Hi I'm Paige Park

I grew up moving all around the United States. I'm currently serving a mission in Pocatello, Idaho. I love to dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up moving all around the United States. My dad was in the military so I've lived everywhere from Washington State in the northwest corner of the country, to Georgia in the southeast. I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah last year, and I am now serving a mission in Pocatello, Idaho. I love to dance, specifically ballet, and I hope to join BYU's Theatre Ballet Company after my mission. I love to travel and learn about other cultures. I don't know what I want to major in yet, but I hope I'll figure that out in the next few years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, but I'm certainly not a blind believer. I have studied and prayed to know if the gospel taught by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true, and have received several witnesses that it is. My testimony was solidified after I read the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon is an incredible book of scripture that contains many truths that compliment and add to the Bible. The Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith, the prophet who restored the fulness of the gospel to the earth. He, and all subsequent prophets are inspired men who guide and direct us according to what our Heavenly Father wants for us. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and he atoned for my sins. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and is mindful of my every need. This gospel is the key to true happiness in this life and it provides the assurance that we can return to live with our Heavenly Father, as well as our families, after we die. It brings peace and joy to all those willing to exercise faith and learn of it. I am a Mormon because being a Mormon enlightens me with truth and helps me to understand what my purpose is in this life, as well as in the life to come.

How I live my faith

I decided to serve a mission and dedicate a year-and-a-half of my life to serving the Lord and sharing my faith with others. I love the peace and happiness that being a member of the church has brought me and I want everyone to be able to experience it.
