I grew up in a small town out in the country with a loving family who shared with me their love for Christ when I was yet very young. My family is very important to me and I spend many of my weekends with them. I am very grateful for the life that God has given me. I know that if there is any worth in me, it is because of His grace. I have traveled a little, but I am content to stay in California for the time being. I enjoy reading and am particularly interested in history. One of my favorite films is Fiddler on the Roof. I am looking for a friend and companion who shares many of my deepest cares and who would joyfully choose to stand by my side until the end of my days. I want a wife who desires to be a fruitful instrument of God's grace, whose joy is in caring for and showing kindness to friends and family, and who takes an interest in trying to strengthen the community where she lives. I would like a wife who prays steadily, confidently, and humbly. Finally, I want her to find great joy and purpose in raising children.
