Hi I'm Paul M.

I am a Canadian Mormon.

About Me

I am in my late 30's and I am married to a wonderful wife with three very energetic boys. We live in Southern Ontario Canada and I'm an Electrician by trade.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother joined the church when she was little, but married a non-member . So my parents decided to let their children choose for their selves what to join. When I was in my late teens I decided to investigate the church. Because of my mother taught me a little at a time when I was growing up. I slowly started to believe. By the time I was in my late teens I realized I was missing God in my life and didn't belong to a faith. It was after reading the book of Mormon and praying about it that I truely start to believe that it was all true. When I was in the missionary Training Center in Provo Utah getting trained to serve a mission as a missionary, one missionary challenged me to pray to know if the church was true. At first I was a bit set back thinking that obviously I already believe, but I decided to take the chalenge. That night I nelt in prayer and began to ask God with all my heart if what I was doing was right and that if what I was going to share with the people of the San Diego area was true. That night I felt the Holy Ghost so strongly testifying to me that it was true. I felt so good that night I slept like a baby. I then realized that even though I already believed I could ask any time and I can get a confirmation from God to what is true.

How I live my faith

I had many opportunities to serve in the church. My greatest opportunity was to serve a two year full-time mission in the California San Diego. It was such a spiritual experience seeing how much the gospel changed peoples lives. I really felt the Lord guide me and others to those that were searching for the trueth. It helping me secure a strong believe in God and his church.
