The one thing I am passionate about...
The most important thing to me is growing in relationship with Jesus. I want to know his heart and get closer to it. I love people, have a lot of compassion for the helpless and needy, and hope to live and work in Africa.I love being outdoors and spending time with family--camping is one of my favorite activities because it combines both!
I typically spend my leisure time
I don't have a lot of hidden talents. I like driving with the windows down and singing loudly, listening to friends, board games and camping with my family, hiking, scuba diving, traveling, finding new music, geeking out (see also: fangirling), reading to my two-year-old nephew, and eating. I'll try anything once. Twice if I don't like it, just to make sure.
The most influential person in my life has been
Looking for someone to adventure in life with, who is smart and challenging, and maybe a bit mischievous. I like a little bit nerdy, too. You've got to love Jesus and people.
The first thing people notice about me
I tend to be sassy--i might make a joke to break the ice, and i'm not afraid to start a friendly conversation with anyone
The last book I read and enjoyed
I jumped on the YA series bandwagon and read the Hunger Games series and am now reading Divergent.I'm also reading "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Jesus. A relationship with God because of salvation through Christ, and the unconditional acceptance found in Him.
- My family--I am blessed to have four wonderful brothers and sisters and a great relationship with my dad.
- My job/education--I feel like I am in a profession that makes a difference, and feel my education prepared me well to be a part of that process.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I don't think I'm better than you. I can be pretty outgoing, and I think when I'm not, people think I am judging them, when in reality, I might be intimidated by them.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I'm still a work in progress! There are some things i'm really sure about myself and really like, but there are others that drive me crazy. I try not to get hung up on those things, but sometimes i feel like i'm not sure of myself. I'm not "totally" or "never" anything--I'm nuanced!
