I'm not good at this self-promoting stuff, but I'll give it a try. I'm easy going, love to laugh and enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy helping others. I was a missionary elementary teacher in South America for 8 years. It was an awesome experience. I'd still be there if God hadn't said it was time for a new season. I've learned being obedient to Him the first time around is so important. Trusting in His plan and having the faith to walk in His will isn't always easy but necessary. You never know who or what He'll bring when you listen to His voice and obey. I enjoy traveling, camping, spending time with family and friends. I am over-weight but I'm working on getting into shape. I live in MN but am open to going anywhere as long as God is in it. To be honest, I'm looking for a man who can be the leader in our marriage. I am independent but would like to depend on someone else. I guess I'd sum it up to this: I'm independent and strong but desire to have someone take care of me and me them. I have very solid beliefs. I have saved myself for marriage and would like to find someone who has done the same. I do understand that as I get older there are less like minded guys out there. If God's in it, past happenings can be moved beyond. I really would like to marry a guy taller than me. Sorry those of you who aren't. It is just important to me that I be able to look up to my husband physically and metaphorically. I'm not a size 2 so if that's what you want, I'm not for you. The older I get the more I realize that outer beauty isn't what makes a relationship work especially since we all change with age. :0) So if you don't mind a little more to love and value the inner beauty of a person let me know.
