Hi I'm Parker!

From Farmington, Utah. Now, in Southern California. In 2006 TIME Magazine named me the Person of the Year. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Parker Ballantyne. Textbook stereotype and highly replaceable. My Heely's don't have breaks because my swag rides on forever. I was raised in Northern Utah and graduated from Viewmont High School. I am currently serving a mission in California Ventura, and after this I am going to go to Utah State to further my education and watch some college football. I enjoy things. some of those said things include listening to music and watching sports, although I don't have the abilities to perform either of those things. I can probably balance on a curb longer than you can though. Family comes first. Bless up.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Parker!
I'm not sure my lifestyle is the most characteristic of most members of the Church. My lifestyle is pretty laid back. Just looking for what makes me happy. A lot of hanging out with friends and family and just taking it easy and listening to music. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Parker!
Life... The enormity and complexity of Outer Space... Cold pizza... Netflix... bubble wrap... peanut butter... The fact that I don't have a peanut allergy... In-n-out... The smell of grass on a baseball field... nature... when girls wear Vans sk8 hi's... 7-Eleven slurpees... The feeling I get when I quiet my mind and try to listen to Him... Show more Show less

Is it true that Jesus appeared in North America after his crucifixion and resurrection according to the Book of Mormon?

Parker!
It is true that Jesus Christ visited America. Just as true as any other recorded event in North American History. i.e. The American Revolution, the New York Mets winning the world Series in 1986, Kanye taking the mic from Taylor Swift at the VMA's, and Tony Hawk landing a 900. These things are all recorded in American History books, Christs visit to the Americas is too. It is called the Book of Mormon and it is true. Show more Show less
