Hi I'm Paul

I'm a music nerd, born and raised in Centerville, Utah. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a music nerd. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Sound Recording Technology, which hopefully will lead to a career in audio engineering. I'm passionate about music--listening, playing, performing, making, editing, et cetera. I get a lot of peace and calm from just putting on some headphones, picking up an instrument, or just lying down and letting sound wash over me. I also like to try and stay up on the latest technology, even though I usually can't afford it. I've played piano from when I was about 6 years old, and when I was 11, decided to switch to cello. Since then, I've tried to pick up on some guitar, banjo, ukulele, as well as trying to return to the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was born and raised with the Church, I have still been converted to it. I have found for myself that this is God's church on earth. This Gospel has changed my life and made me a better person all around. I owe so much to it. This church is not like any other church that I've seen. Not only does it do a whole lot of good worldwide, but it also allows its members to find things out for themselves, something that I love. It will change your life if you let it. It has for me, and continues to do so as I learn more and more of Jesus Christ, and particularly about my personal relationship with Him.

How I live my faith

Right now, I'm a full-time missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Atlantic Canada and loving it. As missionaries, we try everyday to help others develop faith in Jesus Christ and make changes in their lives to return to Him. Being a Mormon is much more than just going to church once a week: it is being a witness of Jesus Christ at all times in everyday life, even if you're not a missionary. I try to be the best person I can be and try to understand who God wants me to become. I look for things to improve on and try to accept advice from others. It is not always easy, but the joy, love, peace, and direction that comes from it definitely makes it worth it.
