Hi I'm Paul

I'm a dad of four, a husband, and an orthodontist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Dad of 4 Husband Orthodontist Running Mountain biking Scoutmaster

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints but had to acquire a testimony of the restored gospel on my own. Going to church was something we did consistently as a family and I knew my parents had a testimony of the gospel. I never really questioned anything. As I prepared to serve a full time mission, I read, studied and prayed about the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith. There was no earth shattering experience, I just had a calm peaceful feeling that confirmed what I learned growing up was indeed true. There was clarity. It was the Spirit affirming the truthfulness of teachings I grew up learning as a child. This has now grown into a strong testimony of the restored gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday through my actions, conduct and speech. My interactions with people I meet through my occupation allow me to better the world in little ways. I also serve with the youth as an adviser for the young men ages 12-13. I also serve as the Scoutmaster for our troop. I also have the opportunity to visit families of our congregation with my son. We ensure they are edified spiritually and that their temporal need are being met.
