Hi I'm Susan K. Weckesser

I'm a wife & mom of 4 kiddos.I'm a daughter,a sister who is an artist, teacher, author,& Albertan business owner. I am Mormon.

About Me

I am a momma of four kiddos; two boys and two girls. They all keep me busy. My husband has been a fireman for the last 23 years so that always adds excitement. I am an artist, designer, writer, and small business owner. I design and produce items such stamps, papers, fabrics, etc. I also write articles for magazine and do work for children's books. I love painting, and gardening. Really, I live being outside and taking in all the beauty that is around me . I really love all the sweet and simple things!! I love hiking into the mountains and sitting among the wildflower with my easel and then I just paint. Yes, we are a camping & hiking family!

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because when I was 9 years old the missionaries knocked at our door. I had always felt in my heart that something was missing. All my other friends went to church. I often watched them drive away on Sunday's in their fancy clothes and then I would turn to my mom and ask why we couldn't go. So, the day the missionaries knocked on our door I was so excited! Two weeks later my Mom called me at my Dad's office while I was doing my Saturday job of cleaning his office. Mom said the missionaries asked if we wanted to be baptized and she wanted to know what I thought. She said it was up to me! I was SO excited! This is what I had wanted, so of course I said yes!!! That afternoon my mother and I were baptized. It filled me with such joy! I am so grateful for the peace , security and love that the gospel surrounds me with. That peace is ALWAYS with me. What a amazing blessing!!

How I live my faith

Any opportunity possible we make sure that we help. Be it in church or in the community we love to help. I have had so many opportunities through church , be it painting and crafting classes with the youth, or helping the community when there are natural problems, such as the flood that Alberta received a couple years ago. I have also been blessed because I started the Christmas Love Campaign through my company Susan K. Weckesser Inc. and through that yearly event I have seen so many hearts touched. People reaching out to other people in love. Strangers caring for strangers. Faith is not just a Sunday thing. It is a every moment of every day thing. It fills your heart and you just do it. I love my callings. To be able to visit teach or help someone and make them smile. What an amazing blessing!
