Hi I'm Paul

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Utah as the oldest of 8 children. After Graduation from school I moved my family to Arizona

About Me

I recently retired as a dentist after 40 years in practice. I now have more time to spend with my wife of 46 years, my 5 children, and 7 grandchildren. My wife and I travel often and when we do we will take 1 or more of our children or grandchildren with us. I love to travel, hike to remote locations, and take pictures. Since the year 2000 I have made several humanitarian dental trips to Peru and Honduras. All but one of my children has been able to travel and assist me in this humanitarian work. We as a family love our Latin friends to the South of us and in our neighborhoods here at home.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised within a large, active Mormon family. I have always had a strong testimony that this is the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The gospel has had a profound influence for good in my own life and I have watched the gospel mold the lives of my own children and grandchildren for good. I count myself as a disciple of Christ.

How I live my faith

I am willing to stand a witness for my Heavenly Father His son Jesus Christ at all times and in all places. I am far from perfect, but I try to follow the pattern of Christian living that Jesus set. With the Savior's grace and mercy I hope one day to be found worthy to return home to my heavenly family. I have always been willing to give service to those not of my faith and I have served in callings within my church ward family to which I belong.
