Hi I'm Susan H.

I'm a Mormon. Retired airline, world traveler, seeker of education and adventure, outside the box thinker and champion of family.

About Me

I'm mother to five children and step mother to one. I have faced divorce and remarriage. In our immediate family we have had two babies die at birth and have two children transgendering. I have had a brother murdered and another die early, an alcoholic. I have family members with severe chronic illness. I suffer from fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression. I have experienced a lot of the challenges that beset humanity, either myself or vicariously through others. I also have been greatly blessed. I've traveled the world, received a college education with a BA in Communications, had good health, lots of loved ones, close family relationships and multitudes of opportunities that give me all that I need to provide me with happiness and peace. My husband and I retired early and are now spending our time seeking simplicity, adventure, education and service. We live in an RV part time and do free house and pet sitting all over the world the rest of the time. We also serve our church and different charities wherever we go. We hope to spread the word about the wonderful website familysearch.org to as many people as possible. We love our life!!!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I love studying religion. I have studied all religions. I have visited shrines and temples and churches of all kinds all over the world. I have frequented church services, along with my children, many, many times, particularly living in the Bible Belt of Georgia. I feel a comaraderie with all honest seekers of God and loving each other. In this world, where evil is growing so much, I feel that the Godly and honest in heart everywhere should unite in good. Having my eyes wide open to what is out there, I willingly choose to be a Mormon because it offers me so very much more. To give this up would be to give up many, many things only to be found in this church. I have had it's truthfulness manifest to me multitudes of times in spirit and experience.

How I live my faith

My husband and I just completed a voluntary mission at the JBLM military base in Washington. We were a support system for over 200 military families who are members of our church. I have participated in every church program from my childhood till now and seen the effects of these programs and teachings on the lives of those who chose to follow the teachings and those who have not. I live my faith totally based on my love for Jesus Christ. He taught us to love God and serve Him with all our heart, mind and strength and to love others and serve them. I look at my fellowmen as my brothers and sisters and I'm constantly finding ways to serve others in any way that I see a need.
