I felt like I hit the Lottery when I finally got into her Religion class at BYU over 25 years ago after 2 failed attempts. Worth every moment - It lit a fire inside to want to absorb more. I still remember some of the strange, yet true details of our church history. Would LOVE to hear her speak at a Womens conference or Time Out.

Susan Black is a rare gem. I enjoy anything she writes. I especially love her loyalty to the Prophet Joseph Smith. That is a breath of fresh air in the world.

Susan & Harvey are such all-around wonderful people - it was fun to get a sense of that from the article. Thanks!

She has been a delight in Education week as well. You want to take it all in and write notes on every word! She is a role model in her talent and gift to remember so much. That is the sign of a good teacher and imparts her knowledge wherever she goes.

Her book about the Nauvoo pioneers is also a very enlightening work, as well as helpful. Thank you Sister Easton-Black for all you have done.

Clearly a knowledgeable professor, but I find I have to stick to her written material. Is her voice as sing-song in person as it is when she talks into a camera? Does she constantly abuse the future tense? "Thomas Jefferson will write the Declaration of Independence in 1776."

She's good; she could be better.
