The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about Christ! He is so good and I'm truly thankful for His work on the cross. Things I like (hold on this, could take awhile! :) I love learning new things, cultures, relationships of all types are so interesting and they truly .make me a better person, I just love how God has created and designed us! I enjoy being outside (hiking, site seeing, biking, etc), playing sports, exploring, learning new things, fashion, ministry work, eating good food and learning to be a better cook, trying new wines, family, friends, reading, design, photography, writing, music....the list could go on, as you can see!
I typically spend my leisure time
Leisure time is spent being fairly active. I'm heavily involved in my local church and that takes quite a bit of time with ministry work and also a small group I participate in. I spend a lot of free time with my girlfriends and we have such a great time! I play sports and ride my bike...and work out at a class called jazzercise. Don't judge...one can burn a lot calories jumping around and dancing! ha! I also am in the process of teaching myself to play the guitar. That has been pretty fun!
The most influential person in my life has been
I think communication is just so important in a relationship. Put two sinful people together and there is going to be some conflict. You need to have two people who are willing to be humble, loving, considerate, and respectful of the other. Conflict resolution is important, commitment, chemistry, friendship, humor, love (at some point), a heart that wants to grow more towards Christ, a good leader, a good listener, but someone who wants to have fun and laugh! To name a few...ha! :)
The first thing people notice about me
I am generally an outgoing person and friendly. I think people see a confident woman and hopefully they see a radiance, and I want that to be Christ. I love to smile and laugh and hopefully entertain people!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read a few books at a time. I finished a book on the Emergent Church recently that was great to know more about that church movement, especially for people in my age group. Also, just finished reading the last Harry Potter book, finally finished all 7, but it was worth it! And am reading a book called "The Life You Crave: Understanding Discernment" or something like that for a book study.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Jesus - amazing grace, God is so, so good!
- My caring family and such great, loving friends and relationships. God has used these people in my life to chisel my rough edges.
- That I can be active and see God's great work. So thankful for my health!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I desire to have their best interests at heart, in sales to ministry work. Definitely not perfect at this, will never be, but I think if we all had this perspective, wouldn't we all get along so much better? :)
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Funny, Outgoing, Spiritual
A little more about me
Genuinely wanting to find a partner, whom is a Godly man, that wants a wife and family. I'm truly excited about what the Lord has in store and just genuine hope in what He can do. I'm excited to meet that person who is a match for me and how that relationship can be a reflection of Christ and his sacrifice for all of us. Just so neat that God has set up marriage to be such a significant thing for man to experience.
