Hello, my name is Ronette. I've been an active church member all my life and am blessed to have been raised in the gospel. I love to serve others in any way I can. I have a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and I have been blessed to know I have the Lord to lean on especially during times of trial. I'm ready to move forward and make new memories with that special someone. To me it's not about how many countries you've been to, what kind of car you drive or how many trips a week you take to the gym (I didn't say I don't like a healthy lifestyle though). There's a difference between an obsession and purely staying healthy. I'm looking for an honest man who has a strong testimony of the gospel and tries his best to live it each day. One who attends church regularly and hopefully 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. I have four kids (2 of each), but I only have one left at home now and she's 14. The rest are off on their own.
I'm the type of woman who likes to stay busy. I love making others happy. I'm a hard worker, thoughtful, happy, kind, honest, faithful, and loving woman. I love romance, affection, walking hand in hand. I love time with my family camping, hiking, walking, boating, bike riding, horse back riding, going to the beach, traveling, kayaking, nature, shopping, air shows (Blue Angels 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 yummy treats on occasion. I have an interest in photography as well. My other interests are dancing (and I need a dance partner!!), singing, taking walks, hiking to waterfalls, going to the beach or mountains (Mountains and the beach are my two favorites!), getting together with friends & family, playing board or card games, watching a good DVD movie on weekends. I very rarely watch TV, but I do like the dance and singing talent shows like The Voice. I'd much rather be outdoors any day than indoors.
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 actually just started taking piano lessons for the first time in my life:) If you play a musical instrument, that's even better and it will be enjoyed by me:) Music is a major deal in our home.
I 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 just want someone who sees the Eternal perspective and I want someone who is committed to marriage just as I am. I don't feel there's anything wrong with wanting someone with Christlike attributes. Next time around I want it to be for eternity. Someone who has a listening ear, shows love, respect, honesty, faithfulness and who will 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?
Heres a great quote from Jeffrey R Holland…."DON'T BE SELF ABSORBED. In all that Christ was, He was not ever envious or inflated, never consumed with His own needs. He did not once, not ever, seek His own advantage at the expense of someone else. He delighted in the happiness of others, the happiness He could bring them. He was forever kind. Dating isn't about finding someone who ticks every box on your list. It's about finding somebody who you are truly compatible with, and can progress with forever. Remember that you'll need to be worthy for your spouse- it's not a one-way street"
