I'm Lauren Adams, and what started as a simple personal blog blossomed into a ministry. I pray that you'll be encouraged in some way through my blog posts, and through your own personal study time with God...BUT I DON'T WANT TO STOP THERE!I want to show you how the Word of God can come alive in your life, and my hope is that you believe it so much that you start living it.My ultimate prayer is that you'll meet God for everything He is.
Who are you?
(I figured you would probably want to know, lol.) I am a graduate of the University of South Carolina with a B.S. degree in Information Technology, and I am currently working full-time in my field.
Spare time activites/hobbies?
I attend my home church, and am an active member there in the music ministry and the youth ministry. When I'm not at church or work, I'm usually either at home or spending time with friends. I also enjoy my time spent to encourage you through my posts and videos on my Not Your Average Girl accounts!
Name one person that is not a family member that has had the greatest influence in your life.
My church's former Youth Pastor! He pushed me to take opportunities that would help my grow as a believer. He saw the potential in me, even when I wanted to cheat myself from walking into God's perfect will for my life. I'm so grateful!
What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever eaten?
Deer meat. Not very adventurous, you'd probably say. lol
What is your favorite TV show and why?
If I want a laugh, it's between Martin and The Wayans Bros. I'm an old head. If I want to be engaged, I can watch Family Feud for hours, and not be bored. That's just me!
If you could take a vacation right now, where would you go?
On a cruise to anywhere! I've been twice, but I can go again!
Do you have any siblings? What are/were they like?
I have one younger brother. That's it! He's only a year and some months younger than me, so we're pretty close in age. (Side note: He designs websites! If you like what you see, contact me, and I'll get him in touch with you!)
What's your favorite Scripture? Why?
This changes every time I answer this, but it would probably have to be Deuteronomy 31:8. Yeah. Let's go with that. That's when God was raising up a new leader to lead the Israelites in possessing the land that God had promised them (Joshua). It's reassuring and very applicable to my life!
Name one thing that not many people know about you.
I secretly have rhythm, but I tell everybody I can't dance because it's not the way I prefer to express myself. lol
Why do you believe in Jesus?
Because He makes sense of everything I can't make sense of. He sees in me what I can't see in myself (in and of myself), and He gives me purpose and a reason to live. For those reasons, I owe Him my life <3
