Hi I'm Paul

I love staying active. I love serving others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in law school. I run long distance. I play competitive racquetball.

Why I am a Mormon

There is nothing which gives me more peace in this life than following the teachings and example of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because I know for myself that the things taught in this church are of God. The Holy Spirit has confirmed these things to be true in my heart. It was not through a voice but rather came to me through a feeling of peace in my heart. I know that if someone sincerely listens to the message of this church that he or she can know for his or herself that it is the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to treat others as who they are, sons and daughter of the Living God. I am not perfect. When I make mistakes or hurt another person, I repent. I ask for forgiveness both from Heavenly Father and, in situations where another person has been hurt, I ask for forgiveness from that person. Another thing I do to live my faith is to not only read and study the scriptures daily, but I also attempt to apply the things taught in them to my everyday life, such as choices I make with respect to music, movies and internet viewing. There is a power in the scriptures. I try to work hard at all things I do. In other words, I try to put my best effort into all that I do. Lastly, I try to be a witness of Jesus Christ in all situations in which I find myself. I try to do this by being an example of what it is I believe. I try to "practice what I preach." I love living in the South. People for the most part have some religious back ground, some faith which they follow. This makes for some great discussions. I am grateful for all of the people around me, of my faith and my friends not of my faith, who strengthen me and give me courage to continue being who I am. One last thing that I find much joy in is fulfilling my responsibilities at church. Because no one is paid, each of the members is given an opportunity to serve the other members of the congregation through what is referred to as a "calling". My calling is to teach a lesson about the gospel once a month. I love preparing my lesson. The most joy comes when I am able to deliver the lesson and end up learning so much from the open discussion we have. I love following my faith.
