Hi I'm Carlen

I'm a wife & mother of 6 children & I'm a Mormon. I was raised in a Mormon family of 7 children & family is very important to me.

About Me

I am a wife and mother of 6 wonderful children. I enjoy photography and spending time with my family. 

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ blesses my life every day. Its teachings help me to be a better person, a better wife, and a better mother. I know that if I follow its teachings, I can be with my family beyond this life and enjoy them eternally. I know that because I am not perfect--but learning and growing here on Earth--I need my Savior, Jesus Christ to help me return to my Heavenly Father. His atonement makes this possible. The Gospel brings me peace, hope, and a clear understanding of what my purpose is in life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the example set by Jesus Christ, of being kind, respectful, and compassionate. I try to serve others and lift the burdens of all of Gods children. I study the scriptures--both the Bible and the Book of Mormon--to learn more about the life of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I attend church weekly with my family. I also share the Gospel with my family and encourage my children to live good lives too. I try to share the joy that my faith brings to me with all that I come in contact with.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Our Father in Heaven is literally our Father and desires for us to develop and nurture a very personal relationship with Him. We have a direct and very real line of communication with him through prayer. Prayer is powerful and I have faith that when any person prays to Heavenly Father with a sincere heartfelt desire to communicate with him and faith, He will hear them and answer them with the tender response of a loving parent.
