About Joel

I'm traditional and simple. This doesn't mean I don't enjoy nice things, I'm just more inclined to place my energy, time and resources into things that have more than just material value. Maybe a better way to put it is to say that I'm not one to spend money I don't have, to buy things I don't need, to impress people. I'm me and I'm okay with that. I just want a simple life and I'm hoping to find someone that wants a simple life as well.

My brother and sisters call me stoic. My friends call me essentric. I value loyalty, humility, courage. I'm looking for someone that isn't afraid to admit their own faults and isn't unwilling to forgive mine. Someone who wants to be a wife and wants me to be a husband. Someone who wants to be a woman and me to be a man. To be what our Creator sees, not what the world tries to tell us we should be. Someone who will give me her input and I can make decisions with but who recognizes my responsibility before Yahweh and will support the decisions I have to make. Someone that is looking for her Boaz but also understands that I'm looking for my Ruth.

I grew up in a farming community. I became a firefighter after graduation and went into the military not long after that. When I left the military I went into IT and have been doing that ever since.

My hope is to move to Tennesee in the future and build an orchard and hobby/craft farm. I'm looking for someone to walk the rows with me.

I'm told I'm a romantic. My favorite sound is a whip-poor-will in the evening. My favorite place is beneath a live oak in the rain. I grew up in the country. I left it but it has never left me. I like the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking and fishing. I find my Creator in those times. I get lost in music but never really learned to dance. I read - a lot, and I enjoy working with wood.

Family is immensely important to me, second in my life only to Yahweh. Friends are truly a gift of the Father but not one of them is more important that family, beginning with the woman sleeping in the bed beside me and the wee ones across the hall. I'm not a violant man but the person who trifles with my family takes his life in his own hands.

My faith is something I try to live each day. I'm very orthodox in my views but I am not a "modern Christian". Please don't misunderstand me. I am a believer. One Father, one Son, one Way. I just don't look at my God or my Savior as an ATM. I worship Him because He deserves it, not because it's the in thing. I follow Him to be nearer to Him, not for what I might get from Him. I seek Him to know Him and to be known by Him. I try to live in my heart like Job did - "Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him." Job 13:15

So, who shouldn't message me? Ladies, if you dream of diamond rings and fancy things, I'm probably not your guy. I remember birthdays and anniverseries and other special days and I always try to do something special for them. Special, not extravagant. I'll get up every day and tell you I love you. I'll buy you flowers, make sure your car stays running and take care of you when you're sick. I'll work hard to be a good provider and make life and adventure but if you want all the latest fashions, fads and sparkles, I'm not your guy.
