Hi I'm Paul W Goodrich

I'm a longboarder, a snowboarder, a brother, a friend, a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was manufactured in 1993, I have two brothers, one older and one younger. Yes, I am the most attractive one out of the crop. I have a burning passion for longboarding and snowboarding. I would do both all day every day if I could. I love my friends, don't get me wrong, but the thing that means most to me is my family. Yes, it may be broken, but it's still family. I have thee cutest little mom, she's single, gentlemen (; Don't think about it until you pass the interview though. Seriously. I am usually the accident prone one, after falling from a cliff while free-climbing, I came home and my mom said, "If one of my boys was going to get hurt, I knew it was going to be you." But, you can't let life get you down. You have to keep trying. I was sent home early from my mission, and did that stop me? Nope. After 9 months, I'm a missionary again. :D Why would I do something so hard, twice? Because I have seen people come unto Christ. I have seen people gain a hope in life. I have seen people believe they are a child of a loving God. I have seen people change and gain faith in something that no one can take away from them.I love the Gospel of Jesus Chirst. Why would I not go out there and share it with everyone?

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? Because it gives me hope. It gives me reason to keep on going through this life. As y'all know, life isn't exactly easy. Our friends and family pass away, and this was a thought that haunted me when I was younger. Thinking I would never be with my family again would keep me up at night in tears. I'm Mormon because I know I can be with my family forever. That even after this life I will have my brothers with me, that I will always be with my family. Life often pins ya down and you don't feel like you can possibly make it. And you question, why? I am Mormon because I know there was a man who took upon my pains and my sufferings. There was a man much greater than me that had to do the impossible, His name was Jesus Christ. And He took upon the pains and sins of the world so that we can get through this life. And if His sacrafice wasn't easy for him, why should it be easy for us? I know that Jesus lives by the power of the Holy Ghost. I have come to this knowledge by the power of the Bible and the Book of Mormon. And if the Book of Mormon is ture, then those Mormons have it right.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be like Jesus. I'm following in his ways. If people are lost, I try to lead them, guide them, I might even walk besides them to help them find the way. For, I have been born, as Nephi of old. To a goodly mother, who loves the lord. I have been taught, and I understand that I must do as the Lord commands. I am a soldier in the army of heleman, I have been taught in my youth. And I am so the Lords missionary to bring the world His truth.

In whom should we have faith?

Paul W Goodrich
We should have faith in God the Father and his son, Jesus Christ. Simple as that. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Paul W Goodrich
James 1:5 "If any of you lack wisdom (Do you? You're wondering if the Mormons have it right aren't ya?) let him ask of God, (Pray and as God if Mormons have it right or if they are a bunch of crazy people) that giveth to all men liberally, (God answers the prayers of his children who are truly asking Him) and upbraideth not; (God tells it like it is) and it shall be given him. (He'll give you the answer, not necessarily the answer you want, but the answer you need.) Show more Show less
