Story: A few years ago, a bunch of the fam was together reading scriptures and my brother turns to Grant, then 6, and asks, "Do you know what it means to be accountable?" Grant looks pensive, then lights up, "Sure, you eat people." We died laughing. Kids confusing "accountable" with "a cannibal" - priceless.
On a recent birthday, a couple of my hometeachees made this list of what they appreciate or see in me:
Honorable priesthood holder
Easy to talk to
Witty / entertaining
Successful in your career
Magnify your callings
Always looking for ways to improve and progress
Love of learning
Willing to change
Inclusive of others
Sincere / honest
Not an exhaustive list, but a pretty good one. I do have a voracious thirst for learning and like to think. And I have a zeal for life and experiencing things and the world - and appreciating. I'm also a doer, a giver, empathetic, patient, and engaging. I like balance. I believe in being a member missionary and attending the temple.
Favorite art: Winged Victory of Samothrace, Washington at VF.
Favorite vacations: lake/beachhouse, international (I prefer a cultural vs. a "touristy" experience), camping, roadtrips, cabin or cruise...
Enough to get a conversation going?
