Definately out-going. My sister says super outgoing... well, not super-super, just super.

15. Do you tan easily?
Don't ask this question. It's a sore subject. I don't. Arghhh!!! I think I am slowly coming to grips with it... for some reason when I try to tell myself that white skin is beautiful, I don't feel very consoled.

6. Favorite restaurant?
Well, I just went to Olive Garden for the first time about a month ago and totally fell in love! But, they don't exactly take pocket change, so my budget better affords God-Father's Pizza. I am a total sucker for pizza... I could eat it once a day!!
7. What do you do most often when you're bored?
Read my Bible or clean bathrooms. Ok. So much for sounding like Miss-Spiritual-or-Domestic. Seriously tho', I love talking on the phone. I also like being on the internet.
8. Favorite kind of music? Favorite group?
Contemporary Christian and bluegrass. Fav group... I really like Casting Crowns but most of the genre. Not head-banging Christian rock tho!
9. What is something that you would like to accomplish/do before you die?
Good question! Honestly, I really want to get married and have kids, both my own and adopted! I don't want to die without knowing what that's like. But really more than that, I want to be able to live a life that honors Christ and then to get there with Him and hear those words "Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord!" So, whether that happens as a single person or married, whether here in the States or in some back corner of a third-world country, I want to live to the hilt of every situation, for the glory of God!
Sam asked:
1. Are you sure ANY question?
Ahem. Yes. Just so they follow Phil. 4:8

Okay... here's my question, if you're still taking them! =) I have noted with amazement, that you and your siblings live life with passion. In everything! And I love that. So many large families (in my experience) have a huge string of forlorn, listless, hardworking, or at best, cheerful and fun-loving kids. But you guys have such a passion for every part of life. Why is that?? I mean, I know that the life of Christ in us gives us a reason to live, and hopefully, a passion for whatever is on His heart, but is there something more than that? Okay, now that my question is as clear as mud, =), I'll await your answer!!
