I'm very outgoing. I love church, I enjoy being involved. I'm sanguine so I'm fun to be around but at the end of the day I want to be at home.
I'm here because I believe I still have a lot of life to live and I know for sure I have a lot of love to give.

So many times we seek for someone to love us, and so many profiles on here provide a list of qualities that we seek in others. I believe that it is God's desire for us to be the one with those qualities to show them, share them and bless someone else with them. My desire is to find a partner that I can respect and love.

I believe in the sanctity of marriage and how sacred and holy it is. Would love to get to meet someone, become acquainted, grow a friendship and surrender the rest to the Lord for His will to be done.

I truly enjoy ministry. In 2009 I founded what has become a very popular ministry in our our church. God's Closet just recently became an official ministry of The North American Division. There are currently 21 chapters of the ministry in churches all over the United States with two in Australia and two in Canada. Last year I had the awesome opportunity to be interviewed on 3ABN.

It is a privilege to work for Jesus and be able to spend much of my time helping others.

What I'd like to do on a first date...

Have dinner. Nothing romantic, just good food and nice conversation.

My past relationships have taught me...

To be honest. Its the best policy. That God wants and expects a wife to be submissive. That vindictiveness brings nothing but pain. That Love is a decision, not a feeling. That being angry at your mate and not communicating in a loving manner only turns someone off. That you can't expect to be mean and receive kindness in return. That a pleasant attitude can change any heart. That you can't change anyone but yourself...oh my list can go on and on...but I'll stop, we can share more over dinner!

To me, being an Adventist means...

To love the Lord Jesus with all your heart. To honor what our beliefs are. To live a life according to His will through His strength and not our own. To be respectful of the values our church holds. To believe that He is coming again! to live by the words of the Bible and to respect Sister White.

In five years, I see myself

Not sure.

My favorite Bible passage is...

Let all bitterness, and wrath and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiving you.

WHY: I think this verse speaks for itself. We live in a society where forgiving is not practiced. God's great commandment...to love Him and to love each other. How can we love each other if we can't learn to forgive. No matter who the person is, they are not perfect. People will hurt you and let you down, but we are asked to still love them!

One final thing I'd like to mention...

I'm just a girl...who was hurt...by someone who loved someone else but..who hasn't been hurt right? Would love to find someone special to love again.

My name is Merryl  and I approve this message! :)
