Howdy! My name’s Alexandra Anderson, and I am ecstatic about going on this journey and sharing it with you!
a little about me:
I am a sophomore at Texas A&M University, studying Tourism Management. Gig’ em.
I have been blessed with an incredible family: parents Dal and Jennifer who have been married for 25 years and have been an amazing example of a loving Christ-centered marriage and have shown me what it means to live my life for Christ. siblings Alyssa and Blake. I am the middle child. Alyssa is 3 years older than me, one of my best friends, and married to Austin who is like my older brother. She is beautiful, hilarious, and completely different than me. I have learned so much from her, and she is such a fabulous example of a Godly woman. Blake is 6 years younger than me, and despite the fact that he is on the verge of driving and is now taller than me, he will ALWAYS be my baby brother. He is awesome, like seriously amazing. He loves the Lord so much and is constatnly teaching me what it is like to live a life that exudes Christ.
I have also been blessed with the most amzing group of friends. My best friends have been my best friends since before we could walk and will be my best friends until we can no longer walk due to extremely old age. I am more myself with that group of girls than I am with anyone else. They have been seriously been the greatest blessing to my life.
things I love:
cooking & baking: so much that I plan on going to culinary school when I graduate. My roommates and I literally make cookies or cupcakes EVERY week. It’s awful.
watching a good movie: I am a movie fanatic. I love going to the moveis, especially when they are only $4 in College Station. I am a sucker for cheesy 90’s movies. I have a lot of favorites, but for some reason I think my absolute favorite is 10 Things I Hate About You. I honesly can’t explain why.
listening to music/going to concerts/discovering a new musician or song: I have always loved music. I wish that I could sing or dance or play piano or something cool but since I can’t, I fully support and celebrate those who can. Going to concerts is one of my favorite things to do. I’m always up for some live music!
reading a really good book: ok I’m a nerd, and I accept that. Favorites: Harry Potter (duh.), Mark of the Lion series, The Great Gatsby, and the Hunger Games. I am currently reading Radical and would DEFINITELY recommend it.
sports: Mavs. Rangers. Cowboys (even though they constantly break my heart).
NYC: seriously, I think a piece of my heart will always be in New York City. And I got to see the magnificant Christmas tree this year!
Most importantly, I love Jesus Christ with all my heart and am so thankful for what He is doing in my life. I have have been learning so much about Him in the past few years and am so thankful. I am learning that absolutely nothing in this world matters more than bringing Him glory. In everything we do, God should be glorified. Period. He has given me the amazing opportunity to go on this Global Journey to share His great love to a lost and hurting world. For we are called to go and make disciples of all nations (Matt 28:19) so that’s exactly what I’m going to do.
