The one thing I am passionate about...
Knowing how necessary God is to having a satisfying, successful life. Doing my best to live according to Christ's principles(walking my talk), and thereby being a witness to others that drives them to want to know more about Him.
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, music, movies, camping (I love to camp), visiting with friends.Reading tastes run to sci-fi, romance, suspense, Dave Barry. But I also have an English degree and am well read in the classics. I prefer British writers. They are so funny.Movie tastes run to comedy, sci-fi, action, drama, and of course romance. I also love singing, sometimes in a choir (the Messiah is a favorite), though I've done barbershop too. I play piano and guitar.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone with a mature and growing relationship with the Lord. Someone who truly lives what he believes.
The first thing people notice about me
I smile and laugh a lot. Men often comment on my voice...it's deep and husky, but I also sound younger than I am. People say I have a nice sense of style, but it's not always the same. I can be formal, conservative, or a little young and quirky, but nothing that makes me look ridiculous.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read a light short romance. Just before that I read a very serious Christian book on a topic of a personal nature. It was very deep, and made me want to share it with family.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- That my immediate family are all Christians, my parents, children, sisters.
- That I attend a church where you can truly be yourself, and be accepted and supported no matter what.
- That the most painful areas of my life have been and are being healed. I feel SO blessed.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
What a wide variety of experiences I've had in life. Also, people assume that because you have a very serious relationship with God that you can't be sexy or that you have a limited view of the world, and that is totally untrue.

A little more about me
I've been told I'm a very complex woman, with many facets. I'm playful and sweet, risque and funny, intense and serious, and they're all me.I like to be unpredictable sometimes.....makes life fun. I'd love to meet someone who likes art, music and theater, especially someone who sings...that would be SO fun. I also speak Spanish fluently and am nearly bi-cultural, even though I'm not hispanic. I taught English to foreign students for years. I love learning about other cultures. I am also an excellent cook...Mexican, Italian, even southern. I am an excellent seamstress also, though I don't have much time for it. I love school and learning.
