The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about learning and enjoying simple pleasures in life and seeing God's fingerprints in all that is around me: sounds of nature, flora & fauna, food and drink, the written and spoken word, playing music on my guitar, and in the faces and voices of people who are created in His image.
I typically spend my leisure time
During my leisure time I enjoy spending time with others as well as times of solitude. I like to explore local museums, nearby parks, walk the neighborhood, hear live music and shows. I also take Pilates classes and other exercise at the gym. I enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting and knitting.
The most influential person in my life has been
That would be humility which I've come to define as understanding who you are in relation to God. Don't see yourself as anything less or more than God views you.
The first thing people notice about me
That I talk easily, listen well, and tend to say humorous things.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Pathway to Freedom written by Alistair Begg, a Scottish-born pastor now preaching in America, is an expository book on the Ten Commandments. I enjoyed his clear and concise biblical teaching on the meaning of the Ten Commandments and its continued relevance to me today. He's also an excellent writer using the "Queen's English" with great humor! (I was an English major.) I really understood the 4th commandment about how "thou shall not take my name in vain," and have endeavored to omit the easy-to-say "Oh my ..... " from my vocabulary.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That God has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ & His Bible
- My loving family and faithful friends
- trees, flowers, mountains, and water because I love the textures and colors that they give our earth
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Even though I have a tender heart, I also have a firm, discerning mind.

A little more about me
Though I was born and raised in the States, I am fluent in Cantonese and value my Chinese culture. Actually, I am more of a third-culture person meaning that I am a combination of two cultures who doesn't identify only with one culture over the other. I support missions as a sender and prayer and am open to going overseas as a teacher.
