Hi I'm Sister Hunter

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a biochemist. I was previously a radio/tv news journalist. I enjoy hiking, reading and Star Trek Next Generation.:) My husband is an ObGyn. We love to travel and learn about our beautiful Universe. My favorite topics of discussion: quantum physics, physics, chemistry, biochemistry and of course.... Being a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I searched for the truth at a young age. I converted, on my own at age 12 years old in New York, after the missionaries knocked on our door and my dear Mom said if I wanted to learn about the Mormons, from two clean cut nice young men, that was fine by her. A few years later she herself converted also. Reading the Book Of Mormon, particularly, Alma 37:37-44, really influenced me and I felt the Holy Ghost and knew the following Sunday as I attended Church with the Elders, that I wanted to be baptized into the Lord Jesus Christ's Church. Since then, I feel, I have had a very blessed, happy life. There will always be trials in life, but I feel better equipped to deal with them with God and Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost as my companions. I feel the Church gave myself, my brother, sister (they also converted) and Mom meaning to our lives and has brought and continues to bring great peace of mind and joy to our lives.

How I live my faith

I enjoy my callings in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been a Seminary Teacher, which is a youth teacher for ages 14-18. We instruct in various scriptures and help inspire youth to have self-esteem and confidence. I love teaching the younger children and have done so for many years in the organization we call Primary. It is for children ages 3-11 years. I currently hold a calling, or volunteer position in my Church as genealogy and Temple coordinator. We find out our family trees and write family histories. It is a wonderful way to get to know your heritage. You can visit any Mormon Genealogy center, or call a local Ward (Church) building to find out one near you. The Temple holds special meaning to Mormons because, like the Jews of old (my ancestors) we worship God and especially today, Jesus Christ as our Savior and make sacred covenants to love others, serve others and better ourselves as Children of God.
