Hi I'm Susannah U.

I am from Utah and am love anything to do with the outdoors. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission in Washington.

About Me

I love life and love living it! I enjoy trying new things and making the most of my time. I especially enjoy the outdoors - hiking, biking, swimming, camping, boating, snow and water skiing, tennis, running, watching the sunset and stargazing. I am currently in college and needless to say I am studying Exercise and Sport Science. I also enjoy playing the piano and have taught piano lessons for the past 2 years. During the summer I have a part time job as a Certified Pool Operator where I do the maintenance and upkeep of swimming pools. I also enjoy school and the college experience. I also spend a lot of time with my friends and family. I am a people person and have a good time getting to know others better.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know the gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true. The Spirit has testified to me that it is true. I know God loves me and all of His children. The commandments He has given us are because He loves us and wants us to be able to return to Him. As I live the commandments, I can feel the love of God for me. I also feel God's love for me through His creations, specifically nature. I love the peace and joy I obtain through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The knowledge I have gained through Christ's gospel brings such peace and security to me. I know that to Book of Mormon is a true book of God and the prophet Joseph Smith translated it. I know Thomas S. Monson is our true living prophet on earth today. I know that it is only through Jesus Christ that we can return to live with Heavenly Father. I know Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. He atoned for my sins and the sins of the world. Thorough Christ we can become perfect and be forgiven of all our wrong doings in life. I know this church is true and am so blessed to be a part of it.

How I live my faith

I enjoy living my faith and am not afraid to do so. I love sharing my talents at church and helping others through my talents. For years, I have played the piano in church meetings. I have also taught children's church lessons and help them to better understand our beliefs. I enjoy teaching the children and watching their progression. I also enjoy actively participating in church activities. I just recently helped plan and organize a river trip for my church group. We had such a fun time river rafting and spending time with each other outside of church. I also enjoy visiting teaching where I visit a few women each month, get to know them and help them in any way possible. I have made many friends through visiting teaching. I am currently preparing to serve a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have been called to serve in Washington state in the United States. A mission for young women is 18 months. During those 18 months I will dedicate all my energy to the service of the Lord. I will be teaching, sharing the gospel and my testimony with those in my mission area. I am so excited to serve!
