Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?

I just moved to Nashville a little over a year ago after coming back from 2 years overseas. There’s been a lot of uprooting and transition, so staying in 1 place is definitely what I need at the moment.

I’m from the Dallas, TX area. My parents and brother are still there. It’s nice to be a just a quick flight away!

How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?

I’m not sure of the exact moment/day I was saved, but my best guess is at summer after 6th grade at a Youth Group camp.  My story is basically that of a Pharisee: I thought I was doing a much better job of obeying God than I actually was.

College was a big fork in the road for me spiritually: Without parents bringing me to church or many Christian friends at the beginning, it was the first time I had to actively pursue a walk with God when it wasn’t part of the culture.

Since then, I’ve been thankful to be part of a couple really solid churches and see God’s wisdom in the church and Christian community.

How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?

To be honest, I couldn’t have told you what the Doctrines of Grace were until the end of college. When I decided to look into it more with the person discipling me, it was the first time I learned there were actual terms, different interpretations, etc,

In ministry, it’s a huge encouragement that at the end of the day, it’s not about gimmicks and techniques that I might do to win someone to Christ, but that God is sovereign over everything, even my mistakes.

Not gonna lie: I’m a little leery about getting on a Reformed dating site. Yes, that’s where my convictions are, but I think it’s also really important to be gracious with others who come to different conclusions. I’m not a “hyper-Calvninist” and don’t love the idea of someone who is.

Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?

Generally, yes. Not a perfect track record of course, but regular intake of God’s word is important to me. I think it was a light bulb moment for me when I realized that walking with God & acknowledging Him throughout the day is just as important as a set aside quiet time.

I’m currently going through a study on Proverbs.

Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?

I guess this is the type of ice breaker question you get on a Christian dating website, haha.

Fun fact: I go by my middle name, but my first name is actually Lydia. When my Mom was in her 20s, she was trying to navigate what it meant to be a Christian businesswomen and didn’t have good examples around her. She was so encouraged by the story of Lydia as someone who was hardworking and successful at work but more importantly in her faith, ministry, and hospitality. She decided that if she ever had a daughter, she would name her Lydia. I

Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?

Generally, yes. My 20s have been a very rich and full decade that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I knew that going overseas was going to prolong singleness by a few years and decided it was still worth it. I’ve been very thankful for a church family that honors singleness instead of treating it just as a holding pattern until you get married.

What are four qualities your friends would attribute to you?

This feels weird to describe myself, but here goes:

Fun- My nickname in the family is “The Fun Captain.” I’m a classic Enneagram 7 and enjoy adventures big and small. Picture a more chill, less political version of Leslie Knope from Parks and Rec. 😉

Hardworking- Willing to do whatever it takes to get a job done, even if I have to learn new skills along the way to make it happen. (Like that time I started a side hustle as a wedding florist)

Kind- I’ve grown over the years at being able to step back and see things from another perspective before getting angry.

Intentional- I like to be purposeful in how I weave friendships, commitments, goals, etc together. I

What are three things you are most thankful for?

1) The new house my roomie and I just moved into. Lots of space to host, and finally a yard!

2) God’s kindness over the past year and a half: It’s been crazy hard to move back from overseas, job search in a new city during a pandemic, etc, but He’s been so faithful to provide.

3) Nashville’s parks & nearby hiking. There’s so many and I love to get out and explore them.

Describe the character and personality traits you enjoy in another person? What are yours?

In someone I date, being humble is very important to me. Being a good conversationalist, the ability to approach tough conversations with nuanced graciousness, someone who likes to have fun.

In general friendships, I like to have broad range personality types…I like learning from people who are different than me.

Other than your parents, who has been the most influential person in your life and how?

A woman in who discipled me in college. She was so patient with my hot-mess freshman self and we have been close friends for years. She taught me just as much through her life and example as she did with her words.

What contributed to your previous relationship/marriage ending?

Was dating a guy long distance in Portland last Spring. On paper, it made total sense, and we each “checked a lot of boxes” in what the other person was looking for. Ultimately, it just wasn’t what the Lord had in store, but long distance during a pandemic isn’t something I’m rushing to repeat.

How long have you been on your own since and what did you to do get through it?

I’ve been single far more than I’ve been in relationships. Gone on dates, but not much that has really stuck long term.

I am pretty extroverted and have a good support network of brothers and sisters in Christ, so I typically don’t feel lonely when I’m in a relationship. I’m thankful for others who teach and remind me to not put my identity in a relationship status.

Favorite lines from movies, poems, songs, hymns or Scripture you would like to tell us about?

Will fill this in later. I just need to hit save for now so I can go on a run!

What type of work do/did you do?

5 years of college ministry in Washington DC

2 years of Missions/Managing an English Institute in the Middle East

1 year as a Business Analyst in Nashville, TN

And I have a side hustle as a wedding florist 🙂

How long have you been/were you in that line of work? Do/you enjoy it?

I LOVED my jobs in college ministry and overseas. I purposefully switched to a more traditional business for several reasons, even though I don’t enjoy it as much. It’s a great opportunity, but also a lot of learning how to be faithful at a job I don’t particularly enjoy.

Do you have any life-long goals? What are they?

Ministry to the Kurdish community in my neighborhood

And a good prank every so often 😉

Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?

Not that I can think of at the moment
