Hi I'm Trena Hawken

From the US but now live in Canada! I live with Bipolar I. Leaning on My Savior Jesus Christ brings JOY! Grateful to be a Mormon!

About Me

Me in a NutShell :) I am a Daughter of My Heavenly Father! I am a Wife. I am a Mother. I am a daughter. I have 3 amazing children. 2 girls and a boy! 22, 19 and 12 going on 20! We have the cutest Toy Poodle Ever! She is a rescue! Arcadia is her name! My employment has been a growing experience. I grew up in the Restaurant business. Moved on to Banking for several years...Loved it! Have worked for myself as well. I love people and I love to learn! I am looking forward to writing a book. I will be starting with a Blog regarding Mental Illness, as I live with the most severe form of Bipolar I. I enjoy Music, Research, Nature, Art, Computers, Games, Fashion, Family History, and more! I'm outgoing and love to have fun! Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my Family and Friends!

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a Mormon because I have had a personal witness that Jesus is the Christ. That He Lives. I have prayed to know that the doctrines of Christ's church are true. I know that Christ has restored His church for us today, so that we might find Happiness in this life. I chose to live a life of unwise choices that only led to misery, not just for me but to all those around me as well. When I applied the teachings of our Savior in my life and looked to Him and Prayed to my Father in Heaven...My heart was cleansed, I felt at peace with the past and knew found hope for the future. I am grateful to know that our Heavenly Father has given us Prophets, like in days of old, to guide and direct us today. The world is changing and for me, it has become critical to stand up in righteousness and love. Being on the fence is no longer an option. I am free to choose to be happy in this life by following the example set by our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a boy of great Faith. Through Him we have another record, another witness and testimony that Jesus Is the Christ. The Book of Mormon contains Christ's visit to the America's. Please read as I did, the Book of Mormon, pray to know of It's truth, and be willing to follow Christ. I know wickedness was never happiness. I have been to many dark places in body, spirit, and mind. I am happy that I have chosen to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Being part of a community is amazing! I have lived in this city for 6 years! I have found many friends attending Church Services and activities. I am the music director in the Women's Organization, which gives me a purpose and lets me serve and inspire others. I have been blessed to help out another Faith in the community by donating Food and Clothing from many in the city. I enjoy visiting 3 very special women who are assigned to me and another friend to watch over, take care of, visit, teach each other, share our worries, struggles and most of all our Triumphs, no matter how small. My heart fills with love when ever I have the opportunity to serve. I love walking in the neighborhood being available for those who need to talk! This is an Elderly area, so many are lonely! Then there are the Teens, kids and the dogs trotting the neighborhood! Well we all have love to share. On my worst days, all I can manage is a smile and a wave to a stranger. My Faith and Hope allow me to be of use in this world, despite my personal failings and afflictions! Hugs and love to all! We can all do more!
