Hi I'm Parker

I live in Oregon and like to play sports. I also have a great family and fantastic friends

About Me

I am a college student and sometimes it is tough to juggle all the things that go on with it. classes, studying, work and then finding a way to pay for it all is tough. I enjoy every minute of it though because I like the challenge and I like to learn. I know that in the long run it will help me and my future family. I like to play sports and play pick up games with my buddies! anything that is a new challenge is fun for me. I like to knit and bake. most people laugh at me when I tell them that I can do those things and enjoy them!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that already believed in this gospel and I was raised in it. I have other siblings that also were born into it and were taught it when they were little and have chosen not to practice it anymore, so I have seen a little bit of both sides. I have "tested" what this religion has taught and I feel that I am my happiest when I follow what it teaches. I have been a missionary and I have seen a lot of what happens with a lot of different types of religions and I feel that this one is the true gospel. meaning that it all the doctrines and teachings that Jesus Christ would teach if he were here on the earth teaching it it himself. I am a Mormon because I have experimented and tried it out to see if it really was God's church on the earth, and I got an answer! it is His church!

How I live my faith

I try my hardest to live the gospel as close as I can. Of course I am not perfect and sin. but repenting and trying to become better everyday makes me stronger. I have a calling in my ward were I am in charge of activities on Monday nights. I plan with my co-chair person and we make plans for activities and treats for afterwards. where I live there is a retirement home that a group of us from our faith go and sing and visit with the people who live there once a week. it feels great to go talk with them! when I am out with friends I always try and live the standards that I have been taught and try and make others feel better than when I got there! I like to make others feel happier than they were before.
