Hi I'm Susan

I was born in Kansas, moved to Montana. I graduated from college. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I met my future husband while I was in college getting a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. We were married when we both had spring break. After I graduated and had our first child, I went to work as a Registered Nurse. I stopped working outside my home after we took in my grandmother. We were able to take care of her until she passed away. It was a great learning experience as we later took in my father-in-law to care for after he became ill. We have had 11 children, 4 are now married and we have 10 grandchildren. I love to read, sew and watch my children achieve.

Why I am a Mormon

I was going to college when I first learned about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (Mormons). When I came to understand that God the Father was separate from His Son, Jesus Christ and that they were separate from the Holy Ghost, then the Holy Bible made sense. I had been raised as a Baptist, and even though I went to church every Sunday, I had many questions. In college, my friends and I went to each others' churches. I realized I was looking for answers, I couldn't seem to find them. They were answered when I heard the discussions of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is simple. I was baptized many years ago and met my husband after that (in church, of course). I still have a strong testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this day. I love to learn, to serve and help others and enjoy the company of others who want to learn, too.

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in both my community and ward. The latest was in the Cub Scouting organization of the Boy Scouts. I was Pack Committee Chair and also helped as a leader of the Committee break out sessions at Roundtables (monthly training for all volunteers in Scouting Districts). I have also helped with the Boys Scouts as a Troop Committee Chair during the time that my four sons became Eagle Scouts. I enjoy doing whatever is needed as I have the idea that "many hands make light the work" and try to share that idea with others as we all serve to help each other. Even tough I have helped lately with the scouting, I have been involved in the young woman organizations as a camp director. My children are also involved in school and area sports. I do what I can to help each succeed in their endeavors. I have homeschooled my children, but also had them in government (public) and private schools and have contributed to each of the organizations whenever I can. I love to be in Church every Sunday and enjoy the energy and spirits of those around me.
