I'm laid back yet will take charge when needed, tend to be gentle but that shouldn't be mistaken for weakness or lack of resolve/willingness to do what is needed. I'm not a fan of sarcasm but can hold my own if needed. I believe in following the Bible and I believe in using the writings of Ellen White to better understand the Bible as well as for practical living. I prefer being in nature/rural areas to the city. I enjoy backpacking, hanging out with friends, museums, gardening, good sermons, mission trips, work (especially manual labor), canoeing, kayaking, cooking, target shooting, hanging out with friends for a game night or camping, or a cookout. I love going exploring out in the woods taking pictures along the way of interesting plants and insects. Sometimes I'll hop in my car for a drive with the goal to see if I can get lost, along the way I take pictures of interesting things I find.

I work in Information Technology (computers) but will be entering an MBA program this year. I'm also teaching my self woodworking by hand (no power tools) and some bushcraft.

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

I prefer something casual...meet and greet...get an idea of what each other is like. Meeting for lunch and conversation would be good as well as going for walks, nature trails, museums, and kayaking to name some options.

My past relationships have taught me...

I have learned it is wise 1) to keep God and His will the focus and 2) take time, don't rush, 3) when in doubt, don't.

The approach I have done in the past which I like is to spend 6 months or so just getting to know each other. Setting aside a couple weekends a month to spend together, the intent being to get to know each other with no expectations, no physical interaction. At the end of those 6 months prayerfully consider moving to a dating relationship. If it progresses then prayerfully spend time getting to know each other more deeply with an eye towards marriage.

Something I try to keep in mind:

A Happy or Unhappy Marriage?--If those who are contemplating marriage would not have miserable, unhappy reflections after marriage, they must make it a subject of serious, earnest reflection now. This step taken unwisely is one of the most effective means of ruining the usefulness of young men and women. Life becomes a burden, a curse. No one can so effectually ruin a woman's happiness and usefulness, and make life a heartsickening burden, as her own husband; and no one can do one hundredth part as much to chill the hopes and aspirations of a man, to paralyze his energies and ruin his influence and prospects, as his own wife. It is from the marriage hour that many men and women date their success or failure in this life, and their hopes of the future life. {AH 43.1}

To me, being an Adventist means...

It means everything. We have a purpose, to be witnesses for Christ in whatever field of work or activity we pursue. But the most important is our relationship with Christ and cooperating with Him in the process of character development.

In five years, I see myself


My favorite Bible passage is...

That is difficult to answer. I really don't have just one, there are many I like. I enjoy reading Paul's writings. I have also been spending quite a bit of time in Psalms & Proverbs lately
