Hi I'm Mandy Parsons

I am a missionary in the MJM, I love the Book of Mormon and I am a Mormon

About Me

I have lived in Utah my entire life except for those few months there at the beginning when I was born in Washington. I have one brother, a sister in-law, two parents, two sisters and a soon to be niece or nephew. I went to high school in a small town. I don't have a favorite color. I am very into mint and peach colors these days though. I am currently serving a mission in the Mississippi Jackson Mission and loving every minute of it. I love reading and just some good chill time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this church is true. I have read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it is true. I have seen the happiness that comes from living the gospel and the things it teaches. I am so grateful that I have that knowledge and joy that comes with it.

How I live my faith

I try to live by the example of our savior Jesus Christ. I am sharing the good news with those of the south and hopefully showing them how much the Lord loves them! I try to be a example to others and just love everyone because we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father. I know that sometimes I fall short but I think that is a huge part of living our faith is not to stay down. We get to use the atonement of Christ and become better!

Who are the Mormons?

Mandy Parsons
Mormon is a nickname that was given to our church a few hundred years ago because of a book of scripture we have by the name of Book of Mormon. The name of our church is actually The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are a Christian church. We believe in modern day revelation and that there is still a prophet on the earth today. Show more Show less

Why is self-reliance important to Mormons? Why do Mormons talk about emergency preparedness?

Mandy Parsons
It is very important to be prepared. There is a lot of war and natural disasters. If you are prepared you will be able to take care of your family or those around you. Show more Show less
