Many words can be used to describe me. The one I choose most often is multifaceted. A few others would be random, funny, happy, driven, intelligent, spontaneous, accepting, tenderhearted, and surprising. Jesus is the love of my life and needs to be number one to whoever I end up with. We need to walk together day by day toward Him and encourage each other in our spiritual growth. I am currently studying to be a Surgical technologist and finish in July. I also completed 3 years of premed. If you don't like cuddling and mushy gushy romance, are a very picky eater, don't enjoy laughing and a girl with both a serious and goofy side, or if you take your Christianity lightly...by default we may not mesh well. I say I am multi-faceted because I am very feminine and girly but at the same time don't mind getting my hands dirty, going on a rough little adventure, powering through a torturous workout, or doing heavy work when necessary. I love camping and the outdoors, and am in love with fitness. I LOVE to cook especially for the people I love and can make pretty much anything you like foreign or not especially vegan/vegetarian. I greatly enjoy drawing and am also a writer. I love singing, especially praise, and enjoy reading. I especially love deep spiritual study/pondering difficult Biblical issues and chewing on them with fellow Adventists with similar deep analytical curiosity.
Now for my specific life situation in a nutshell…a little over a year ago before my mom had a cancer recurrence I felt God impressing me to leave school (pre-med) and go to the mission field. I was in Bolivia teaching sexually abused kids, orphans, and children too poor to be supported by their families. It was a little orphanage/SDA boarding school in the Bolivian jungle. I was planning to be there indefinitely until I got the call about my mom. The church chipped in to fly me back and I took care of her, my brother, and sister until she passed away a few months later. I had one AMAZING mom and miss her terribly. Before she passed she had me assure her that I would keep my siblings and raise them to her high standards. She knew I was the only one that would/could and that their dad was grossly incapable to do so. I hold that responsibility happily and am glad I could give her peace in her sickness knowing that her kids would be ok and striving to make it to God’s Kingdom where we would meet again. They are 10 and 13. The big kicker is that apparently my heart isn't over long term mission work. My passion lies with the lost souls and I committed at GYC 2012 in front of God and over 4,000 people to go back into the mission field yet again until God calls me out. My idea would be for life. When I am not soul winning I feel myself wishing I was so I'm over wishing and onto doing. I am thinking that my brother will want to stay in the states and go to boarding academy since it was such a good experience for me but my little sister will definitely want to come with me. This is my big disclaimer. Mission work IS my heart. Jesus has obviously placed that pull within me so I have to follow Him on this one and feed His sheep. In light of everything I have a very specific prayer. To find a man that is Godly and self sacrificing enough to find deep fulfillment and happiness with ME in a life of full time missions. Someone to dig deep with into God’s precious truths. A man that can crack me up and be goofy with me…a best friend. I figure that if my person can be my love and my best buddy I win. Someone that wants a passionate love…I refuse to have a stagnate relationship or marriage, I am passionate about most everything I do and if you are the one God leads to me you will be my most passionate focus after my Saviour and His work. You will be spoiled, taken care of, full of homemade food all of the time, respected, served, challenged, balanced out, complemented, and loved to pieces. That’s just how it is. I am the type to give of myself and to the man God has for me I will give everything and some extras. There is always more to learn about me but it is up to you to dig deeper.

Something random and cute...something we can do while getting to know each other better.
I have learned to embrace my standards and uphold them...settling is never wise. I have also learned that at the end of the day relationships are hard work, and unless you see lifelong qualities in a person there is no point in wasting time playing the casual dating game. And CHEMISTRY DOES EXIST AND WITHOUT IT...relationships are just sub-par.
What is Adventism to me? It's a lifestyle, a subculture, a decision...to stand out, be different, to follow God wholeheartedly according to His word, unmoved by the snickers of the crowd, the potential loss of job, the promise of persecution, firm no matter what, unto death....driven by the promise of seeing our Master's beautiful face and being with Him eternally. An international family, a connection between strangers that transcends distance, a circle that understands the meaning of potluck, Grillers, and haystacks (oh my). Something beautiful...a solemn call to character perfection on earth.
I see myself on the front lines of the mission field with the wonderful man God gives me saving souls into His kingdom.
There are too many!!!! On this I am indecisive.
This complacent, high tech, rich, overly comfortable American life is a joke. We go around...our biggest complaint being we don't have extra this or that when we have thousands of dollars worth of stuff sitting all around us...pretty houses, surpluses of food even when we are "broke". Not a bit
of it bettering us for God's kingdom. It just doesn't feel right. No real care for God's will at least not enough to induce serious action, little desire to improve in order to reflect His TRUE image. We live in the age of pure selfishness. I really need to pray about God's purpose for the Christian's life in the time we live in...in the country we live in...because I am pretty sure this isn't even close. Oh Lord wake us up. We are drowning in privilege and can't even spend five minutes with you most days...let alone sacrifice for other people to bring them to You. Clearly something has to give. This isn't enough for me. That pull won't leave my heart. I can't do this American dream nonsense. We are in critical times...people need to know Jesus...they need to be ready for what is coming to the earth. What have I done to that end??? Nothing! And for that I am genuinely ashamed. God forgive me. Lord free us from this trap of complacency, disinterest, apathy, and hard heartedness the devil has so masterfully placed for each and every one of us.
