I am bold but sincere, passionate but calm, spiritual but goofy and fun-loving, and tough but sensitive. I have been blessed in my life to make fine friends--many who have been in my life for decades.
I love books and ideas. I have a post-doc degree from George Washington University emphasizing English and Early American legal history. I love speaking, writing, and studying about America's history and heritage of liberty.
I have lived long enough to have the benefit of experience and perspective. But I am still young enough to have many years to make my mark on the world. I believe that life is a ministry and that is how I want to live it--joyfully and in service. In my life I have earned two graduate degrees, started businesses, filed briefs in the United States Supreme Court, lived in the South Pacific, and run for public office. I don't know how to play life small and safe, and that will probably never change.
I want to spend the rest of my life on this earth furthering the restoration and renewal of my country and my own life. My divorce was painful. But I am hopeful for restoration and renewal in my personal/family life too. I have two wonderful sons who are the light of my life--and that's a good start.
The most important things in choosing someone to spend my life with are finding someone who knows how to be happy and enthusiastic, someone who can communicate and figure things out with me, someone who will be devoted, and someone who desires a deep personal connection with the man she loves.
