My name is Ronette. I have been an active member of the church all my life and am blessed to have been raised in the gospel. I love to serve others as well as my family. I have a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and I have been blessed to have the gospel, my ward family, my best friend and extended family being there for me through the trial I've been through. I'm ready now to move forward and make new memories with that special someone. I'm looking for a man who has a strong testimony of the gospel and tries his best to live it. One who attends church regularly and holds a current temple recommend, so we can go serve in the temple together.
My children mean the world to me. I have always believed that the best and most rewarding job in the world is that of being a mother and I'm so thankful I had that opportunity to raise my kids, even though at times there was sacrifice involved living on one income the 24 years I was married. However, I do believe in "living within your means".
I'm the type of woman who likes to stay busy. I love making others happy and try my best to give 100%. I am a hard worker and I'm a thoughtful, happy, kind, honest, faithful, and loving woman. I also love romance, cuddling, affection, walking hand in hand. I love spending time with my family camping, hiking, walking, boating, bike riding, horse riding, going to the beach, traveling, kayaking, nature, shopping, air shows (Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, awesome!). I feel and have been told by many that I am a wonderful cook. I would love to find someone who cooks, so we can share in the fun. I also enjoy baking and use to have a blast making my kids' birthday cakes over the years since they'd come up with the cutest ideas for their cakes. I have an interest in photography as well, especially outdoor scenery.
I love dancing and it's not a deal breaker, but it would be nice to have a mate to dance with or if he'd be willing to take lessons with me. I also love singing, taking walks, hiking to waterfalls in our area, going to the beach or mountains, getting together with friends & family, playing board or card games, watching a good DVD movie on weekends. I'm not much of a TV watcher, but do like the dance and singing talent shows on TV as well as the news.
I have four children (2 of each) whom I love very much and they are top priority in my life. Three are in college and out of the house and one is 13 and lives with me. They are all very musically talented and my youngest is also a dancer. I love every chance I get to listen to my kid's sing and play their instruments. I also enjoy the performing arts, marching bands, plays, musicals, my daughter's dance recitals, my son's band, etc. I love the drums. I also love the piano and some day hope to learn to play. If you play a musical instrument that's even better and it will be enjoyed by me:)
I enjoy selling my daughter's outgrown clothing on ebay as a hobby as well as selling my clearance deals in which I turn around and make a profit. I also like shopping on occasion, but don't worry..I'm a bargain shopper! (ask my family & friends what a bargain shopper I am). I'm a lover of ALL animals. My daughter and I have volunteered at the local animal shelter over the years and have always enjoyed it. I also LOVE children and have been involved with children for many years volunteering at my kids' school, primary, nursery, as well as childcare in my home. Although I look forward to help raise and love your children as my own if you have them, I realize they do have a mother and I would never try to take her place.
I look forward to meeting someone who shares some of the same interests (and we don't have to share every interest) and most importantly, someone who is HONEST and who truly tries his best to live the gospel principles not just on Sunday's, but everyday. I'm looking for someone who honors his priesthood and could be that example for my daughter. Someone who lives the covenants he's made and keeps the word of wisdom (no addictions). I'm not asking for perfection, as none of us are perfect at all including myself. I don't mean to sound harsh, but after going through what I went through, lets just say the next time around I just want someone who sees the Eternal perspective and I want someone who is committed to marriage just as I am. There's nothing wrong with wanting someone with Christlike attributes. Next time around I want it to be for eternity. Someone who has a listening ear, treats me with love, respect, honesty, faithfulness and to be my best friend. One who will cherish and honor his marriage covenants. I would love and truly look forward to reciprocating all those qualities as well. Isn't that what we all desire? Is to love and be loved?
