One sentence that describes you: I picture myself as one of a kind, nothing less than a child of God but possibly much much more.
One fun/interesting fact about you: I’ve swam for about 13 years now.
How long have you been a wisdom hunter (passionate follower of Christ)? Since I was 12 years old, so around 6 years now.
What wisdom have you been learning from scripture lately? I recently did a study on dating as a Christian teen. And I’ve learned, through scripture and study, that I have to completely become the wise person I want to be and that God is making me before I can truly begin my search for “Miss Right.” I don’t want my wife to want the person I am now, rather for her to fall in love with the Evan that God makes me.
Wisdom Hunters is based on Proverbs 13:20, what is the most impactful word of wisdom you have received from a fellow wisdom hunter? Pray. I’ve learned over the past few years that prayer is our gateway to God. It’s the simplest and easiest way to talk with Him and to get things off our chest. Prayer moves people, heals people, and simply grows us closer to the Lord.
Any tips for new wisdom hunters? For new Christians I would say that surrounding yourself with other believers is key. When surrounded with people who are also growing with God, you will too. And the further you stay from people who aren’t living right, the harder it is for Satan to attack you.
We’ve got to ask…why are you a fan of Wisdom Hunters blog and Facebook fan page? I follow Wisdom Hunters on twitter and love getting little bits of advice throughout the day. And the best part is that it’s scripturally based.
Any last piece of wisdom you want to share with your fellow wisdom hunters? Keep your faith close and allow it to grow larger and larger. One of the most powerful verses to me is Luke 17:6 “He replied, ‘If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.”

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today – January 18, 2020 Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” 1 Peter 5:5 If I’m brutally honest, most of the time I think that I am [...]
