At the top of most high mountains there is a summit log. In it you will find notes and comments from past climbers and hikers. Mostly about the conditions, what route, and other general information. One of my favorite things to do is to climb these mountains and quote Isaiah Ch 2:2 in the log. I guess the reason I mention this is so you can have an idea of what my passions in life are. I love anything to do with mountains, climbing them or snowboarding down them, or both! But I love the Gospel so much more. It has meant so much to me. I have a very strong testimony of this church and everything about it.
I also have two beautiful kids who I love with all of my heart. Except on long car rides, then not so much. Ha! just kidding...maybe not. I love teaching them new things. My 8 year old daughter is an awesome climber! no fear whatsoever. Its kind of scary but in a good way. My 10 year old son is a tech genius who loves to go fly fishing with me.
I'm pretty easy going. I can chill at home and watch movies but I'm always up for an adventure. Exploring new places is my favorite thing to do. Especially if it involves mountains and rivers.
I love the church, everything about it. I read The Book of Mormon every day and never get tired of it, The temple is such an amazing place and I usually go once a week. Joseph Smith is my hero. I grew up in the church but most of my siblings and my Father have always been inactive, but this has never affected my relationship with them. I served in the Singapore Mission and spent most of my two years in Borneo. Greatest experience ever! I am looking for someone who feels the same way about the church as I do. Due to past experiences, I won't compromise on this one.
I love anything to do with mountains, rivers, or snow. National Parks are so awesome! I have been so lucky to have had the chance to explore most of them as a kid and I'm continuing that tradition with mine. My top three are Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Zion. I love to go backpacking. The John Muir trail from Yosemite to Whitney is next on my bucket list. I kind of don't want to do it alone, so I'm going to wait and see what happens. My top three hobbies are mountaineering, snowboarding, and fly-fishing.
