Ok folks…so my single friends are going to start running away from me because I’m getting involved in all kinds of matchmaking shenanigans. And it’s SO MUCH FUN!
The “Show Us Your Singles” edition of Kelly’s Korner blog closes tonight, but not without one last entry: Ryan King. I’ve known Ryan for TWENTY YEARS. Yep, we were 10 when I became friends with Ryan and his twin brother Jonathan back in the 5th grade, and I always had a feeling I’d know them forever. I often think about the people I’ve just lost touch with vs. the people I remain close to. The childhood friends, who have also become dear to my husband now too, remain close because of our connection as brother’s and sisters in Christ. It is friends, like Ryan, that we have something deeper in common with than just hobbies or our current locations.
Ryan currently lives in Lexington, Virginia but has family in the Boone/Linville, NC Mountains area and, of course, a soft spot for Southern Pines/Pinehurst where he grew up (and secretly we’d love for him to move back to NC!!). He is a huge fan of the NCSU Wolfpack, his alma mater, and while he is open to living wherever the Lord leads him, he hopes that it will always be within a few miles of a Bojangles (or at least somewhere with a good chicken biscuit).
While he usually looks like he stepped out of either a J. Crew or outdoor catalog…
You can also find him serving the Lord looking like this because he’s currently the Facilities Manager at Rockbridge, a YoungLife camp in Virginia, NC. So he’s usually installing irrigation, removing trees, planting trees, operating large machinery…you get the idea. Rugged stuff. He gets it done.
Here are a few pics of him with his (fraternal!) twin Jonathan. Ryan is the redhead!
He’s a family guy and, with parents like his, I don’t blame him (they are the most hospitable people, they welcome our friends AND our babies to come and stay for the weekend at their home in the mountains…). Here he is on top of Roan Mountain with his mom, dad and brother.
And most recently with his precious nephew Jackson (Ryan has 2 nephews and 2 nieces).
So…if you are interested or know a sweet girl who likes adventures, kids and has a heart for the Lord then contact me or leave a comment and I’ll put you in touch.
