I grew up in Salt Lake and loved the family I was born to. My parents were active LDS for the most part. I enjoyed the mountains and so many good friends. I be active and get out a lot. I spent my youth camping, biking, traveling, studying, and working. I have been a faithful/worthy man dedicated to the church for my lifetime. Did all the things an obiedient, good hearted Mormon warrior does. High Council, Bishopric, Scoutmaster 14 years, etc...
I was in a toxic marriage with too high of expectations (Mormon Style) of me. Happiness wasn't an option in the relationship.
Married 27 years with much drama and strife. The church was weaponized and made the family weak. We have 3 kids that have been traumatized amidst the attempts to comply with the commandments of the prophets and local leaders. I love Jesus and the Bible. Never really did connect with the B of M on a heart level. I have found out the truth about The Prophet Joseph from the un-Mormon truths.
Now I find myself in a pickle...51 years old, 3 beautiful but doubting kids and definitely leaving the church. I still attend a nondenominational church and have embraced biblical Christianity.
I know that staying close to my values is where I will be safest because that is what I believe. I'm not heading off the deep end. I will soften the W of W a bit, but will seek out beautiful people who respect God and Truth.
Interests and Hobbies:
I love to travel the world. Fishing is good...all kinds. I love a good movie with dinner. Small talk is important. Hobbies include golf, home teaching (haha), window shopping with my daughters, Helping my kids, biking the parkway.
I really don't have too many hobbies as I have been restricted by the relationship till now. Freedom!
