Baptism, Her Baby, and the Book on the Shelf: Maureen Sederberg

In The Book

Oct 21 2023 • 21 mins

Growing up on Long Island, New York in an Irish Catholic family, Maureen Sederberg went to Catholic schools, and from her family dinner conversations, learned to ask questions. As the years went by, she drifted away from religion, and into the fashion industry with her husband. It wasn’t until the birth of her first child, Samantha, that she felt the weight of responsibility to decide whether or not her baby would be baptized. She searched and searched, and as a last resort, pulled the Book of Mormon off the shelf.

Maureen first read the Book of Mormon in 1981, and was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1984.
