Hi I'm Paul J. Staples

I am a Mormon and its Wonderful!

About Me

I just graduated high school and am now serving as a missionary. I love puzzles. I love to read, especially the Scriptures. I love spending time with my family and having a blast with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but that is not why I choose to be a Mormon. Being a Mormon is just amazing. Throughout middle school and high school I really developed my own testimony of its truthfulness. I am a Mormon because I feel close to Christ. The Church has made me a good man, helped me live good standards which have led to a lot of happiness. I have the promise that I can be with my family forever. Being a Mormon has given me the strength and happiness I can't find anywhere else.

How I live my faith

I am serving the Lord as a missionary to the people of the Philippines. I have left my home and family for two years to go preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who want it. I read the scriptures all the time and visit the Temple every week! I love it there! I try my best to be a good friend to those I know and to strangers. I love to make people smile!

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Paul J. Staples
Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. He is the literal Son of God. He lived on earth, suffered for our transgressions and also our pains and sufferings. He rose from the dead so that we could too. He provided us the ability to repent, change our hearts, and come back to God. He died for us, and now He lives for us. Show more Show less
