The one thing I am passionate about...
I enjoy helping people, especially those who are trying to make a difference in their lives,in improving their outlook, and in growing. I love to be that someone who can really bring something positive and beneficial into other people's lives; something that could be the added difference in changing those hard places they're experiencing. I don't want to be a "fixer" but a mentor.
I typically spend my leisure time
Outdoor activities which includes riding horses, camping, fishing,(including fly fishing), and enjoying classic/antique car shows. I enjoy dinner with friends either at home or out, day trips, movies, antique shops & farmers markets, love music, going to musicals/plays, reading, walking, swimming & gardening(when weather permits). I love to travel to the beach & take it all in, explore mountain parks, & going to scenic places. I have been in worship teams & been part of a church choir; singing praise to God is something I love.
The most influential person in my life has been
Be honest, genuine, kind-hearted, open, willing to communicate with your heart and not only your mind. Also, I do love a good sense of humor, a quick wit, and smiling eyes.
The first thing people notice about me
My laughter. Many people have told me that they like my laugh, that it makes them feel good whenever they're around me.
The last book I read and enjoyed
A book written by Lori Wick, called "Sabrina"; it's set in western theme, in late 1800's in Montana. The heroine is gutsy, determined to not give up, has hope, is a hard-worker, and is a Christian (fiction is my favorite to read.) Another book, "The Light & The Glory", written by Peter Marshall & David Manuel. It's sub-title is "Did God have a plan for America?" Was a great & informative read; I gave a copy to my oldest brother, & he then bought the book for our dad.
The three things which I am most thankful for

A little more about me
I am a country-born gal & I feel fortunate to have grown up around farms & country living. I am easy-going, open and honest. I'm mostly conservative but have an appreciation for knowledge. I love flowers, blue skies, mountain streams, the Redwoods in No. CA., and being at the beach to just relax and enjoy it all. I am looking forward to the possibilities to truly get to know someone who has similar likes and interests and wants to share their life, heart, laughter, and, if they have children, share their family too, with me.
