About Me
Single, never married, stayed abstinent, seeks same. I'm looking for someone who walks in the joy of the Lord, someone who is kind, and has a solid faith and love for the Lord. I hope to find someone who I can connect with intellectually.. must also be extremely wealthy...kidding :) I would like a relationship where our love for each other displays God's love and light to the world, where we can support each other in ministry (either full time or serving in the local church), and accomplish more together than apart. I have a desire to explore the depth of friendship that a marriage relationship can be, but God is to be loved first, and perfect love for my spouse and everyone else will flow out of that.

I am definitely the thinker type, I like to get to the bottom of things intellectually, see not just the surface but the underlying. I think I have a well-rounded sense of humour - I like both dry/witty humour as well as the silly/ridiculous. My words are often fewer in social situations, I like to see where the conversation goes and decide when to add to it - but I open up when the company is right. I enjoy being on my own but I also love to hang out with those that are close to me. God has grown me into a peace-maker, and someone who is strong in faith, patience, self control and kindness. I value openness and honesty, I'm turned off by gossip and selfishness.

I was blessed to have been raised in a Christian home although my faith only began to mean a lot to me in high school and beyond. I'm currently excited about drawing closer to God in quiet times, reading edifying books on spiritual Christian living, and developing as a worker/leader in my church. I'm looking to gain more of a burning heart for Him and a moment-by-moment sensitivity to the Spirit. I've always found a lot of significance in Romans 8:28. And I've found Rom 10:5, 11:36 to be a very central and guiding verses to Christian living. And there are quite a few others..

I would love to find someone who I could share some of my interests with. My interests are: reading, hiking, watching movies, keeping up on scientific discoveries, creative writing, watching documentaries, running/working out, snowboarding, traveling overseas, computer games/VR, watching hockey, maintaining my doll house collection.. jk :)
Some favorite books: LOTR, Out of the Silent Planet, The Brothers Karamazov, The Count of Monte Cristo, Jane Eyre, The Normal Christian Life, The Heavenly Man, The Sacrament of the Present Moment, A Brief History of Time, A Severe Mercy, The Problem of Pain, The Bourne Identity.

I'm trained as a technical writer, having obtained an applied degree in technical communication, and I'm currently self-employed doing technical writing and e-learning development. I feel I'm gifted in writing and have an ability to explain complex principles to people, but I also have an aspect to me that longs to design and create, so I'm pursuing the art of writing screenplays. I've written 3 feature-length screenplays and one short film script - I don't know if I'm good at this yet, but it sure is fun! I'm also interested and engaged in Christian apologetics, as well as staying aware and involved in politics and social discussion.

I went to a Christian school in Calgary for most of my elementary and high school. I have completed a Diploma of Biblical Studies at Steinbach Bible College. I have also done some short term Bible School at Capernwray in Quebec and a few years of university here in Calgary. I would like to find someone who has studied the Bible in school or in their personal time.

I am looking for a best friend and someone who is up for all that the unique adventure called marriage, holds. Someone who can appreciate my gifts and support me in them, and I theirs. I have made various mistakes with my eyes and with physical contact in relationships but I have kept myself for my spouse (stayed abstinent thus far in my life) and I'm looking for someone that can say the same. This desire is not about judgement, or thinking that God can't give second chances, He does, rather this is just a personal desire to experience the joy of discovery with my future spouse. I don't necessarily see this as a permanent desire, at any time, when I meet someone who resonates with me, I may find that I no longer have this desire, for now it is what it is, but it is in God's hands. A local match would be great but I am open to long-distance - it's all about finding the right compatibility. I snore, so a heavy sleeper would probably be better for me. May God bless you in your search!
