I'm short and sweet. I'm a fairly "homey" woman, who likes to keep a nice house (Too much neatness and organization, however, is the sign of an obsessive personality, so I don't go there.) I like to cook for others and have friends over for game nights and movies. Home is my haven and I keep it sacred.
I love to laugh and sing. I have a good, clean, unpretentious sense of humor. The singing I come by honestly as both parents were singers and choral conductors. I studied and sang opera for more than a decade. Now, I just conduct my ward choir, as one of my three callings. I also sing with the Master Chorale of Flagstaff.
I am ridiculously intelligent and I hold excellent conversations. I have a wide variety of interests and talents so I'm never bored, nor boring.
I can be silly, but I'm often focused on my classes (taking nursing classes, for a fourth career) and on building the Kingdom. I'm dedicated to my faith and to my callings; as I said, I've three of them -- ward chorister, ward choir director and ward missionary. I study scripture every day and work to put what I learn into practice all the time with everyone I meet. I'm a brand new convert - just baptized late last August, 2013. I have my conditional temple recommend and am working and waiting for my full recommend. I love temple work and go to Snowflake to do baptisms as often as I can.
I'm compassionate, gentle, kind, happy, creative and, (did I mention?) a good cook. I like to sew and bead jewelry for friends and myself. I am affectionate and caring toward others. I have a bubbly personality in social situations but I'm just as comfortable being quiet and introspective or prayerful, either at home or in church.
I love with my whole heart, when I give it. The reason I've never been married, I'm sure, is that I was not a member of the Church and had not yet met my eternal companion, so marriage was not part of my world-view until now. This does not mean that I am unfamiliar with love and partnership. I have simply not done this dance in the right context; as in being a Latter Day Saint.
Though I've not had the opportunity to have children of my own, I love them. I helped raise two wonderful (now) young persons in my previous relationship. I would be happy, at this age, to help with grandchildren, but it isn't too late for me to launch one or two of my own or to adopt, either. I would love to have a family and children, again.
Thank you for viewing my profile. I hope we have an opportunity to get to know one another. Blessings!
