The one thing I am passionate about...
I really enjoy baking at home. Whenever the topic arises, I become very animated. I love to share baked goods with friends, family, and especially the elder folks in church who can no longer bake treats for themselves. I'm always interested in new recipes, and ways to enhance current recipes.
I typically spend my leisure time
I like to listen and sing to all kinds of music to relax. I also enjoy baking as a creative outlet. When there is more time, I like to drive out of town to visit small towns in my area. When I'm there, I like to walk in local gardens, pop into small shops, and visit a local restaurant. I also look for interesting characteristics about the town that friends might enjoy seeing some other time.
The most influential person in my life has been
The most important quality I am looking for is integrity. Not only do I need to trust that this person is honest, but that he is genuine. By that I mean that he is generally the same person with his friends and family as his public personae.
The first thing people notice about me
People notice that I am genuinely interested in them.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I recently finished "At Home in Mitford" by Jan Karon. This is the first in a series of books about Father Tim who is the pastor of a small town church. I enjoyed this book because I appreciated the simplicity of the lives of each citizen, their trials that would eventually work out, and the spirit of community. I also just recently finished "Wild at Heart" because quite a number of men have mentioned that they found it helpful. I enjoyed the opportunity to see a man's point of view regarding the struggle many men have in living rewarding lives.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful that Christ is my Savior
- I am grateful for my friends- their support and uncondtional love.
- I am thankful for my job-the fact that I enjoy it and I look forward to interaction with my students.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am an auditory learner. Consequently, I can be distracted by outside noises. So, if someone wants to talk to me below the "chit-chat" level, I prefer to be in quiet surroundings so that I can focus all of my attention on them.

A little more about me
I am looking for a man who is a gentleman and a godly man. I do not desire a relationship with a man who is looking for me to be independent. I need a man who desires to be interdependent in a relationship. I need a man who will put Christ first before anything or anyone else.
