Halfway to sixty and too many unchecked items on my bucket-list! I love God, my family, friends and traveling...pretty much in that order. I started traveling in high school serving on mission trips. The trips were a great introduction to exploring new places and meeting people. I've moved around the country a lot but I've found a special place in my heart for my forever state, Maine. I am on a constant pursuit to advance in my healthcare career only because I love to keep learning (or relearning what I knew in middle school!).
I love spending time with my family and helping my siblings with their children. My faith is rooted in my love for Jesus Christ and His love for me shapes my thoughts and actions. I like everything outdoors in the summer but still trying to love everything winter. I want marry someone who wants to build a tiny home with me and travel every chance we get. I love life because I know it is fleeting, and I have faith in what comes next!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To meet people from around the world, learn about their culture and share life together. The beauty in other countries is only amplified by the people who call it home.

Music, Movies, and Books
Movies, I struggle with this one, so many good ones, although I hardly find time to turn on the TV.
Books: Rebecca, Maine, The Story, Believe, Piercing the Darkness, my nerdy school books that I like to read.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Myrtle Beach, Guatemala, Iceland, and Canada in one year....while working fulltime and going to school. To God be the glory! Crazy year.
Teach, Learn, Share
"If you want to establish a good and healthy relationship with others, find out what values you share and then build upon those. Maybe it’s the job where you both work. Maybe it’s common family members. Maybe (hopefully) it’s God. But whatever it is, find it, claim it—and then start to build your relationship upon it."
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today
is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips
then walk out the door and deny him by their lifestyle
that is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable"
“All day I think about it, then at night I say it. Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing? I have no idea. My soul is from elsewhere, I'm sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” ~ Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted.... ~ John Lennon
Society....is a vehicle for earthly heroism...Man transcends death by finding meaning for his life...It is the burning desire for the creature to count....What man really fears is not so much extinction, but extinction with insignificance.... ~ Ernes Becker
"The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step"
"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye" ~ Antoine De Saint Exupery
"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
What I Can Share with Hosts
Faith, Love and hope...sounds cliche but those three things define how I live. To love is to bridge the gap between differences imposed on us via society. If invited, I will cook breakfast (it is my favorite), play a game (I love cards), exchange stories and embrace the short time that will pass like dust in the wind.
Countries I’ve Visited
Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Guatemala, Haiti, Iceland, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, Spain
