Howdy! My name is Christopher Purvis. I have no idea if I am related to Melvin Purvis (the famous FBI agent), but who knows; I could be, considering I am from the Midwest. My roots trace back to Indiana, but I currently reside in sunny Phoenix, Arizona. I spent 5 years serving in the United States Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. That led me to pursue a degree in Nursing at Grand Canyon University and am scheduled to graduate December 2017. Go Lopes!
I enjoy a multitude of things in life including: fitness, health, motorcycles, CrossFit, endurance running, hiking, fishing, hunting, archery, music, guitar, singing, reading, writing and the list could go on.
I am blessed with an awesome girlfriend named Shaylyn who is amazing and when together always brings a smile to my face. She deeply loves Jesus Christ and encourages and pushes me in my faith.
On any given day you can find me doing one of the following:
1. Physical Fitness (CrossFit, Lifting, Running)
2. Watching a sermon on YouTube or reading my Bible
3. Playing my guitar and jamming out to either worship or country music
4. Taking a nap on my couch (The most likely of the four)
Yes, I watch Duck Dynasty. Those guys are hilarious.
Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior and I am forever thankful for what he did on the cross. I passionately love Jesus and daily strive to, as the writer of Hebrews would say, “run with perseverance the race marked out for us”. Walking, or running, by faith is not always easy, but “without faith it is impossible to please God”. Each day is full of ups and downs so I’m thankful to have an amazing heavenly Father who guides me on this adventure called life.
