My faith is essential. I believe that our purpose in life is to know God and to enjoy him forever.
I also love literature, the arts, big cities, long walks, road trips, plane tickets, no-foam lattes, deep conversations and people who make me laugh. I believe that we should each be defined by so much more than what we do for a living. I believe in finding your purpose in something greater than yourself. I believe in having less stuff and more time.
A potential match is someone who:
... loves and follows Jesus, believing him to be the resurrected son of God. (This doesn't mean he's "religious" though. Super religious people are often nothing like Jesus.)
... can make me laugh.
... wants to talk (a lot) and share stories about where we've been and how we're making sense of it all.
... has a creative outlet or at least appreciates the arts.
... takes a proactive role in his health and fitness.
... knows that incessant texting isn't the way to get to know someone.
