This is a tub I built for my wife after she hurt her back at work and needed somewhere to soak and relieve tension. Our indoor tub is small and didn't work well enough for her to get any benefits of the hot water or the bath spa.

I'm not going to hit the town with single ladies and couples find it awkward just inviting you over. I believe when you die, you die, and you live on in memories and hearts. Here are my thoughts as someone who grew up with a non-mormon father and as someone who married a non-mormon girl. Their values and the values of popular western culture are wildly disparate, which can be tough for them to navigate early in life. No easy answers here.
