The one thing I am passionate about...
I love learning, whether through traveling, exploring, studying, or just taking a chance and trying something new! There's a great big world out there with lots of interesting things and people in it. Lots of needs. Lots of promise. I love finding ways to get out of my comfort zone and help meet some of those needs. Jesus said, "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." (Jn 8:31-32) I long to make the truth known!
I typically spend my leisure time
I love to be outside, travel to new places and experience the beauty of God's creation!
The most influential person in my life has been
A clear testimony of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ and a life that matches. I'm not looking for perfection, I'm looking for someone who is humbly honest about their strengths and their weaknesses and is actively striving to reflect the character of Christ in their everyday life. Enduring relationships take time to build, but they are always worth it!
The first thing people notice about me
Definitely not my ears. ;-)
The last book I read and enjoyed
I really don't take much time to read for pleasure, and when I do have the opportunity I generally find myself hungry for some time in God's Word. But I do enjoy books by authors such as C. S. Lewis, Ravi Zacharias, and others who have a profound way of causing you to think deeply.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- The salvation I have through the shed blood of Christ, my Savior.
- The love, support, and encouragement of my family and church.
- The freedom and ability to explore and enjoy all aspects of God's creation.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
The life changing power of my Savior GOD. Sadly it's my own sinful self that most often blocks their view. But I am confident of one thing, "that He who began a good work in [me] will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ."

A little more about me
Hopefully you have been encouraged or refreshed in some small way by what you have read here, but please know that anything good about me is simply a testament to the boundless grace of a loving God; a God who continues to grow and shape me into the image of His dear Son, Jesus Christ, despite my best efforts to do it on my own. If this resonates with you, I'd love to have a chance to meet you and say "Hi!" =)
