Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?:
My family is very important to me. My mother has been the role model of a strong Christian woman, as I was homeschooled all the way through I had the pleasure of seeing the Christian life lived before me since birth.
I love my family, church family, and home, but I am willing to go where God leads me. "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps." Proverbs 16:9
How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?:
I had the blessing of growing up in the church and for as long as I can remember it has been in Reformed Baptist churches. I believe I was saved at a young age.
I started talking to my pastors about baptism when I was around 9, and I was baptized when I was 16.
I am being constantly reminded of God's grace and mercy as he deals with me and the battle with remaining sin. Every devotion and every Sunday brings me words of correction and encouragement.
How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?:
By scripture alone, by faith alone, by grace alone, through Christ alone , to the glory of God alone.
I am hid in Christ, there is nowhere else I would rather be, nor is there anywhere else that could bring my soul peace. Praise the Lord that my eyes have been opened to the Doctrine of Grace, and may my life ever be lived in the knowledge of that truth.
Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?:
I am currently reading through the Psalms, as well as Spurgeon's devotions.
Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?:
That's a hard one.
I admire Paul's love of the brethren.
I appreciate Peter and his seemly silly questions, because of what it teaches us and Jesus's responses to those questions. Then Peter's growth and becoming a cornerstone of the church.
I don't know if this counts as a character, but Proverbs 31's depiction/example of a Godly woman is a favorite as well.
Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?:

I am patiently waiting on the Lord in hope that he would bring a Godly man in to my life.

Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?:
I don't think so
I have many interests and some may seem to be an odd combination. Art and archery. Martial arts and dance. Industrial Maintenance and philosophy.
I want to learn as many things as God brings in to my life so that I can use all I learn for His glory, to see where he can use me with what I have had the opportunity to learn.
Art, martial arts, dance, almost anything outdoors,
