I am a devout Christian, and believe in Our Heavenly Father, Our Lord & Savior Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit. I love all three with a passion I never knew I possessed. I am a hopeless romantic that believes that a woman is to be loved, honored, cherished and protected with my whole being and even my life. I am looking for a long-term relationship leading to marriage and if we are lucky, being able to raise children in God's Name. The woman I seek would also be my partner in every detail of a marriage under God's Umbrella, through good times and bad. We would believe that a family should be sharing, caring, loving, faithful and shared equally between man and wife for the rest of our lives, with Our Heavenly Father as the central figurehead. I am one of the few remaining true gentlemen that knows how to treat a lady with praise and compassion and love for the happiness she has given me. I like outdoor ativities, such as picnics, hiking, camping, fishing, boating, playing with our children, and treating my wife and children as equals, and showing them love and teaching them of Christianity. A family is to be enjoyed equally by all members in the family, with the mother and father being leaders in the children's lives as someone to be looked up to as their example of how to live in a decent, law-abiding and loving family, praising God on a daily basis for what he has given us. If you are the type of woman that sees this as your ideal marriage, I would certainly hope to hear from you. I will know you before you read this, and certainly after you have responded to my ad, because God has shown my who you are, and what you are, and whether or not you are truly the one that is to be my lifetime partner living, and sharing together for the rest of our lives.
