Hi I'm Marleina

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three children. I have two younger brothers. Growing up, we were always outside. Riding four-wheelers, canoeing, fishing, and getting dirty. We spent our summers often going to my granddad's home in Surfside Beach. Lots of fond memories were made with my cousins. Music was also a huge part of my life, growing up. I started playing violin when i was 3. Played in all the school orchestras, and even the Florence Symphony, and South Carolina Youth Philharmonic. I don't play as much as I used to and miss it dearly. After high school, I met my husband, and we now have 3 little boys. I'm a stay at home mom and enjoy finding creative things to do and make.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members when I was born, dad a member his whole life and mom a convert when she was very young, so I have always been a member. I have a strong testimony of the truthfulness of His gospel. Even at a young age, when I would go to church with friends, although many teachings were the same, I always felt something was missing. While the Bible is true, I also know the Book of Mormon to be true. I know Joseph Smith restored the gospel to it's fullness. I know God speaks to us today, as he did in biblical times, through a living prophet.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day a little better than the day before. I teach my children about Christ, and His teachings.
