Q: Where are you from?
Q: What's your style?
Q: What would your last meal be?
Q: What are your Myers Briggs?
Q: What brings you hope?
A: Although we didn't move there until I was two, the only home I've ever known is in the little town of Portland, TN.
A: If it's on Pinterest's popular page, I probably don't own it. It's not that I'm hipster, I just don't like to wear things that other people are wearing. My wardrobe consists of timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched to compliment the current fads without the drawback of only being able to wear it until the next "big thing." I enjoy dressing up in business/classy attire, but I always prefer a more grungy, urban look. Hats and rings are my go-to accessories.
A: The one food that I crave more than anything else is barbecue. With what sides, you ask? Coleslaw, first and foremost. But it has to be mayonnaise-based, not vinegar-based. Then baked beans, preferably with some bacon and brown sugar mixed in. I like potato salad for the most part, but if I only get one more side I'm going to pick the macaroni and cheese from Jim n' Nick's every single time.
A: I'm an ISFJ through and through. I'm good at analyzing situations that can be felt, touched, seen, heard, personally observed, or experienced. I'm an open book to the people I trust, but reaching the required trust level may take time. I am eager to please others; I want others to be satisfied and may go out of my way to accommodate them, sometimes to my own discomfort.
A: There are plenty of things in this world that bring my joy, make me happy, or help me feel loved. But the only thing that truly brings me hope—the only thing truly worth putting my hope in—is Jesus Christ. I could write a novel about this. Instead, I will leave you with my favorite Bible verse and an open invitation to ask me any questions you might have on the subject.
"But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain."
1 Corinthians 15:10
May 2010-August 2010
June 4-July 27, 2012
Summer Beach Project
June 1-July 31, 2012
I attended my first year of Beach Project as a Disciple, which means that I was led in Bible study with two other girls by a room leader.
The four of us lived together in the Sandman Motel in Ft. Walton Beach, FL, along with about 200 other college students.
During the day we work at jobs that we have to find on our own. At night we have Bible studies, worship times, and teaching seminars.
On weekends we had themed socials that consisted of assigned group dates, dinner, dancing, and lots of pictures.
June 5-July 26, 2013
Worked at a Costa family franchise in East Destin, FL, as part of Summer Beach Project, a ministry of Campus Outreach.
Worked mostly on the food assembly line, but occasionally worked the front drive thru handing out orders or the back drive thru collecting money.
Summer Beach Project
June 1-July 31, 2013
I attended my second Beach Project as a room leader. Unlike my first year, this meant not only that I was IN a Bible study with other room leaders led by a team leader, but also that I led a Bible study with the disciples who were in my room.
As a room leader you are responsible for spending time with each of the girls in your room, attending weekly room leader training meetings, and setting the example of how to behave in the workplace.

Where do you want to be in 20 years?
Twenty years from now is a concept that sometimes seems hard for me to grasp. I know that—Lord willing—I'll be alive and doing
with my life, but I have a hard time seeing what exactly that something is. If the choice were mine, I want to be married, living in Colorado, doing photography, and mentoring girls. But I know that my life is first and foremost dedicated to Christ, and that above all else I want to be serving Him faithfully both 20 years from now and 80 years from now, regardless of what that might look like.
