The one thing I am passionate about...
A few things. My relationship with God, reading/discussing the Word, and seeking the presence/voice of the Holy Spirit. Teaching and imparting knowledge to students. Laughing, story telling, and drinking coffee. I am also passionate about children and advocating on their behalf with my profession. I am also passionate about grace: extending forgiveness, encouraging others who feel broken or hopeless, and championing the cause of the downtrodden.
I typically spend my leisure time
Talking with friends, working out, reading, listening to music, writing. I also love nature - going to the beach or the mountains; anywhere that cries out the glories of God!
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who loves God, loves life, communicates well, and likes to laugh. Adventuresome is great too! But, the most important quality is probably a forgiving/grace-filled heart.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile. Sometimes the color of my eyes. My energy level.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Journey of Desire. It motivated me to seek Christ and wild abandonment to Him and the dreams He has for me. Waking the Dead is also amazing. Other authors I appreciate are Brennen Manning and Tony Campolo.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my relationship with Christ
- my relationship with my friends
- my relationship with my family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
hmmm, I have absolutely no idea.

A little more about me
I like to play chess, discuss anything about God, eat in the middle of the night, and be adventuresome (mountain bike, hike, scuba dive, run).
