I live in a small beach town on the beautiful Oregon coast. It can have its downsides, but there's always something going on, especially in the summer. Within close proximity there’s the ocean, lakes, rivers, trails, waterfalls, rain forest, mountains, snow, high desert, etc. I enjoy the outdoors, traveling, sports, camping, the water, ocean, hiking, theater, reading, cooking, good food, card/board games, satisfying my sweet tooth, or spending time with family. I believe life is a constant learning journey, and enjoy exploring and learning new things.
I graduated from BYU, and then completed a law degree and masters in business at the University of Oregon. I’m currently employed part-time as a city attorney, but also have a private practice in real estate, business, probate, and estate planning. I come from a large close-knit family with 7 siblings and 27 nieces and nephews who are all active in the church. I'm comfortable with someone bringing children into the marriage or having more. I'm also willing to relocate for the right person.
I don't mind being original and writing a message; however, it would also be nice to receive a response if I spend the time composing a message even if it says "no thanks." Just a thought :)
I rarely miss church or my meetings. The church and the gospel is a very important part of who I am. I've always been active and had a strong testimony of the church, so it's important that I'm with someone who has the same values. I've had the opportunity to serve in various positions of the church throughout my life, and enjoy it. My testimony of the church and the Savior are rock solid. I would love to attend the temple with my spouse on a regular basis. I loved my mission and look forward to serving a mission with my spouse when I retire. I'm not addicted or have issues with activities that would keep me from attending the temple.
Ultimately I’d like to find someone who shares the same interest and commitment toward the gospel and the church, and is committed to making the gospel a part of the home and relationship. I feel that being able to connect with someone on a physical, spiritual, emotional, and intellectual level is important to a successful relationship. I’d like to find someone who shares similar interests in the outdoors, traveling, family activities, life goals, etc. I’m interested in someone who is naturally positive and happy, and values their role as mother and in help making the home a better place.
I enjoy the outdoors such as hiking, camping, shooting, the ocean, or deep sea fishing. I like traveling and experiencing new places, especially with a lot of history. Would love to see Italy. I enjoy the theater or museums, but also appreciate the simple things like my children or a hike to a water fall. I enjoy stimulating conversation and can hold my own on most topics. I love politics, and current events which keep me busy in the community. For 6 years I did a weekly radio show on current events/politics, and was elected to city council a few years ago. I stay active in a number of civic, political, and volunteer organizations. Fall is my favorite time of year with the changing colors, holidays, football, and the Oregon coast storms. Although I enjoy sports, I'm not much into watching them on tv except if its BYU. Most would describe me as kind, thoughtful, caring, patient, fun, funny, respectful, dedicated, perseverant, intelligent, witty, etc. I'm a practical down to earth kind of guy. Laid back with a witty sense of humor. It takes a lot to offend me and I like a good practical joke. I'm training for my first half marathon this August in Welches, Oregon....any tips?
