The one thing I am passionate about...
I am very passionate about the doctrine of God's sovereignty over all things, including salvation. I strongly believe that salvation is of the Lord - completely - and that to try to take any credit for it ourselves is to steal glory from Him. I believe He is sovereign over all things and that nothing happens outside of His will, and that He has foreordained all things that come to pass.
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to read. I'm always in the process of reading a book of some sort. I read whenever I have the chance. I also enjoy watching movies/TV, and going to movies with friends and family. One leisure activity I don't get to do that often is going to concerts. Living in Las Vegas, I have lots of opportunity for this, but since I'm not made of money, I can't go to every concert that comes along, hehe. :-) But when one of my favorites comes to town and I can spare the money, I love going.
The most influential person in my life has been
It's impossible to name only one. Someone who is good with money - I'm not the best when it comes to setting up a budget; I can keep to one if I have one, but making one is hard for me. So I would want someone who was good at setting up a budget and keeping to it. I need someone who is funny - not all the time, I mean he should have a serious side too, but he must have a sense of humor! Someone who is loving, kind and gentle. Someone who loves the Lord with all of us heart. Someone who holds to the doctrines of God's sovereignty in all things.
The first thing people notice about me
A lot of people would say my laugh, a lot of people would say my wit, so I guess one of those two things. :-)
The last book I read and enjoyed
I am currently reading John Grisham's latest book, "The Appeal," and even though I only started it yesterday, I absolutely can't put it down. I love his writing style and subject matter, and I love the legal and courtroom aspects of his books. :-D
The three things which I am most thankful for
- God's grace
- God's sovereignty
- God's love
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That even though everyone says I'm "so easy to tease" because I "play the martyr so well," (which is true, hehe) it doesn't mean I like to be teased *constantly* about *everything,* and that sometimes I wish people would let up. LOL
Friends Describe me as
