Everything you need to know about me
I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ my Lord. He saved me when I was about 13. I love the LORD and I'm not afraid to say such a thing. I will strive to live for Him, because He loved me so much to die for me. I know that I will fall, and I have already stumbled too many times to count. I need Him, because I am a horrible sinner just like everyone else. I believe that, I am no better than everyone else, and no one's sin is more grievous than my own. Why? Because in the Lord's eyes, Sin is sin is sin is sin. Even something as simple as a little lie or a stealing a pencil; It is a sin, it says right in His word. We are all the same; sinners in need of His grace, His love, His gift of payment by his shedding of His own blood for the punishment of these sins though He was and is pure, spotless, perfect, and completely without any sin. "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;"Romans 3:23KJV “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23KJV Like in a courtroom, receiving my prison sentence for killing a man or not paying a simple parking ticket, He comes in, pays the fine, and I am free to go. I am free, because he paid for me. I am free in Him by His blood. "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.KJV" Isaiah 53:5 I will continue to sin as my evil flesh loves to do so, but I will make sure that when I see sin, I will turn from it that I might be in fellowship with Him because I love that more than anything. Fellowship, feeling just so clean, pure, peaceful, and happy in the Lord is the best feeling ever. Not that life with the Lord is any easier, no Jesus warns us that people will hate us for following Him, because they don't understand His word, they don't understand Him. But I would rather die serving Him and just simply die than to not care and go on doing whatever I please only to find that He is real. I don't want to take that risk, do you? heart
-Also to be clear. Jesus said to love EVERYONE. Regardless of what they have done or do. When he died on the cross, he didn't die for a select few, he died for EVERYONE. When he died on the cross he was thinking of you, nothing can change His love for you. And since He loves you, I love you too. To be more clear, I do fully believe in sin, but is it really my place to judge? No, the Lord said that is His work; I am only to love everyone as He loves and follow Him. You may private message me if you by any chance you want to talk about anything having to do with my relationship with Christ. Notice, I said relationship, not religion. The two are surprisingly different because having a relationship with someone was a lot better than blindly following a bunch of set rules. : )

I'm random, weird, fun, and pretty easy to get along with. : D I will admit that I can also be a bit of a ditz, so watch out for that. I am a lover of all individuals, music, EVERYTHING. My favorite place to be probably is at church, listening to the Lord's Word. I also like to hang with friends (but am an ambivert), family, pets, and the Lord. The Lord I love most of all and is the most important in my life, after the Lord, my family is the most important in my life.
PLEASE do not use the words "Fa****" or "Re******" around me. I have an Autistic sister and volunteer with those who have mental disabilities. The "R" word is offensive to them and myself. I find the "F" word offensive as well. I also ask that you do not call me any 'Pet names.' Why? You're not my mom, my boyfriend, heck I don't even know you offline. It's offensive, disgusting, and 9/10 ends up sounding sexist (if you happen to be male).
All time favorite music would be Christian rock, but I listen to whatever I'm feeling at that moment. My football teams are the Buffalo Bills (#1 pick) and Green Bay Packers (#2). I love video games; I was a zOMG player and I am an Xbox kind of girl.
I have two sisters, one who is autistic and another who is 12 years my younger. Because of my autistic sister, I've grown up as an only child in some sense. I always wanted an older sibling, specifically an older brother or a twin. Just that close friend who you share life with or talk about anything.
I have a calico/tabby cat Abigail, and a Rhodesian Ridgeback (90%) "puppy" named Brandon.
I was public schooled until 8th grade, then for 9th to 12th I was homeschooled, because I specifically wanted to see how it was. But as of right now, I am a 25yr old striving to follow the Lord's awesome plan for me which is mainly social work related, something I honestly am passionate about. Without Him, I am completely lost, nothing, and have no direction in my life because naturally I am a huge cynic, with diagnosed depression, anger issues, and only the motivation to sit on the couch all day.I have considered turning away from the Lord a few times in the past, but from the reasons above and so many others, I have seen and tasted that the Lord is true. I went to Word of Life Bible Institute to be stronger in the Lord, help me get into "college mode", and to learn more about His word. I have studied and learned about His word a lot over the years, but I have found that you can never stop learning new things about ANYTHING especially the Bible. Currently, I am studying at Davis College to be in the Counseling profession and Department of Social Services. I currently volunteer at a farm that works with disabled kids with a paying job on the side. I would like to possibly in the future help out at places like Teen Challenge and The Children Evangelism Foundation. I've also considered work in the foster systems in Russia, but we'll take things one day at a time.
I highly respect my heritage and always want to learn more especially in regards to Germany. My dad was in the Air Force, (not anymore) having me be born in Germany where I stayed for 3 months. I am also part German via my mother's side of the family ancestry. I love Germany and want to visit it one day.
I am currently beginning my studies of the language.
Over the summer of 2007, I got in a ATV accident. I had a few spinal disks crushed, my wrists sprained for several weeks, and now a permanent glue scar on my chin. I did not experience back pain for the longest time, even at the time of the accident. I was very fortunate, however as of Summer 2012, I have started to get some back problems from that accident. Someone who suffered a similar accident around that same time period, did not have such light injuries, but died from this accident. I suppose the Lord is looking out for me because He has something planned to use me for.
However, because of this accident I would like to offer some advice:
1. Listen to your supervisor.
2. Don't go faster than the recommended speed for your size and height requirement. The smaller you are, the lower the speed setting. (If the ATV has two speed settings, keep to the first/lowest setting).
3. Watch out for rocks and small hills.
