The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about Jesus and honoring Him to the best of my ability. I really, really like music... Jam sessions with friends and going to concerts are always fun. I love brightening others' day and serving people. I'm passionate about friendships and building true community. I'm becoming more and more passionate about missions and I love supporting the missionaries God has placed in my life.
I typically spend my leisure time
1) One of my top "love languages" is quality time - and I truly enjoy the simplicity of spending time with family and friends, whether it's enjoying food together, watching a movie together, or just talking.2) Music is a large part of who I am. I enjoy tinkering around on my keyboard from time to time, singing at the top of my lungs on road trips, and going to concerts when I can. I love harmonizing to the radio with friends or on my church's worship team.3) I like being outside, especially in the fall and spring. I've been a runner at heart since high school, and I also enjoy hiking on weekends now that I live near moun
The most influential person in my life has been
Servant leadership rooted in a strong relationship with Jesus. I believe a man should not be afraid to be the leader of a relationship and ultimately the family. I also value honesty, open communication, and the ability to make others (including me!) laugh.
The first thing people notice about me
I think people first notice my smile... I may be an introvert, but I try to smile at everyone I meet and make them feel as comfortable as possible. I think people also notice my sincerity in the way I speak and act. I try to genuinely listen to others and truly understand them.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently finished The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. It encouraged readers to faithfully pursue God-given dreams/desires through prayer. It was a great read that helped re-energized my prayer life!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Authentic community and my church where I truly feel at home.
- Godly parents and sister/brother-in-law who are supportive, loving, and reflections of Jesus
- Music & the written word (books, Scripture, etc)
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am shy when first meeting others, and this can mask my silly, energetic side. I open up with those closest to me, so people are often surprised when they find out I'm not as quiet as they once thought. :)
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Good listener, Kind, Thoughtful
A little more about me
A partner who has a growing relationship with Jesus is a must for me. I value taking things slow. I tend to be pretty old school/ traditional when it comes to dating and relationships. I'm an INSJ. And I'm pretty good at incorporating song lyrics into everyday conversation :)
