At a dinner party, I would tell you that I'm an IT consultant who trains the "smart guys" at other people's companies how to do their job better. There's nothing like the look on people's faces when they stop looking down at you to realize you're the giant in the room ;-) In their defense, I'm 5'6 and prefer to start our interactions from a humble disposition =)
While my work life is fun for me, it doesn't really impress you. So, let's move on to what I'm passionate about.
Having traveled across the country for the last 15 years, I've come to learn first hand just how pitiful the state of Christianity is in this nation. Wait, am I one of those smart guy atheists that are in vogue? Not a chance.
I love Jesus, and I love teaching His Word to Christians who want to know what the Bible actually says (vs the non sense that passes for Christian culture or sermons). Turns out, whether you grew up in the church or you're a meth addict, people really love knowing God's Word actually says. (And yes, I did lead meth addicts through several books of the Bible, eg Hebrews aka one of the harder books.)
It's one thing to have read the Bible, it's another to be able to demonstrate through the highs and lows of your life that God is faithful. You want to minister to drug addicts, you have to be able to meet the darkness in their souls if you want to shine the light.
So, who am I looking to meet? Well, I'm a little guy, but you're welcome to be tall or short. You're physically fit, because we both love taking long walks and sharing wandering conversations. You're gracious and loving and kind; and as a party hostess, everyone loves you because of how much you pour yourself into people.
Why us? Well, honestly, between our two gifts and personalities, we're going to start guerrilla ministries before graduating to being full on church planters. We're not preachers, we just do the best we can with what God gave us ;-)
Books, well, I'll try anything people hand me
Thai and Indian are my favorite date foods, but to be honest, I'll eat almost anything but seafood
seriously, I've driven the width of the US over 3x....imagination is necessary
