About Big Lake

Many residents of Big Lake commute to work in Anchorage, 60 miles to the south, but choose to live in Big Lake for its limitless recreation opportunities and the views of Mount Susitna, Denali and the Talkeetna Mountains.

Things to do

Not surprisingly, recreation in the area centers around the lake, and it is indeed big, with 67 miles of shoreline. Popular activities include swimming, camping, boating, fishing, jet skiing and tour boat rides in the summer; in the winter, snowmobile competitions, dog mushing, ice fishing and cross-country skiing dominate the lake’s frozen surface.

Big Lake North State Recreation Site is located on the lake and has overnight parking spaces, walk-in tent sites, picnic area, shelters and an outstanding view of Denali on a clear day. Also nearby is Fish Creek Park, a popular day-use area with a salmon spawning observation deck; Big Lake South State Recreation Site with campsites and a boat launch on the lake; and Rocky Lake State Recreation Site with camping on a lake closed to jet skis, jet boats and air boats.

Bio Marlene was raised in Central Florida, the daughter of a 12th generation farmer and part Cherokee mother. She learned at an early age to work hard and to love God. She first met Jesus at the tender age of six sitting in an orange tree in her backyard in Sanford, Florida. This was when she first felt a call to the nations. She is mother to four sons, three grandchildren, and many spiritual sons and daughters. Isaiah 54 is her life chapter. It was from that scripture God gave her two specific promises about her physical children. “All your children will be taught of the Lord and have great peace.”(Isaiah 54:13) and, “Your decedents will occupy other nations and resettle the ruined cities.” (Isaiah 54:3). Marlene has been called to go wherever and by whatever means God leads and guides; making disciples, assisting and caring for the children He sends her way. This could be across the street or across the world. It could be to the jailhouse, or to someone’s penthouse or simply a backyard BBQ. But wherever she is, her desire is to bring hope and healing to a lost generation. She has a heart for the lost, backslidden and broken. Her desire is to love and know the Lord fully and unconditionally, growing in His grace and wisdom; becoming His perfect bride, without spot or wrinkle. God created us to be beautiful. She wants to know and become God’s treasure on this earth and to help others become God’s treasured people also. God searches today for those who will make Him their single desire, who will say with the Psalmist and King David that, “the Lord is the portion of mine inheritance” (Psalm 16:5). They will be His special possession because, “the Lord hath chosen Jacob unto Himself, and Israel for His peculiar treasure” (Psalm 135:4). 850-661-6104 CinderellaReleased.Me marlene@CinderellaReleased.com Webpage http://cinderellareleased.wixsite.com/cinderellareleased
