Hi I'm Paul

I'm married to my best friend, have 6 beautiful kids, can sell sand to Arabs and ice to Eskimos, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in NSW, married a beautiful Perth girl and did a degree in psychology before becoming a salesman (which I love more than anything else). I have six amazing children who I just love spending time with, and took with my wife and I on a trip around Australia to show them the wonders of our beautiful country. I see myself first as a husband, then a father, then everything else stems from that. I love the ocean (bodyboarding), Rugby League and in fact enjoy almost all sports. I enjoy playing Basketball and Touch Footy with my kids each week.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon since I was 8 years old and have grown up with the most wonderful values that have affected my life for good. I truly believe that being married with the gospel in my life has helped me to be a better, less selfish husband, a better father to my children and overall a greater contributor to my community. I am thankful that my children are growing up with the values of compassion, service, temperance, kindness and charity towards others. I cannot think of a better way to live a balanced life than to have the gospel.

How I live my faith

Throughout my time in the church I have had the opportunity to be able to be involved in many responsibilities. I had the opportunity to serve a two year mission for the church when I was 18 and since that time have been involved in a variety of capacities, including serving in the Youth program, the missionary program, as a Bishop, and as a Sunday School teacher. All of these responsibilities have given me a great understanding of the nature and value of service to others. I am so thankful that church is not a 1 day thing. For my family, it is part of our daily lives.
