Since you are on this site too, it looks like you are brave also! How about going a step further and getting to know me?
If you took the time to talk with me, you would soon realize that I center my life on the Jesus Christ. His Gospel has brightened my life in so many ways. My relationship with my Father in Heaven and the Savior have been driving forces for the choices I have made and struggles I have overcome, which include active service in Christ's church, serving a mission, how I have dealt with losing someone dear to me, achieving a bachelors degree, and recently getting halfway through a masters degree that I never knew I could even attempt. There are so many more blessings I have received and continue to receive, and I owe it all to my Father in Heaven! One of the greatest has been my family!
Since my Father in Heaven and His plan is number one in my life, number 2 is family. I love my family! So many lessons have been learned through the years from my family. They each have impacted my life for the best. I look forward to the day to have my own eternal family! Families are so difficult to maintain and build, but the blessings from them are so desirable and out weigh it all!
Well, there is a lot about me, but perhaps you can get to know me better by understanding what I’m striving for. I want to be known as a man who loved being active in sports and the outdoors. If someone were to write something on my tombstone, I wish it would say “Friend to Many-Remember no man is a failure who has friends.” Currently, I am in a masters program, and well on my way to finally having a career blessing the lives of others. I have not had enough adventure and fun the past few years going through school, but I hope to find a companion willing to make some come about, which brings me to the last thing I wish to say.
So many describe the attributes in a spouse that they want on here, but can I give you an example of who I want to marry?
I was watching a classic that I always watch during Christmas time . . . It’s a Wonderful Life. . . I love it for so many reasons. I grew up watching the movie, and perhaps one of the greatest characters in that story is Mary, the wife of George Bailey (James Stuart). While most of the story focuses on George Bailey, and how he never thought of himself(!--span) in order to do so much good for others, Mary was one who matched George’s character stride for stride. When George was ready to abandon the life he felt was so worthless, she grounded him by bringing his friends to his aid. I could go on and on about how she worked hard and turned a wish into a dream, and then into reality when she married George. She continued that as she transformed a broken down house that all thought was for ruin into a wonderful home. It seems as though she had a knack for transforming the seemly broken and impossible into some of life’s most worth while pursuits! She helped George give comfortable and good homes to those in need. When George broke down, she came to his aid to show him how much of an impact he has had on others. She saved his life. Without Mary, there would be no George Bailey that we know and love in that movie. Again, she is one of the most under rated characters of all time. She makes the movie, not George Bailey . . . well, maybe that is too harsh. Poor George was an example to us all of what a Christ-like man should be, always giving selflessly.
I would love to find a woman with character like that. I’m looking for someone to help me become more Christ-like because she herself strives for to become Christ-like too. I want to turn my dream of an eternal family into a reality. Are the girl that shares my same desire, hopes, and dreams? Are you a Mary Bailey?
I know that’s a lot to live up to, and I myself am no George Bailey, but in time we (span style="font-weight:bold;")could get there together . . . that is what life is about family and becoming better by following the Savior.
