I am a single mom of two amazing sons that are almost finished with college at Andrews University and Walla Walla University. Sometimes, they come home on vacations, but will most likely soon be married and on their own wherever God leads them.
I love God and following Him is what is most important in my life. I have been an Adventist all my life.
I am a teacher and a writer. I have taught in Adventist schools for almost 20 years now. I have also done some writing for some Adventist publications. I would love to retire from teaching and just write, but we will see where the Lord leads.
I love fishing, camping, gardening, target shooting, hiking, cooking, sewing, horses, and spending time with family. I like the Peanuts, Anne of Green Gables, and Iron Man. I like to laugh, stay positive, tease, and play. I like Taco Bell, picnics, picking wild flowers, flying kites, Darius Rucker, taking my dogs for walks, and lying in the grass in the country and watching fireflies come out and then the stars. I don’t mind getting caught in the rain or putting my hair up in a ponytail in the heat wearing flip-flops and a sundress...
I am looking for a man that puts God first in his life and will be a leader in our home when it comes to worship and attending church. Someone not afraid of work, that is responsible, and kind.
I like to imagine that my man will like taking me fishing, work in my garden with me, will show me the best way to target practice my shooting, will snuggle up with me and watch a boring chick flick now and then (and I’ll watch football or boxing with you – I have been to Orlando Magic games and had a great time…), go to a Building 429 concert with me, will be manly enough to pick wildflowers for me now and then, will be kind and caring toward my sons, and will encourage me in my life’s endeavors.
What I feel like I can add to the relationship is faithfulness, emotional encouragement, supporting my man in his work in whichever way I can, working toward common goals, caring for a supporting his children, being positive, honest, and playful.
Things I don’t like are grouchy, angry, overly serious, judgmental, mean, and negative people. Also, please spare me the conspiracy theories. Oh, and don’t yell at me about politics.
Just because we are old, doesn’t mean we have to act like we have a foot in the grave. We can be happy and love life. That’s just me. ☺

Meet somewhere to talk and get to know each other. Fishing on a pier might be a good idea, or meet at a restaurant...
That I want my future man to be my best friend first.
I want to be unafraid to share how I feel. Knowing that I will never be shunned, ignored, or turned away. I want to feel safe.
Communication is key! Sometimes talking in person is the best way to talk out a problem. Talking on the phone is next. Emailing or texting can be taken all kinds of ways and is not the best way to talk over important issues.
It's so important to be open and honest. Don't hide your feelings. Someone will most likely be hurt if you do.
That you can't believe everything everyone tells you. (sadly)
To have someone that "had my back" would be amazing.
Following the Bible, having an active relationship with Jesus, sharing Him by having Jesus in your heart, and going to church and Sabbath School.
I am open to whatever God has in store for me. I have learned that he thinks outside the box... Who knows?
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I love these verses, because they get me through the rough times. They bring me peace.
I am looking for a relationship with someone that I can trust, that is looking for a forever someone, not a short term visit. I would like to find my best buddy of all time.
