‘Peanuts’ Creator Charles Schulz’s Unexpected LDS Connection

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

 

The LDS daughter of famous Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz was recently interviewed by LDS Living. Below is an excerpt from that interview.

Though disenchanted with the Mormon faith, Schulz never withheld his support from his daughter.

“He wrote me letters on my mission and he’d send me funny pictures of comics and Snoopy out tracting, stuff like that,” Johnson says. “He stood outside the temple and waited for me when it was freezing and soggy. He spoke at my mission farewell. He was just there for me every step of the way.”

In many of his letters and conversations with his daughter, Charles Schulz was sure to share his praise and love. “He told me, ‘I’m so proud of you. I tell everyone about you and how you’re working hard for the Lord,’” Johnson says.

“Many of the letters I received from him on my mission were filled with scriptures and advice, telling me how God knows my heart,” she continues. “He just wrote beautiful things. The only Christmas I was gone, he said, ‘Don’t be sad that we’re away from each other; let us rejoice in our love of Christ.’”
