Hi I'm Sue

I'm a Mormon! I live in the Pocono Mountains in northeastern PA.

About Me

I'm 63 years old and live in the village of Promised Land in the Pocono Mountains. Lake Wallenpaupack is 15 minutes from my home and I'm only one mile from Promised Land State Park. It's a lush and beautiful place with good fishing and lots of wildlife . . . Darryl the bear walks through my yard occasionally and deer bed in my yard some evenings. It's a beautiful place to live. Only trouble is any Temple is at least 2-1/2 hours away. My Ward is 45 minutes from my house. My photograph is old, probably eight years or so, but I like this one. I'm a lot fluffier now.

Why I am a Mormon

When I first talked to the missionaries at a friend's house, I was interested in what they had to say. When I had the first lesson I knew without a doubt I had finally found Heavenly Father's true church. I felt right away that I had finally come home! I had been "shopping" for a church that made sense and had old fashioned values and I found it . . . it found me. I am forever thankful for my friends who cared enough about me and my family to invite us to dinner . . . and that the missionaries were so happy to talk to me.

How I live my faith

I'm second counselor in the Relief Society Presidency, on the Preparedness Committee also. I am secretary for the local Greene-Dreher Historical Society which covers parts of Pike and Wayne Counties. I help out where I can and love my callings. I just try to live righteously and be a good example.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

The Holy Bible, King James version, testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ. The Bible is wonderful scripture. My mother told me to read it like any other book and I have. It tells me of the prophets of old and of Jesus' birth and his life. I love it! Show more Show less
