The one thing I am passionate about...
My relationship with Jesus. I fail all the time and I'm far from perfect, but my desire to become a better Christian, not just a churchgoer is probably the biggest passion in my life. I'm passionate about my job. I'm passionate about intimate, deep conversation especially about spiritual topics, about which I can be very opinionated. I also love talking about things of a scientific/technical nature. I love sharing what I know and have frequently been told that I would make a good teacher. I am also passionate about motorcycle riding, the shooting arts, hunting fishing and snowboarding. Oh, and hot Christian girls that like those things:)
I typically spend my leisure time
Riding my motorcycle, listening to music, remodeling my house, playing the drums in the worship team at church, reading, cooking, (I can bake a pretty good apple pie from scratch) gardening/tending my fruit trees, listening to some more music and hanging out with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
First, faith in God.(Christian) Second would be common interests. For example, I like building, and shooting guns. I realize that many women do not like guns. I do a lot of shooting at work, and I enjoy my job. If you don't know how to shoot, I'd love to teach you. I like hunting as well, so you've got to be completely ok with that. I'd like to find a down to earth girl that will be my best friend, but can also rock my socks when she wants to ;-) Oh, and if she can sing or play a musical instrument or both...... that would be awesome. PS: If you love Lady Gaga or Sex and the City, I'm NOT interested!
The first thing people notice about me
I'm not really sure, probably my smile...but that's appearance. I can be pretty animated sometimes, I use my whole face-actually my whole body to express myself, especially when I'm excited about something. I've been compared with Jim Carrey once or twice in that respect. I've been told I have a soothing voice as well, though I'm sure that's only true some of the time.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"God's Smuggler" by/about 'Brother Andrew', a former Dutch Army Commando turned Pastor/Evangelist/Missionary who served God by smuggling Bibles into Communist lands for decades. It stirred in me the thrill of doing something dangerous, but with a holy purpose and with the protection and blessing of the Lord. I could even say that I felt a pull, a beckoning to some kind of non-traditional service to the Lord. I can't stand monotony and boredom. A daily grind will kill me. Otherwise, I'm in the middle of "Evidence for Christianity" by Josh McDowell at the moment. I should have read this a long time ago.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My faith
- My parents/childhood
- My job
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a big heart, but people don't notice it right away because it's wrapped in flesh and hiding under my shirt all the time. Measuring it requires some detailed surveying which can be time consuming, but is lots of fun...
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
Feel free to send me an icebreaker! About purpose, destiny and the girl with the golden hair: I used to believe in finding the girl I'm "meant to be with". I now abandon that whole concept in favor of one that a good match is ultimately up to God, not up to me or even Eharmony. I am not worried about meeting the "wrong" girl or missing the "right" girl by either having or not having this account, by looking or not looking, I don't place my faith in eHarmony, and I don't place my hope in marriage. Jesus is both, and He has never let me down. So don't worry about finding Mr Right. If you know Jesus you've already found him.
