I love to bake and am famous for my chicken noodle soup, cinnamon rolls and other breads, cranberry salad (a family recipe), and other goodies.
I love my kids and have six beautiful redheads. I love being a mother. I also love being a grandmother and have three grandchildren so far with another on the way. My children are a joy to me.
I love the gospel. I love to go to the temple. I love my Ward family. I love the Book of Mormon. Every time I read it I gain greater insights. Someday I hope to serve a mission with my future companion.
I love to teach. I have been teaching piano for 9 years, swimming lessons for 5 summers, and just started teaching flute lessons. I'm finishing up my Masters degree so I can teach secondary English starting in the fall. I love kids of all ages and enjoy being around them. It is very rewarding to me to see my students learn and progress.
I love to read, especially teen and young adult fiction, and clean romantic stories.
I love flowers and bright, happy colors. I enjoy working in the yard and shoveling snow (believe it or not). I grew up in Florida so shoveling snow is still a novelty to me.
Music is important in my life. I enjoy musical theater and other cultural events.
I enjoy hiking with my kids and their friends. This summer I am looking forward to hiking my first "14-er."
Those who know and love me describe me as loyal, generous, patient, loving, funny, smart, and kind.
I am looking for a man who is a "mighty man of valor" (1 Chron 26:31), a "man of understanding" (Ezra 8:16, Prov 10:23), a man "mighty in judgment" (Ether 7:8),
