Hello! Life has been challenging for a couple of years, but I am adjusting to this phase of my life. I am enjoying getting to know people and experiencing new things.About me: I have three wonderful children, 1 at home with me full-time and 2 in college. I love to spend time with them. I have a degree in Elementary Ed and I work for the state. The daily demands of parenting and working keep me busy, but it is a good kind of busy! I am sure many of you can relate. ;-) I love to read just about anything. I love to cook (especially for people who appreciate it more than my kids! lol) and also to bake. Painting and drawing is a hobby I love, and it keeps me centered and brings me peace. I am a happy person and I love to laugh and tease. I grew up with all brothers, so teasing came with the territory! I truly enjoy spending time with the people I love. It doesn't matter if it is a crazy adventure or washing the dishes together... I just like to experience life with those I care about. For me, the most important things in a relationship are a mutual love for and commitment to the gospel of Jesus Christ and a shared sense of humor. With those two things any trial can be overcome! I hope to share this love for the gospel with a man who is fully committed to his covenants and honors his priesthood and understands what a precious responsibility and gift it is. I am a laid-back, patient person who loves life! I find joy in watching my kids catch fireflies and hanging out together laughing about silly things. Family movie night, reading scriptures and attending church, and walking the dogs all are parts of life that make my life full and complete. I would love to share this too!
