I hope to find someone (pretty close to my age) who can take me to the temple, loves children - wants more, and if you truly care about your health, both spiritually and physically. As my profile read, I am a single mother of two young school-aged boys. I need to trust that person to love me and my boys. In fact, if you keep reading my profile, and you match the description below, then you will. It may look like high expectations, but I live my life that way, and I wouldn't want it any different. ("This does not happen overnight.") I am serious!
I loved my mission! It has been a while. (The years keep passing by), but I strive to keep the missionary glow in my thoughts, actions, and hope that I can help others find the peace and happiness that the Gospel brings. I am fully committed to the Gospel, and I have only joined this site to let "that" person know that he can find a good wife who is currently living in New Mexico (not from there though) and take her to the temple.
I know that I need to do my part to have an eternal marriage, and I am only interested in a person who wants to work on this for himself, as well. I believe this includes personal spiritual and daily preparation, and then spending time with one's spouse and family in studying (and living) the Gospel together.
I desire to marry someone who loves the Gospel equally or more than me, and is fully committed to marry for eternity - to enter the temple worthily, because of many years of living a truly virtuous life and is committed to that no matter what; someone who loves others and desires to serve them in the capacity that the Lord would want - His family, His neighbors, His Ward Family, Strangers, etc.; someone who seeks to have balance in his life in living The Family Proclamation, and who follows the prophet in every manner of living.
I mention "years" of living a certain lifestyle, because although I believe in reconciliation, I also know the impact of keeping the commandments in [your] youth (Alma 35:37), and how that influences the choices one makes toward personal worthiness and personal preparation.
I do not regret saying that I prefer to be very careful with what music I listen to and what movies I watch. (I always have been that way.) I hope that my future husband feels the same way. To me, what we watch and put into our minds only strengthens our Spirit. In fact, with the proper perspective, we are able to watch where we spend our time. Therefore, I raise my children in the same way, and I guard the time they have for any computer games.
I recently moved as you may have noticed. I feel that you would need to move to the city or very near where I live in order to truly get to know you. Online dating just doesn't usually work out, (although it is a good start.) I understand that for dads with children and time sharing, that can be difficult. That is one main reason why I couldn't leave the state for years, but finally could at least move and get a good full-time job to allow this move.
I would like to also add that if you are serious about wanting an eternal relationship, you would make the move in order to strive for this opportunity. (I think dating would be challenging, but worth it if it happens in the proper way and for the right reasons. It could take more than a year. I guess that all depends.) I wouldn't mind moving when the time comes if that is what is right, and I sure do not desire to be a career woman, only a full-time mother and wife.
