Hi I'm Charlene

I'm daughter, sister, wife, mother and grandmother. I'm a dental assitant and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mother and grandmother! It is not only the most challenging but most rewarding experience in life. Education is important to me and when my youngest was in high school I returned to college, those classes lead me to become a dental assistant. I love being able to help others and reach out into the community. It also gives me the opportunity to be a good example, not only to my family, but in the office. My husband and I enjoy early morning walks together (the dogs loves to come too). We are able to discuss that mornings scripture reading while enjoying the beauty of the earth. We love to be with our kids and grandkids - camping, going to the fair, or just hanging out.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into, and raised, in and LDS home where we were taught to follow Jesus. My testimony has come line upon line, and precept on precept. Faith, I think, has always been a part of my life. I remember moving three times while in second grade. The second school I attended I was the only 'Mormon' in my class and grade as far as I could tell. At times I felt lonely because others would laugh at me, but then somehow I always had the strength to stand alone even when it was hard. I continue to be an active member of the Church because I have found out for myself the teachings are true. I read and prayed about the Book of Mormon. I heeded the counsel and direction from the prophet. I proved the Lord by paying my tithing. And, I have not ceased praying. Today, the gospel is my sure foundation. It is a way of life. It gives me my conviction to do what is right and givs me perspective on life. It sets me free. I have experienced many tender mercies from the Lord; I have witnessed miracles and seen lives change.

How I live my faith

I love to serve and have the opportunity to visit other women each month. Our friendship has grown over the years and we are truly sisters. I also have had the opportunity to organize confrences for the youth, serve the children age 18 months- 11 years old, be with and organize activites for women both in the ward (congregations) and stake (several congregations combined). Each Christmas Eve day several families get together to feed the homeless men and women in our area. Some times we are able to gather useful items such as coats and blankets to take with us. We have taken our children for many years. What a wonderful experience it has been for us to share and teach. Now the kids are older and have families of their own, they are able to join us in a wonderful tradition.
