Hi I'm Perry Rockwood

I play high school basketball, football, and track. I like to dance and beat box and eat McChickens, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really like high school where i have the opportunity to serve as vice president which i love. I am a 3 varsity sport athlete playing basketball, football and track. I am a very active person who falls asleep any time I see or think of a movie. I love the Lakers, BYU, and Duke. I love to sing but not in front of people. I'm very outgoing and am always looking for a good time with friends or family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church all my life. I was baptized when i was 8 years old and it has been a hard and rewarding journey ever since then. The Church of Jesus Christ has been a huge role in my life. Everything good that has come into my life is because of the church. Without the faith that I have gained in my life through study, prayer, Sunday school and seminary I wouldn't be the person that I am today. Everybody at my school knows that I am a Mormon. Sometimes that can be hard and put a lot of pressure on me but gives me a unique and wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with all my friends and be an example of a Latter-day Saint. I have a strong testimony of this gospel and I love it with all my heart. I know that Jesus Christ paid for our sins so that we would be able to ask his forgiveness of the sins that we commit every single day. I love Christ fully and try to do all that I can to show Him that love. This church means everything to me and i don't know where I would be without it. It has brought me so much happiness and joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending seminary during school. This is where every single day during 6th period I get to go and walk over to the church along with the 15 other students in my class and we learn about the teachings of Jesus. I also attend youth group every Wednesday night were I am able to learn life skills, have fun and serve others. One of my favorite responsibilities as a member of the church is to bless and pass the Holy Sacrament to those who attend our Sunday worship services.
