Hi there. I'm 6th generation LDS and have held most church callings, including at high echelons. I have a permanent, undeniable testimony of the atonement and restored gospel but I am more tolerant, understanding and less rigid that that description might imply. Professional,personal identity includes: Retired military officer, Educational Psychologist, Teacher, Counselor, unconventional, intellectual cowboy, warrior. Cherish simplicity and nature more than society and honors of men. Admittedly, am a bit calloused and reclusive in emotions because of tough, military experiences, violence and painful marriage, but I still have a fantasy or hope and embers within, for romance, and a low stress, simple, compatibility based on mutual attraction and celestial principles. I'm strongly, independent and want a wife not because I need her but because joy, humor, learning, intellectual contemplation and spiritual experiences, are best when shared. I am becoming more of a marshmallow every year. Accept my best wishes.
