Hi I'm Paul Owens

I grew up in Idaho. I love movies and board games. my sport is wrestling. I'm serving in the Washington north. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Idaho. I moved here when I was really young. I like to work with computers and have studied graphic design. In high school I was active in wrestling. It is a great sport to develop yourself physically and mentally. I am very interested in politics. I am proud to be an American. It is great to be a mission in D.C and Maryland.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. My mother is a convert and I see the life of others who do not have the gospel in their lives. I am grateful to have the gospel in my live. I love how the gospel allows us to change and improve. Jesus Christ forgives us and allows up to better ourselves. I know that Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the same church that Christ organized. I know we have a living prophet on the earth today. I know that Christ leads and guides my life today.

How I live my faith

As proud as I am to be an American, I am more pleased to say I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It has effected the whole way I look at the world. I look at others and see other children of God. I think " How can I serve them?" , "How can I bless others?" One of my favorite memories is after a large snow storm, I organized the a group of boys from my ward to shovel the walks of all the elderly people in our neighborhood. People were shocked when we didn't want money and it felt so good. I know that we need to be like Jesus Christ. I try to live my faith everyday.
