Hi I'm Sue

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am lucky to be married to an amazing and supportive husband and am the mother of 3 remarkable daughters ranging in age from elementary school to college. I enjoy my professional career and my husband changes lives by teaching middle school. Our daughters stay busy with a variety of sports, music and school activities. Like most families, we are busy--but our greatest joy is spending time together: hiking, biking, traveling, playing games or trying to outdo each other on MarioKart! I love living in the Pacific Northwest and especially love trail running in the woods near my home.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is the gospel of Jesus Christ and following His teachings brings me joy and happiness. As I try to follow my Savior, I become a better person. I am so grateful for His atonement which covers my sins and my sadness. I know that God still speaks to us today, that we have a prophet on earth. I am grateful for the word of God that we have both in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon and for the guidance I receive through those scriptures that guides my life personally and helps me to be a better mother. I am grateful for the knowledge that my family can be together forever, and that knowledge motivates me to build those bonds even stronger right now.

How I live my faith

Right now I have the remarkable opportunity to work with the young women ages 12-18 and their leaders in several of our congregations. I help to organize activities and have opportunities to teach, but I find that I learn so much more from them. They build my faith and make me want to be better and have a closer relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ. I also try to live my faith in my relationships with everyone I come in contact with. I think the best way to live my faith is by being kind and willing to serve others whenever needed, just as Christ did. I find that it can be hard to do that all the time, and am grateful for the opportunity to repent and recommit to that every day.
