I am a first generation SDA and love where God has guided me. I have been a SDA for over 6 years now and attend church on a weekly basis. Since becoming a SDA, I find it interesting to see so many variant degrees to SDA practices across the realm of the church. I've seen the pendulum swing from far right legalism all the way to the far left of non-biblical liberalism and Sunday spiritualism. I prefer the pillars of our faith to remain intact, but without fearful legalism or lack of common Biblical reasoning.
You will find me a romantic at heart since I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve. I'm open, honest, tech savvy, smart and my friends will tell you I am a loyal and trustworthy friend who is able to laugh at himself.
If you want a man who isn't afraid to commit, who will not play games, is honest, compassionate, warm, caring, appreciative, affectionate, and is looking for a long term, monogamous relationship that leads to marriage then please drop me a line. I'm waiting for you. You will find that I am an evolving vegan vegetarian. I exercise 4 times a week and hope you enjoy cooking and fixing meals together in the kitchen at times..
I love the outdoors, watching chipmunks scamper playfully across campgrounds, traveling, RVing, biking and hope you do as well. I want a woman who is confident with who she is and is not afraid to show her needs and vulnerabilities, as this is how I am as well. I promise I will not violate your trust...
Life is hard, so if you come with bumps and bruises that life has a tendency to give us all, then know I have experienced some setbacks myself and am very compassionate and understanding... Oh, and one more thing... If you are looking for marriage, there is one important factor you need to consider. Moving forward with the rest of my life, I want to do things right, I want to do it God's way, so divorce is not an option for me. So if you're not in it for the long haul, then with all due respect, please pass me by.

Whatever makes us both feel at ease. i.e. walking in a park, having coffee, tea, green smoothies while getting to know each other. We can discuss this after we've talked a little..
The most important thing is that Both, need to put Christ first in their life. If this is the case, then Christ will direct what needs changing to make for a harmonious marriage. Without a proper and fair two way conversation, a relationship cannot be built or nurtured. Also, one very important thing we need to understand is that we all make mistakes. An unforgiving spirit will ruin a relationship. Forgiveness of wrongs is a must for any relationship to survive.
Since I am a first generation Adventist, becoming a SDA shows me that Christ is leading my life to where He wants me to be. I was happy as a Sunday keeper until Christ brought the truths given to the SDA into my living room. I am now a SDA and have been one for over 6 years. I never really felt like I belonged in any churches I've attended, but since becoming a SDA, I now feel I'm home.
Seriously, I will be closer to Christ than I am today. For years I have prayed that God would re-create me into the man He wants me to be..
In my past I have frustrated God's progress in my life, but I'm dedicated in allowing Him to finish the work He has started in me and He is answering my prayer.
I am a work in progress, not to imply I have issues, I just want to be the best I can be for my Lord and I have asked God to place me on His potter wheel to recreate me and He is doing so... If we truly want to be used by our Lord, we must bury our pride and be teachable.
The whole of Psalms 25. This chapter has helped me through many a disappointing moment. It's my go to chapter in time of need. God's word has always come through for me when I needed Him.
Please do not mistake the following as bragging as you will understand as you read onward...I've tasted many interesting experiences in my life... I've been a drummer in several rock bands and did small tours in both Canada and the USA when I was younger.
I've worked for 12 years in one of the most prestigious software companies in the world. I am founder and owner of two online ministries; CoronalWinds Radio and RoadToBetterLiving.
I am retired now, and all my programming talents will be used for God's work. I have dedicated the rest of my life to spreading the Good News About Christ, Present Day Truths and the truth about God's character.
I've tried hang gliding, I've experienced gold fever and now I understand how that feels... I've experienced the frustrations and much joy of raising a child. Children really teach you a lot about yourself, don't they? :o)
Now my life may not compare to others who have had a more eventful exciting life, but even with the fulfilling experiential life that I've had, nothing and I repeat, nothing compares to the joy of discovering that God truly exists. Serving God now, far surpasses anything I've done in the past.
Sadly, mistakes can still happen while we walk with the Lord. When a mistake happens, we must acknowledge it, study it, confess it and make sure we understand the cause of our mistake so it doesn't happen again... We must then move on. I've been divorced now for over 9 years and feel it's time to once again embrace sharing this life journey with someone I love. If you can relate to anything I've written here and consider yourself a potential match, I hope we get a chance to meet soon...
Thank you for taking time to read this long section of my profile. It shows you are inquisitive and patient. I look forward to meeting you some day.
