Hi I'm Suna Choi

I was born in Korea. My family immigrated here in the United States of America when I was 13 years old. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a mom with 5 children and a wife. I like to run in the morning. I like to cook and share it with others. I enjoy spending time with my family. As a family, we like out doors. We like to go fishing, hiking, camping. Especially playing hide and go seek at night. We're the Choi family. We're Korean American. My children have born in Utah. We've lived in Arizona for a little over a year.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in Buddhist family. As young as I could remember I went to the Buddhist temple with my mom. I grew up listening to my mom recitaling Buddhist prayer. I always believed in the supreme being. I searched for truth. When I entered the elementary school as a first grade in Korea, I took bus and attended local church meetings. I went to the baptist church, presbyterian, and attended several other religions. One day I got the book of mormon, I decided to read it. I was 13 at the time and I didn't know what it was saying. So I decided to pray about it. Then immediately I heard a voice saying, "This is true words of Christ". From then on I knew the church was true. This is the only church with the book of mormon. And I knew if this book is true then this church must be true. I got baptised a year later when my father gave a permission when I was 14. Then I went on a mission to Seoul Korea Mission. I enjoyed every minute of it. After I returned home, I continued my education at the University of Utah. At the end of my senior year in college, I had a strong feeling that I should go to Korea. I obeyed that feeling and went to Korea and found my husband. We got married and sealed in the temple for eternity. We now have 5 children. For me, being a mormon is such a great blessing because my family is a fruit of my religion.

How I live my faith

As a family we like to go to church. We like activities that church holds such as boy scouts, activities for womenhood, activities for a family like family home evenings. We pray in the morning to start the day and we end it with prayer. Having 7 family members is convienent because we each have a day assign to pray. That way even our 3 year old girl gets a chance to offer a family prayer. Each day we encourage each other to be a good citizen by doing at least 1 nice thing for others. And we share that at the end of the day what each person did that day. If one of us had a bad day or was hurt by others, we focus it on how we can become a better person by forgiving or looking at it eternal perspective. We know that everything we experience here is for our growth and for our own good of we let it. The church program help our family to get closer to each other and reach out to people as a family.
