Hi I'm Susan

I'm a Registered Nurse. I'm a missionary. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a registered nurse. I love to care for people and I love to help out my family. I am the only girl out of four brothers. I love to read, write books, cook, act, and rollerblade. One of my favorite things to do is write music and play it for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only church I have attended where I feel such closeness to my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. There is no better way to gain true conviction of something than to live it, and because I live my faith actively I can see the real results that come from following the teachings of Jesus Christ and following the words of the prophets. It just makes sense to me. It is hard work, but faith cannot be had without sacrifice.

How I live my faith

I really enjoy bringing the gospel to people through music. I am the music coordinator in my local ward. I direct music every sunday and each week I lead choir practice. I also like to write music about gospel principles with my friends. Serving as a missionary for the Church is one of the ways I have chosen to live my faith. If I can help bring one soul to our Father in Heaven, it will be worth every moment spent working in Denver, CO.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Susan
While serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints I have worked very hard to serve those who are NOT Mormon. Missionaries in the Colorado Denver North Mission spend 10 hours a week doing service with a promise to not preach while serving. The program is called "Just Serve." I have spent hours working in food banks, helping at second-hand clothing stores, mowing lawns, helping donation facilities for needy children, raking yards, singing in nursing homes, etc... All for people who are not Mormon. The whole point is that we are all children of God and He loves us all. Jesus Christ not only taught everyone, He also fed them and healed them. As a missionary I have been asked to represent Jesus Christ, and if I did not freely serve my fellow man then I would be a very bad representative of Him. I have seen the church help the needy who are not Mormon in many capacities. It is done on an individual basis and those in need have received financial assistance, financial advice, jobs, emotional support, and many other services from the local churches in their area. I have seen members of the church work together to help people they have never met before. Meals have been provided for several weeks to families suffering loss. Those families were not members of the church. Funerals have been planned, prepared , and conducted by the Relief Society for people who wanted nothing to do with the church but were merely in need. There is a lot of service! Show more Show less
