I just moved back to Utah to be near my parents, brother, son and extended family.
I am an outgoing, affectionate, intelligent woman who enjoys family, learning, travel, music, theater, reading, walking and bike riding. I like to step outside of my comfort zone to develop new interests, expand skills or explore opportunities. I just moved back to Utah to be close to my extended family.
I'm a lifelong, active, church member who has held numerous callings. While I have friends with many different beliefs and backgrounds, I can't imagine living my life outside of the church. LDS life brings clarity and stability to a crazy world with shrinking morals. I love and understand those who believe differently than I do. I prefer the peace that faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ and church membership bring to me.
I served a welfare services mission in Peru. I loved the people and didn't faint at the sight of cockroaches. I hope to serve another mission, when I retire. Hopefully, I can use my medical and language skills. My favorite church callings are teaching the 8 year-old primary class and Gospel Doctrine. I currently teach Gospel Essentials.
As a nurse, I often find myself caring for an elderly patient whose spouse refuses to leave the bedside and dotes on the ailing partner. Many of them, like my parents, have a 50-plus-year marriage. I am hoping to develop the same kind of loving relationship. I want it to be the kind that can be eternal.
I have come to the time in my life when I want to surround myself with people who are positive, make me laugh, help me forget the bad, and help me focus on the good. I am kind, loyal, and supportive of those who treat me well. Life is too short to be anything but happy. "Falling down is part of LIFE. Getting back up is LIVING." I am living and looking for someone to share the journey.
