The one thing I am passionate about...
my faith in JESUS; protecting babies (both unborn and born); smaller govt. and lower taxes (the less money we christians give to the govt. the more we can give to mission-focused groups and our local churches); thanking our military; and sharing joys with loved ones. on a lighter side, i love listening to music, laughing, and experiencing the LIFE that GOD wants HIS people to have.
I typically spend my leisure time
leisure time has been rare in the past months. but, when i have free time, i like reading the BIBLE, road biking, running (ran one marathon and several 1/2 marathons), teaching kids at my church, and visiting my family in NC (where i grew up).
The most influential person in my life has been
most important, i am interested in a woman who has a strong faith in JESUS and is willing to learn new truths from the BIBLE and to be transformed by those truths and by christian friends. i need a person who likes to discuss the WORD (or a good christian book) and her GOD "moments." i must be best friends with the woman i marry. last, i am interested in a person who (1) is funny, joyful, and content with current circumstances; (2) enjoys exercising (e.g., running, biking) and taking different adventures (e.g., hiking a mountain, traveling to a new vacation spot); and (3) will forgive me when i do or say something dumb.
The first thing people notice about me
you will notice that i am very friendly and enjoy making others feel welcomed and appreciated; that i love to make people laugh; that i am energetic, random, and talkative (i have lots to say . . . is that bad?); and that i am confident (but not arrogant) and very motivated to complete whatever task that i believe needs to be done (whether it be work related, training for a race, or simply cleaning my loft).
The last book I read and enjoyed
the four loves by c.s. lewis (great author!). lewis does an excellent job of describing agape love, the love that GOD has for us and that we should have for each other. in addition, i am very interested in reading books on apologetics (such as the case for Christ), especially after reading in first peter that we christians are called to always "have an answer for the hope that we have in Christ."
The three things which I am most thankful for
- praise and worship music
- wonderful friends and family members
- my desire to seek truth from God's WORD
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
although i prefer to be silly and have fun, i AM very capable of becoming serious when the situation calls for it. in fact, i enjoy discussing or "debating" any political or GOD issue with other persons.
