Hi I'm Parry
I have played in multiple bands since 6th grade (concert, jazz, and marching, as well as various ensembles). my primary instrument is percussion, my secondary trombone. In marching band I specialize in the various tenor drums. I consider myself an intellegent person; I like to learn and, hopefully, teach, but mostly learn. I have a natural aptitude for math and science, but I am terrible with grammer, spelling, and other related topics. I can hold my own in most sports; I won't be the best or the worst but I can play.
Why I am a Mormon
I was born into the "mormon" faith, so I have been one all my life. Early on when i was a child i went to church and did the things that I was taught because my parents told me to. Since then I have developed, over time, a firm and unbreakable testimony that this is the truth. With this gospel I have direction in my life. I know what to do and how to do it. I know that any trial or afliction that I have to go through is temparary and that with the help of Jesus Christ, my redeemer and savior, i can get through, defeat, and be victorious over anything. I am not only content with my life; I am happy. I rejoice. My life is the life that my Lord, Jesus Christ, wants for me.
