I'm interested in someone who is a committed Christian; not just someone who says they are but someone who really has a relationship with Jesus. It's important to me that people are kind and have compassion for others. I think it's important for two people to have some interests in common but it's more important that they have mutual respect and can treat each other kindly. I would like to get married at some point but I'm also happy being single, if thats where God wants me. I'm not interested in playing games and I'm also not interested in a sexual relationship till I get married. If thats what your looking for, don't waste my time or yours. I enjoy reading on many different subjects, gardening, cooking for family and friends. I love nature and being outside. I like to camp and travel, although I haven't had the opportunity to do either very often. I love the mountains. I live near Lake Michigan so I spend a lot of time at the beach whenever possible. I love animals and I have a dog and a cat. I like going out some but I'm also content to stay home and cook a meal together or watch a movie. I've been a christian since I was a teenager but only recently gave him complete control of my life. I'm working on building a closer relationship with him and learning to reallly trust him. I'm not legalistic by any means but I try to have high morals. My friends usually describe me as "sweet, generous, compassionate" and they tell me that I have a bueatiful smile. The flip side of that (oh yea! There is a flip side!) is that I can be stubborn and a little too naive for my own good. I just joined this site and I'm having a little trouble downloading my picture but I think I can email it so if you're interested, write me.
