25 Random Facts About Me

My brother and I

My dear mom and I
(don't we look like sisters?  She looks so young!)


I have noticed on different girls' blogs that they include random facts about themselves and I enjoy reading them, so I thought it would be sweet to post random facts about me too!

Twenty Five Random Facts About Me:

  • My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip.  Since I rarely eat dairy products, I discovered a way of making the healthy, dairy-free version of this dessert!  Soy or Almond Milk vanilla ice cream from a natural foods store and a natural mint chocolate candy bar shredded in it.  Mix and enjoy!
  • I love hearing the Bible read out loud.
  • Spending time in prayer with others is easier for me to share what is on my heart with the Lord than if I pray by myself.
  • I like taking walks in the rain and love seeing stars in the evening.
  • I don't really like sugar and do not add salt to anything.
  • I love elegance and my room is decorated in all white...with a splash of blue and silver.
  • If I could, I would walk four miles each day.  It is my favorite form of exercise!  Especially speed walking and walking uphill.
  • I am very organized and cannot stand clutter.
  • I really enjoy classical concerts and find going to museums to be a great and simple way of spending time.
  • I love the Solar System.  It is fascinating and really shows the majesty of God.  Quite awe-inspiring!
  • I love feminine attire such as cardigans, scarves, Espadrille sandals, skinny jeans with boots, and pretty coats and sweaters.
  • I like laying out on our trampoline during the day (when I am able) to relax, think, and pray.
  • I enjoy meaningful, God honoring, life discussions and am a deep thinker.
  • Christmas is my favorite holiday for a number of reasons.  I love Christmas music, seeing neighborhoods filled with pretty lights, and realizing the wonder and beauty of God's precious Son - Jesus is the reason for the season!
  • Driving is freeing for me and I like taking drives with my mom to see beautiful homes.
  • I utterly hate false doctrine and how it is leading so many astray.  People don't realize the effects their preaching has on others.
  • I have a burden for people who choose to live the homosexual lifestyle, teenagers, and kids who are made fun of in school.  I care deeply for those who engage in self-mutilation and care about people with eating disorders.  Being trapped is devastating and being in bondage to anything is awful.
  • I feel sad and overwhelmed at the thought of those who have an addiction to pornography.  This is such a terrible addiction and ruins lives!
  • I love giving and receiving cards.  Giving gifts to others is something I really enjoy.
  • My brother is one of my favorite people.  For a teenage guy, he is different than others his age, is mature, knows a lot about God, and has a teachable spirit.  He cares about simple things in life, we have many meaningful conversations, and he is a well-rounded and great kid!
  • Worship music is my favorite.  It is beautiful!
  • It is relaxing for me to practice acoustic guitar even though I don't actually know how to play (haha) and I love the sound of acoustic guitar.
  • I have zero interest in watching TV and enjoy Christian lectures and debates.
  • I have always been mature for my age.
  • My mom has been a godly example and good influence as far back as I can remember.  During my teenage years, I remember her teaching me certain things about guys, she always seeks to point my siblings and I back to God and His word, is not interested in worldly (and fleeting) passing pleasures, has a gentle, kind, welcoming, gracious, caring, sweet, and accepting heart and I call her the energizer bunny because despite what she has been through in life, she "keeps going and going."  We laugh a lot together, she is funny, and I love her dearly and give God praise for the mom He gave me.
