Hi I'm Paul

I live and breath music. I'm a serious foodie. I'm a scholar, athlete and amateur scientist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outdoors--backpacking, canoeing, jogging--you name it, I'll do it! As such, I'm an active guy who exercises a lot. One of my favorite past-times is music, and I'm the proud owner of a clarinet, a ukulele and an I-Pod. I've been a Boy Scout since I was 11, and I recently became an Eagle Scout. I also have a passion for learning, so school is one of my favorite places (believe it or not)! English, French, mathematics, and the physical sciences are some of my favorite subjects. To continue my education, I will go to Brigham Young University-Idaho in 2018.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both Mormon, so I was raised in the Mormon way and followed their example from a very young age. Now, I continue to be a Mormon because I love my brother Jesus Christ and Father in Heaven. They have been my best friends through pain, weakness, sin, and insecurity. This church gives my life so much meaning--plus, its also my way of thanking Them. "If ye love me, keep my commandments" (John 14:15).

How I live my faith

Above all, I strive to love everyone and serve them--whether that means tutoring another student or giving someone a kind word. Now, I going to serve a mission in the Philippines, just north of Quezon City. I want to help everyone follow Christ and keep His commandments, just like I do.

How can we stop the spread and influence of pornography?

Paul
In the past, a person had to really search for pornography, because it wasn't common. Today, it comes to you, and that's downright scary! Internet filters help, but the best thing we can do is TO SPEAK UP. Talk to your parents, talk to your spouse, talk to your kids, talk to your elected officials, talk to everybody about it! Spread the word about its evils, and also be a support system for your loved ones. Pornography may be an awkward topic to discuss. I think so myself. But we can't beat around the bush and assume it's not that big of a deal; it IS a big deal! If we don't speak up, it can infiltrate and ruin our society, our families--maybe even our own minds.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Paul
I have seen the hand of God countless times in science. Whether I am learning solubility rules of compounds in chemistry, or comparing atomic orbits and planetary orbits in physics, I’m amazed at the rigid order of the universe. How could all this structure come from nothing? Then I remember that God is a god of order and structure, and again I remember that God is real. Show more Show less
