I believe a man should treat a woman with care and respect. I'm an
old-fashioned romantic and love finding the adventure and variety

What I’m doing with my life
Teaching leadership and developing character through service and
adventure at a private school in northern Indiana.
Wrestling with my flesh as God refines me day by day.
Walking through life with 1) a wonderful family that God has
redeemed through rough times, 2) 7 men who have become my brothers
and heart of my own heart and, 3) mentees who continue to challenge
and inspire me.

My engaging eyes and warm smile. Ever since I was a baby, people
have said my joy is contgeous.
