Hi I'm Parker

Hello I love to play sports and hang with friends. I grew up in Utah. I love to go camping. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well I love playing sports even though i am not the best at them. Mostly i like to play football, basketball, or baseball but i will pretty much play anything. I really love the outdoors and camping it's just so relaxing and just fun all around. I just graduated in 2012 and right now I am on my mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. But when i get back I am planning on going to college probably at the University of Utah even though i am a huge BYU (Brigham Young University) fan. I am going to the U of U because they have a good medical program. But I just love being around people and having fun.

Why I am a Mormon

For me it was no question and some people may say that it was because I was raised in the church. But its not, it is because I know it's true from praying and reading the scriptures. I am not a big reader, I don't find it that fun, but once I start to read the Book of Mormon I really don't want to stop. Some people have said to me that I believe in it because I don't have any outside experience and that they just keep you in a little box. But I have not always been the best person, I have done things that I really regret but there is nothing that I can do about it now other than repent and live the way I know that I should. I love the church and everything about it and I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that we do have a prophet on the earth today. I know that if whoever is reading this would just read it and pray sincerely about it asking if it is true then they would know just as I do that it is true. That's why I am a Mormon!

How I live my faith

So right now I am on my LDS mission, but before i came out i would still help out in anyway i could. For one I was a scout and being a scout you do a lot of service which is good and i could enjoy it. Also I would help out with just people in my ward and people not in the ward because i knew that they needed the help but i enjoyed it at the same time. But I love sharing the gospel with other people and yes I get a blank mind all the time, but when I am able to share the gospel with others and I don't worry to much about it I love it. I don't think it is hard at all, I just make it harder than it has to be! But I should always share the gospel whenever I get a chance I am learning that now on my mission!
