Hi I'm Patrick Poppell

I grew up in Florida. I like to serve others and try to help as much as I can for others. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a pretty active guy. I played football and ran track in high school. I love to go out doors. I like to climb trees, mountains, and a combination of both. I'm a pretty well rounded guy with what activities I do. I like to socialize so most activities I will participate with others. Definitely if its helping them have a good day.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know this gospel is true! I have been living in the church for my whole life and with the mistakes I have done and repented. I know for a fact that this gospel is the true and everlasting gospel. I have seen the blessings that I feel and receive from the way I have lived. I know that following the commandments and living them will bless each one of us to our specific needs. The Lord Loves US.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I constantly do the basic principles we need to do to keep our foundation strong in this faith. I read/study the scriptures, pray to our Heavenly Father, and go to church every Sunday. Most importantly I follow the commandments and try my best to do good.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Patrick Poppell
I see from my loving parents, the way they teach and lead by example that the family is central to God's plan for all of His children. I can not see anyway how I could have made it through this world if I hadn't had The Lord's own love in my household as it was in my youth (from my parents). Show more Show less
