Hi I'm Paul

I live in Colorado. I just graduated from college and am now a systems engineer. I love to play and watch sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently finished my master's degree and moved to Colorado with my wife and toddler son to start working. I work for a defense contractor in the Denver area as a systems engineer. I love sports and am happy to live in a place with so many options to watch and play. I also enjoy tinkering with computers in my free time. I especially like to spend time playing with my son. I wish I could do that all day.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of how much sense it makes. Being a part of the church that Christ Himself established and still leads today is the most important thing in my life. Learning about the gospel has cleared up so many questions that I have had in my life about who I am and what I am doing here. Learning about Jesus Christ and His teachings helps me to know what to do everyday and helps me to know what I can be. It is not always easy to live the commandments and I have a lot of work to do to be better, but I know that as I strive to live better and be more like Christ, I will have a happier life and be able to help people around me be happier as well. I know that Christ has organized his church again and that anyone can be a part of it and feel the happiness of knowing that you have followed Jesus' example to be baptized, and can one day be with God and Jesus Christ and your whole family for eternity.

How I live my faith

In my local congregation I help with the 16-18 year old boys. I prepare lessons about the gospel to teach on Sundays and plan activities to do with the boys during the week. We have a wide variety of activities during the week from helping the boys earn their Eagle Scout awards to additional gospel lessons to playing basketball or going shooting. In addition to helping with the youth, I also visit a few assigned families in my neighborhood each month that also attend my church to make sure that they don't need anything like help around the house or on a project to more basic needs such as food or clothing. I enjoy visiting with these families and forming friendships with them outside of Sunday church services.
