Hi I'm Parker

I'm from Oregon (but I now live in Utah). I am preparing to serve a 2 year mission in Scotland and Ireland. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Portland, Oregon. I love rain, music, longboarding, golf and spending time with friends and family. I am the second in a family of 4 kids. I have one older sister and two younger brothers. I have completed one semester of college and now I'm heading off to serve a two year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for a few reasons. It started out as a nice environment to be around. I also like the values. I have a healthy life both physically, socially, and spiritually. All are supported and nurtured by the values I live and learned to love. I was fortunate enough to be born a Mormon but the actual belief and faith comes with time and throughout my life I have had various experiences that have strengthened my belief and they are the reason I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have had a lot of experience with the youth group in my church. I have participated in lots of activities that have taught me how to love and serve others. I now get the chance to teach a Sunday class of teenagers. I have also been able to be in leadership positions which have helped me grow and build my faith.
