Hi I'm Paul

I'm a Missionary, a Mentor, a Musician, I do a little of everything and a Mormon. :)

About Me

I'm just a guy from Utah. I like to learn and I like to teach. I really want to accomplish something great. I have goals just like anyone else. There's no limit except for the limit you give yourself. I want to become someone who my Savior would be proud of. I am a Instructor and Mentor. I was assigned to the West Virginia Charleston Mission part of the vineyard to do my part in the mission of the Lord. I love music, almost as much as I love to make it. I love to do all sorts of outdoor activities, and having fun. I'm also a technology enthusiast. I enjoy progress. I like to see things work, and to understand. So I get into a little of everything. We only stop learning when we stop trying. If we apply ourselves, and keep our eyes open we'll see things that we would never have imagined. I believe that we have to live for something. I believe that nothing is impossible with Faith in Jesus Christ. In all things there are opportunities to serve people. I'm grateful for the part that I get to play. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I started out life as a mormon. I went to church, went to some of the activities, participated in many things. But for a long time, my heart wasn't in it. I didn't know what it really was. Through a long process and my battle with sin, trial, and life, I eventually decided that I had to know. I thought I was doing was God wanted me to do. He then asked me to be more sincere and do things His way. He taught me the way to be, the way to pray, and He teaches me everyday I'm humble enough to listen. I sought my Heavenly Father to know what He would have me do. He required that I do my part to find truth, and seek His will. So I did. The Lord knows how to make us more than we are. My personal journey is still ongoing. I do my part to seek Him, and He takes me where is best for me. I found this path after I did my part. I had to choose. My parents had desires, but they didn't make me. I was lazy, and now I see more reason for life. I look forward to each day and for what can come. I'm grateful to my Father and my Savior. My parents have made a huge difference. They have supported me and were a cautious voice of warning. There are messages waiting for us all around us, but often we are too blind, or distracted to see what really matters. I know that my Redeemer lives. There is a plan, and I know it. I'm learning what my part in it is. I'm a Mormon, because I choose to follow Jesus Christ. I choose to become something that will allow my family to experience ultimate joy. I love my Savior. Prayer works, and He led me here. I'm a Mormon because of the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has taught me how to discover who I really am. I now know who I am. I know these things from my own experience and my personal relationship with my Father in Heaven. This relationship and knowledge is available to all those who desire it. You just have to know where to look. I found it, and I wouldn't trade the things I've been given for anything. :)

How I live my faith

There are so many choices we have each and everyday. I thank the Lord for allowing me to have an opportunity to choose. Living as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is truly a lifestyle. What I've learned affects how I make decisions every single day. I have goals, and things I want to accomplish. The Gospel helps me get there. I know that by learning and teaching, I can grow and progress. I live by following Jesus Christ. I try to do things as He would do them. Although I'm not perfect, His grace and love help my get back up on my feet, dust off, and get right back on. Even if doing what I feel is right is against the stereotype. The only person we truly have to impress is God. And if you can do that, then you can do anything He wants you to. But that's a process in and of itself. That's why there's repentance. It takes all of us to accomplish the work of the Lord. Because His work helps us become something. So if we do nothing, then nothing happens, we have to do something before something happens. He will help us, He helped me get out a hole, and now I feel confident in taking steps in faith. :) Everyday we have a new opportunity to learn, to grow, to become, to serve, and to live. I live my faith, by living in a manner that pleases my Heavenly Father. Not being perfect, I have to make adjustments and try even harder to be better. But because of the Grace of God, I can have new day each day to be the best Son I can be. If we trust Him, he'll deliver us to a higher place. A place where we can never get on our own.
