45, Fairfield, IAI am in awe of people who define themselves by their work. I am gainfully employed, but it is just a means to an end. I am not my work. I am from a large close knit family. I prefer answering questions about myself rather than volunteering information.
39, Clive, IAHi! I'd like to start from the fact that I moved to Iowa three years ago looking mainly to a better future because it's getting crazy in my country. I'm from Syria and I was raised Catholic which makes Iowa a very good place to be in because people are very friendly, of high values, with great appreciation to family, and the majority is still connected to church. It's quite a challenging adjusting experience, especially with weather :) I just earned a masters degree in accounting but most probably other exams are coming along the way. I love nature, hiking, and picnics. If get the chance to meet my partner here, I'd love for us to be involved in helping poor families and in growing our faith by being close to people in need.
27, North English, IAHi! I am a Traditional Catholic, and I very much love and try to live my faith. I have been working as a SCL (social community living) for the mentally disabled for the past 7 years. It can be very challenging but I do enjoy it. In my spare time I like to go out for a nice walk and enjoy nature or at times you may find me inside reading.
57, Cedar Rapids, IAI am a kind, generous person who likes to be active. I was raised in the country on the farm and even though I live in town now, I am still country at heart. I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and gardening, but my passion is quilting and my grandchildren.
35, Cedar Rapids, IAI am Catholic. I am from a small family. I have two sisters and one nephew on the way. I have a few friends in the Cedar Rapids area. Most of my friends are married and have busy lifestyles. I am a busy nurse. I work full time in long term care or a nursing home. I am thoughtful and kind, frustrated at times. My schedule is very busy, busy, busy. When I am not working my activity includes the pro life activity and Nursing education/law. Usually I am pegged for being Catholic and that's a compliment IMHO. I am a good friend. I love investing time and care in folk. I like to visit. I am interested in going after a higher degree. I am always reading about healing and health and implementing what is possible. I am a natural health junkie and appreciate fitness also, daily walks/light runs/snow shoes. My life has caused me to move often and am new to this area. I am trying out the local book club, parish activities, hikes. So sorry I haven't been picture happy up to this point. As soon as possible more photos will be added. I have empathy for modesty. I don't know what I have done to deserve meeting the people I have thus far, they have been blessings to me. Maybe it's daily 15 decades of the Rosary :) The daily 15 are mandatory for me. I can always find time to pray more.
35, Bettendorf, IAI am a woman that loves her catholic faith and strives to live it everyday. I am passionate about life and enjoying all the blessings God has to offer, one of my greatest blessings in my life I have received is my daughter. She has been the joy and light in my life. She reminds me everyday how beautiful life can be. I have been influenced by trying to make good choices in life and what God wants for me. My parents have been a strong influence in my life teaching me how important it is to have God and my catholic faith as my main focus in my life! I like to learn from the saints. My favorite saint is st. Therese of lisieux. One of my favorite quotes by st. Therese is " Prayer for me is an outburst from the heart; it is a simple look turned toward heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy. " I have traveled to new york, florida, mexico and a few other various places. I would love to travel to colorado, ireland, italy, and one day the holy land. In my spare time i love just being with my family and doing things with my daughter.

22, Ankeny, IAI can't say I'm passionate about one thing only, but if i had to name one it would be learning more about Catholicism. I love how one question leans to another and another and another and soon you find yourself talking about something completely different or in a deep deep conversation and its completely fascinating, rich and fulfilling. I also highly enjoy outdoor activities, it's what i look forward to in my leisure time. Camping, hiking, biking, walking, canoeing, fishing, I'm not much of a swimmer but i enjoy floating. One of my dreams is to go to the Grand Canyon to camp and hike; i would also love to make to the mountains to hike, camp and anything else. The most influential people in my life have been people outside my family. While i love and would do anything for my family, my friends and extended family have been more influential than my immediate family. If it wasn't for my family, however, I wouldn't be here, so i remain forever grateful for them.
47, Spirit Lake, IALook forward to talking to new people learning about you and about your aspirations.

24, Des Moines, IAOrginially, I went to college to study Opera, but during my freshman year, the Holy Spirit laid it on my heart to start a pro-life group on campus. Two days after publicly announcing the group's first meeting, I got sugar put in the gastank of my car. Two days after that, the valve stems on my tires were cut. For the next four years, I faced administrative discrmination. Post-grad, I worked full-time for a pro-life non-profit as Vice President of Education as well as a public speaker. If you'd overhear me talking to someone, it'd most likely be about El Salvador, human dignity, pro-life issues, or my desire to be a mother. If you'd run into me, it'd probably be at a Caribou Coffee. If my friends were to describe me, they'd say I am incredibly outgoing, passionate, and candid. Two of my favorite quotes: "It is the duty of every man to uphold the dignity of every woman." - Saint Pope John Paul II & "In an age that has thrown off tradition, the only rebellion possible is orthodoxy." - Peter Kreeft

I am the kind of person that is always down for an adventure, but I also enjoy a laid back night in as well.
