Hi I'm Paul Tolman

I grew up in Portland, Oregon. I love sports and family fun and game nights with friends.

About Me

I am a dad of two kids, one boy and one girl. I am married to a wonderful woman. We enjoy hanging out with the family, playing games and watching movies. I have a BS in Computer Science and am pursuing a masters degree in IT Management. I love computers. I have built my own computers many times and love doing that.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because of the continual feelings I get every time I attend church. The spirit touches my heart and testifies to me that I am in the right place. I love my Savior and all that he has done for me. I love my Heavenly Father and the blessings he pours out to me and my family. I love the feelings I get from reading the scriptures. I love being able to share those feelings and thoughts with my family and friends. Being a Mormon gives me a sense of peace I can only find through the knowledge that I am following the example the Jesus Christ set for me. I know I am a child of God and he sent me here to learn and be tested. I know that through Jesus Christ I will be able to return to live with my family and my Father in Heaven again.

How I live my faith

I love going to Church and the feelings and joy that I get from the spirit that is felt there. I get the opportunity to work with the Men's group in our church and I enjoy listening to their experiences and having my faith and testimony grow from their experiences. The Church has been a great place to meet new friends and gives me and my family a good solid foundation to get through life.
