Hi I'm Selah Parris

I'm from St. Louis, Missouri. I served a mission in London, England. Now married to my best friend and love of my life.

About Me

I love spending time with my family. I look forward to having my own. I got married recently to a wonderful man named DeShaun and I am so grateful. I love surprises. I love making surprises happen. I love Jesus Christ more than anything and thinking about the Atonement when things are hard or great helps me remember Him and feel grateful. I will forever be grateful for the mission I served and I think about it every single day.

Why I am a Mormon

Because this is the true gospel of Jesus Christ. Because I cannot deny it. Because I love the comfort and lasting peace and happiness this gospel brings. Because I can be with my family forever. Because I can be married for eternity. Because if I ever feel sad or depressed I know that it will not last and the knowledge of the plan of salvation is incredibly wonderful and such a blessing that God has given me. Because with this knowledge I know I am a loved daughter of God.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by loving my husband, by reading the scriptures, attending the temple regularly, studying and praying with my husband, and attending sacrament meeting weekly. I would love to share the gospel in my mission again but for now I will just reach out to those who I taught and follow up with them and continue to help them understand the importance of a knowledge of Christ.
