Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost, my heart belongs to Christ. I don’t always live
it or even remember it, so it’s a good thing that when “our heart
condemns us, God is greater than our hearts, and knows all
I’m a very enthusiastic person. Passionate. When I get excited
about something, I dive in with everything.
I’m eternally hopeful. This means I get hurt a lot, but I believe
some things (friendships, principles, ideals) are worth the risk.
“I’m still a dreamer, a believer. I’ve lost my faith in so many
things, but I still believe in You.”
A big part of me still wishes I had a tree house.
“I love old things. They make me feel sad.” “What’s good about
sad?” you may ask. “It’s happy for deep people.” Sorry. Couldn’t
resist the quote. I do love old things, but they don’t make me sad,
they make me think. I love the stories that you hear a whisper of
when you find or examine something that’s older than your
grandparents. I have a coin collection, and my oldest one is an
1873 Indian Head penny. Where all has that penny been in 140 years?
How many stories has it seen? One of my life goals is to own a
metal detector and find things of historical or financial
significance. Or maybe just some really cool looking old
I also collect coins from around the world. I love to travel, to
see the beauty that God has created in nature and in cultures. (If
you Christian boys have a problem with that last one, read Eternity
in Their Hearts by Don Richardson). I like to go places and try new
things. It bothers me that there is so much of Houston that I
haven’t explored. Too often, practicality and comfort quench my
thirst for discovery and my wanderlust. I want someone who will
hold my hand and lead me into new adventures, new horizons.
That is ultimately the person for whom I am looking. God has a plan
for me, a story that He wants to write for His glory. He has made
me compassionate and contemplative and passionate and with an
adventurous spirit on purpose. I believe He wants to use me to
reach the world for Him, and I’m looking for someone with the same
call to take my hand and to fight and build and love and sacrifice
along side of me. I believe He could use me without a partner, a
comrade, a fellow soldier, but I am flawed. It may be His plan to
bring someone to me who complements my strengths and makes up for
and encourages me to overcome my weaknesses.
And, because I’m pretty truthful, here’s some negative: I
procrastinate, and I’m perpetually late. I don’t do either of these
intentionally or out of a lack of consideration. Some struggles
just take longer to overcome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I'm working hard trying to payoff my student loans. But
I believe that God will eventually (sooner, rather than later,
hopefully) find a place for me on a foreign mission field. I've
been on several mission trips, and I can't really imagine living my
life for anything else. Not to say that I'm closed-minded about any
changes to my dreams. I'll follow wherever He leads. But my heart
aches for impoverished children in other countries.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking cupcakes. Seriously.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, don't know if it's the first thing, but if I'm with my
sisters, people are like, "Are you sisters? You look so much
alike!" Then we play the who-do-you-think-is-older game or
how-old-do-you-think-I-am game. I love that game because nobody
ever guesses I'm thirty. They're always like, "Wow! You look 25!"
Yeah. Good game.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love C.S. Lewis and read The Chronicles of Narnia every year.
Even though they're kids' books, I think every adult Christian
should read them. I love The Weight of Glory as well. Some other
authors who are awesome are John Piper, Ravi Zacharias, and Philip
Yancey. I'm a big Tolkien fan, too.
My favorite movies include The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Die
Hard movies, The Indiana Jones movies (except the last one; talk
about disappointing), Pride and Prejudice, The Shawshank
Redemption, Tombstone, Fool's Gold, and (now) Les Miserables.
T.V., you ask? I like The Office, Once Upon a Time, and Sherlock,
and I'm a major Whovian. Ten cool points if you know what that
As far as music goes, I listen pretty much exclusively to Christian
music. Some of my favorites include the Newsboys (Peter Furler
edition), Tenth Avenue North, TobyMac, Lecrae, Britt Nicole, Chris
Tomlin, Sanctus Real, David Crowder Band, and NeedtoBreathe.
Lately, I've been obsessing over the Les Miserables
Food? Yes, please.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
God - His plans for me, our relationship, what He's doing and going
to do in my life. I'm also very creative, so I let my imagination
run wild quite frequently. I really enjoy writing, and it would be
seriously cool if God were to use me in that way some day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...usually working. But if I do have a free evening, I like to
spend it with my sisters or a friend. I like going to the movies or
to dinner. I LOVE concerts! I also like trying new things, going
places I've never been before. I'm cool with staying at home, too.
I like having people over (one of my resolutions is to host more),
but I also don't mind being by myself.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you can use complete sentences and punctuation.
My first priority, however, is to hear from a Godly guy. If you
love Christ and want to honor Him with your life, send me a
message. If you just want to talk about Him, that'd be great, too.
