The one thing I am passionate about...
I love Jesus and try to live my life in a way that pleases Him. If I can laugh along the way, all the better. I'm passionate about life, kids and advocating for those who can't advocate for themselves. I am confident, insecure, guarded, and open all wrapped in one nutty package!
I typically spend my leisure time
Hanging out with friends--watching movies, going hiking, reading and working out. I also enjoy visiting my family who have all left California to settle in Colorado.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a relationship full of honest communication and laughter. My ideal partner is confident but not afraid to laugh at himself. He appreciates my quirks and actively seeks balance in his life. Most importantly, I need to be with someone who loves Jesus and realizes that loving Jesus is an everyday thing.
The first thing people notice about me
This question makes me want to admit that I have a freakish habit or extra body part...Instead, I'll say that when I meet new people, I'm friendly and I look for ways to help them connect. If I'm not smiling, it usually means I'm concentrating on something. I can't walk, smile and think at the same time, but I can pat my belly while rubbing my head!!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I have a ton of books and I tend to have a few going at the same time. I just read a book by Bob Newhart while waiting at an airport. (I love that guy!) The books that I read as part of my quiet time (and hopefully the ones that will make me look uber cool to you) are Freedom of Simplicity (Richard Foster) and one of the Narnia books by CS Lewis. I rotate through all the Narnia books, reading the series once or twice a year. These are books that I read over and over and over again so that I can learn to absorb the life truths within!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Jesus and my relationship with Him
- My friends and family
- God's creation--especially the sunrise, sunset and trees
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My obvious movie star good looks and charm!!! At any given moment, I have a lot of ideas running through my head. :) I am always thinking, planning and plotting. Usually, there's some list I'm creating...I love to make lists!!!
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Good listener, Happy, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I have a slight obsession with the TV show ALIAS. Also, I am a bit eclectic...From the type of movies I watch, music I listen to, books I read, friends I attract to the things I do in my free time. I really do enjoy a little bit of almost everything. Except whip cream. I hate that stuff, and I think it should stay far away from ice cream.
