Hello. I am interested in connecting with people
who share the same values. LDS singles are few and
far between in the Northeast. I love the church.
It buoys me up and has been an important part of
being a single parent for many years.
I love to be adventurous. My first degree is
in Biology, and I marvel at the natural world. My
list of places to get to include Alaska, Canada,
Hawaii, Australia, Puerto Rico, the Amazon, Tibet,
As an adult convert, I have not been on a
mission. But, I do hope to one day use my
professional skills to go on a welfare mission.
After working for an ambulance company in the
field for years, I returned to school to get my
Masters Degree. I love my profession as a Nurse
Practitioner because I have always wanted to help
people. Working in pediatrics provides many
opportunities every day to help families live a
healthier, more balanced life.
Being a mom is a big part of who I am. My son,
15, and I enjoy doing many things together. It is
a privilege and a blessing to be a part of and
witness his growth into an amazing young man. One
of my favorite relationships (besides mom and
guide) with my son is as baseball coach and
player. We love when baseball season rolls around
It has been an interesting road which has
brought me to here. I look forward to discovering
where the road will lead to.
[b]Describe your dream house.[/b]
My dream house would be surrounded by trees and
have a large entry way with a huge central open
tank for turtles and fish, a huge fireplace of
natural stone, a room with great natural lighting
for painting, a mud room for a pottery wheel, big
closets and windows, an attached glass room for a
garden complete with butterflies, fountain, and a
I would never choose a big home over the
opportunities for experiences. Just make it
comfortable, filled with love and pictures of
[b]What's your favorite animal? Why?[/b]
My favorite animal is the lumpback (misspelled to
clear the filter) whale. How can I convey my
facination with this extraordinary creature? We
know so little about them, but the beauty of their
movement in the seas, their songs, and their
relationships between mother and young is utterly
amazing. A life dream would be fulfilled if I
could swim with this keeper of wisdom.
[b]Describe one of your life philosophies.[/b]
Never expect more of someone else than you expect
[b]Ignoring the political meanings of the terms,
are you conservative (things should remain the
same) or liberal (change can be good)?[/b]
I am a liberal. It is very hard to successfully
argue that things as they are now are as good as
they can be. People progress, families progress
generation to generation, and societies also grow
and mature. Our collective social understanding
continues to increase, always.
[b]Would you like to be rich?[/b]
Sure. Just imagine the freedom from financial
concern. I would feel so free to help others and
to travel and marvel at this amazing world. I
would contribute to great causes. I would buy
land, but not a Jaguar. I would build an activity
center for the youth, etc. Of course, now we're
talking beyond rich.
[b]If you could change one thing about your past,
what it would it be?[/b]
Marrying too young.
[b]How do you feel about R rated movies?[/b]
It depends on the reason for the R rating.
Schindler's List, as an example, should be seen by
everyone when mature enough.
[b]What kind of people do you not enjoy being
I dislike people who are controlling, continually
negative, blame others for their circumstance,
[b]What does the world need most?[/b]
[b]Describe your all-time favorite day.[/b]
I love a day when visiting out west in the sun
with family and friends. Ideally we're rock
climbing and everyone has brought along a
smorgishborg of goodies for a feast. Lots of
laughs and fun. Get me outside.
If one must be indoors... light up a fire and play
games with a bunch of happy people, and of course
a smorgishborg of goodies.
When alone... give me an awesome storm to watch,
or run around in.
[b]You're laughing at a friend's joke and you
snort. Are you embarrassed? What if you're in a
dark movie theater?[/b]
I laugh more. Hopefully they find it funny, too.
But, please tell me if there's something stuck in
[b]How do you react to people with different
opinions, values or lifestyles? Do you have
I know a great diversity of people. Thankfully, my
son has followed suit and has friends from a wide
variety of backgrounds. Our town is very diverse
ethnically and socioeconomically. I know many
people whose lifestyle I respect but wouldn't
choose. Why would I insist that others agree with
mine? Genuinely good people live all kinds of
ways. I like people who can allow room for others
and not feel threatened by a differing opinion.
Why should any one of us assume that we have ALL
of the answers? Once a person tries to impose
their opinion or is intolerant or violent toward
another, I lose respect. Invite and explain, but
don't impose or force.
[b]Do you give anonymous gifts or do secret
The anonymous can be the most satisfying, and it
can't be refused. I love having a fun secret.
[b]How much does your comfort zone control
I like to stretch beyond my comfort zone. My life
was way too boring when I didn't.
[b]What relaxes you?[/b]
rain with fat raindrops, candlelight, soft
symphonic music, hand/foot massages, yoga, amazing
skies, the flower no one else would have
[b]Do you prefer the ocean, mountains, plains or
Though access to a city is great for shows,
concerts, museums and the like... give me the
mountains away from big crowds, exhaust and
cement. Let me roam, climb, breathe.
[b]What foreign language do you want to
I would love to become fluent in sign language.
[b]Describe your greatest fear.[/b]
Being unable to rescue my son from a life
[b]Are you adventurous? In what ways?[/b]
Adventurous things I have done include... going to
Belize with my sister without plans, not sure if
we would meet up with other friends there, diving
the blue hole off Belize, rappelling down a
waterfall, bungie jumping 180 feet (once),
canoeing 50+ miles on the Erie canal in 3 days.
I'd love to go caving; hike the Appalacian trail
or part of it; travel the Amazon with a research
crew; travel to remote areas; white-water rafting;
do welfare trips to Africa, South America, or
[b]What makes a person attractive to you?[/b]
I like a get-off-the-couch kind of person who can
also slow down, great sense of humor, fun-loving
and energetic, smiles a ton, makes great eye
[b]What kind of music do you like?[/b]
symphony, rock, pop, acoustic guitar, new age,
marching band, big band, swing (in no particular
[b]What makes you laugh?[/b]
Other people laughing. Isn't it great how
contagious laughter can be?
[b]Would you ever dye your hair?[/b]
My son can color his hair any color he wants
(gotta pick your battles and give lots of room for
safe expression), so far he's only had me
[b]Do you wear hats?[/b]
If I can't bathe (ie. canoeing 50+ miles)... or if
I'm skiing... or coaching ball, etc.
