Vernal, Utah, United States
About Me:

I am a respiratory therapist. That's what I do. But, this is who I am.
Before anything else, I am a member of Christ's church. He restored it through his prophet, Joseph Smith. Everything about this life is about what comes after here. I Love my Savior, because He first loved me. He is always there for me. I fail at what He wants me to do. Repeatedly! Every time I stand back up, He is there!! He always will be. That is the Jesus Christ I know. I completely lack perfection and He loves me anyway, and gives me the encouragement to keep going. I am usually harder on me than He is. Someday, when I grow up, I want to be like Him.
My Children are the joy of my life, and the reflection of Heaven that God sent to me. I have six. 19,18,16,14, 9 and 5. girl, boy, girl, boy, girl, boy. They will actively be my babies when they are full grown, with their own families. Means I get to embarrass them in front of their friends FOREVER!!
I am an artist, and I like to create with just about everything. One way I do that is cooking. I'm good at it. I am no longer thin. I love outdoors. I love the beach, the mountains, the desert... being out in nature. I stand outside in the rain. No umbrella. I'm weird. I sit and watch thunderstorms from the porch. I soak in God's creations around me. It centers me, gives me peace.
I am a sensitive man. I cry when the Spirit touches me, When I am grateful, when I grieve, when I feel joy. The world says that's not manly. I disagree.

I am here to find my best friend. I am looking for someone who loves Jesus Christ, and is striving to live His restored gospel. I am not looking for somebody that exemplifies perfection, or presents herself as having it all together. I am a human mess in process of becoming Christlike. I will not be perfect anytime soon, and I don't expect you to be. But, the journey to get there is so much more worthwhile with a like minded, like hearted partner with the same spiritual goals. That's what I am looking for in my friend. I want to find a woman who will go to church with me on Sunday, and nudge me to go the morning I just got off work, and the thought of staying home that day sounds pretty good. I want to find a woman who wants me to hold her hand as we walk down the street together. I want to grow a garden together, go grocery shopping together, snuggle on the couch watching movies, and have a popcorn fight with me, I want to find someone who will challenge me with her Disney movie trivia prowess. I want to find someone who will smile when they find the nonsense things I have added to her grocery list (like a piece of blue glass, lovely bit of string, a horseshoe nail. Extra credit if you know where that list comes from). I want a friend who wants to cook dinner with me, and is willing to sit and talk with me, at least for a while, as I smoke some pork shoulder in my smoker....all day. She will need to be ok sometimes with spontaneously dancing together, in the living room, even though we haven't gotten all the chores done yet. I need someone who will roll her eyes at me after another one of my ill-conceived dad jokes. She knows better ones. I want someone willing to play Apples to Apples with me, in epic, hilarious rounds! If you have played it, and love playing it, you understand. I want to find someone who is willing to let me love her, and show her I love her. I want my love for her to be important to her. I want to find my friend, who shows affection, and wants to show me she loves me. Showing, expressing love, spending regular quality time together, and looking out for each others happiness I feel are tremendously important to keep the tree of love growing between two people. If it isn't growing, it's dying. It takes two. if it isn't done together, it doesn't work. I want my dear friend to trust my love for her, and I want to trust in hers for me. That is so important to me! I want a friend to go through the daily events of just living, and I want a truly best friend who wants romance, and knows how necessary affection is in this kind of an eternal partnership. I believe that to make that kind of friendship an eternal partnership, that the two of us will have to become a we, working together through the good things and the inevitable hard things. It takes enduring, till the end. I want to become one of those couples that people don't say one of our names without at least thinking about the other. I want a forever friend, who believes we can grow to be better friends, and closer to each other for eternity, if we are willing to work on that goal together. I am looking for my partner, to sit on the porch with, while we watch many, many sunsets together, and grow old at each others side. And, both being people who know the gospel, and love the Lord, I want to find my true friend who looks forward to our next adventure, after this life is over. If you are out there, I'll be here until we find each other. I have been praying that we will.

LDS singles I'd Like to Meet:

To me, a great first date would be anything that allowed us to just talk, as ourselves. No pressure. When was the last time you became friends with someone when you were pressured to do it? Any lasting, worthwhile relationship starts with two people who both want to be friends.

Church of Jesus Christ:

If you read my intro, you know my testimony. Jesus Christ is the way home. He is the only way. He made it possible for imperfect people to come home, because he loves us, and He paid our way. No one else could. The scriptures are how we find Him, and find strength to keep going.
