i am a modern contemplative with a twist (translation: i can spend
hours geeking out studying scripture and Greek/Hebrew translations
and then go meet you for a fun night out downtown or a long bike
ride and a jump in a mountain creek) .
i enjoy live music, hikes and camping in the great outdoors, eating
out in Asheville because the food is phenomenal, contra dancing and
just about any activity around town!
i have two beautiful children that I adore and who live with me
most of the time.
As I work in the medical field, i appreciate anything related to
health and wellness. i make lots of juices and smoothies. i really
love veggies and even though i don't prepare meat at home i
consider myself an opportunivore when out and about. i eat alot of
kale. i don't eat gluten or dairy. i love to exercise and do it
regularly (right now I am on p90x- wowza!). I am a big believer in
the 80/20 rule and moderation in everything.
i like Shakespeare and sci-fi but if you will explain sports to me
I might be interested ;-) i am very social and have a fantastic
group of friends that i consider family and an amazing family that
I consider my friends.
you might be "the one" if we have these things in common:
you are kinda nerdy. you are not afraid to try new
food/experiences/places. you will love and appreciate my kids
because they are worthy and hilarious! you are excited about health
and wellness and keeping yourself fit so we can live a long and
healthy life together. (i want to save the rocking chairs on the
porch until we are too old to remember each others names!) you can
appreciate art and enjoy a good museum visit. you can hold a deep,
meaningful conversation. you can make me laugh (believe me, it's
not hard!) you like live theater. you like to play board games. you
can fix stuff around the house. you have a great sense of humor and
don't mind a little sarcasm now and then ;-) most of all, you will,
absolutely, without a doubt, know my Friend and Savior Jesus Christ
and seek Him with all your strength and all your mind. I don't
expect that you will be perfect, but you will know the One Who
the last is really the only deal-breaker so if any/all of those
apply to you say hello!
What I’m doing with my life
raising little women, dreaming of traveling to Ireland, probably
laundry right now...
I’m really good at
procrastinating, my job, parenting, making you laugh, preparing
healthy whole foods, singing in the car.
The first things people usually notice about me
my smile- i wear it often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite writers include A.W. Tozer, C.S. Lewis, Francine
Rivers, Beth Moore, John Piper, Tim Keller and Francis Schaeffer. I
have been heavily influenced by the Boundaries books by Dr. John
McCloud and Dr. Henry Townsend- they are a great resource for
mature emotional health. i dig anything having to do with
Shakespeare and Jane Austen, comedies, sci-fi and documentaries. i
thoroughly enjoy SNL, the Colbert Report and the Daily Show, the
Big Bang Theory, BBC Sherlock Holmes and Downton Abbey. I have an
eclectic taste in music (Johnny Cash, Beethoven, Mumford &
Sons, Men at Work) but prefer singer songwriters like Pierce
Pettis, David Wilcox, Gillian Welch and Bebo Norman- not a huge fan
of rap unless Weird Al has parodied it.
The six things I could never do without
my kiddos, my Bible & devotionals, a good pair of jeans, a
mountain stream, sushi or music
I spend a lot of time thinking about
traveling to Ireland, traveling to the beach, the future and the
now, what i can do for those i love and care for, the
musculoskeletal system, why so many of you have the word taco in
your username, how to be healthier and reduce my carbon footprint.
On a typical Friday night I am
anywhere...could be on my couch in pajamas watching a movie with a
glass of wine, might be downtown dancing with friends, might be
with my church family singing worship songs...might be
asleep...it's a mystery!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i prefer birkenstocks over heels.
You should message me if
your interest has been piqued and you would like to know more!
