Hi I'm Charlene

I grew up a member of the church in a military family. I am a faithful daughter and love my Savior and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I live in Minnesota. I work at a Target store and run the receiving department. I love to read, eat, sing, be with my friends and family. I am married to my best friend Howard. We were married in the St Paul Minnesota Temple for time and all eternity 7 years ago! Howard joined the church in 2003 after being taught by the missionaries.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, first because I was born into a Mormon family. My parents joined the church before I was born in Fairbanks Alaska. I have choosen to continue to practice the faith because it has made me who I am. It answers all of lifes questions and makes me happy! I love everything the church teaches and know without a doubt its teachings and doctrines are true. Heavenly Father has answered my prayers and the Holy Ghost has reaffirmed time after time that this church and everything it teaches is true! Our Savior lives, he visited and taught Joseph Smith. He died and was ressurected for me! Because of Him I get the chance to repent and return to live with Heavenly Father, and my eternal family for all eternity! What an amazing blessing!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to set the proper example. To tell people what I believe and why. I do the things asked of me by my local church leaders and by our Prophet. I do those things to the best of my ability. If I am doing those things required of me my Heavenly Father blesses me. Living this faith takes work but the blessings that come by choosing to do this out weigh the work you put into it. I live my faith because I know its true and it makes me happy. The blessings that come from living the gospel are beyond explanation! Your family is blessed, your marriage is strengthened and life has meaning, you understand your life here on earth! The gospel of Jesus Christ makes people better! I know that because I watched the gospel bless and change my friend and now husband Howie!

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Our prophet today is Thomas S Monson! He is the man that stands at the head of the church under the direction of our Heavenly Father. He communicates with our Heavenly Father to know how to lead the church. He was called to that holy position by Heavenly Father, not by the members of the church. He is the only person on earth authorized to use all the keys of the priesthood! He is the leader and director of the church affairs today! I know he was called of God, directed by God and knows what God wants for his people! President Monson is a remarkable man that speaks with great love and power when he addresses us as members. He leads and guides this church and it is through him we can know and do the will of our Heavenly Father! Absolutely amazing! :) Show more Show less
