The one thing I am passionate about...
I'm passionate about my relationship with my God, my friends, and my family. I am a person who likes to help others be comfortable when we interact. My family is in New England and I like to go there several times a year. It keeps me in touch with my roots and connected to my loved ones. I love a good thunder storm, a hike or drive in the mountains with my camera, and time with close friends.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to go for long walks (I love to go hiking in the mountains - I grew up with the White Mountains, but have been exploring much Shenandoah and the Blue Ridge), practice different forms of photography, watch movies and hanging out with friends.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a man who is willing to work with me to make the relationship work, which means talking about differences, compromising, and sometimes just submitting. I want to be a Godly woman and support my (future) husband. I'm looking for that man who is ready to lead and love as Christ does.It is important to me that the person I am with sees me completely, beyond appearance and into my heart. That's the way my Father in Heaven sees me and I try to see others in that same way. I desire to be able to look at my life-mate and say "I SEE you".
The first thing people notice about me
Hospitality. At church or in social settings, I try to help people feel comfortable and welcome. People often comment that they love entering church and being greeted by my smile. (It sometimes surprises people to learn that I'm a major introvert!)
The last book I read and enjoyed
I've been reading a lot lately. Mosty Christian fiction about mystery, overcoming the odds, and extending grace.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Salvation, and a God who loves me and has guided my steps.
- Good friends. We've been through a lot and have been blessed through it all.
- My work. I enjoy what I do (even when things get crazy busy), and blessed by God's provision.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I can be funny. I'm the type of person who will surprise you with a "zinger" every once and a while ("It's the quiet ones that suprise you"). I know it's silly, but I also love the 80's music and movies.
Friends Describe me as
Good listener, Hard Working, Loyal, Spiritual
A little more about me
I'm trying to healthy, but I admit it's a struggle. It's something I bring to the Lord and take one day at a time. I'm also currently persuing becoming a foster parent. I love kids and feel that it is important to provide nurturing and security to a child who comes from unfortunate situations.
