Hi I'm Parker

I think life is meant to be enjoyed. I love the snow. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the youngest of 4 kids. I have the best mom in the world. I love my family so much! I believe that life is a lot about balance- physically, mentally, and spiritually. Currently, I'm serving as a missionary in Arkansas. Before coming out here, I did a semester of college. I still have no idea what I’m going to be when I grow up. I like to do what makes me happy. Something that brings me a lot of joy is getting outside to experience nature. I love to bike and swim, and I enjoy sports of all kinds- from skiing to golf, from baseball to ping pong. 

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because to me it makes perfect sense. God has always wanted us to be happy and to understand our purpose here on Earth. That's why he's called a Prophet again. He loves us, he wants us to be happy. I have always been a member of this church, but a couple of years ago, I took the opportunity to find out for myself if all the things I had learned growing up were true. After reading and praying about the Book of Mormon, I received a witness from the Spirit that it was real. I've received witness's like that one many times since. It reassures me that the decision I made then is still correct now. The Gospel helps me to answer questions of the Soul.  

How I live my faith

Because I received an answer to my prayers and I felt that the Church of Jesus Christ had been restored to the earth, I felt the need and responsibility to share that testimony with others. We all have some special experience. We all have unique talents and abilities. Those have been given to us by a loving Heavenly Father, not for self-satisfaction, but for helping others. I decided to serve a mission and was called to the Arkansas Little Rock Mission. It has been a wonderful experience and has helped me to become more like Jesus Christ. I know that we can show our appreciation and love for God, by sharing what we know to be true. He rejoices when we keep the commandments and follow the counsel He has given us.
