Hi I'm Parker DeYoung

I love my family and friends, and like doing anything and everything with them and having a good time! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being active and playing sports, baseball and skiing are my favorite ones but ill do just about anything. I love my family and friends, and doing anything and everything with them! I am currently loving life serving as a missionary, in the Lubbock, Texas mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I found it to be the true restored church of Jesus Christ on the earth today! I love to study the scriptures and the word of God, and learn anything and everything I possibly can. And what better helps that, than to have a living prophet and twelve apostles alive on the earth today. I am also very grateful to have the companionship of Holy Ghost in my life to testify to me of all the truths of the gospel. I've grown a strong love for my savior and all he has done for me through study and lots of prayer. I am glad I have the chance to continually study the words of the prophets, and to have prayer to continually add on to my testimony of this amazing church. I am greatful for this restored gospel, and I know with a surety that it is absolutely true!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying as hard as i can to do the will of the Lord. When we truly understand his will, our lives change to become more Christ-like. This is something that i will have to work on for the rest of my life, but when we i do the will of our Heavenly Father, my livfe, and the lives of those around me are blessed. I feel so much better about myself when i follow Jesus Christ. He doesn’t give us a commandment that is not for our benefit, and happiness. Submitting to the Lords will is one of the hardest but most rewarding things in my life!
