60, Des Moines, IAFirst of all, I am CATHOLIC. The Catholic faith and traditions are very important to me. I belong to a fantastic parish and we are like a family. I recently switched jobs from being a teacher of 2 year olds to working at a hotel. Too many years of teaching 2's had made me lose part of my mind (only kidding). I love children and will miss that job ALOT. I can get my fix of children with my best friend-she and her husband have 8. I also teach CCD to and just this year graduated to teaching the 1st Communion kids from being with the 4 & 5 year olds.I was nervous about making the switch to the big kids, but it was truly a blessing. God always knows what he is doing when we get challenged and say yes. And as I mentioned I belong to a fantastic parish with lots of big familes. Friends, family and children are very important to me. I have 2 older brothers, a niece, a nephew and a great nephew and as of July 7th, 2012 a great niece who is very cute. They all live a distance from me so I don't get to see them often, that may change as my niece has just relocated to Iowa. I love my family very much. I am very grateful to have made wonderful friends where I live who are like family.. I was lucky enough to see Pope John Paul 2 at World Youth Day in Denver which was a unique experience and has it's own share of miracles to go with it. I am so glad I took the opportunity to go to Denver. I have reached the point in my life where I can honestly say I am very happy just to be me especially since I took on the challenge to lose weight and have lost 50 pounds as of July 7, 2012!!
68, Des Moines, IAi am a 63 year old widow of three and a half years. i had a traumatic brain injury in a car accident in 1993 that put an end to my teaching career. i had taught 2nd grade for ten years and prior to that, i was blessed to be able to stay home with my five children. i am now unable to work full time so i spend my days taking care of my grandbabies while their parents work. i love to sew and quilt, read daily, and enjoy a little outdoor yard work when the weather is not too hot or cold. i frequently have extras living with me (currently a 25-year-old nephew), mainly to help them out. my social life consists of mainly family activities. i try to think positively about life, and have a firm belief that god has a plan for me, and that i must trust him.
67, West Des Moines, IAThe faith God has given me is the most important thing in this life. As a single person all my life, my parents (deceased) and family are very important to me. My parents taught me the love of God. Before converting to Catholicism in 2010, God's work over a five-year period of time, I was a third-generation Methodist. I embrace all teachings of the Catholic Church and am looking for a companion who does also. The real presence in the Eucharist was embedded in my spirit, with God's grace, for as long as I can remember. In other words, I've always been a Catholic; I just didn't know it until God began calling me to the Catholic Church. I enjoy the quiet things in life . . . going on a walk while listening to Catholic radio, watching a good movie, listening to Christian music or playing it on the piano, a meal out with a close friend, talking with people at church, and traveling abroad. I have been serving as a Eucharistic Minister at a local Catholic hospital for several years and am a member of Serra Club. I retired after 30 some years in the counseling profession and worked several years as a corporate trainer. God has given me a fondness for animals. Looking the friendship of a caring, well-educated, and devout Catholic man with a great sense of humor.
