Hi I'm Parker Brevard

I was born and raised Texan. I'm all about sports. I'm serving the Lord in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a southern gentleman. I was raised in East Texas. I played football in high school. I moved to Utah when i was 18. I went to a year of college and now i am living the dream by serving as a missionary in the Great Plains! I love the Gospel, my family, my friends, and sports. I love doing things outside such as hiking, boating, and just staying active.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon by great parents. They set a wonderful example of how to live righteously and taught me how to obtain happiness in my life. When i was 15 my father was killed in a car accident. I was devastated. I distanced myself from Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I made myself miserable. I was in a downward spiral of depression and anxiety. I knew in my heart if i wanted to be happy that i would need to humble myself and ask Heavenly Father for help. As soon as i did that my life turned around literally overnight. My pains and anguishes were replaced with peace and comfort. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and all of His Children, and that families are to be forever.

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by serving as a missionary. I have the joy of waking up each day and study the scriptures for a couple of hours each day, and then get the wonderful opportunity to speak with total strangers about the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is something that can be difficult and tiring but so rewarding. I have the chance to help individuals and families receive the great joy and peace, that comes from knowing that Heavenly Father still guides and directs His children through prophets and that there is one true church on the earth today.
