I've been blessed in my life which has allowed me to be an encourager. Jesus Christ is first and foremost in my life. I'm optomistic, fun-loving, hard-working. I came out from Southern California and I still feel like a beach girl instead of a Texan---but if you heard my accent (oh, no, do I have an accent. . . ) you may think I'm a native. It was worth it to come out for a ministry in the Fort Worth area as part of a teaching team in their leadership school---an awesome experience for 6 years and I'm still working with one of their affiliates. This has been an opportunity to work with some really great people who shoot for more than "status quo" and for that I'm grateful. I love people and believe in them. Being truthful is important to me. I'm gutsy and strong, not over-bearing; tenderhearted and easy-going. I've kept up on sports, jogging and working out most all of my life---which led me to work for a nutrition company---Their innovative and compassionate approach to health and wellness is what attracts me. I still teach regularly in and outside my church ---it's all good! He is good! I'm goal-oriented and believe in being led, then taking initiative by faith. I love the Spirit-filled life--- love variety and know how to have fun--- to travel and have lived outside the U. S. Have such a good time with my 3 kids(grown), love to meet people, tennis (no one said super-star---I'm taking lessons now, not that I needed them. . . lol), hanging out with friends, keep a "joke file" if you have some good ones. . . Have been asked about my picture, yes, that is a recent photo my son took of me. To quote a cliche, 'Beauty on the inside and on the outside' is something I work on. Romance--yes, I believe in romance! With lots of laughs/closeness! It would be great to get to know a guy--- who follows the Lord Jesus relationally, is assured of his own leadership and has fun in the process. Please include a photo if you can--- My hope for you is that you find all that's in His plan for your life---(song from "My Wish") and the Lord blesses you with gifts and even His partner for you!
