Hi I'm Arlene

I was born and raised in London, England, but moved to America. I am a Mormon, serving a mission at one of the Mormon Temples.

About Me

I am a grandmother. I went to college late in life, but managed to teach for 12 years before retiring at age 66. I love to read and if I can read the first page I can read the whole book. I love to travel and have discovered cruises thanks to very good friends that made me go. I love the sea.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to love the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I became a member in my late teens and have spent my life living and testing the principles that it teaches and have never been disappointed. I know that I have a Father in Heaven that loves me unconditionally. I know that the Savior took upon himself my sins and all the pain that I might experience during my life time, so that when life gets tough I know that He knows how I feel and can therefore give me comfort. Joseph Smith really is a modern day prophet that saw Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and was called to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the earth in these latter days. The Book of Mormon really is another testament of Jesus Christ and reading the scriptures can bring peace into your heart.

How I live my faith

At the moment I am serving in one of our temples. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints for nearly 50 years. I have served in many capacities, from teaching children to teenagers to adults. I have learned how to organize dinners and activities for groups of over 200 people.
