Hi I'm Paris

I grew up outside of Boise, Idaho in a little town called Caldwell and grew up in the church there.

About Me

I am married to my beautiful wife of thirteen years and we are the parents of five wonderful daughters. By profession I am a CPA and work as the Controller for a medical device company. When I am not working I love to play and watch sports, read, play games with my family and do yard work around our house.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have always had a testimony that it was true. From my earliest memories I have always felt that the comforting of the Spirit as I thought and prayed about our Savior and His church. I have never had any amazing experience where I found out that the Savior lives or that Joseph Smith was a true prophet, instead I have always had a deep feeling within my heart and mind that these things are true. As I have gotten older I have had many experiences where I have felt the gentle reassurance from the Holy Ghost that the things I have known from my youth are true.

How I live my faith

As I have gotten older, I have had many callings within the church where I have had the opportunity to volunteer my time to teach and help others. Currently I am helping the Bears in our ward's Cub Scout pack and enjoy working with them. This is quite different than anything else I have done in the church and is quite different than what I am used to since I have five daughters and have not spent much time working with young boys.
