Hi I'm Susan Anderson

I'm a college student, a dental assistant, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Susan and I love to be happy! Happiness to me is being around the people you love and doing the those things that make you smile. Luckily for me, I have a lot of things that make me smile. My favorite however, has to be my family. They are amazing! Most of them live in California, where I was born and raised, and I love it. I went to college for a year and then decided to take a break from my degree in order to serve an 18 month mission for my Savior, Jesus Christ. I am currently living in South Carolina, the good o'le south, where I spread the good news of his gospel every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true and I love it. I believe with all my heart that God is our Heavenly Father and that we are His children. As such, I know that He loves us very much and wants the best for us. He has given the gospel of Jesus Christ to help us to return to live with Him again someday and to be happy. This simple knowledge has blessed and changed my life so much. It has made me into the person I am today. I want others to have the chance to come to know God and His, Son Jesus Christ and to feel the peace that that knowledge brings in our lives. I am a Mormon because I wouldn't have it any other way.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by voluntarily serving a full time mission for my church. This means that I spend 18 months of my life, 7 days a week, focused completely on following Christ. I do this by serving others and teaching them about his gospel. This means that I do what I believe Jesus Christ would do if he were personally here. It's full time work, but its the best. I am showing my faith by following the example of Jesus Christ in my words and actions.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Susan Anderson
We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by following him. This means that we are keeping his commandments, some of which include: praying, reading our scriptures, and attending church. By following and trusting in Christ, our faith will grow. Show more Show less
