My grandma used to say, “No one likes to be around a sad person” and she was right!  I’m a naturally happy person that loves to smile and laugh.  I feel my greatest talent is taking a bad situation and finding the good things to keep a positive attitude.  Many nights I go to sleep with aching cheeks from laughing so much.

I love to be creative and see all the creativity around me.  I’m amazed by the talents out there.  I even started a successful blog to showcase all that creativity.  I love photography and capturing a moment to look back at and remember later.  I learned to sew at a very young age from my mom and it’s still something I love to do.  My grandma was a legendary cook and I picked up a few skills from her.  Cooking and baking are things I love to do (but I’m not a fan of doing dishes J ).

I love to be active and have been an athlete my whole life.  I learned how to dribble a basketball when I was three years old and played all the way through High School.  I love being outdoors and hiking in the mountains with my friends and family.  I love to take bike rides and walks and look at all the pretty old houses around our neighborhood.

I also have a deep love of learning.  I love to know about everything from little random facts to major historical events.  I got my degree in English Literature and picked up speed reading along the way.  This has become a really useful skill since I can’t put a book down once I pick it up.  I often read through the night without ever taking a break.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a very important part of my life.  I love the knowledge it gives me of who I am and what I’m here to do.  I love the Plan of Salvation and knowledge that I can be with my family forever.  I love the opportunity to serve that it gives and the direction it gives my life.

I love that I’m able to be home with my little girl and any other children we might be blessed with.  And I love my hardworking husband that makes it possible for me to have that opportunity.

Brad about Missy:

I thought she was cute so I dated her, so sue me. But what made me really attracted to her was how happy she was all the time. Her mother had passed away just a few weeks before I met her and I was amazed at how happy she was and how strong her testimony was in the gospel.  After our first kiss I could not stop smiling the whole night.

I love her even more now because of her dedication and love for me and our family. She is so active in home projects and family trips and I love it when she has all of her dreams planned out. I am a sucker to things that she asks to buy that I know we don’t need but she is so darn cute. She makes the house so nice and peaceful that I can’t wait to get home after work. She and Abi make me feel like a rock star that just entered the stage.
