Hi I'm Charlene

I am a mother to seven wonderful children. I have been happily married for 25 years and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My whole live revolves around my husband and my children. We have four boys and three girls. I spend my days helping, teaching and training them. I am amazed at how wonderful and challenging it is to be a parent. My greatest joys come as I see my children learn, grow and develop into stronger characters and individuals. My children are involved in church, scouting, academics, athletics, music and dance. It makes for a busy household. My husband and I also try to teach them to work hard and give service to others. I enjoy spending time with my husband. We often read books together and discuss them. I enjoy music; I play the piano and the organ, and I sing in the ward choir. I also enjoy reading and working out at the gym. I like to volunteer at the school when I have time. I enjoy getting together with friends and extended family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it gives purpose and direction for my life. I understand who I am and what my potential is. Because I am a Mormon, I know that being a mother is really a "calling" from God. I know He wants me to be successful and He will help me as I seek His help. I am able to see that the trails and challenges I have been given are for my own good. Through the scriptures and the words of the prophets, I can gain inspiration and help that is necessary to navigate through life.

How I live my faith

I have been involved in the Relief Society organization of the Church for the past 11 years. I have taught many lessons, helped with service projects,
