The one thing I am passionate about...
One of my greatest passions is photography. I love to shoot in West Michigan, and have been displayed in a gallery as well as been selected by a local arts council as their artist of the month. Along with this comes a passion to be outdoors and to travel some. Most of my work has been in West Michigan and some Wisconsin. I also have a passion for my Christian beliefs and life. I strive to make sure they are consistent. My church family is very important to me as well.I LOOK forward to having a great passion for that special someone in my life who desires that passion, and wants to have that same passion for me.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to take quick trips to Grand Haven to do some photography if the weather is good, and even when it might be bad. Because I shot digitally, I do spend plenty of time working with the computer. I like to be outdoors, take walks, read, spend quiet evenings at home, candlelight dinners. I really like old B & W movies. One of the things I am really looking forward to is spending leisure time with that special someone.
The most influential person in my life has been
Integrity. Of course, that emcompasses a wide range of qualities. Some of the more important ones are honesty, fidelity, respect and tolerance for others, and a love for God.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile. I bring an optimistic approach to life, and I try to find something to smile, and be happy about in almost every situation. Of course, not all situations benefit in that way, and I have the respect to sense that.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The Five Love Languages. Just a very practical, but potent, approach to what makes a relation work. Takes the emphasis off "me" and puts it on the other person.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- First and foremost that my sins are forgiven.
- For health.
- For friends
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
My faith. Many people that I meet don't have a relationship with Christ, and they don't know what they are missing without it. When I meet someone they can't see or sense that faith in someone else, except if they might have it too.
Friends Describe me as
Creative, Generous, Romantic, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I like to do things for/with someone else. Things like cooking, shopping, traveling among many others. I look forward to the time when I will once again do them with someone special.
