mental health group leader
How Hookup… Go to the Cheesecake Factory and talk and get to know each other. Then go for a walk along the Jordan River Parkway, and maybe catch a movie (my son can get us in free).
An awesome place I've visited
I hiked Mt. Rainier when I was a kid, and saw Mt. St. Helens before she blew up, that same year, scattering ash all over our lawn, house and car.
My perfect sunday
Wake up and start with family prayer. Listen to uplifting music and sing along while getting ready for church. Attend church with my family and enjoy participating and visiting with other church members. Come home, cook and eat a good dinner with family and friends. Go for a walk. Serve others. Sing hymns around the piano. Read scriptures with family and enjoy discussing them. Have family prayer before bed.
The movie I've watched the most times
Scrooge, the musical I love all versions of "A Christmas Carol" but I'm a musical theater major, so the musical one is best

A story you should remind me to tell you on our first date
