Hi I'm Paul

I was a Collegiate Athlete. I am a Medical Student. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I played Division I College Baseball while I went to school, and received my degree in Biochemistry. I am now in Medical School, training to save lives as a Physician. I am married and my wife and I have our first beautiful baby BOY on the way! As you can see from my picture, I now enjoy riding the rapids in my White Water Kayak, and any other activity that will get me out of the library and into nature with my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in another faith, and while I am extremely grateful for everything that I was taught, and how I was raised, I felt something missing in my life. I was drawn to the Church by the wonderful examples of happiness and love that members showed, all around me. I know that the blessings that are felt, seen, and shared by me and my family, because we have His Gospel in our lives, are something that cannot be felt, seen, or shared any other way. I am a Mormon because I am a better person knowing where I have come from, Where I am striving to go, And how I can get there. I know that my wife, children, and I can be Together, Forever, and there is no greater Joy than knowing that!

How I live my faith

As stated before, I love playing outdoors, in nature. I am a leader in the Boy Scouts of America, and sharing this love with the youth of the Church and Community. I have grown as a person by fulfilling opportunities that the Church has given me to teach, lead, and learn.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Like any relationship, communication is key. In order to know our Father in Heaven, we must speak with Him, and listen to what He says. Through the Power of Pray, we can speak with Him today. Through the Holy Ghost and the Prophet on the earth, we can listen to what He says. Show more Show less
