Hi I'm Charlene Durfee

I live in the middle of church history. I play the piano. I am a BYU Cougar and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very social person. I love having friends around me laughing and having fun so I love planning things so I can do just that. I love riding horses and have one of my own. I love reading books. My favorite at the moment is Name of the Wind or The Hobbit. I love music and listen to it 24/7. I play the piano, guitar and love to sing! I love animals and have four (a horse, dog, cat, and fish). I live on a farm in small town Hamilton Missouri. I go to school at BYU but am currently serving a church mission in Denver Colorado.

Why I am a Mormon

Why not? I was raised in the faith since I was little. I was baptized at 8 but didn't really gain a testimony till I was away at college living by myself. I realized that to me the gospel and my Savior was my world. I couldn't live without his atonement and his love. I can't even imagine what I would be without him.

How I live my faith

I work in the primary teaching helping my mom. I read my scriptures and say my prayers every morning and night. I also study Preach My Gospel and write in my journal. I attend church every Sunday (ALL THREE HOURS ;D). I do my best to help bring peace and happiness in my family. I attend the temple at least once a month. I bear testimony of my Savior Jesus Christ.
