I was raised on a farm where I learned the value of hard work and family. I love my family a lot and have worked to keep a close relationship with them. I am the youngest of 7 children. Living with a large number of brothers gave me the opportunity to become a good athlete. I participated in basketball, volleyball, and track at the high school level and I played college basketball at a Junior College for two years. I enjoy golf even though I have yet to master the game even a little bit. I enjoy the outdoors and love to view God's creations as I spend time in the outdoors. I like to travel even though I haven't done a lot of that in my life.
The church is of major importance in my life. I love the gospel and have a strong testimony of it. I love to attend the temple and enjoy my time there.
I appear to others to be a shy, private, person but once you get to know me and I feel comfortable in your presence I am outgoing and fun.
