About Me:

In marriage 3 words spell success, "Friendship, Friendship, Friendship." I am Retired, yet not tired, active in life, but not out bungee jumping. Like to be spoken to with compassion and return 10x the favor. Seek to do good without any return. My heart's desire is having a sweetheart willing to walk with me on the same path as I walk with her equally yolked. Have lived on 4 of the 7 continents and spoken 5 different languages. I like the phrase, "You can have what you want or you can have what the Lord wants for you." I have worn many occupational hats from education, contractor, businessman, inventor, writer, publisher, greenhouse owner. If you desire a man who still wants to achieve many goals, is a hard worker, desires to serve in priesthood callings, loves and plays with purpose, has an ever brighter future than the past, then I am him. Learning and running as fast as I can to keep up with daily challenges is a full time effort, but a joyful one. Yet, I do have the nostalgia for a more youthful time when it was no effort to ride a 10-speed bike for hours and never be winded or tired after a 2 minute rest period. However, people in my family have lived to be 107 years old so I am looking forward to the next 40 years with a marvelous companion at my side. I like humor! I abhor contention and arguments but do like an engaging discussion with divergent ideas and opinions to try to discover greater truth. Absolutely committed to following Heavenly Father. See 4 Nephi and its beauty to understand the feelings of my heart. I love a good basketball or football game on Saturday, but I am not addicted to sports. I love a good road trip & will gas up the car instantly to drive across the country if needed. Words that describe me: committed, determined, humble , kind, inventive, goes the extra mile to serve, patient under stress, valiant, hard worker, always improving & learning, studious, fun loving, affectionate, cuddly, goal achiever.

Who I'd Like to Meet:

Looks for opportunities to serve without being asked. Willing to forgive and not hold grudges. Gentle to be entreated to study together "Come Follow Me" and follow the prophet without hesitation or reservation. Able to overlook my foibles as I am willing to do the same for her. Soft, gentle and spiritual; this is because these are the traits that give me comfort and peace to be with a lady of quality. I know that you girls are angels and this, because one of you might think me worthy enough to stand beside you. Puts God first in her life. Loves the temple and family. Would enjoy cooking and sharing the kitchen with me unless she thinks that is not something she wants to do. I love cooking. Knows what she likes but is sweet enough to know that the best marriages take a great deal of compromise by both sides to succeed. Gently advises me with overwhelming love that I am wrong (often I am wrong) so that my heart melts with her sweetness, thus giving me courage to improve. Willing to place Father and His commandments first in her life as I am willing to do the same for her. A person who is not ashamed to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and stand up for His truths with honor and dignity.

How I feel about The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints:

I am totally committed come what may. Covenant keeping is the only option. Knows who she is as a covenant daughter of God and willing to stand shoulder to shoulder with a covenant keeping disciple son of God. Desire to walk the covenant path even though neither of us is perfect but honestly seeking to improve from day to day even though setbacks happen and needing to endure to the end in the full heat of the sun. This is the most difficult part of the test to see if they will do all things that the Lord their God shall command them. As the wisdom of the ages lets us know so surely. The golden years are increasingly made of lead as we start to increasingly see our mortality. Nonetheless we keep a sense of humor through it all, cane in hand if and when we are 105 years old together, but with smiles on our faces. Jesus came to the earth so we could forgive others, repent of our sins, and be resurrected. I am trying to take full advantage of the first 2 items presently, and the third someday. Sometimes I just wish we could all be friends and have peace in our hearts towards all people.
