Hi I'm Perry

Born by the beach and raised with love and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Perry, my close friends/family call me "Bear" or "Peter"(I couldn't tell you why.) I was born and raised in LA with a love of music, cars, and learning. My family is my biggest strength, simply because we share Christ in our lives. I am currently on a mission for my church serving in Cleveland, OH and I absolutely love it! The knowledge of our Lord is the best blessing I've had in my life and I'm happy to share it with others. After these two years are up I plan on going back to school in Southern California for dentistry and to be around my loved ones. I know that there is nothing in this life that can't be done or overcome with faith in Christ and through prayer to our Father in Heaven.

Why I am a Mormon

My family has raised me in this gospel from the beginning of my days. I have had a knowledge of Christ and His Atoning sacrifice for us from a very young age, although my personal belief in these concepts were not necessarily lived in my life. I have been through ups and downs as any one else has, and not until a few years ago actually came to a knowledge and testimony of the cleansing powers that Christ plays in the lives of those who accept Him. The most important part of the beliefs I have in the teachings of the church is that of eternal families. My parents and siblings have been my rock and example throughout my early years and still continue to be till now, and I am so overwhelmingly happy that I can be with them forever. My love for my family is beyond what I thought i possessed, until I started my service to the Lord. I was born into a family that taught me how to love our Lord, and I doing my best to teach this to my brothers and sisters in Ohio.

How I live my faith

I live my faith for the future while learning from the past. I am constantly trying to realize the glory of my Father in Heaven and share that with others. My personal goals are those of self-improvement and self-mastery, to put off the natural man and become a son of God. Being a missionary for my church has been the best time of my life and I am excited to continue to serve Him. There is a happiness in my life that has come from the knowledge and belief in God and Christ, my only purpose right now is to help others find that happiness for themselves.
