Hi I'm Sue

I'm a baby boomer with an empty nest. I grew up in Kansas and love the Northwest. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love my family. My husband and I have four children and are enjoying this stage of expanding family as we welcome the marriages of the children and the births of sweet grandchildren. I enjoy the landscapes for the American West. I like to read and travel. I like to grow food in the garden. Nothing tastes better than when it is fresh out of the garden.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up "in the church." My parents were dedicated members of the church and active in community interests. They taught me important principles and made sure that I was baptized. I choose to continue to be a member of the church because the Book of Mormon and Doctrine and Covenants give me a greater perspective and understanding of the teachings of the Savior. The Latter day scriptures have been key to my spiritual growth. Because of the teachings of the church I understand that we have a Heavenly Father who loves each of his children and has provided a way for us to grow and learn in a mortal body. I know he has a plan for us to become like He is and that Jesus Christ is fundamental to that plan. I love the feeling I get when I focus my life on trying to be like Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in the way I treat other people. I try to see other people as I believe Jesus would see them, with loving kindness. I'm not perfect at that, but that is my intention. I study the scriptures as I try to understand how to live my life. I serve in the church, as I am invited to serve. I have had opportunities to teach adults, children and youth. I have been able to serve in a Family History Center helping people who are trying to explore their ancestry. I have had leadership opportunities to work with other women and have been able to serve in the temple. These opportunities have contributed to my personal growth. I would not have imagined timid me conducting a meeting or teaching adults.
