Hi I'm Suzanne Bikman

I am the oldest of eight. I grew up in Texas. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am serving in the California Redlands mission. I was a student, studying at BYU, trying to figure out what to major in, and how to get through classes stress free for two semesters before I came out here. I am a long way from home. Texas. I love it there. I love my family. I have five little brothers and two little sisters. I love music, and I love to sing. Art is something that I dabble with. I love being a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I am an eighth generation member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. In 1837 my great great great great grandparents were baptized in England. They followed the call to journey to Utah and join the other members of the church. This story greatly helps my faith. It strengthens me to know that for so long my family has believed in this church. Having been taught and raised in a good strong home with faithful parents I have always felt like I knew that the church is true. I read the Book of Mormon the whole way through for the first time when I was ten years old. I prayed to Heavenly Father to know if it was true and I knew for myself that it is.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through constantly helping and looking for opportunities to help others. In church I am currently serving in the sunday school for the children. I love being in there and helping them. They have such sweet spirits and are so susceptible to learning the gospel and feeling the spirit.
