Hi I'm Paul Howard

I grew up in California and now consider Arizona my home. I'm a mormon

About Me

I am happily married with four children who are wonderful and fun but also a lot of work. I love to play games and just relax in my spare time. I am a mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up going to church with my parents but I also had to know for myself that what I was learning was true. My first year in high school I had a strong desire to seriously read the Book of Mormon and ask Heavenly Father if it was true. One night while I was reading, I felt an overwhelming feeling that the book spoke the truth about Jesus Christ and I knew it was writting by prophets of God without a doubt in my mind. I had always believed it was true because it always gave me peace and comfort when I read but this time God spoke directly to my heart and I knew I would never be able to deny it.

How I live my faith

The gospel of Christ brings me happiness in my life. I don't see it as a life of restrictions but as a life of freedom. Freedom to choose between right and wrong with a clear understanding of the blessings and consequences of each. Freedom from addictions of alcohol, nicotine, and pornography.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Paul Howard
God has called prophets to the earth since the time of Adam to give us his word. It is critical that we have prophets to tell us what God requires of us and to teach of God, Jesus Christ, and His plan for us. The words of prophets are just as true in ancient times as they are today. This is why we study the bible and carry it with us as part of our standard literature. Show more Show less
