Hi I'm Paul

I've traveled America coast to coast and love it all. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm taking a break from college right now to serve as a missionary for two years. I'm from Rhode Island, born and raised and now I'm on the other end of the country! I'm a math major - yes, I heard that groan just now! - and like to help people to understand and even enjoy math. I am an Eagle Scout and as such, I enjoy outdoorsy things like camping, backpacking, hiking, and canoeing. Talking to folks and figuring out what makes them tick is a hobby of mine - that and people-watching.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a part of this church because I have felt, through the Holy Ghost, that it is true. I love the teachings of this church and following them has blessed my life incredibly. I don't know where I'd be without the direction and peace that this church provides that's why I'm doing my best to share what I've learned about God and our Savior with people as a missionary. It doesn't matter that it can be hard - and it can - if this church and its teachings are true, then nothing else matters.

How I live my faith

I do my best to live as Christ would have me live. This includes attending my church meetings weekly and living the commandments that you can learn more about on this website. I just got home and haven't been given a job - a "calling," as it's called - here in my student ward (congregation) yet, but I anticipate getting one soon.

Why is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints called Mormons or Mormonism?

Our church is referred to as the Mormon church because we believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God, as well as the Holy Bible. The Book of Mormon is a record of the ancient people of the American continent and their dealings with God. You can request a copy of it on this site and come to know it is true by reading and praying about it. It will change your life. Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

 Jesus Christ did indeed visit the Americas whether north or south we aren't exactly sure after his crucifixion and resurrection. That account is recorded in the Book of Mormon pgs 427-458. His coming is prophesied throughout the Book of Mormon and also in the Bible see St. John 1014-16. Show more Show less
