Hi I'm Suzanne

I'm an Arizonian and a big sister to 4 younger siblings. I love dancing, listening to and playing music, and being a Mormon!

About Me

I just recently finished my third semester of college. I really enjoyed my anatomy and physiology classes. I love learning about how the human body works and functions. I want to start studying elementary education and hopefully become an elementary teacher. I love little kiddos! I grew up in a family of 5. I have two younger sisters and two younger brothers. I love my family and enjoy spending time with them! I also love dancing. Dance was a major part of my life growing up. I was able to gain confidence and a taste for good music through dance. I love music and how powerful it can be in changing my mood from negative to positive. I also love to spend time with my boyfriend! He is always building me up and making me want to be a better person! I'm so grateful for all my friends growing up; they helped to make me the quirky, fun person I am today. I've also taught myself how to play guitar!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because living the gospel brings a happiness and understanding to my life that nothing else could fill. It is a wonderful and perfect gospel that allows everyone to know their true purpose in life. It is a gospel surrounded around families and how important it is to have families. I'm so grateful for my family and also for the knowledge that I can be with them forever. It makes me so happy to know that my future husband and children will be able to be sealed to me and that I can live with them and love them for time and all eternity. It gives life and life after death so much more meaning and importance. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true restored church. I know that Joseph Smith was a real prophet and that he saw the Father and the Son. I know that through the power of God The Book of Mormon was translated and translated perfectly. I know that if we read The Book of Mormon with a sincere heart we will be able to learn what our Heavenly Father needs us to know. I know that I am a child of God and that he knows and loves me. I know that my Heavenly Father hears and answers my prayers. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and I know that He atoned for the sins of all mankind. We can all be saved through his great, vicarious gift, if we just repent. I know that President Thomas S. Monson is our prophet on this earth today and that he was called of God. He leads our Church in truth and righteousness today. I love this gospel and I live it with all my heart, might, mind, and soul. This is truly a gospel of pure happiness and I wish for everyone to have the joy and peace that I have.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others! I volunteer at a food bank often and I also love serving the customers at my work. I work retail and I love having the customers leave feeling like they're needs were important to me. The best days at work are the days I can make others happy. On Sundays, I have the opportunity to teach 10 and 11 year old girls. They are so smart and teach me so much! I love planning out the lessons, because I know how much they appreciate me. Serving them is a great blessing. Just recently, I received my mission call to serve the people in Australia! I've never been more excited or felt so blessed to be given the opportunity to serve, love, and teach.
