Hi I'm Danielle Parke

I'm the fourth child out of seven. I'm serving a mission in Mesa, Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Utah. I'm the fourth child out of seven, and my family is by far my favorite people. I graduated high school in 2014 and since then I have gone to a year of college, worked for an incredible Senior Care facility, and decided to serve a full-time mission. I grew up in the LDS religion, and throughout my life it has given me more peace and happiness than anything else. Because of the happiness it brings me, I would feel selfish to not share it with others. I hope to one day be sealed in the temple for time and all eternity and to raise children of my own in this gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I can honestly say that I know that this is the gospel that Jesus Christ taught when He was on the earth. Life isn't always easy, but this gospel makes even the lowest points of life worth it. I am a Mormon not only for this reason, but because I know that the doctrines that are taught in this gospel are real and true. I know without even the slightest doubt that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that we have a living prophet today who receives guidance from our Heavenly Father. The Book of Mormon is true. I know this because I have read it and I have prayed about it and have received an answer from Heavenly Father through the Holy Ghost. If you have any questions in your heart I know that if you ask with a sincere heart that you will always be answered.

How I live my faith

The best way I live my faith is by loving others. Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ provide the perfect example of the kind of charitable, unconditional love that we should have towards everyone around us. I am able to use this love everywhere I go in my life, with work, school, in my church callings. As I've made it a point throughout my life to love those I am around I have seen happiness grow in others and in myself. I know that by doing this I am able to be closer to our Savior and his perfect example.
