Hi I'm Dallin Parker

I love being active. I love my family and friends. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. I am attending the University of Utah as a freshman this year and am excited to learn a lot and be stretched. I love the outdoors, there is nothing like camping, hiking, biking, or exploring. I love my family even though they live all over the world. I am quiet the nerd when it comes to electronics, and always have been. Hanging out with my friends is something I always look forward to. I love to travel and being challenged.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a Mormon because I have come to know that it is true. For the longest time I went through the motions of "being a Mormon" and didn't feel satisfaction. I didn't understand the magnitude of the restored gospel. Luckily I had wonderful people around me who didn't let me stray too far. I gained a firm testimony that God knows us individually, and by name when I felt his love at my lowest point. I changed some things around and decided to slowly be a little better. Through diligent study of the Book of Mormon and the Bible accompanied with prayer I came to know its truth and divinity. I love my religion because it isn't just a "religion" that I claim, its a way of life that my Savior has asked me to live.

How I live my faith

I strive to put my faith in my Savior Jesus Christ in all situations. It takes faith to step into the dark when you don't know if it will be illuminated the way you want it to be. I attend church, study my scriptures, and use prayer to strengthen me in my weaknesses. I love to serve other people and look for unplanned opportunities to help someone.
