I typically spend my leisure time
Playing video games with or without the kids, watching a good movie or show, and being outside when the weather is nice. I also like to read or work on one of many projects around the house. I enjoy going out with friends on occasion.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is genuine and doesn't put up a front. Sincerity, integrity, and honesty are equally important.
The first thing people notice about me
A demeanor that says "I take everything too seriously." It isn't true. God gave me a serious face!
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read quite a bit. I am currently reading Into The Buzzsaw by Gore Vidal. It is a book about how the "free press" is not what it used to be or what it is supposed to be. I enjoy investigative literature. That said, there's nothing wrong with good fiction. John Grisham's work is very entertaining.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children. They are happy, healthy, and fun to be with. They are the best.
- My physical and spiritual health. God has been good to me. I am grateful for what I have.
- The events in my life that have gotten me to where I am today.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am a good listener and really enjoy intelligent/stimulating conversation. I'm not one who has to be right all the time. Healthy debate and discussion are important to a good relationship. Often times, agreeing to disagree is the way to go.
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Easy-Going, Loyal, Perceptive
