Hi I'm Paul

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Im a husband and a dad. I enjoy snow skiing, water skiing, cycling, windsurfing, creating things, sculpture, computers, and audio video. Though each of those activities are a lot of fun, most of my enjoyment comes from spending time with my family. Tonight we had a Nerf gun war, it was awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because following the teachings of the church brings me closer to my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. It provides me guidance and direction in what appears to be a troubled and difficult world. It provides a firm foundation of values, and principles upon which my wife and I can build our family around. It gives me hope, despite my imperfections, that I can be reunited with my loved ones in the presence of my Father in Heaven after this life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith how I live my life. One day at a time. Some days may be great, some days may be a great struggle. Attending church on Sunday, studying the scriptures, prayer, and fasting, give me the spiritual boost needed to deal with lifes struggles. The church provides so many meaningful ways to serve, be served, and to observe service. Through service in the church I feel joy and happiness in my life.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Paul
A testimony is simply a heartfelt belief, or conviction of something pertaining to spiritual things for which an individual feels they have received an answer to. A testimony can be as simple as "I believe God lives", or "I believe that Jesus is the Christ", or "I know that God loves us". These testimonies come from seeing God's influence in our lives or perhaps by receiveing answers to our prayers. Show more Show less
