I’m just a young person, trying to navigate life and follow God’s plan. I drink too much coffee and read a lot, but not enough, books. My passions range from the Bible, to science, to literature, to just about anything. I love learning- history, English, French, physics, whatever. I love acquiring knowledge and figuring out how things work. I was a synchronized swimmer in high school, but please never ask me to show you my skills– I don’t have any, I promise. I do, however, have 26 books of the Bible memorized and am always working on learning more. I was a Free Methodist Bible Quizzer for 7 years, and I now coach and Quizmaster. Dark chocolate and peanut butter are the key to my heart. I am hard of seeing, due to ocular albinism, and it’s a daily fight to not let that define me or take over my life. And so far, I have won more of those fights as I have lost. I am an unapologetic nerd who loves gaining knowledge, reading, and solving complex differential equations, but also loves sleeping, adventuring, and watching football. I try to live my life to honor God, follow His will, and be His light for the world.
I don’t know exactly where God has called me, and what He has called me to, but I know Him. And, I know that “His thoughts are not my thoughts, nor His ways my ways.” And, above all, I know His Word– His Words of Love.
“But sometimes, words are hard. And sometimes, the Words of Love can be even harder. And sometimes it takes words of love to help you understand what love is and who Love is. But man, am I grateful for all kinds of words of love…” -Rebekah Distaffen, Words of Love. February 17 2018.
