Hi I'm Parker

I grew up in Utah. I love to ski, climb, and anything else outdoors. I'm serving a mission in Macedonia. Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors! Living in Utah it is impossible to not do something that involves the outdoors! I especially love winter. I love to ski, hike, hammock, and rock climb. I also love photography and I bring my camera anytime I go outdoors. I played football and tennis in high school! Pretty much to sum me up is I love being outside!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the faith but struggled finding my own testimony of this Church. I didn't want to be a part of something my parents knew was true but I wasn't sure of for my self. One thing i have never struggles with was Christ's teachings! One of his teachings that is most important to me is serving others! When i participated on my humanitarian trips I had the opportunity to visit and LDS branch in each of the countries I served in. I saw how much the gospel meant to there lives and how desirous they were to live it! I wanted that same desire. So as I came home from those humanitarian trips I began to focus more on what this church had to offer! Through the teachings and doctrines of Christ i came to know that the LDS church is just that! This church is centered around Christ's teachings. I love my savior Jesus Christ. He has given so much for me and i strive to become like him through service and charity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by practicing one of Christ's key teachings, that being charity and service. I have served on two humanitarian trips. One was to Bolivia where my group helped build a school for children in Santa Cruz. My other humanitarian trip was in the Dominican Republic. There my group and I helped build a medical clinic for a community in Santiago. Service is my favorite thing to do. I love helping others how Christ would! I am now currently serving a mission in the Adriatic South mission. I will be serving my mission in Macedonia. I am so excited to spread the Gospel wear Paul once did!!
