Hi I'm Talia Christen

I grew up in Southern Alberta. I'm a wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I Love taking pictures of my family and friends. Sometimes the people around me get sick of seeing me behind a camera, however I know that someday they will cherish the pictures that I have taken. I am in the process of writing a book. Really just the very beginning stages of gathering my information and convincing myself that I can do it. I have the best possible other half. He is my confidant, he is my comfort and always knows how to calm the raging seas that are my emotions. I love to sing and dance with my sisters. My sisters and my mother are the best friends I could have ever asked for. I truly believe that God knew that I would need them. Especially during particular times of trouble. My favorite days in the world are warm days when I get to play with my family all day outside, have a bonfire and take a million pictures to remember it all. I was told once in my youth that once I have done my part to make my struggles or illnesses go away the first thing I need to do is ask for a blessing. From that day on I have had my testimony grow daily because of the power of the priesthood within my life. I'm lucky to have a Husband, Father and Brothers that love it as well and magnify that calling.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can not deny the truth which I have seen. There have been difficult trials for sure. There have been times where I have wanted to quit. And it is in those time and trials where I have felt my lowest that my Savior Jesus Christ has reached out his hand and lifted me back up. Sometimes by blessings from worthy priesthood holders, sometimes from a kind word from a friend at just the right time and sometimes from his own words that are undeniably for me. He has tested me, tried me, helped me and saved me. I know that I am loved and that all I have to do is endure this life well and to its fullest and the blessings will be comprehensible.

How I live my faith

How I live the gospel of Jesus Christ is by remembering him daily. Whether I am at work or home, Shopping or hanging out with friends I try to live in ways that my Savior would want me to. I feel like it is so hard to make good choices all the time. It is so easy to just not choose. But by not choosing, we are making the wrong choice. There are so many people that we could help and good places that we could go. The book I am working on focuses on one aspect of my testimony. Developing a character worthy of my savior. Being someone he would love to be around all the time because of my actions. I hope that someday when I finish this book that I can share this testimony with everyone around me.
