Hi I'm Sue Robinson

I grew up in the western United States. I have raised a family and taught elementary school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read! I ALWAYS have a book, or two, (ebook, audio book, or paper) with me. My favorite genre is Historical Fiction because I love to learn and a good story is like the sugar that helps the medicine go down. I focus on expanding my reading choices to various other genre including some non-fiction. I began college at age 39 after the death of my first husband. I had three children to support and raise so it was a natural choice for me to prepare to teach school. Over the years I loved teaching Special Education, Kindergarten, first and second grade students. I am grateful that through my calling as a nursery leader at church I learned to love other people's children! Working with children has brought a lot of joy to my life!

Why I am a Mormon

As a young child, my family was not active in the Church. When I was nine years old, my Grandparents made it possible for me to be baptized. I developed a great desire to attend Church. At my request, my parents began to "deliver" my siblings and I to the neighborhood church. I had found a home! I felt loved and appreciated and loved the singing and the lessons about My Savior. I felt the Spirit of the Holy Ghost when I attended Church! After some time my mother began attending Church with us. After a few years my father also joined and we became an active family. What a joy that has been. My testimony of the truthfulness of the Gospel was developed slowly over time. It was like adding oil to a lamp drop by drop over time. Each time I prayed, read my scriptures, attended meetings, offered service to others, I added a drop of faith and love to that testimony lamp. When I was a teenager I attended a fireside about the Prophet Joseph Smith. I remember thinking to myself how hard to believe was his story of the First Vision. But in a moment of clarity, my next thought was, "But I do believe it with all my heart!" My testimony has grown continuously from that point. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ know me personally -- my strengths and weaknesses -- and love me still. Many times throughout my lifetime, I have felt promptings and inspiration from the Holy Ghost and I know that He leads me along. I walk by faith that is stronger than sight! When I follow that "nudging" from the Spirit, I am always happy and feel that my life and my character have been made better! Through the power of Our Savior's Atonement, I know that my weakness will be covered with His mercy and in the end I will have become all that he wants me to be.

How I live my faith

I truly love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Through my learning and study of the scriptures, participation in church classes, and service in various callings throughout my life, I have developed a set of personal values and eternal knowledge that guides and directs my daily life. I believe in loving, serving and respecting all people! In addition to my love of learning, I have a love of teaching. Over the years I have taught in a wide variety of settings: Red Cross swimming lessons to children, 4-H cooking and crocheting lessons to youth, as well as my work teaching in the schools. But most especially rewarding has been my teaching of classes in the Church to children, youth and adults. You can't imagine the excitement and satisfaction of watching the process of people learning!
