Hi I'm Carlene Mortensen

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I'm 61 years old and I have a wonderful husband, seven children and 24 grandchildren. I love spending time with my family. Five of my children live nearby and I enjoy visiting with them and their children almost daily. I love crocheting and scrapbooking. I love having my family over for dinner, something that also happens several days a week.

Why I am a Mormon

 I joined the church when I was 16. The thing that caught my attention was the importance of families. I am an only child and was raised in a family that didn't go to church. My parents told me when I was old enough I could choose for myself. I love knowing that my family can be together forever. It is my greatest desire that MY family will someday be together forever. 

How I live my faith

 I love reading the Book of Mormon. It gives me faith to carry on each day. It teaches me so much about the world we are living in today. In the church I work with all the women in my area that are over 18. It is interesting to interact with such wonderful women. To hear their stories and share their dreams. I believe most of us want the same thing in our lives, to be happy and find peace. Being a Mormon helps me be happy and find peace.
