Hi I'm Susan Root

I'm a 5th generation Arizonan. I work at a high school and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a daughter, a sister, a daddy's girl, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, an aunt, a great aunt and a friend. I love to sew and quilt especially with my sewing and quilting buddies! I love to travel and hope to some day travel to every state in the United States along with cruising my way around the world! I truly enjoy being with my family...family dinners, reunions any time we can get together is great with me! I live in Arizona but would love to move to Southen Utah. I love southern Utah! The red rocks and beautiful lanscapes just make me happy! I would move to Northern Utah but it snows too much there and my husband does not want to live in snow!

Why I am a Mormon

I have a been a Mormon all my life! My parents were raised in non-active families but considered themselves Mormon's if someone asked what religion they were. They became active when my oldest brother was fpur years old and have been examples of true disciples of Jesus Christ ever since. There was a time in my life that I had to decide what I truly believed and what direction I wanted my life to take. I chose to follow what I had been taught...to follow the commandments...to follow the teachings of the Savior and remain a Mormon. I know that God lives, that he loves me and knows who I am! I know that through the atonement of my Savior I will be able to return to live with God. I know that through the sealing power of our Heavenly Father that my family will be together forever! That brings me great joy! I know that the Lord restored his church in this dispensation of time through the Prophet Joseph Smth. I know the Book of Mormon is true and if I live the teachings found in the book I will become closer to my Savior and have a happy life. I know that God has a prophet on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson. And through His prophet, as in times of old, reveals what He wants us, as a world, to do in order to be happy and return to live with him.

How I live my faith

For the past two years I have been the president of the women's organizatoin in our ward. My duties have been to help these women become closer to Christ, increase their faith in his plan for them and become more self-reliant. It is my responsibility to see that gospel centered lessons are given each Sunday. Lessons that will inspire and uplift those who attend our Sunday meetings..inspire them to pattern their lives after the Savior and help them teach their children to do the same. Because our Heavenly Father cares fo each and every one of us...He has asked us to care for one another. We do this by being assigned several women in our ward to "watch over". Visiting them in their homes at least once a week, as well as at church, checking on their spiritual and temporal well being. I enjoy this very much! I have made woderful friends...friends that I will have forever!
