The gospel has definitely become the center of my life. It is my peace & keeps me focused on what really matters, which is my family, loving & serving others. I'll be honest, it has taken me a few hard lessons and years to get here, but I've always known that it was possible and that I would. I feel very blessed!
My three kiddos are the best thing I've done in my life! My son returned from serving his mission 6 months ago. It has been the greatest blessing to have the priesthood in our home. He has very recently been married and sealed to his childhood sweetheart! (Talk about relationship goals!) It was one of the happiest days of my life. I love my new daughter as if she were my own. I also have two beautiful teenage daughters, 15 and 18 years old, who keep me young and love to tease me. They are the cool girls I've always wanted to be!
I asked my kiddos to list words that best describe me. (Sorry about the length, but man did I feel so much love from them!)
Independent, faithful, genuine, grateful, positive, hard-working, nice, loud, passionate, bold, simplistic, assertive, truthful, compassionate, empathetic, straightforward, quirky & crafty! (They often tell me I'm beautiful, but I love that it wasn't on the list.)
I love laughing, so a sense of humor is awesome! I don't feel "old" and I don't believe that I ever will. I'm attracted to people of the same "young" mindset. I'm a no-drama kind of girl. I won't participate in fighting and will do my best to talk things through in a committed relationship. I was raised to never say mean things in the heat of the moment that can't be taken back. I don't hold grudges & I'm forgiving, for my own heart's sake.
I love trees, mountains and Utah skies! I love camping, but haven't been in years. I'm very talkative and make a lot of faces. I'm not at all athletic, but I'll play for fun. I started juicing over a year ago and I feel better than ever...I love it! I do still love to eat :) I love action movies, especially with car chases!!!
Although my career as a business manager requires quite a bit of daily structure and planning, I'm a bit less structured within my home life. I'm an ADD girl and if you're OCD, I might drive you crazy...just sayin'. I feel that home should be a haven for every member of the family. We don't always have to have plans. Sometimes the quiet nights at home are the best nights!
I am so looking forward to finding the right someone to spend my life and forever with!
