I'm an extrovert who is wrting a book and who is in a wheelchair because of a mountain biking accident on Oct 28, 2001. I am into Christian Apologetics, deep discussions, thanking God for His creation and how things work, and learning about almost anything. Life is good - even in a wheelchair. I've got more peace and joy in my heart after 13 years of pain and paralysis than I ever thought I'd have even before my paralysis.
I'm into natural health care and try to eat organic as often as possible, because I hope to heal my spinal cord and walk, run, jump, and climb again some day. I very rarely eat highly processed foods and sugar, but my favorite grocery store is Trader Joe's. :) My favorite place to buy food is at the Farmer's market.
I'm thankful for God's grace and mercy and have hope that there is a woman out there who wants to live with a man who desires to grow closer to God daily, live out the fruits of the Spirit, and be as great a husband as he can possibly be. I think one reason it is not good for man to be alone is because "iron sharpens iron." I believe God designed men and women to complete each other in a balanced way, that the hard work of a two sex relationship is good for both in complementary ways and brings rewards to which singleness and same sex relationships cannot lead.
I'd like to find a woman who is open to moving to the Richmond, VA area and starting a family. That is asking a lot of someone, but if you're a Jesus-loving woman out there who enjoys looking at my pic and you are open to a move and you want kids, I'm open to chatting with you and seeing if we click. (Since I'm 48, I realize that in order to start a family, I'll probably need someone a decade or so younger. I've heard it said that a younger wife helps a man live to an older age, and I'm hoping to live into my 90's - for her sake and mine.)
If I've messaged you, it is because you've said in your profile that you love our Savior and you want kids, and because I enjoy your pic(s).
Whether or not you reply to a message from me, and whether we click or not, I pray that our Father blesses you abundantly in this life and that your life will be filled with joy and wonder. I believe that we will have forever to get to know each other on the new earth where there will be no marriage except ours to the Bridegroom. May your life be the best God knows you can have. :)

The six things I could never do without
Relationships - with God and others
The word "if" - for thought and science experiments
Hope - for so much
Understanding - I really enjoy learning the truth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life's deepest questions and how to communicate the Christian answers: What is love? What is our relationship to God about? How did we get here? Why are we here? How do I best live? What is truth? And less seriously - business ideas and inventions galore, how to manage money, possibilities...
On a typical Friday night I am
Going out with pals to Mexican food or sushi and then to a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My current repeated prayer is, "With me as You wish for Your kingdom's sake." I visualize my life and future in the palm of my hand and hold it flat open up toward the sky - even though God is everywhere, not just up. :)
You should message me if
You're a Christian who hopes to find a husband with whom to start and raise a family and you're open to moving to Richmond, VA. - Although I can live anywhere and my income will follow me, I really like this "river city" that has a bit of everything and is so family friendly.
