Hi I'm Paul Larson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 26 years to a girl from Butte Montana and have five wonderful children. I enjoy the outdoors and find that water and snow skiing are my favorite past time activities.

Why I am a Mormon

I find that in this world of great confusion my membership in the LDS church give me a strong foundation of great values that help me be a better husband and father. I am so grateful for my understanding of the Savior Jesus Christ and of His atonement, that there is a reason why we are here on earth. I love my family more than anything else and am grateful to belong to a church that teaches us how to be better fathers, mothers, and children. Families can be together forever!

How I live my faith

I have been a bishop which is like the pastor of a congregation and I have also been a sunday school teacher. In the church we serve in many different ways for a period time. We don't ask to serve as a bishop or sunday school teacher but we willingly accept those responsibilities as they are presented by our priesthood leaders. I also served as missionary when I was 19 years old in the hawaiian islands. Because there is no paid clergy every member has the opportunity to serve in one form or another. I believe that as we serve one another we truly learn more about ourselves and understand what true happiness is.
