Hi I'm Paul

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a small farm in south central Idaho with one brother and five sisters. I graduated from University with a masters degree in business administration. I have been married for 30 years to the love of my life. I enjoy gardening, woodworking, cycling, reading, and outdoor activities. I love to envision and create beautiful things. In my spare time I build cabinets and furniture, install landscaping, and construct/remodel homes and home additions.

Why I am a Mormon

When our Savior was on the earth he established his gospel which is a gospel of faith in God the Eternal Father and his Son Jesus Christ, a gospel of repentance, a gospel of baptism by emersion for the remission of sins, a gospel of receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost by the laying on of hands, a gospel of Priesthood authority, a gospel of continuing revelation through prophets and apostles. Through time that gospel was taken from the earth due to apostasy and replaced by the various doctrines of man that are seen among the various Christian denominations in the world today. It is my belief that there can only be one right way back to God. God would not be the author of all the religious confusion we see in the world today. It is therefore incumbent on each of us as individuals to search out and find that one right way. It is our responsibility to search for the truth and embrace it when we find it. I know that I have found that one right way in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I know that Christ’s gospel has once more been restored to the earth in its fullness, with Jesus Christ as its head. I know that God continues to reveal his will to us through a living prophet and apostles. I know that we can be cleansed from sin through the atonement of our savior and return to live with him eternally as we follow him and keep his commandments. This is the only way we can find true peace and happiness in this life and eternal life in the world to come.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the Savior’s example by helping others through service. I find that when I ask myself what would Jesus do if he was here and then act accordingly I am able to find peace and joy in my life. It is through service to our families, neighbors and friends, and those around us that we are able to overcome our personal challenges and become what our Father in Heaven wants us to become. We serve God best by serving his children.
