Hi! My name is Christina, although I do go by Tina as well. I am a woman of many passions. First and most important is my passion for my faith in God. I enjoy growing and learning in my beliefs. Even though I grew up in church, I have not always been a devoted Christian. I went through a rough period where I battled some depression, suicidal thoughts, negative self image, and living a rather indulgent lifestyle. Fortunately, I realized that such a life was not fulfilling and found myself turning to church for some relief. I will forever be thankful that God called me back into his arms, because I know without a doubt that my life would not be as fulfilled as it is now if it were not for Him. To help my faith to continue to grow and to learn new things and challenge myself, I currently lead an adult Sunday school class called The Goodlife and love it.
Then, of course, my wonderful family is a passion of mine. I am a mother of a beautiful baby girl, my little Makenzie. I gave birth to her on October 21, 2008 and my life has never been the same. She brightens up every one of my days with her smile and laugh. I am also married to the most wonderful and supportive man, Peter. He helps me to pursue any passion I may have and is always encouraging me. Through the thick and the thin, I know he will be by my side and I could not ask for more.
My other big interest is fitness. I plan to go into a personal training career once I return to work from being a stay at home mom. Fitness and healthy living has always been a big part of my life. My fitness “achievements” range fromcompeting in a figure competition to working out up until the day before my daughter was born. 🙂
I also love to read. I typically enjoy chick lit and suspense novels with some mystical stories thrown in the mix. I read for fun, so you won’t find me with my nose in a serious classic. Reading is my escape haven. I like to keep it that way. I will do many reviews on this blog.
