Hi I'm Parker Wells

I grew up in Southern California. I love to spend time outdoors, surfing, fly fishing and golfing.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Southern California. I was raised in a family of 6 kids. I have 2 brothers and 3 sisters. In our house, there was always something going on. I learned at a very young age that family comes first. I grew up playing sports, football, baseball, soccer, etc. I had a father who taught me may important lessons on the playing field as a coach and mentor. I also grew up camping and the enjoying the outdoors. Today, I enjoy many of the things I was introduced to at a young age. I love surfing, golfing, camping, and fly fishing. My wife and I love spending time at the beach, surfing, camping, etc. We have been blessed with 2 beautiful daughters. I want them to have the same type of experiences that I was able to have as a child. I want to help them to appreciate the beautiful things our world has to offer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a father of 2 beautiful daughters who keep my wife and I busy. I have been blessed to be raised in a loving home where I learned the principles of hard work and faith. Those principles have helped me as I have started my own family. I have found that the most rewarding events in life have occurred with my family nearby. My wife and I were raised in Southern California and we both met while we were in college. We finished college and moved back to the area. We love being near our families. It is such a blessing to have continued guidance and support from our parents. We hope to raise our children in the same loving home environment we were raised in. I believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ helped our parents to teach us true principles to prepare us for when we would have children some day. I want to raise my children in a gospel centered home where we talk and teach about Christ. The gospel is centered on faith in Christ, faith that he is our Savior. This faith is what supports me when we face the challenges of life. This is the faith I want my daughters to have. I pray that our children will grow to understand the importance of Christ in their lives so they too may raise a strong Christ centered family.

How I live my faith

Currently I am an active member of the church. I assist with the missionary efforts in our area. It is amazing to see the dedication of the missionaries! They are wonderful young men and women to work with. We have had the privilege of working with a few investigators who were able to be baptized recently. I could literally see a change in the life of this family as they investigated the church, came to church and came to believe in the teaching of the Church of Christ. I have been blessed to work with the missionary program and am excited to share my beliefs with others.
