She is known for her prolific songwriting and ability to connect with the audience through her genuine stage presence. While her background in music training is strong, Charlene never realized its impact, nor her calling, until her sister, Andrea, died as a result of the Olivet Nazarene University Orpheus Choir van accident. Her 19 year old heart became adapted to resonating with and infusing hope to bruised hearts. The Lord has gifted her with anointed lyrics and a passion to minister. Charlene has a Bachelor’s in Education (which she now uses to home school her children), runs Journey of Faith Music Publishing and sings lead, alto or second soprano. Charlene is wife to David and mommy to Emma Beth, John Maeson, Anna Mae and Luke Spencer.
