Hi I'm Parker

I live in Bakersfield, CA, but I'll probably be in Mexico City on a mission by the time you read this. Cos I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm just a simple guy. I'm certain to become more complicated by 2015. But for now, I'm into music; I play the guitar and ukulele, ...and the piano sort of, barely... I also like other creative things from drawing cartoons, to writing songs and poems.

Why I am a Mormon

I choose to be a member of this church, not just because I was born into it, but that helped, I didn't need to look far at all...! But mostly because I learned that this church has the fullness of the gospel that Jesus Christ established. The Truth can be found here, and in the scriptures the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

How I live my faith

As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints, I've visited other members (of my age group) whether they are active or not, with a companion of same purpose as mine, to ...visit... and/or offer help or assistance in whatever they may need, including cronic activness in the Church.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Jesus Christ said that one thing we must do to enter God's kingdom after life, is to be baptized in His name with the proper authority. That authority, the priesthood, is held and practised (only) here in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter - Day Saints. Being baptized by someone with the priesthood is important because it is recognised by God, for it has been used by His authority. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No we're not required, but we are... encouraged. Young men "seem" to be more encouraged than young women. I beleive serving a mission is great to give into the encouragements of. Though I've not yet served one, I know it's a great growing-up experiance, and it spreads the gospel throughout the world to Everybody! Show more Show less
