Hi I'm Susanne

I am a Returned Missionary, I love serving the Lord, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.I come from a family of six with my parents divorced and my father is remarried. I have just returned from serving my mission for the Lord. I love the scriptures and I love to read and write stories. I love music and baking. I plan on continuing college. I still have no idea what I want to be yet. I am thinking about being an English major. I want to be a writer but I want a career that will be more steady. I love to serve people. It is something that I have always done. I love children and hope to have a family someday after I am married in the Temple. I always will be a member of this church because I have experienced a lot in my life, somethings I wish to forget but through this church and this gospel and these people I have drawn closer to my savior and felt his love stronger than ever before. I would encourage all to learn more about what we as members of the Church of Jesus Christ believe.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is what I believe. I have read the scriptures and I know they are true. My family is a true blessing to me they help me stand strong in the faith and never be ashamed of it. I was never truly converted until just recently when my sister challenged me to read the scriptures with her. It was a struggle at first but as time moved on I realized that I was enjoying it so much and every time I would read them I would get a feeling of peace and assurance that I had never felt before. I found myself flying ahead of her and reading nothing but my scriptures all day. I loved the stories and they pulled me in with the truth that I had searched for all my life.I bear you my testimony that I know that these things are true. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a true prophet and I believe that this is the only church with the fullness of the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ on the face of the earth today and I will never deny this truth because I know it.

How I live my faith

I have just recently returned from a mission for my church. I am still adjusting to normal life but I still love to serve others I am so grateful for the chance I had to serve the Lord and I look forward to using the things that I have learned. I look for opportunities to serve in everyplace that I can. I go to the Temple every week and church every week. I study my scriptures daily and am constantly trying to improve.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Susanne
Everything tells us that there is a God. The fact that we are here. The fact that we face problems in our lives. Why is the world the way it is? All the beauty and the things that are just priceless. A new born baby, the fact that we have families, friends, our personalities, our differences, our choices. All these things tell us that there is more out there. Just think of it. This is not the beginning or the end and all this is because we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and wants us to be happy. I testify that he exists and that he loves us and because of that we have been given a chance to progress through this life, even through the hard times. There is a scripture that I love in 2 Nephi 9:18 "...they who have endured the crosses of the world, and despised the shame of it, they shall inherit the kingdom of God, which was prepared for them from the foundation of the world, and their joy shall be full forever." I testify that God lives and that he loves us that that if we follow him that we will recieve a happiness, that we have never before known, in this life and the life to come. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

Susanne
We should have faith in Jesus Christ. He is the only way that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father again and we can put our trust in his Atonement, Sacrifice, to help us in all walks of life. We believe in Christ and he is the Head of this church and It is only through him that we may have eternal life with our families forever. Show more Show less
