Hi I'm Paul

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah and lived in Denver, Colorado for several years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of 5 children; and a grandfather of five. I am a financial adviser and CPA. I love being with my family and enjoy golfing, coin collecting and reading. I enjoy traveling, especially to foreign countries. I love history and learning about the past. I am a Stake President in the Mormon church.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is the restored church that Jesus Christ established when he was on the earth. This church has the power and authority of God to perform saving ordinances. We have a prophet on the earth today (like Moses, Abraham, Noah, etc. of old) who receives inspiration from Heavenly Father to instruct us on how to please God and to live happy. We have multiple books of scripture that give us hope, inspiration and direction - these include the Bible and The Book of Mormon. Following the counsel of the prophet and the scriptures blesses my life. I receive great blessings when I follow Heavenly Father's commandments, and I am happy. I know my Heavenly Father knows me, He loves me and He has a plan for me.

How I live my faith

I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I try my best to live as Jesus did and to obey the commandments. I serve others in different ways; I try to be kind and considerate of all those I meet. I love the opportunity to share my testimony of the church; I know this is Heavenly Father's church and kingdom on the earth.

Who was Joseph Smith?

I testify that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. God called him to restore the church of Jesus Christ to the earth, this church is called The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He is a prophet as was Moses, Abraham, Adam and others. He translated the Book of Mormon; I testify that this book contains Jesus Christ's doctrine and gospel. This book gives me great information, inspiration and comfort. I am grateful to know that Heavenly Father communicates to His children today through living prophets, as He has always done.
