Hi I'm Par Rasmusson

I'm a videographer, I'm an environmentalist, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I believe that this earth was created by our Savior Jesus Christ under the direction of our Heavenly Father. It is a gift to us and we have a responsibility to take care of it.

Why I am a Mormon

Our Church has a rich heritage of Service. It is a part of who we are and what we do. We are taught to follow in the footsteps of the Master and that when we are in the service of our fellow beings we are only in the service of The Lord. Whether we are helping our near-by neighbors or serving in our national parks, it is all part of what Christ would have us do, and all are blessed.

How I live my faith

The scriptures teach us that "The fullness of the earth is yours. ...all things which come of the earth, in the season thereof, are made for the benefit and the use of man, both to please the eye and to gladden the heart... and to enliven the soul." I am the local Service Leader for the largest environmental organization in North America. I organize and plan service projects for Volunteers in our national parks and wilderness areas. By bringing Volunteers together we help the national parks, we unite in friendship and purpose, and we become better stewards of this earth the Lord has made for us. We give back, as it were, and in the process our hearts are gladdened and our souls enlivened.
