Hi I'm Jalene

I love to travel, I love to read, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a single mother with two lovely daughters that mean the world to me! I have a Bachelors degree in elementary education and have enjoyed teaching for a few years now. I love traveling and hope to see much more of the world and my own country! I also love to read and try to do so as much as possible. I really enjoy outdoor activities as well, such as hiking, camping, fishing, boating, skiing etc.

Why I am a Mormon

Being raised in the church, I have always had an example of it in my life, but I was by no means perfect. I had many struggles that led me to where I am at today. Through much prayer and diligently reading the scriptures I was blessed with a strong and unwavering testimony. So, I can truly say that I am a Mormon because I solidly believe in the principles the Gospel teaches. I know that these things are true. I have no doubt that God lives and his son Jesus Christ sacrificed for us. I know the Book of Mormon is true and rejoice in my family and all life has to offer!

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is exactly that - LIVING it! It is something I strive to do all the time, not just on Sundays. From reading scriptures daily, family and personal prayer, family home evenings, and church activities, it is a lifestyle that affects things I do and choices I make every day and it has enriched my life as well! One of my favorite things to do is to work in the young women program. They are our future leaders, workers, mothers and I am always amazed by their beautiful strong testimonies. I get to do service projects with them and teach them lessons on Sunday. Their input and knowledge is so wonderful that often I will learn from them just as much as they are learning from me. This calling has also taught me how to acquire a better relationship with my own children. After all, the youth are our future.
