Hi I'm Paul

I'm a retired law enforcement officer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a native Californian and am happily married. We are the proud parents of four grown children. I enjoy the outdoors, tinkering, fixing and building things. I am kind of a jack of all trades and master of none. As our family grew so did our home. That gave me the opportunity to learn new skills, work along side my family, friends and church family. I enjoy helping and serving others which can be anything from a day helping in their yard, helping with a move, or just delivering a plate of cookies or passing along a friendly smile.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church I was exposed to other religions from other family members, neighbors and friends as I grew up. Being a Mormon is a choice. No one forced me to be one. It is a decision that has been an anchor and guiding beacon for me as I have developed a relationship and my testimony of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I will always be grateful for the blessings it has brought me as I have encountered life's various challenges.

How I live my faith

I have served over the years in our young men's program which includes boys from the ages of 12-18. I feel fortunate to have been involved in their lives at such a crucial time when there are so many choices and decisions that will affect them far into their futures. I was lucky enough to have great examples and mentors as I grew up and this time together gives me the chance to give back and provide Christlike service. The LDS church is also largest supporters of the Boy Scout program. The wholesome goals and programs of the church and the boy scouts go so well together.
