Hi I'm Parker Jones

I am a Husband, I am a Father, I am a Cyclist, I am a Mormon

About Me

I love spending time with my 3 children and wonderful wife. I find joy in the simple things, playing with my kids, riding my mountain bike, surrounding myself with good friends and people that make me laugh. I try not to take myself too serious. If I did I would be miserable because I make way too many mistakes. When I have the time, I strive to be outdoors, although I wouldnt consider myself a true mountaineer by any stretch of the imgagination. I love to snowboard in the freshly fallen snow. My kids and I call it PAODA! PAODA always brings a rush to my spirit and a smile to my face. I love to mix stuff up in the blender. If I can drink it rather than eat it I will. I spend way to much time in ariports and hotels traveling for work. I know how to get through a security line in my sleep but no matter how many times I do it, taking of my shoes always drives me in sain. I am a loyal friend, father, husband, coworker, son, and brother.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith keeps me sain and grounded. By nature, for better or for worse, I am somewhat cynical. I have doubts. However, when the Spirit of the Lord speaks to my soul, my doubts and cynicism vanish. I am a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ has made me who I am. I am far from perfect, but I always strive to be a better person. The Gospel leaves me principally grounded, giving me a better chance to be happy in this life. I love Mormons with all of our imperfections. I appreciate that each of us are just striving to be our best, blemishes and all! My Savior has given me a chance to repent, and I will continue to to do so.

How I live my faith

I have been given many chances to serve others within the church and community. Like many, I can become self centered focusing too much on my problems and challenges. The beauty of service is it forces me to look beyond my situation and focus on others. I learn so much from others. Thus, I am grateful to for opportunites to work and serve with others.
