Hi I'm Padraic

I was born and raised in Georgia. I am working on getting a college degree in Biology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending college to obtain a bachelor's degree in Biology. I enjoy war-type board games, and enjoy reading nonfiction books.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. However, I have continued to follow the gospel because of the blessings I have seen in my life. During high school and college, I saw many of my dearest friends go down paths that they should not have, and many of these friends are now in prison or have been injured by their actions. I have not had to make such decisions. I have been taught what is wrong, and will not do it. In this way, being a member helps me stay safe in the world. I know that Heavenly Father loves his children. As such, he sent his son, Jesus Christ, to the Earth to live a perfect life and pay the price for our sins. If we will accept Christ's atonement and live as he has said, we can return to live in Heavenly Father's presence again. We can know how to live by following the examples of modern-day prophets, and by following the promptings of the Holy Ghost. This gives me comfort in life, because the world is tough, and a message as sweet as this cannot be ignored.

How I live my faith

I have been the youth leader of the 12-14 year old boys, and the 14-16 year old boys. I have been a home teacher since I was 14, where I go with my companion to visit members in their homes, just to make sure they do not need anything and are staying strong.
