I am a dynamic, fun loving, Christian widow who loves God and loves people. I am committed to obeying God's Word in every area of my life and I am ready to be joined to the man that God would choose for me. I am keenly aware that a woman can greatly encourage or discourage a man and I desire to partner with someone that I can encourage in His walk with God and stand with him as he steps out in faith on the journey God has for him. I love to laugh, outdoor activities, music, discovering new things, and taking adventuresome risks. I love to travel and have taken several short term missions trips. My friends say that I am a "drama queen", but in the positive sense of the word! Life is full of "dramatic material" and I tend to find the fun and dynamic elements in the simpliest, everyday times. (OK, so I do tend to over-exaggerate some things in a dramatic way, too!) I try to keep myself in good physical condition - eating well and exercise. Swimming and biking are my favorites, but you can also find me in a work out room grunting and groaning with the best of them. (actually, I groan more the day AFTER!) . I'm a little dangerous driving a jet ski, but I can be an enthusiastic passenger on just about anything that goes fast!I want to continue to pursue God and all that He has for me and I refuse to settle for less. My relationship with God is foremost and I love to be with people who are serious about following Him in the unique way that God has gifted them. I have a big heart and am very sensitive to those in need. I have been through a lot, so I tend to be less judgemental than many. God has shown me great grace and I try to display that love and grace to others. I try to see the positive in others and try to bring out the best in them. I get great joy in seeing others succeed in something that is important to them and I love to be a part in helping them reach that success. I am loyal and honest and promote full honesty in any relationship. Personality tests indicate that I am 99% extroverted, and I guess I need to agree with them. I truly get energized by being around people and live by the philosophy that all strangers are just friends waiting to be reached!
