The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about my music! I teach music at the elementary grade level. I also play guitar and write original compositions. My music reflects aspects about myself that are most meaningful to me. I've composed original music for some of my favorite scriptures, including "Psalm 23", "The Beatitudes", "The Greatest is Love".(ICor.13)
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy attending social/cultural/sports events, movies, concerts, and the theatre. I love to read, play guitar, compose/listen to music, etc. I also enjoy a variety of outdoors activities...walking, hiking, biking,ice skating, swimming, canoeing, camping, star-gazing, and a variety of particpatory sports...
The most influential person in my life has been
Shared interests and values that transcend all aspects of our lives... i.e., physically, emotionally, spiritually
The first thing people notice about me
sense of humor, easy-going,good manners...respectful, and a gentleman!
The last book I read and enjoyed
"Jesus, My Next Door Savior" by Max Lucado. I attend Oak Hills Church where Max teaches...he's a great story-teller and makes relevant life applications! I'm presently reading "The Purpose Driven Life". I also enjoy historical biographies, e.g."Lincoln". Cervantes' "Don Quixote" is probably my favorite book. On a tour of George Washington's home at Mount Vernon, his personal copy of this book is displayed and I learned that it was his favorite book! I read daily devotionals "My utmost for His Highest", by Oswald Chambers, "Beside Still Waters" by C.H. Spurgeon
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My three children are probably the single most significant blessing in my life.

- I 'm blessed with an appreciation for music! I endeavor to use my musical talents and abilities to bless others!
