CTR Ring Shop.com Blog!

My name is Brandon and I am the owner of CTR Ring Shop.com, a website that sells CTR rings. I created this blog because in the process of selling CTR rings, I had the opportunity hear so many inspiring CTR ring related stories. I figured there are enough Latter-day Saints with uplifting stories that could inspire so many others, as they have me. Through these stories, we can truly learn what CTR means. Feel free to share your story and check back often, as a new story will be posted as often as often as possible! Enjoy!


New York Mormon

My name is Susan Fowler and I guess you could say I'm a New York Mormon.

I've always considered myself blessed because I have always known that there was a loving God and with that knowledge came also the sure feeling that there must be a path, a way that was planned for me to know this God.

I spent most of my life as a seeker. I wanted to find that path.

As a child I was brought up by my mother to be a member of a certain church. I followed that teaching although I knew in my heart it was not the right one. When I was old enough to make my own decisions I left that church and set out on my quest.

It was a journey of many years that led my through the full spectrum of religious beliefs and value systems. I usually tell people that I have "auditioned" as many churches, ashrams, synagogues, mosques and temples as I could find. I have been methodized and calvinated. I have danced with the krishnas and chanted with the buddhists. I have quaked and shaked but drew the line at donning a veil.

In all those many trials and errors I never felt that I had found my God. I NEVER felt the desire to join these groups; I never felt the Spirit.

I guess the New York part of me required that I keep going and trying to see for myself; and to reserve commitment until I had found the absolute truth.

I KNEW that the path was there somewhere and it was my desire, my duty to myself and my God to find it.

AND I DID. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

I love my CTR ring because it is symbol of my quest and the great reward that Heavenly Father has given me.
