Paul was born and raised in the beautiful rural area of Teton Valley by parents who were always there for him to teach him to love God, family, and nature. He was taught to believe in the church that his family belonged to, that it was the way back home to God and that it was there to support the family and to get the family unit back to God. His nearest neighbors were the deer, elk and moose since his home bordered the Targhee National Forest. After thirty years of marriage and eleven children, the family he loved was devastated when his church leaders said that they sort of hated him, and so it was OK if his wife hated him. This is a story of his struggle with the desire to get even with his church leaders, and his struggle with the divorce of his family, his struggle with the changes in the doctrine of his church, and the lessons learned in overcoming the struggles, and the joy found in life after life's battles are won within his own heart.
