Hi I'm Paul

I am a Papa to my 6 children, I enjoy doing Aikido, I work at home, I'm married to my best friend, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Pennsylvania. My wife is my best friend and the funniest person I know. I have six wonderful children. I enjoy doing Aikido and spending time with my family. I work for a small software development company that I truly enjoy, and I live in Georgia.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church for as long as I can remember. My grandparents joined the church after being taught by missionaries. My father was baptised at age 13. He married my mother who was a member of the Catholic church. My mother made the decision to become a member of the Mormon church when I was about five years old. I was baptised at the age of eight and confirmed a member of the church by my Father. I earned my Duty to God, On my Honor, and Eagle Scout award through the youth programs offered by the church. I attended BYU after graduating High School. After two semesters, I made the decision to serve the Lord and left to serve a 2 year mission. The Lord chose to send me to the Dominican Republic Santiago Mission where I was given the opportunity share and teach the gospel of Jesus Christ. After returning home, I found my lovely wife, and we were married in the Salt Lake Temple. We have 6 children who we love dearly. (Most of the time) Why am I a Mormon?? All through my life I have been given opportunities to make choices that have taught me to know my Savior and feel of his love. With each milestone in my life my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ grows stronger. Don't get me wrong, I didn't always make all the right choices. But being a Mormon has taught me to rely on my Savior and look to Him for guidance. Being a Mormon brings joy into my life as I am given opportunities to serve others and share in His gospel. Being a Mormon gives me purpose and meaning in my life and provides me with the guidance and direction needed to know how to return and live with Him once again. Being a Mormon is simply who I am.

How I live my faith

Everyday is an adventure. There is always something new to learn and do. I think the most fun I have living my faith is when I spend time with the youth. This is probably because I still feel like I should be closer to their age than I really am.
