Hi I'm Jimmy Parker

Lived in Seattle and Salt Lake City. Father to three and Creative Director and CEO of a theatre company. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Father of 3. Creative, while trying to keep balance with body, mind, emotion and spirit in relationships and God. Running a non-profit is a test of will power, but seriously rewarding. I can't help but imagine and work out creative challenges in my head while doing other activities, it's just a part of who I am. Here are a few things I do: All the graphic design, web design, set design, light design, sound engineer, prop construction, costume design, human resources, hiring and firing, training, customer service, building maintenance and improvements, interior design, grant writing and much, much more. I don't have any hobbies, except an occasional golf game and a trip to the ski resort.

Why I am a Mormon

Everyone has weaknesses in life. I wish that I could be more diplomatic with people or control my temper. I believe that if God exists that he would want to communicate with us. I believe he does this through answers to my prayers and through a prophet. The Mormon faith teaches continuing revelation and nurturing a personal relationship with God and Jesus Christ through the affirmation of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

Working on habits of scripture study and prayer. I was taught a lesson of faith by a good friend that if you put your family first despite challenges or work, only good things can come. I skipped a lot of classes as a teen and now as an adult I've taught almost all those classes. I really try to do my best, but feel very inadequate at times. One thing that helps me is to know that this life is not meant to live perfectly, but to work towards becoming a better person with the help of my faith in Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Jimmy Parker
A super funky question. The answer is no. Why did the church so this? I don't know. Does it shake my testimony? No, because throughout the history of the world many traditions are no longer in practice. Show more Show less
