Hi I'm Paul

I'm a hard working individual, I love life, my family, LOVE Husker football and I'm proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to the most beautiful woman in the world, Sonja. We got married in 2010. I'm father of 2 biological kids, Step-dad to 5 kids, and pseudo-dad to 6 kids! We take in kids that have a hard home life. I used to serve in the military, joined the Army out of High School and ended up in Germany for 9 years. I loved it. I speak a little German, enough to communicate. Sometimes me and my wife speak it to go over the kids head, lol haha. Got outta the service and ended up in Nebraska. where I joined the church. Been a member ever since and it's a great life. I love swimming, bowling, and hiking when I get the chance because of my busy work schedule. But family and God are number 1!

Why I am a Mormon

One of the main reasons why I became a Mormon is because I needed to find direction. I had questions like "Why am I here, where am I going, is this all there is, is there life after death?" The Plan of Salvation answered these questions for me, it gave me answers to those questions! I'm more focused because of the Church, I'm more driven because of my faith. And I love being married to my best friend for ALL eternity.

How I live my faith

Because I am a member of this church, I hold the calling of working with young men as a assistant scout master. I love teaching them about life's challenges and how to get them through their next step. Because I have Jesus Christ in my heart it helps me to be a better person. I want to share that feeling with everybody! As the days go on my faith and testimony grows.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Because it not only builds the church, but it helps those that are in need. Because Jesus Christ gave us everything He had, at least we can give back 10%. Tithing was difficult for me at first, but then I had a faith-building experience. We were asked to pay tithing, it was $30. I had bills to pay though. I decided to pay tithing instead. The next day we received a $100 check from insurance in the mail. I had no idea it was coming! Some may say "well that money was yours anyway" but it's a blessing because we had no idea it was coming in. Paying tithing is a blessing. Show more Show less
