    James 1:2-4, "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.

    If problem solving could be a hobby, that would definitely be it. I love solving puzzles, word search, IQ questions, etc., as it just gives me great sense of achievement!
