The one thing I am passionate about...
I love finding balance in passions. At the end of a kick butt day in the office I can go out and unwind with friends, or hang out and paint in my garage. Weekends can alternate between wild adventures and sleepy slow mornings in.My faith stands at the center of my decisions for interacting with the world. I believe that Christ put love before any other commandment for a reason and that being a Christian requires standing for that love and caring for those around us in a real way. I'm looking for a man who wants to lead and will challenge me spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally.
I typically spend my leisure time
I think it matters less what you are doing than it does who you are spending time with. But in favor of a few - I enjoy trips and adventures with friends, board games and hang out nights, and summer sports and challenges, and eventually I would love to find my way back to the dance floor someday.On my own I dabble in art, cooking, toying with entrepreneurial ideas, and a once tentative, but now firmly established habit is enjoying my home gym and yoga.
The most influential person in my life has been
I tend to be over-analytical so I appreciate the rare adventurous man who looks at things to understand not just to notice. Someone who is perceptive and intentional. I want to build on our lives together and both drive toward crazy goals. Someone who makes me feel excited just by being there, one of those people who makes me laugh, who's willing to play, be mischievous. I want someone who respects me for who I am and what I have to offer. Because for that man I will learn to be the best helpmate he could ever ask to have.
The first thing people notice about me
Impression-wise I often get that I'm intimidating at first, I've never understood that. Physically I gt that it's my smile, but I always choose non-smiling pictures of me as my favorite... not sure why there either
The last book I read and enjoyed
Originals - by Adam Grant -- really good book, would recommend.I am just starting Knowledge of the Holy by Tozer and so far I'm very engaged. CS Lewis is a favorite author in general including his space trilogy.

A little more about me
I strive for balance, I'm a northerner at heart enjoying a little faster pace, but then being all in for a quiet weekend away relaxing. I value logic and reason sometimes to the detriment of accepting that emotion doesn't always fall in with logic, but as with anyone I work to get better at life each year. I'm fairly independent and don't get into relationships just for the sake of having one, but I know myself well enough to know my strength is being a right hand person and challenging others so I am excited about the idea of finding a man strong enough to lead. Do you think you can keep up?
