I'm passionate about Christ and bringing His kingdom to earth. This passion drives everything else in my life. I try to live every day loving God and loving people. Practically speaking, I love God by studying scripture and theology, living prayerfully, and striving to bring Him glory in all I do. I love people by sharing Christ's kingdom life with them, encouraging them to live in freedom, according to the Spirit and not the flesh (Gal. 5:16-23), and blessing them in practical ways -- through relationships, church involvement, and writing.
I'm an Enneagram 6 with a 5 wing. On the Myers-Briggs, I'm an INFJ.
I grew up on a hobby farm in the Pacific Northwest, so I am pretty passionate about rural living.
I've spent the last couple years helping my family remodel a house. Someday I hope to build my own home on my family's 36 acres.

You are invited to the first ever Winter Gathering in Colorado Springs!

On the agenda: Activities like sledding, ice skating, as well as a chance for a scavenger hunt, sightseeing, fellowshipping with other HSAers, playing games inside if it's too cold outside, and possibly a Civil War Ball…
and let us know if you'd be interested in coming! I know it's rather early for definite responses - we just appreciate getting a “no,” a “maybe,” or a “possibly” if you think you might be interested! Hope to see you there!
