Hi I'm Parker Sirrine

I love movies, food, and music. I play volleyball and love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a senior in high school about to graduate and I just received my mission call to the Nicaragua Managua North mission! I love to watch feel-good, funny, and action movies. I enjoy eating good food and also reading even though I don't do it very often. I have always been in the school choir and I also love to play sports, mainly volleyball. I think holidays are the best days of the year. Having fun and spending time with my family and friends is probably what gives me the most joy... other than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I want to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I know he is my Savior and Redeemer and that He and God the Father know me individually and they care about me. I have felt the power of Christ's atonement in my trials helping me to be strong and get through them. How I've gained this testimony is by prayer. Even though I have been a member my entire life, I read the Book of Mormon and sincerely prayed to God asking if it was true. I had to be patient and diligent in doing this and eventually I received my answer that the Book of Mormon is the word of God which means that Joseph Smith was His prophet and that this is Christ's church here on the earth. That answer has brought me the most amount of joy I have ever experienced in this life and it continues to do so.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the best I can to be like my savior and redeemer Jesus Christ and by doing what He has asked. I try to read my scriptures and have meaningful prayer everyday to allow me to feel the Spirit and have direction and purpose in my life. Serving people is a great way to live my faith because it entails action. Another way is by keeping high standards for myself and by surrounding myself with friends who have these kinds of standards too. I know that the Lord blesses me as I try my best in this life to return to Him again.
