I'm a K-8 art teacher; it is not uncommon for me to leave work colorfully adorned with paint/plaster/clay, often unbeknown to me. I'm an avid runner. I cannot resist a round of witty banter. I'm undeniably feisty. I have a playful personality. I'm often responsible for initiating snowball/mud/clay fights; unfortunately, my aim is terrible when I laugh, but I have a pretty mean tackle that compensates for my wasted ammunition. I have a mischievous streak, yet deep down I'm a good girl. I care deeply about others and my feelings naturally sync with their own: If they hurt I hurt with them; if they are happy I share their happiness. When a person engages in random acts of kindness I find it, quite simply, hot. I believe having a good sense of humor is a magical remedy for making life's hard moments sweeter. Above all things I love my Savior, my Redeemer, my Physician, my Forever Friend: Jesus Christ. His selfless life inspires me to love unrestrained, to live to give, and to seek after all that is good. I fall short in my endeavor to echo His goodness, yet I will never stop striving because my heart belongs to Him.
