Hi I'm Warren Park

I'm a triathlete, a speech & debate finalist, an author, an artist, a bookworm, a baritone, a thespian, a violinist, and a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Texan, but a city kid. I grew up in a family as the oldest of 5, and graduated from High School with an all-A record. I love to travel, and one day I hope to see the world. I love to read anything I can get my hands on, and enjoy watching movies (even if the book is better). Performing is what I live for, and even if it isn't flawless or if I'm not ranked number one or if I'm a background character, the stage is where I'm happy. I'm what you would call an extrovert- making friends and building relationships is important in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen this faith and have a testimony that it is the true church of Jesus Christ upon the earth because I asked God in prayer and He, through His Holy Spirit, told me this was right. I know that through Christ's Atonement, all mankind can be saved by obedience to the laws of the gospel and faith in Jesus Christ. The blessings that have come from being a Mormon have changed my life, and made me into the best person I could be. I can someday live with my family forever, and know that God will help me overcome every trial that comes. Many years ago, a young boy (Joseph was his name) prayed in a forest near his home to ask God, the Eternal Father, which church he should join. In answer to his prayer, our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, appeared to Joseph and told him to join none of them, for they were all wrong. Soon, they told him, the fullness of the Gospel would be made known unto him. Now, skipping forward nearly 200 years later, another young boy (me this time) went to that same forest to ask if Christ's church had been restored through Joseph. Upon arriving in the grove of trees, I sat down on the forest floor to read from the scriptures and ponder the beauty around me. I soon found myself in such pain of both mind and body, I cannot describe it. I could not read, I could not think. I could hardly cry out. But I rolled onto my knees, and petitioned God to deliver me. I admitted that those who ask for a sign ask for condemnation, and testified to Him that I did believe He had come to Joseph so many years ago; however, I was in such a struggle that it proved nearly impossible for me to feel anything. I asked for the deliverance made possible through Jesus Christ, that I might not only experience relief, but strengthen my faith in Him, and confirm my testimony of what happened. As I closed in the name of Christ, the "amen" had scarcely left my lips when I felt the pain vanish; feelings of joy came in my heart, and I knew God heard me.

How I live my faith

I am serving a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, in Virginia and North Carolina. I strive to be a disciple of Jesus Christ, which means to me selflessly serving others, and striving to become like Him. I am by no means perfect, and make mistakes every day, but I know that through Christ, and with God, all things are possible.
