The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my children and watching them grow and succeed. I love having a chance to affect lives by teaching young children. I love to garden and am very passionate about music. I have a strong passion for doing the right thing and helping others in need. I find it difficult to stand by when I see someone doing dishonest or harmful things. Truthfulness, faithfulness, and honesty e deep passions as well. I am developing a strong passion for the Lord and need someone who is pursuing the same journey.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy the going to the beach and the lake. I love camping and going animal watching or exploring. Taking a long walk, enjoying a quiet evening, watching the sunset are just as much fun to me as going dancing, traveling, or going to sporting events. I love football and enjoy going to games or watching on tv. Gardening is a joy to me. I love working in the soil and watching things come to life.
The most influential person in my life has been
Honesty and integrity. I cannot abide lying or cheating in any manner. I expect people to say what they mean and mean what they say. I am always telling my boys that a person's character is determined by the way they handle adversity. So, I guess I am looking for someone with a strong moral character as well.
The first thing people notice about me
They usually notice that I make people feel accepted and at ease. I have been told that I am very non-judgmental. I feel that all people are worth knowing and have something to contribute.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book I read was a Stephen King novel called Cell. It was about a "pulse" that was sent through all cell phones at one time which basically destroyed the free will of all who heard it. He is my favorite author and I guess I like his books because of the vivid imagery and the creepy nature of his writing. I love horror stories and movies...but not gore or violence.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That God is a constant source of strength for me
- The relationship I have with my family
- Having a rewarding job that allows me time to spend with friends and family
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I am not as strong as they think I am. Sometimes, I wish people realized that I need TLC just as much as they do.
Friends Describe me as

A little more about me
I am generally fun to be with and love good conversation. I love to do a variety of activities and enjoy just spending time with other people. I am truly devoted to those I love and am deeply genuine, honest, and when I give my heart away, I give it all. I feel things deeply and enjoy people who are as committed and devoted as I am in the important areas of their lives. I do believe there is much more to life than work and money. I know it is important but my life does not revolve around work.
