This essay is the worst part! I've written and rewritten it a million times...So here it is- I'm a mother to three girls: one in college, one on a mission, and one at home. To say the gospel is extremely important to me would be an understatement. it is my guide and my source of joy and strength. I am a semi-retired adrenaline junky. I still love to ski, cliff-dive, gallop on horses...pretty much anything high or fast :) I am probably forgiving to a fault, competitive, and independent. I love to laugh and be silly (midnight Kroger cart swimming is the best!). I think dogs are one of Heavenly Fathers greatest inventions. Sunshine makes me happy. I love warm sand. Not that I don't like to cook (I'm actually pretty good), but I'd just as well eat cereal for dinner. I'm pretty easy going although I do like my home in order. I rarely get angry. I love sleeping in. Ideally, I'd like to find that man I can't live without. It's hard to characterize him- I haven't met him yet! I believe he'd be strong in the church, nonjudgmental, easy going but a hard worker, and have a good sense of humor.
