Hi I'm Paul

I live in Texas, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of three boys. I enjoy activities with my family. . .in the outdoors, swimming in the summer, movies, and just playing games or working around the house. I also enjoy technology and gadgets. Professionally, I work in training development and multimedia production.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I believe it is Christ's Church. He leads it today through living prophets and apostles. I have Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in His Atoning Sacrifice and Grace. I have learned this by the witness of the Holy Ghost and I know that if you read the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon, sincerely searching for truth, He will speak to your heart and mind. You can know these things too. My family means everything to me and I believe that God meant for us to create a little bit of heaven here on earth within our families. I have learned that families can be forever. My wife and I were married in God's temple and I know that we and our children, with Christ's help, will be together forever.

How I live my faith

Faith is lived through love, creativity, and hard work. I love my family, try to serve where I can and help those in need. I get up everyday and pray that God will help me make the most of it. . .then I get to work.

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

Paul
Well, the temple is different than our regular church buildings. The temple is a sacred space set aside for those who have prepared themselves and are ready to make further covenants (or promises) with God. So really, the answer to this question is, only some Mormons are allowed into the temples because only some are prepared to make the covenants available there. All who have prepared are welcome.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Paul
The Bible is part of our "standard works", which means Holy Scripture. In the English speaking world we typically use the KJV. I love the Holy Bible and Know that it contains the word of God. Show more Show less
