Hi I'm Conner Parks

I'm a surfer, I'm a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Conner. I like to play guitar and I love to surf and travel. I am currently serving a full-time mission for Christ´s church in Torreon Mexico. I am fun, outgoing and thankful for all my friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because following Christ's teachings makes me happy. Having the fullness of the Gospel through the restored Church of Christ in my life has been a blessing and I wouldn't trade the opportunities that have come from the Church for anything. Through the church I am able to come unto Christ and worship Him as he has taught in the Bible and through modern day revelation. Worshipping God has brought sincere happiness to my life and without the gospel I feel alone and distraught. I am eternally thankful for the gospel and the support it offers me amidst the social chaos that surrounds my life. Recently i have been able to help many people here in Mexico come unto Christ and learn how to apply his teaching in their life. To be able to see how the simple application of Faith in Christ can completely turn a tragic life situations into a life full of love, hope, and success has really helped me to see the importance of Faith in God in our lives. The scriptures talk a lot about having a firm foundation in Christ, I am so greatful for the chance I have to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and to have a firm foundation in Christ. I am a very, very happy person and I owe it all to the simple teachings of Christ that I have learned in his true church.

How I live my faith

 I was raised in the Church and have grown near to many LDS friends in my community. Being able to surround myself with great examples and friends to support me has been ideal to remaining faithful and close to God. I live my faith by trying to be Christ like throughout my day to day life. I find that daily scripture study makes being Christ like far easier than it would be otherwise.
