Hi I'm Susan

I grew up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I joined the LDS church when I was 27. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of 5, a grandmother of 16 and a great-grandmother of 2. I love spending time with my grandchildren. We call it "Gramma Days". I enjoy crafting, sewing, baking, reading, hanging out at the beach,swimming and paddle-boarding. I also enjoy doing family history research.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 27, not religious at the time and not knowing anything about the Mormon Church, two LDS missionaries knocked on my door. Over time they taught me about the restored church of Jesus Christ and invited me to join. They told me that I could receive my own personal revelation from God through the Holy Ghost that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the one true church on earth, restored by the prophet, Joseph Smith and that the Book of Mormon is the true word of God written by ancient prophets just as the bible had been, and translated through the power of God by Joseph Smith. I decided that if there was even the slightest chance that this was true and that even I could receive a revelation of the truthfulness of it, it was worth putting all the effort I had into praying to God to ask Him to let me know of it was true. After diligently investigating the church and praying to God, I did receive a marvelous and wonderful spiritual experience that testified to me that these things are true. I have now been a member of the church for 39 years and as I live the gospel every day, I can see the hand of God working in the world and in my life. I have been greatly blessed and even through afflictions, I have seen the blessings that come from overcoming adversity.

How I live my faith

In our church I have taught children's classes and have been president of that organization. I have taught in the woman's group and have been president of that organization. I have been a Cub Scout leader for the church Pack. I am preparing to serve a one year mission for the church with my Husband.
