The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about enjoying life and living in spiritual freedom with emotional balance. I am passionate about raising my children in a healthy environment, building relationships with family and friends, growing them, and creating good memories. I am passionate about helping others, and keeping myself fit.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to hike on streets and trails (enjoy company, talking while doing so), traveling to new places for adventure, photography, reading (particularly when it's raining outside), talking with friends, volunteer activities, playing the guitar, a little hunting and fishing, grilling, listening to music, and visiting art museums. For vacations I like to relax - the mountains and the beach are favorite places to do so.
The most influential person in my life has been
If I had to pick just one quality, it would be balance, and all that quality entails: enjoying life in the moment while looking toward the future; acting with integrity, character, honesty; when I mess up, being able to forgive me after I apologize and change my actions; able to share what?s on her mind and what she?s feeling; confidence; faith; living under grace. Will anyone on this earth actually display these qualities all the time ? nope. :-) But a balanced person will much of the time.
The first thing people notice about me
People notice my smile, curiosity, intelligence, that I listen, try to help when appropriate (sometimes listening is more important), and have a positive outlook on life and situations.
The last book I read and enjoyed
'The Unofficial Guide to Maui', 'The Ragamuffin Gospel' by Brennan Manning, 'Love and Respect' by Emerson Eggerichs, ?A Scandalous Freedom? by Steve Brown. The book on Maui is helping me plan a vacation. Manning's book focuses on true grace, and all of its implications. Eggerichs book is insightful and keys in on different gender needs; Brown's book focuses on living our faith.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am thankful that I am a follower of Christ.
- I am thankful for my children.
- I am thankful to have really close friends.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a lot more fun to be around than people might first imagine ? my humor evolves to fit the time and place, but tends to focus on life in the moment, wit, or quirkiness, all in good-nature...I like to laugh. :-)
Friends Describe me as
Genuine, Good listener, Hard Working, Kind
A little more about me
I am trustworthy and giving of both my time and attention to those I hold dear. I have been told that I think deep thoughts, but don't really feel that way. I have very good friends and kids who I really enjoy sharing my life with. I take my promises seriously, want a healthy relationship where each person enjoys looking after the other's needs without losing themselves, and am willing to invest the necessary time to develop trust.
