The one thing I am passionate about...
My faith is the crux of my passion. It is central to my life and to my identity. I strive to bring glory to God in everything I do, so that others may see Christ in me. I am also passionate about history, and loving children!
I typically spend my leisure time
I am, by trade and by hobby, a historian. As such, I enjoy researching history and genealogy, writing about it, visiting cemeteries, libraries, archives, museums. I also have an insatiable appetite for the written word. I love to read, and I love to write creatively.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who shares my faith, and a man who loves God more than he loves me. I want his heart and his desire to be to follow God and seek God's will for his life. I am looking for a gentleman who is happy with the simple things in life, and who is confident in who God created him to be. Someone I can be myself with, and who encourages me to be a better woman, and who I can laugh with and share life with. I would love a strong leader who has good old-fashioned and traditional values. I'm not looking for a knight in shining armor; I would rather have a man who has had his mettle tested. Loving children is a must!
The first thing people notice about me
They tend to notice that I am more of an introvert, and am typically pretty shy at first. Or, depending on the circumstances, I am highly sensitive, and am often the one caring for others.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"In The Blood", a genealogical thriller. It appealed to me because I like to be surprised by an author's creativity, and I love this genre because I enjoy reading about genealogy and connecting the past to the present.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith. I grew up in a Christian family & had many great spiritual role models.
- My family. I am very close with my family, and miss them immensely when we are apart.
- A good education. This has opened so many doors for me, and I love to help others learn!
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Is that there is more to me than meets the eye. On the surface I may appear very simple, but I can be very complex. For instance, many people would describe me as easy-going, but I am actually a very passionate person and have very strong opinions and likes that often surprise people.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
My roots go deep in the Midwest, and I am more comfortable in a rural settling than an urban one. Autumn is my favorite season, and I love seeing the stars in the night sky. I am traditional and old-fashioned, and I am looking forward to caring for my family and raising them in the love and knowledge of the Lord. I'm a romantic at heart, and I love children and teaching them!
