I am a loving mother of three (two at home). I serve in the Young Women's program in Jefferson, OR, although I live in Albany, OR. I love to be happy, go to church, and be able to discuss the gospel freely at home. I don't like to argue about silly things.
I love my home to be clean, and to make my home a place of safety, reverence and love. I love all people, especially seniors. I hold a lot of family and friend parties, especially around the holidays. I am a baker, seamstress, cook (all kinds of foods), and bowler.
I like church callings, emergency preparedness, and being outdoors and inside. I don't hunt or fish, but I love the meat, and would love to keep the home fires burning for you, have warm food on the table, and have a loving disposition ready when you get back. I don't want to be a hunting, fishing or sports widow, though.
I love to laugh at life, talk with my companion about our future and the gospel, hold fun family home evenings, play games with our family, and sit as a family at the dinner table as a rule.
I like to get up around 8 AM to clean, finish projects on Saturdays if we are not going anywhere. I like my home clean inside and out and would include our vehicles. There is nothing like having a clean car ready to go for our date nights, games and activities, taking the kids places, church activities, etc.
I care about people outside of my family (work, church, homeless, etc,) by trying to help them and consider their feelings.
I LOVE to dance, and would like to take dance lessons with a man who truly loves to dance with me. I would like him to take and swing me around like we were teenagers again. I also love to be goofy. I have friends who think that they can't do certain things like dance or sing in public without drinking alcohol first. I am glad that I don't have to drink alcohol to feel confident in front of people, public speaking included. I don't have a problem giving talks, and I share my testimony when the spirit touches me.
Most important to me: I really want my soul mate to take me to the temple to be sealed for time and all eternity. I have been married 3 times; 2 to members, and 1 non-member. They have never wanted to take me to the temple. I have always had to go alone or with ward or youth groups, and it was lonely and sad for me. I don't like feeling that way in the temple. My patriarchal blessing says that I will have a holy Melchizedek priesthood holder take me to the temple of the most high. That has not happened for me yet. My greatest wish is to find that special son of God that can fulfill this temple promise for me, and to love me for the rest of this life and eternity.
I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and I respect them dearly. I want to live with them again and I know that to do that is to make him first, then my husband second, and our children third.
While in the Portland, Oregon temple with the youth, I was standing in my beautiful, lacy, white dress, a thought occurred to me. Heavenly Father is our King, and I am his daughter, so that makes me a princess. Now I just need my prince in white. See, I can be a princess one day. ;0)
