Hi I'm Parker

I grew up around Salt Lake City Utah. I like to spend lots of my time with family, go biking, play video games, and play frisbee.

About Me

I am a pretty tipical 18 year old for the valley I live in. Everyone in my family is lds except my older brother who is inactive, but still supports me and my family. I enjoy the outdoors especially rock climbing. After high school I got a job taking school photos to earn money. Most people here are lds like me and Like me many other boys are preparing to go on missions. It's part of the culture around here. All the non members know the mormon lingo and know why your leaving for 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I was born into this religion, but I continue to be a mormon because I belive the relegion and know that the things it teaches are true because I have seen the teachings make me and others around me happy. When I read the Book of Mormon and the bible regularly I have a more peaceful state of mind throught the day. I have watched as my uncles and aunts have gone on missions and see them return as better people and I want to follow in there foot steps.

How I live my faith

In my ward I teach a class for the newer members of the church, it's like a starter class. I see this fitting because i will be teaching many people that are new to the church on my mission. I also am a ward missionary. I go and make visits much like a full time missionary except I stay within the boundaries of my ward and don't have to live by all the full time missionary rules.
