Tell us about your family. How do you feel about relocating?

I have a large family overall, and they all live close in Arkansas/Oklahoma. Like many on this site, I don’t necessarily want to relocate, but you never know until you meet the right person.

How old were you when you were drawn to Christ and how is your Christian walk these days?

Difficult to say. I grew up in the Assembly of God denomination, and since they don’t hold to a view of salvation that includes the security of a believer, I was essentially taught I needed to be saved every Sunday. I grew up in that church, and believe I was saved in that church, but it is difficult to pin down an exact date. I am now attending a faithful baptist church and trying each day to live for God’s glory.

How have the Doctrines of Grace changed or affected your life?

Significantly! I mean its coming to understand the truth of what scripture teaches as opposed to the erroneous doctrine I was taught before. It brings comfort, joy, peace, assurance and boldness to my everyday life and my ability to share the gospel with others.

Do you have a "Quiet Time?" What are you studying?

Yes, typically in the mornings. Currently studying Exodus, and I’m always in the Psalms.

Who is your favorite Biblical Character and why?

Probably John. Maybe not for any historical passages involving him, but if we understand that God used the personalities of the men as part of the inspiration of scripture, I think John and Revelation, as well as 1-3 John are some of the most beautifully written books in the bible.

Are you content being single? Why? If not, why?

No, I am not content being single. I have a strong desire to be married. I don’t think it is wrong to say you’re not content being single for the same reason it’s not wrong to say you’re not content being hungry, or thirsty. If God has given you a good desire for your own good, pursue that desire. We can all say that we are content in Christ and need nothing else, but just because that’s the case doesn’t mean we can’t strongly desire other things in life, which He has ordained for humanity in general as being good.

What are four qualities your friends would attribute to you?

Humorous, studied, gentle, stubborn

What are three things you are most thankful for?

My family, my church, and books

Describe the character and personality traits you enjoy in another person? What are yours?

I’m looking for a woman that is grounded in the truth, knows what she believes and why, and wants to have a family. Aside from that, I think there are so many different personalities out there that its hard to say which ones are completely ruled out. I would say if you trust your feelings over the truth, or you talk over other people instead of engaging in listening as well as generally civil dialogue, we probably won’t get along. But if you’re hard-working, funny, quick-witted, and can take a jest and throw it right back, we’ll get along beautifully.

Other than your parents, who has been the most influential person in your life and how?

Probably my small group leader. He has walked me through scripture for so many years now, and the wisdom he to this day conveys to me is immeasurable.

What contributed to your previous relationship/marriage ending?

Soon after we got engaged, she began to show more of her true colors, and the differences were incompatible. We tried to work things out for a while, but ultimately I had to call it all off. I don’t regret that relationship, as it taught me to stand up for myself more, and to recognize red flags.

How long have you been on your own since and what did you to do get through it?

About a year and a half. It was difficult for the first couple of weeks, but I knew it needed to end, and so after getting over the intense initial emotional aspect of ending an engagement, I was okay. I just kept thinking of the hymn, “All The Way My Savior Leads Me,”  specifically, the lyrics, “For I know what ere befall me, Jesus doeth all things well.”

Favorite lines from movies, poems, songs, hymns or Scripture you would like to tell us about?

He arose a victor from the dark domain, and He lives forever with His saints to reign – Up From The Grave He Arose

What type of work do/did you do?

I was working in public accounting until very recently, but I’m looking to get into private accounting right now. I have a couple of offers on the table, just not sure what to take at the moment.

How long have you been/were you in that line of work? Do/you enjoy it?

A little over five years, and I enjoy it very much. Who doesn’t love a nice excel spreadsheet with financial data?

Do you have any life-long goals? What are they?

I want to live a faithful life in obedience to Christ, raise a family, be a good husband, love my wife, raise our kids together in accordance to God’s Word, grow in my career to help my family and be generous to my church and community.

Where were you born and where have you traveled?

I was born here in Fort Smith, Arkansas, raised in Gans, Oklahoma, and I’ve moved to Fort Smith for work. I have traveled a little internationally, mainly to the Caribbean and India, but little aside from that. I have been to a few different states in the US.

How do you enjoy your leisure time? What do you do for recreation?

I like to read, spend time with family, go for a long walk with a good podcast (I listen to several), and watch movies.

Is there anything that the questionnaire didn’t cover?

That depends on the interested party. Feel free to ask, I’m an open book!
