Overcoming All Obstacles

"Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal."

~ Henry Ford

Those who have been watching America's Got Talent in this year of 2010, have had the great privilege to be introduced to two of the most incredible people I have ever come to know. "How can two individuals be that special?" you may ask, but once you get even the slightest glimpse of their testimony / their story, you can't help but know they are two-of-a-kind. Christina and Ali Christensen have become a celebrity sensation with their gorgeous, courageous singing and encouragement for everyone to achieve their dreams no matter what obstacles may stand in the way. They have stood before America on television with a message to share, and have opened the hearts of people across the nation as well as across the world. They have inspired millions with such a touching story that has even brought tough guys to tears.

Christina, 13, and Ali, 20, as well as their brother Shawn & sister April, were born with a lung disease called Cystic Fibrosis. According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation [], Cystic Fibrosis is a chronic, inherited disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of around 30,000 adults & children in the U.S., around 70,000 worldwide. There is a defective gene in those with the disease which composes a protein that causes the body to produce unusually sticky, thick mucus that can clog the lungs, leading to life-threatening lung infections. It may also obstruct the pancreas, preventing natural enzymes from forming to help the body break down food and absorb it. Thankfully, since the 1950s, advanced research and medical treatments have extended the life expectancy and enhanced what type of lifestyle one with cystic fibrosis may have. Even still, those with the disease, face obstacles every single day, and it takes courage to overcome these obstacles. There is no doubt that Christina and Ali share a courage and strength as they pursue their dreams. Their eyes are focused on their aspirations and dreams, and there is nothing that these two cannot accomplish. I can see these two beating every obstacle that comes their way, living long lives, advancing cystic fibrosis research, and helping millions of others facing challenges everyday to pursue their dreams and succeed as well.

Hope... & The Power of Family

Through my interaction with Christina, Ali, and their wonderful mother Janie, I have come to realize how strong a family bond is and the incredible things that can be accomplished when family is there to encourage and push you toward the sky to reach your highest dreams. After a year since the loss of their dear sister, April, Christina & Ali have held strong together with their family and continued to pursue their dreams to share HOPE with the rest of the world. Having lost my mother when I was 23 years old, she only being 50 years old, I understand the strength and courage it must take to bring hope to other people when your own hopes & joys are challenged daily... but Christina & Ali, as well as the rest of the family, have continued to share a genuine joy, strength, comfort, and LOVE to share with the rest of the world. In the past year and a half, I have been amazed at how encouraging and inspiring the entire family has been. And the things they have accomplished together have taken my breath away. Ali held the crown as Miss Idaho Falls for the 2009-2010 year, and competed for the crown of Miss Idaho (which she may have won had it not been for her contract with America's Got Talent), but despite everything, Ali, Christina, and the family never give up pursuing life with a true smile and recognition of life's worth on every level. They have been an example of thankfulness to many friends and fans, showing the world that despite the obstacles they face, there is always much to be thankful for and much GOOD to share with the world.

A Priceless Friendship

"To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world"

~ Brandi Snyder

Christina and Ali Christensen have become the most dear friends of mine in just a short amount of time that I have known them. It doesn't take knowing Christina and Ali for years to understand the priceless friendship that they offer to those who desire it. I, as well as many others who have gotten to know the two even just a little bit, have instantly recognized how unique they are and instantly want nothing but the best for their whole family. Lu Mac, another great friend of the family, has been a special friend who has shared in this phenomenal friendship with the family. The Christensen family shares a gift of making others feel special and taking friendship very seriously despite what challenges they may face on a daily basis. I have come to realize, they are never too busy to put a smile on the faces of their friends, family, and fans. Even the simple Facebook / MySpace statuses they choose have power to brighten one's day. I am blessed to know them, but even to those who are just now meeting Christina and Ali through their America's Got Talent performances/features, they become priceless friends for life.
