Hi I'm Christina Brennan

I was born in Toronto Ontario, I went to school here for art & art history, geography and philosophy.

About Me

I graduated recently from university with a major in Art & Art History and a double minor in Philosophy and Geography. I really enjoyed making art for a purpose. Making art that could change people's perception of things, or art that could make you laugh or cry. Art that educated the viewer about all the things that are happening in the world. I also enjoyed Philosophy for some of the same reasons I enjoyed art, it could change your perception of things and open your mind.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter-Day Saint because it just makes so much sense. I know that this church and faith is from Heavenly Father. This church is modeled after the same way Christ organized his Church when he was here on the earth, with apostles, prophets, temples, baptism through immersion, everything. I am the kind of person who needs my questions answered, and this faith has been able to provide those scrupulous logical answers. Life goes a lot better when I have the Lord on my side helping me and giving me strength. All we have to do is ask and He will help us with anything we need. I really feel His love when I am doing my part to help make this world a better place. When life becomes too much and I pray to Heavenly Father for guidance, I gain understanding and I know why and how to proceed. It is during these times I am very grateful to be part of this faith.

How I live my faith

I like to set different goals for myself all the time that either teach me something new or help me to be a better person. I am always reading inspirational books, books from our church, or books that will open my mind to other things that I can learn more about. Everyday I read the scriptures and often church magazines which have great messages from our living apostles and our prophet. I enjoy helping others and serving those in need. One day I want to go to Latin America and help build schools for those who cannot afford education.

What is the Church's position on abortion?

Christina Brennan
We feel that it is not good to take a life before it had a chance to live, but we also understand that there are special circumstances which may exist where one might be permitted. We also have a great adoption program set up for those who may not be able to take care of their baby, and for those who cannot have one themselves or wish to adopt. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Christina Brennan
We believe in the Bible because we know that it was written by ancient prophets who followed the Lord. Their stories can be very inspirational. We know that over time the Bible has been tampered with, but we follow it as far as it has been translated correctly. And some stories are not always stories of what you should do, but actually of what you shouldn't do - which is different. The Bible tells of the good and the bad times prophets had, which makes these chosen people of God more relatable, and reminds us that they are people too, and it is possible to become like them.
