Hi I'm Carlene

I have lived in Indiana my whole life.

About Me

I am a mother of 5, 1 boy and 4 girls. I have 9 grandchildren and 3 more on the way. I love music and singing. I also love going to antique and junk stores. As my husband approaches retirement in a few years I am looking forward to spending winters in a warmer climate.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church at the age of 13. When the missionaries came to our home, I knew right away what they were teaching us was true. Even at that young age I felt the spirit. Many of the questions that I had about God were answered and it just felt right. Those feelings have continued to grow and I have never doubted the truthfulness of the gospel. It has given me a direction and a desire to be better. The Lord has blessed me in so many ways. I have a family that brings me great joy and happiness. I know that my Heavenly Father knows me and loves me and I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I feel truly blessed to have been able to hear the message that the missionaries brought into our home so many years ago.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church I have had many opportunities to serve in various positions. Many of those have been doing things that were out of my comfort zone and required me to grow in ways I never thought I would. I have worked with the little children, the youth and the adults. Each of these positions has been an opportunity for growth. I feel the Lord knows me much better than I know myself. I would have been content with just sitting on the sidelines, but He knew that I would learn and grow best by serving and doing. At the present time I am the choir director for our congregation.
