The one thing I am passionate about...
I am most passionate about my relationship with Jesus Christ and ministering to others. I am passionate about being creative. Just give me something to make, figure out, or cook, and I'm happy. I am happiest when I'm doing something outdoors rather than indoors. I love skiing, swimming, gardening, duck hunting, digging for artifacts, hiking, actually, just about anything outside. It goes without saying that my family and children are a very large part of my life. I'm really just passionate about life in general! I will also give up food for music! Just in case you're wondering...I'll be passionate about that special someone when I find him.
I typically spend my leisure time
I value my quiet time/devotional time. Apart from that,I prefer being with people. I love the outdoors, and will give most anything a whole hearted try! I am comfortable in a formal setting, or sweating in the yard pulling weeds. I am happy sitting on the sofa with a good movie, dining out (or in), socializing with friends, or doing something spontaneous like riding a zip line. I'm very creative and artistic, so yes, I like craft shows and art galleries. I like to travel, and hope to do lots of that in the future. I like to stay as physically fit as my time will allow. Oh, and I have a really cool little schnauzer, that enjoys my company!
The most influential person in my life has been
Gosh, it's hard to limit this to just one quality! I guess I am looking for someone who is passionate about their relationship with Christ, because if they seek after Him, all of the other qualities like kindness, honesty, humor, and hard work would fall into place.
The first thing people notice about me
People tell me they notice my self assurance. I'm not cocky, or over bearing; I just have great people skills, and I'm comfortable with who I am.
The last book I read and enjoyed
The most recent book that I've read was "The Five Love Languages", by Gary Chapman. Everyone expresses and interprets love in one of five ways. Knowing a person's love language will help to better serve them, and deepen relationships. This was an awesome read, and has actually helped me walk away from some major issues of bad relationships!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- my relationship with Jesus Christ
- my children
- my health
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
People are so concerned with outward appearances, that most seldom notice people for who they really are on the inside. I have good people skills, but I wish they could see that I really DO care deeply about them...even the testy ones! I just love people. Most never really see beyond the surface issues.

A little more about me
My life motto right now is, "I'll keep drinkin' from my saucer,'cause my cup overflows." I have been through a LOT of tough things in my life, but I am an overcomer.God has truly blessed me, and I'm looking forward to what's in store. I hope to be snow skiing when I'm 90!
