Hi I'm Paul

I'm 18. I grew up in California. I love the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California. I am am the middle child and i love spending time with my family. I enjoy all sorts of activities from camping to surfing. I swam competively for 5 years and i love being in the water. Right now i am a missionary for the Church and i am in Seattle helping people come closer to God.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church with parents who were very involved. Like everyone, it came to a point where i had to know for myself if this was the right place for me. During the time i was contemplating this, my father had an accident and fell 2 stories and almost died. I remember the night that had happened vividly. He was in the hospital, not sure if he was going to survive or not, and i was at home. I remember praying and asking God two things. If he was there, and what was going to happen to my dad. When i was praying i received an overwhemlming sense of peace that everything was going to be all right and that God knew exactly who i was. That experiance showed me that God does care about us and our families. My dad made a full recovery.

How I live my faith

I have been around the church my entire life. I have had oppertunities to help organize youth activities and currently i am serving a mission for the church. It has been wonderful to help everyone come closer to their Lord Jesus Christ. I know that i am not perfect, but i strive to live by what Christ taught and love one another and serve everyone.
