The one thing I am passionate about...
I love working with children. They have so much potential. Many are in terrible home environments (it's no wonder I see so many in my practice with emotional problems!) and need someone to show them Christ's love. Not everyone is equipped to care for 25+ ill and/or special needs children in a day, day in and day out. God has given me the knack and motivation to do this work.
I typically spend my leisure time
My leisure time is limited, but i keep busy taking care of my animals. I am mom to two beautiful rescued dogs, Belle and Shady, and also have three elderly cats. (i am not an animal person by nature, but i have stories behind obtaining each animal.) i also love to cook, and although i do it rarely at this point in my life, i hope to become an amateur chef someday. i go online often to search out healthy recipes and learn about food. i am a believer in eating unprocessed foods and prefer organic, locally grown produce.
The most influential person in my life has been
He must be a believer in salvation through Jesus Christ alone, understand the grace He has freely given us, and live out his faith daily.
The first thing people notice about me
I am pint-sized and look young for my age. People often mistake me for a high school or college age girl (yes, i will be forever carded!). However, those who talk to me quickly realize that I am much older than I look. I have been told many times that I have wisdom and maturity beyond my years.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"A Woman after God's Own Heart" by Elizabeth George. She defined several roles of a woman, helped to affirm the priorities I already held, and gave practical ways to maintain these in my life.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my salvation, a gift offered to all by Jesus Christ
- an incredible spiritual life ("the abundant life"), also given to us through His grace
- family members and close friends who have been continual sources of encouragement
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
At first I may come across as shy, but in the right set of circumstances, I am full of energy and fun. Why don't you write me and find out for yourself?
