Hi I'm Paul

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married to my beautiful wife for five years. We have two-year-old boy that loves books, blocks, balls, cartoons, and running around outside like a crazy person. We are expecting a little girl in a few months; we can't wait to see her. I like most sports that I have tried--basketball, football, baseball, tennis, fishing (fly fishing), volleyball, ping pong. But now a days I mostly play golf. I like playing guitar (I own a Martin and I love it). I've done some composition but nothing interesting. I also enjoy sketching portraits. I studied mechanical engineering for my B.S. I am currently studying law. As much as I liked engineering, I like the law even more--but please don't hold that against me. I plan on pursuing a career in commercial litigation; no criminal or family law, thank you very much. I served a mission for my church in the Czech Republic. Although learning Czech was difficult, my mission was a great experience that I have thought about everyday of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for a number of reasons: I believe this to be Christ's church, possessing His authority and receiving His revelation; I enjoy and feed off of my association with other members of this church, receiving strength and wisdom to resist the evils of the world; I find answers to my questions (why am I here on earth, where will I go after I die, will I see my family again after death, etc.); and I become a better and happier person by living according to the principles I learn in this church.

How I live my faith

First of all, I am far from perfect at living my faith. That said, I do try to live in a way that reflects well on this church. That involves being kind to others; refraining from drinking, smoking, or taking other harmful drugs; and being completely loyal to my wife and family. I also serve as a leader in my area, organizing service opportunities, teaching, advising, and reporting back to my leaders.
