Christina is a cradle Catholic, raised by two amazing parents who put faith first in her family and made living out their faith a priority. 

The role of Mother Mary in her life is one of divine inspiration and intervention. Mary's willingness to serve the Lord, her consistent obedience to our Heavenly Father, and her strength to endure the worst of seeing Jesus crucified ,reminds Christina everyday to focus on the calling of the Lord and not the calling of the world!

Listen to this inspiring talk from Karen. It's impressive!
