I currently work in a local sawmill, but hope in the future to be in a more creative line of work such as Landscaping or fine woodwork. I love my family very much and enjoy spending most of my extra time with them, my mother and 3 sisters that live here locally. I also enjoy visiting my nieces (one of whom is seen in the photo above). I have a very intelligent and devoted dog that I enjoy very much. I love canoeing and getting out in the great outdoors, however I haven't been getting out much lately as I have been busy with home renovations. I love gardening, and landscaping though the growing season is very short here. I enjoy singing hymns and worship songs and have in the past enjoyed being in various choirs. I love the Lord and His Word, and desire to become more and more taken up with His Word, His Plans, His Purposes and His Kingdom. I'm far from perfect, just as the apostle Paul said in Phil 3 "but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethern, I do not count my self to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. God's word is extremely important to me and how I treat it. I believe strongly that when you study and read His word the context must always be considered. We must seek to understand what the author was try to communicate and to whom. This certainly doesn't mean there is no application to our lives, but we must be careful not to read into the text, but rather draw out of the text.
