Hi I'm Marlene Jacobson

I am a wife plus a mom to 4 children. I love taking care of my family and watching them grow. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mother of four children and I am at home with them everyday. I feel so blessed to teach them and spend time with them. I also like to go camping and travel with my family. One of my favorite places to go is the Oregon Coast. I also enjoy reading about all kinds of things and cooking.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I have had many friends ask me all kinds of questions about my church which have caused me to study and reflect on the beliefs I have been taught. This was a great time for me to get on my knees and pray for the answers I needed. I have felt the Promtings of the Spirit as I read the scriptures and go to church. I have prayed for truth and have received an answer. I then had a great desire to go on a mission for 18 months and share the truths of the Gospel of Jesus Christ that I know to be true. I am so happy to be a Mormon. The gospel knowledge blesses me and my family everyday.

How I live my faith

I have taught the youth and children in our church on Sundays for many years. I am inspired by how strong and good they are. They help me to be a better person every week as I listen to them tell about the things they are doing each day in their families or in their neighborhoods. I am grateful for the opportunities to serve others and the happiness it brings to me. I love my Savior Jesus Christ. Because of this I am able to think of others as he did besides myself. I am a Webelos Leader in the Boy Scouts and am excited to explore and learn with them.
