Hi I'm Paul

I live in Runcorn, I support Everton and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a dad of five I enjoy reading watching football and going to the gym. I also enjoy doing family history.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a member of the church for about 20 years; but it wasn't until recent years that I found my own faith and realised that it is actually true. By reading the Book of Mormon and asking God about it through prayer, I came to know that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. I now know that the work the church is doing now, and the teachings are true and from God. As I go to the temple, I feel the love of God within me. I know that the work in the temple is very important. Living the Word of Wisdom has given me better health and peace of mind. I know that I have a lot of growing to do, it is only within the church that I am able to do it, with God's help I know I'm able to do it. If the missionaries stop you to talk... listen to them!

How I live my faith

I live my faith in the service I give to my fellow ward members. I spend time visiting people who I can help if they are in some sort of need. I also attend church every week to worship God with others of my faith. I love to help missionaries of our church teach those who are interested in finding out more. We read the scriptures together and I'm able to help answer any questions they may have. One other thing I love to do as an expression of my faith is to research my own family history which I do to help them accept Jesus Christ beyond this life. I am the first in my family to join the church so I have a lot of work to do.

Why do Mormons perform proxy baptisms in their temples?

Paul
Baptism is essential for entry to the Kingdom of God, so performing baptisms for the dead gives them the opportunity for eternal life. It doesn't make you a Mormon, but gives you an option. It's like being given a meal, it's still up to the individual if they want to partake Show more Show less
