The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about people encountering God. I want them to know their value to Him and encounter His love. In my experience, not realizing they are valuable is the primary reason people "act out"--both children and adults. It's a goal that my art be a medium through which people can encounter God. I don't know exactly what this looks like yet, but I intend to keep trying. I'm also passionate about missions (specifically in regards to orphans), but I'm not yet sure how that fits in my life yet. For now, I just try to love and encourage anyone I encounter as well as I can.
I typically spend my leisure time
Painting/drawing, playing bamboo flute, reading, I'd go hiking, but I'm lacking people to hike with.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a best friend to do life with and build a home and family with, who loves God (non-negotiable) and others; someone with whom I can partner and encourage in pursuing her dreams and who will encourage and partner with me to pursue my dreams. I'm looking for a woman who's intelligent, creative, a bit nerdy, and whose aim is to become more like Jesus every day.
The first thing people notice about me
I smile easily and often. While in line at the grocery store this past Christmas, I had a kindly older lady tell me I was "jolly".
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Bible, Robin Hood, Peter Pan, Chronicles of Prydain, Keep Your Love On, Popular Tales from the Norse
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My upbringing as a missionary kid exposed me to cultures and experiences few others have.
- A few close friends who insist on encouraging me and believing in me even when I don't.
- The goodness of God, His provision, and His constant pursuit of my heart.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Just because I don't particularly enjoy large parties doesn't mean I don't enjoy hanging out with a few close friends.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Genuine, Loyal, Optimistic
A little more about me
I choose to find joy in everything I do. This means I may use a British accent on occasion or gesticulate dramatically. I take stairs in multiples, hiking is about exploration (as opposed to getting from point A to point B), laughing and talking with random strangers is fun and brightens other people's lives, climbing rocks and trees isn't just for kids. Also, I tend to be either whistling or singing throughout the day... almost constantly...
