Hi I'm Brook Kapukuniahi Parker

I grew up in Hawaii and am a artist and I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon)

About Me

Me and my wife Drena were sealed in the Laie Hawaii Temple almost 25 years ago, we are proud parents of 5 incredible children, and I love art, specializing in Hawaiian historical themes. I also love spending time at the beach with my family enjoying picnic bbq's, bodysurfing, and watching beautiful sunsets.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a fourth generation member of the church, born and raised by righteous parents. My personal conversion probably came during my church mission and upon returning home. I moved away, and started working. I always attended church, remaining active and striving to be an obedient son to Heavenly Father despite my many weaknesses and shortcomings. I continued to read the scriptures, study, pray and live the best I could. Today I can say beyond any doubt that I know this gospel is true, and this is the Church of Jesus Christ. I know our Heavenly Father lives and hears and answers our prayers and has a great Love for all his children. A love so great that he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to die and atone for our sins so we may return to live in their presence. I strive to show that love in return by raising my family in righteousness and teaching them to apply in their personal lives the teachings and principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Lord restored his church on earth in these the latter days through his Prophet Joseph Smith. I testify of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon, a second witness of Jesus Christ as recorded by the hand of his prophets who lived in the America's. I invite all who read this post to ask God of these things are true, if you do so with a sincere heart, with real intent , he will manifest the truth unto you by that same power of the Holy Ghost, and by the power of the Holy Ghost one may learn the truth of all things.

How I live my faith

I served a full-time mission in the South Dakota Rapid City Mission, (wife served in Kobe,Japan: a son Kuniahi in Jackson, Mississippi (Spanish speaking) and daughter Ke'ala currently in Baguio , Philippines. I am currently serving as 1st counselor in our stake presidency and have previously served as a Bishop and many other stake and ward callings. Part of my current responsibilities is the youth program and also missionary work. We raise our children to Love God first than their fellow men and to show this Love by service in the church and service to our community.
