The one thing I am passionate about...
Living for the Lord. It's hasn't always been this way for me, but as each day passes, my passion for Him grows stronger. It's actually a passion that I didn't know existed, but that I am so thankful for. And living for Him means living the life He created me to live and right now, I love that life.
I typically spend my leisure time
Depends on the season. . . my summers are meant for the beach and water, during winters and falls I like to cozy up with books, movies, friends, and hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. Being out in LA is so much different,though, because I grew up on the East coast and now can spend practically the entire year outside. Who knew?
The most influential person in my life has been
Acceptance. It's harder than it seems and it's one I struggle with on a daily basis. On all levels - where I am in my life, where my friends are, what is put infront of me. . . all of it. And we have to be able to make eachother laugh. It's one of my most favorite things to do!
The first thing people notice about me
My warmth which is pretty much communicated with my smile.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Inside Out by Larry Crabb. Talk about going deep. There was no escaping the fact that until I go into the depths of my soul and sort out all the crap that's living in there, I won't be open to receiving the cool waters of love that God has to offer. I've just started to go there, and although it's a painful process, I know it will be totally worth it. I want to know the depth of God's love and be able to share that with everyone in my life. This book is helping me do just that. Also, SexGod by Rob Bell. It explores how our sexuality and spirituality are interconnected and we can't run from that or afford not to talk about it.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith in Jesus.
- My family.
- My friends.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm not as intimidating as I look. I didn't even know I was intimidating and when I found out, I was so stunned! Me intimidating? No way!
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I live my life out of love, not out of fear. I am able to dialogue about all the crucial struggles, joys, and hardships in life, but I love to have fun. Pure, silly, dorky, go-to-Disneyland fun. I have a big smile and I'm not afraid to use it. . .
