Hi I'm Jalene

I grew up in Southern California. My husband I have been married for 27 years and have three children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I have raised three wonderful children. We live in Colorado where we really enjoy the outdoors, but not the snow so much. I like to mountain bike, hike, take photos, travel and read. I grew up in Southern California and love the ocean, which I miss very much, but I also really enjoy the mountains. I love music even though I can't play or sing a note. I graduated from college in social work, but ended up working as a legal secretary until I stopped 12 years ago to be a stay-at-home home which I love. I have been a member of the church my whole life and I can't imagine my life without it.

Why I am a Mormon

My testimony of Jesus Christ, His Atonement and His gospel gives me purpose in this life. Knowing that I am a daughter of God gives me the strength to continue through the bad times and good. I feel His love every day and know that He truly blesses me. The church gives our family a foundation to build on and to teach our children. I know who I am, why I am here, and where I am going. My life is filled with peace and I can't ask for anything more.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to follow God's commandments and being an example to those around me. I try to help others whenever possible. Given my many years as a member of the church, I have had the opportunity to serve in a lot different capacities. I especially enjoy working with and teaching the children. I recently worked in the nursery during sunday school and loved playing with and getting to know the toddlers.
