Hi I'm Joshua Parr

I'm a Yorkshire man who is a Mormon and love it!!!

About Me

My passion is cooking and eating. I have been cooking since I was a small boy and always loved been in the kitchen. So I decide to follow my dream of becoming a chef and having my own restaurant and went to college to study hospitality and catering for 2 years. I then received an amazing opportunity to move from Leeds England to go to Edinburgh in Scotland. Where I got a job as a chef at one of the best restaurants in the UK, Castle Terrace. I loved and really enjoyed working at Castle Terrace and learned loads of skills and lessons over my time working there, which will help me throughout my life as I continue to progress. I decide to put on hold my dream and started to prepare myself to serve a mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint. In doing so I finished work and put all my focus into it. I was assigned to serve my mission in Utah Provo, USA mission. Where I currently am, I am really enjoying my mission and love helping the people in the Provo area.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon. Because if I wasn't what would I be! I found out that Heavenly Father loves me and care for me. I know this because when I moved to Edinburgh I went through a really hard time, not knowing if this church which I have been going to all my life. I didn't have much of a belief in what the church teaches and after a few months of hard trail that I was going through. I decide to turn to Heavenly Father and asked him to help. He answered my pray, it was straight away but from that point my life turn around. Everything just started to improve and I know It was by the hand of heavenly Father that brought happiness and joy in to my life. Through one action of humility, where I know I couldn't do it alone, I ask for His help and He was there. Heavenly Father LOVES His children and is there to help them when ever they need it. Jesus Christ died so we could be forgive of our mistake and to help us to return to the path of ever ending happiness. I know that Jesus Christ lives again. I know that we have a prophet today that is called of God to lead and direct Him church. I prayed for help and he sent it. From this I know that the belief of the church are true. I know that there is a plan for everyone in their life. That he doesn't give up on anyone and there is always a way back through Jesus Christ and the atonement. I could speak for a long time about why I am a Mormon. The fact is that I am and I love it!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the example that my parent have set for me. I also know that God still speak to his Children on earth, and He still calls prophets to help us and lead us to do what we need to do so we are able to return with Heavenly Father once again. I follow the words that the prophet tells and his guidance. I read the Book of Mormon daily to help me to feel the holy ghost. I also pray to Heavenly father to thank him for the blessing He has given me and to ask for help. I know as we ask Him, He will answer our pray because He loves every one of His children.
