The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my growing relationship with Jesus. Devoting time to spend with Christ and sharing Christ with others are most important to me. Also, cultivating relationships with friends and family in my life, caring for children and devoting time and energy into the lives of my students, being a good friend, being active, living a selfless life and being supportive to the people who have always supported me.
I typically spend my leisure time
Some of my usuals...dinners out with good conversation over a good glass of wine, movies too, rent a good dvd and grab a chai and call it a night, take a bath, love to journal about life, the day, etc., get my nails done (usually with my mom or a friend), SHOP! (love to with my mom...), hiking, working out at the gym with a friend or with my ipod, taking a walk on the beach, occassionally going to a restaurant/bar and dancing with friends, a museum or art exhibit-These are some of my typical ways to pass time, i am relatively easy going, low key but like to go out too.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty...I am definitely looking for someone that is honest in all areas of their life. I would hope that someone would be honest simply about who they are and not worry about being someone they're not. I would also hope that in their relationships with family, friends, and myself they could be up front, open, authentic, and above all else REAL. It takes courage to be honest with yourself, with others, and most importantly with God...I am looking for a man that is called to honesty in his life. Also, I am looking for someone who is loving, loyal, trustworthy, and seeking a relationship with Jesus too.
The first thing people notice about me
I believe people realize how interested I am in really getting to know them, taking a personal interest in who they are and where they have come from. I enjoy asking questions to get to know someone better and making conversation... people notice that I am easy to talk to, friendly, and interested in them.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was Captivating by Stasi Eldredge which discussed the unveiling of a woman's soul. I enjoyed this book immensely because it tapped into what it is all about to be a Christ-like female and God's feminine creation.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- In my life, I am most thankful for Jesus Christ who died for the forgiveness of my sins and gave me a perfect pattern of how to live in this world.
- I am extremely close to family and many friends who are dear to me and I feel make my life rich. I am glad simply to have people for which to share my life.
- Opportunities offer a wealth of knowledge and even allow us to live our lives differently...i am thankful for the blessed opportunity of travel and education i have had in my life.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Often, I may come across initially as somewhat reserved but I truly have such a carefree and outgoing side to my personality. This is something that those that know me best get the joy of knowing about me and sharing with me. Typically, people don't immediately perceive that I may be this way...sometimes, I wish that I would be more noticeably fun or lighthearted. Usually, one has to get to know me to find this out.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Good listener, Loyal, Spiritual
A little more about me
I want to wish everyone best wishes in their pursuit of the "right" match...I know that we all share high hopes for what might be a possible reality and we just need to give it up to the Lord! :)
