Chosen Attribute : Patient Persistence
Definition: Determined to do or achieve something without care for how long or hard one must work for it.

My definition: A continued effort, with determination showed in every movement, much like salmon swimming upstream to spawn, they stick to it, it doesn’t matter how far they have to go or how long it takes, they will get there, even if it costs them their own life.
Patient persistence is important to me as a hockey player every time I step on the ice or into the weight room. I work relentlessly, unyielding, never-ceasing, never showing or promising any reduction of severity, intensity, strength, or pace. Patience is key: Wait patiently for your opportunity. When it comes do not change a thing: Stay persistent. More important than hockey, patient persistence is how I live out my Christian faith. The bible teaches that the reason that God doesn’t take us up to heaven the very moment we accept Christ as our personal savior is because He leaves us here on earth to fulfill a mission, His mission, the Great Commission. While here on earth I strive to be persistent in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone that God brings into my sphere of influence. But I also need to be patient with those who don’t accept Jesus right away because God can change their hearts over time. The Lord God is a patient persistent God, and I strive to be patiently persistent in prayer and in spreading His message.

What is your favorite scripture verse and why?
I love the entire written inspired word of God, but if I had to choose just one verse to be my current favorite it would have to be Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” I love this verse because it clearly displays the gospel. I am a sinner, God can’t stand my disobedience and my sin, He has to punish sin, someone has to pay the penalty for my sin. I am so thankful that Jesus has paid my debt for me on the cross of Calvary! Thank you for the Free Gift of grace, I did nothing to deserve it!

What else should we know about you (brothers, hobbies, goals, college)?
I feel so blessed to have the family that I have. Especially my Mom (Laura), my Dad (Mark), and my two sisters (Sara and Dana). I love them all. I thank God for my girlfriend Sophie every single day: as she is a gift from God. God has used her in numerous ways to touch my heart and I know He will continue to do so for the rest of my life. I only love her more everyday. I am an avid outdoorsman who enjoys hunting, fishing, camping, and wakeskating. I plan to graduate from Ohio State in 2013 with a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering. I would also like to give a shout out to my roommates, I live for four Christian brothers who encourage me daily: love you Cory, Corey, Taylor, and Kevin.
