My self-summary
I am a nice guy. Are you tired of the shallow, phony, manipulative types? Well, with me, all you would get is genuineness, transparency, simplicity, and someone who loves to laugh and have fun. I am who I am and it is easily apparent to see. I am looking for tenderness, honesty, spiritual integrity and vitality. A genuine follower of Jesus Christ.

God has taken me on an incredible, exciting journey so far. All things do work for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose. I think and feel young. I love to teach and counsel. I even enjoy being single. Loving the Lord and seeking HIS will as a single person is very important to me.

I notice the wonderful blessings God gives us every day, sunsets and sunrises, flowers, cloud formations and even deep snow or a warm sunny Fall day. I love to laugh, sing and see the little things most others miss.

I have a wonderful little 8 yr old son who keeps me active and focused on someone other than myself. He has a loving mom so I am not looking for someone to be his mom but for companionship, someone to walk through life, alongside me, as we follow Christ.
What I’m doing with my life
I am living my life day by day. Being about God's will for me. My first priority is raising my little boy to be a loving, godly person. Then I have my occupation of teaching special education in high school. This is my ministry, assisting each of my students to be quality, honest and kind citizens, concerned about others. God has placed me with students who need someone who cares for them. Then there is my involvement in Grace Church, which I dearly love. It is incredible to see God at work saving lives and growing His children to be like Christ.
I’m really good at
Connecting with people, I listen and understand well. I can also easily figure out complex ideas and situations. I love philosophy and apologetics
The first things people usually notice about me
I have an infectious smile and a quick wit and understanding of people and events around me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love action movies and anything Sci Fi. The Blind Side, Lord of the Rings, The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe, and Veggie Tales.
Favorite TV shows; White Collar, Burn Notice, Leverage, and even Cake Boss.
I eat most all foods. I love Italian, Chinese, Mexican, American classics, pizza and hamburgers.
My music primarily is Contemporary Christian, Praise and Worship, Veggie-Tales, Gospel and all classical. Although I can still sing most of the oldies.
The six things I could never do without
I am a simple person, at this time I only need three. I could never do without my son, seeing him grow, love, and laugh. Next is the love that my God has for me, my relationship with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit empowering and leading me. The last is the connection with my two sisters and many relatives. We don't see each other often enough but there is definitely love and concern among us. For a fourth I would add my church, I just love it...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current events, news and the world around me. God is at work in a world trying to run away from Him, and we are destroying our own society.
On a typical Friday night I am
There is nothing typical about Friday nights. every other one I have Joel. We may be out at a sporting event or home watching movies about dragons or monsters. Since I don't do the bar or club scene, the other Friday nights I may be recovering from a tough week at school. I would love alternatives. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sorry, that's only to be shared with my spouse.
You should message me if
Who I am intrigues you and you believe I might be too shy to make the first move.
