I enjoy nature, going for walks, reading, and hanging out. I'm also not above playing computer games, especially old ones, and it would be fun to play them with someone every once in awhile. I also am content curling up on the couch and watching a good movie or TV show.
Bible study is important to me, and when I get married someday, I would like to study the Bible with my husband and family. I would like to pray with my husband and for him, and for our kids. I want Jesus Christ to be the center of the relationship.
I volunteer at my church, helping to teach the 5th and 6th grade class on Wednesday nights.
I have answered many questions on this site. If you are interested in dating me, please take a look at at least a couple pages of them before messaging me.

1. You are a follower of Jesus Christ, as He is found in the Bible
(if you consider yourself to be Christian, a trinitarian, you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, that He rose bodily from the dead, that He is returning some day in the future, and you believe that salvation is by grace through faith.
2. You do not adhere to the Prosperity Gospel/Word of Faith
teachings, or follow people such as: Joel Osteen, Rod Parsley, etc.
Basically, if you think that it's God's job to give you health
wealth, and prosperity in all things & that if you're not
prosperous in these things, you're sinning, than you and I have
different theology. I strongly oppose that belief system.
3. You do not admire the teachings of Bill Johnson of Bethel Church, Patricia King, Todd Bentley, John Crowder, Jim Goll, John Arnott, Bob Jones (different Bob Jones from the one who has a university named after him), Rick Joyner, Dutch Sheets, Graham Cooke, or anyone else who has a ministry link on The Elijah List.
4.) Besides being a strong Christian, and being theologically compatible, you need to be kind and treat others with respect. You and I need to share the same set of values/morals.
5.) I'm waiting until marriage to have sex, and I want you to do the same.
6.) I do want to have kids someday, so you need to want to have kids in the future.
7.) I want to find someone with whom I can have intelligent conversations with. While you do not have to be a genius by any means, I do want you to be intelligent. (If you're reading this, you probably qualify :) )
8.) You should be a leader -- and not be wimpy (and I'm not talking about physical strength. I don't care how physically strong you are). In other words, you should not be afraid to eventually become the spiritual leader of the relationship.
9.) I think I would do better with someone who is more relaxed than anxious, as I'd like you to make me feel comfortable.
10.) You must respect women.
11.) You should honor God in all that you do, and seek to glorify Him in everything.
12.) If you believe that religion, specifically Christianity, is more than just a lot of ethical and moral principles to follow.
If all of this resonates with you, then please message me. I will respond to you.
