Hi I'm Paula

My husband and I are owners of a veterinary practice and stay busy in the community where we live. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a busy mom of 4 children, a business owner and can often be found in the classroom at one of the schools substitute teaching. I am finishing my Bachelor's Degree with Utah State University. I married my husband before he was a member of the church, but was lucky and he joined before we had children, so we are now an eternal family. My family has seen many struggles, but each one has brought us closer to each other and taught us the importance of having our Savior, Jesus Christ in our lives. I love the gospel and the emphasis on family and centering our homes around Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but didn't really gaina testimony until near the age of 15 when I had to decide for myself if I really believed what I was taught as a young girl. It was realizing that the people who attend the church are not perfect and therefore I was not attending church for the social aspect but because I truley knew that the Church of Jesus Christ taught the true principles of God. I believe that Joseph Smith was given the gift of translation and brought forth the Book of Mormon for all of us to learn more of the teaching of Jesus Christ. It teaches us more about the history of our world and the people who have lived here. I know that by living the gospel blesses my family each and every day and we have been guided into directions we never would have done without the promptings of the Lord showing us what path he wanted us to take.

How I live my faith

I am a leader in the ladies group at church and help organize montly activities for all to attend. When working with the youth at school I try to encourage the students to clean up their language and talk to young ladies about proper dressing. As a family we try to read from the scriptures daily to further our knowledge of Jesus Christ. As a husband and wife team we encourage our children to live standards to help them grow to be responsible young adults and contribute to the community in a positive way.
