One of the things Dad used to tell us... "If something is worth doing, it is worth doing right" = words I try to live by. So I am giving "this" all another try, with, perhaps, a little more effort.
Hard to some one's self up in a paragraph or two, but here goes a try...
Of most importance, I am a Daddy to a most beautiful and loving 6 year old daughter. She is my number one, and my focus. I do my best to live up to the blessing of being her father, and to share with her my testimony of the gospel. I have a strong testimony established in both faith and knowledge. I recognize I have been given much, and do my best to live worthy of all I have been given.
Outside of that... I work a lot these days but am trying to find a balance and make time for a little outside fun. I have come to enjoy life and be able to find joy in a lot of things. Being outdoors, fishing, hiking and exploring are some of my favorites. I like to build, create, share and serve. I am pretty handy, as I grew up working along side a father who taught me to work both hard and smart. He could do just about anything, so I learned a great deal and am very capable of taking care of a home, and cars, and "fixing stuff" in general. I plan to finish designing my own home, with input of course, and build it someday. I am not a gamer, nor one who can sit and watch TV all day everyday -- but I can and often do listen to music all day (I get alot of visitors in my office stoping by to share in the ambiance of good tunes). I enjoy being productive, but just the same... I enjoy hard earned downtime (I love to travel and learn of and experience other cultures).
I guess I can say that while I can be reserved initially, I am not afraid to reach out or stand out when called for. I am definitely protective, and perhaps a bit old fashioned. I can be serious, but definitely have a sarcastic side as well. I like to laugh... and am looking for someone with whom I can do so. And if you can sing and or play piano, guitar or the like and cook... I am darn near sold. Yet experience has taught me a few things, and one of them is that I want to find someone with a firm testimony, and a recognition of the value of family, especially motherhood.
I am not expecting miracles, but am hoping to find some friends and see how things go... so message me!
