Hi I'm Marleen Van Laere

I joined the church when I was 18, the only one in my family. I am a single mom. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a psychotherapist and I worked al long time as a family counselor in a shelder. I mostly worked with the women and childeren. Now I work for the justice department and carry out alternative sanctios for offenders. I also train social workers and psychotherapists. I am very happy to be in the church, because as a single working mom, the church was very helpfull. I have seen a lot of unhappy situations in families because people neglect the commandments and have lost their sense of divine identity..

Why I am a Mormon

During the years I have been a member I have seen the blessings one receives

How I live my faith

At this moment my calling grants me the opportunity to work for the public affairs of the church. I have had a lot of callings of course but this calling makes it possible that I can talk about about our beliefs and our church activities. I discoverd the gospell all over by looking at it from a different perspective! What I like to do most is to give guided tours in the church buildings. My profession is also a sort of calling. Without talking about the gospel, I try to teach it, its values and principles. As Joseph Smith said "I teach them the right principles, and they govern themselves".
