and most of all the fall when all the leaves change. I am the mom of 4 Boys and 4 Girls. One of which has left this earth and waiting for me in Heaven. I currently have 11 grandchildren and expecting # 12 in the Fall. I am blessed to have most of my children living around me. For 12 years I and my husband were foster parents in Utah and blessed to have placed in our home, 82 children, 2 of which we adopted. I recently granduated from college with a degree in Family Studies and a minor in Health Promotions. After moving to Texas I was able to begin my career as a clinic manager, I love working in the medical field. When I was in Junior High in Campbell California I was awarded the Presidential Physicial Fitness Award. I wish I still had that much energy to chase after all my grandchildren. Ha Ha, I have recently lost my mom to cancer. She taught me many useful skills which I use daily. I miss her terribly but know without a doubt that we will see each other again. I am also at peace that she and Daddy are together again in the spirit world. The most wonderful recent experience, and after waiting patiently for 20 years, my husband recently converted and we are excited about being sealed next year for time and all eternity. Thank you Father!

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of the LDS church has been the greatest gift I have ever received, As a young child I had been raised in a christian church but stopped attending as a teenager. As I grew into adulthood I realized that I missed my relationship with God and starting seeking a church to attend. I believe that Heavenly Father knew my desires and sent to me a wonderful man, who also happened to be my boss at the time, to open up the door for what would become the most wonderful gift and conversion that I could have ever imagined. I converted 34 years ago and every day has been a blessing. Not once in all this time have I ever regretted going into the waters of baptism and becoming a member of Christ,s church. I love the relationship I have with my church family. I love knowing that my family is eternal. I love taking the Sacrament each week knowing that through the sacrifice of my savior Jesus Christ my sins are washed clean. I am a Morman becasue I have peace in my life and even though I go through trials and tribulations as all of God,s childen do I know I do not go through them alone. I love sitting each Sabbath day elbow to elbow during our Sacrament services with grandchildren climbing all over me and giving me kisses and hugs. What better life is there than that? I am a Mormon becasue my Father in Heaven loved me that much.

How I live my faith

I love the relationship that I have with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I enjoy my moments with them through prayer. I see myself growing daily. I know that my Father in Heaven loves me becasuse of all of my blessings and the trials he gives to me to help me to grow. I love to kneel beside my husband to pray in the evening. Even though he is a new convert, I learn from him everyday and it is like becoming a new member all over again. I think that I am being the best that I can and then out of the blue I am pushed just a little further with new trials and then after the trials I am even stronger. I was once as a child and was taught as a child and now I am an adult and still love to learn as a child. One of the greatest tools for the growth of my gospel bank has been to be a Sunday School teacher. Studying the lessons have been so educational. I know that the lessons that I learn were for my spiritial growth. I meet new sisters weekly and love to particpate in our womens group. Most recently I have been asked to lead the music during our Sacrament services. I still have so much to learn about leading music. I look forward to visiting my assigned sisters each month. I am not by far the best visiting teacher but I feel spiritually uplifted from those I visit. Most of all I belive that I am truely a daughter of God and so glad that he loves me.
