I took a long break and am returning. I haven't paid my membership yet but will soon. 7/21/15
Family is important to me.
My dream is to be able to have large family activities. I want to fill 4 or 5 rows at church during a blessing. It just opens you up to more love. You can never empty my love bucket.
The gospel is my top priority.
This is the grand why. I am most comfortable when I am serving or studying the gospel.
I love to be out in nature.
How can you deny the existence of our Heavenly Father if you spend anytime outdoors? The evidences are innumerable. You can escape all of the stresses in life just by walking through the woods or forest.
I am generally a quiet person. I tend to think on a deep level. Friends say that when I speak that it is usually of some importance. I do have a silly side but only with those closest to me. I love to make people smile. I used to think I could make someone happy but that is a personal choice. I like to surprise friends and family. I can be a practical joker but not at some ones expense. I will always be at the rescue of anyone that seems defenseless. There is probably a lot more but I am not the one to ask.
Our Heavenly Father is beyond real. I am sad to find that it took a surprise divorce to reveal this to me. I have never been left alone and without comfort. I am a convert and already had a strong testimony of the restored gospel. I joined the church when I was 19. I know that Jesus Christ is the very Son of God. He is our Redeemer. All blessings here and for eternity are made possible by Him. The Book of Mormon is the key to the fullness of the gospel. I am thankful for the knowledge of these things. It makes it pleasurable to serve in what ever calling comes my way. It is an honor to follow a prophet and any leader that blesses my life. I look forward to the days ahead knowing that I am blessed to be a part of these times. Missionary work is my first love but I have grown to love the callings that I now have. My hope is to eventually find someone to share these things with for the rest of this life, through the millennium and throughout eternity.
I love to do anything outdoors. I have been involved in auto racing of many types for most of my life. I walked away from it because most of the competitive racing is done on Sundays. I still love working on hot rods and street cars. I like movies. You might even catch me with a tear in my eye if you are with me while watching one. I am tough when it is needed but at heart I'm a softy. I would like to take up golf. I used to be quite active in recreational sports, basketball, volleyball, and even softball. Two of my kids raced and two were athletes. I would love to be involved in the future with my grand kids activities. The thing that I dreamed of most were large family activities. So I hope to make that come true with future family by combining mine with my future eternal mate. I would like to find someone that can whip me back into shape with both diet and exercise. I love working in the yard. I enjoy doing home improvement. but I mostly like doing anything as long as I am with the one I love.
