Hi I'm Adam Frost

I am a devoted husband, and doting father of two sons, a profesional education advisor, a student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 27 years old. I have been happily married for over four years. I'm a father of a rambunctious two year old and a chunky three month old. We currently live in Mesa Arizona. I work for the University of Phoenix as an advisor with prospective students who want to improve their lives through education. I'm also a student earning my bachelors degree in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship. In addition to my duties there I'm in school to become a certified Myopracter. A Myopracter is similar to a Chiropracter but they focus on relieving pressure of joints, tendons, and muscles rather than forcing bone structures back into alignment. The practice is that by relieving those presures the bones realign themselves naturally! Eventually I want to own a practice to support my family and open up other investment and service opportunites. My wife has a twin sister who has Downs Syndrome as well as four nephews and nieces living with her parents, so we spend a great deal of time helping and assiting them in any way we can. I love football, basketball, paintball, and Mexican food. My wife loves swimming, shopping, making her sons laugh, dressing them up to look cute, and going out to dinner. My sons love flying, climbing, bouncing, crawling, smiling, laughing, crying, drooling, pooping, and most of all attention!!!

Why I am a Mormon

Initially because I was born in a Mormon family. As a teenager though I began to question if being a Mormon was really what I wanted to do. When I was 18 and went off to college I decided to prove once and for all if this "faith of my fathers" was true. I read the Book of Mormon, cover to cover, then got down on my knees, and prayed to God to give me an answer if it was true. I also asked that he give it to me in a way that I could understand it, since I'd never received and answer like this before. I prayed and prayed, but nothing happened. I went to sleep disappointed but still wishing for an answer. I was startled awake from a deep sleep at 5am the next morning, which is super early for a college student. I had a dream of seeing Jesus in a field on the opposite side of where I was. I ran to him, picked him up, and spun him around shouting as loud as possible for joy because he was real. Then I just hugged him and sobbed. I knew he was real, it was an answer that I understood. I knew the Book of Mormon was real; I knew the church was his church. I wanted to do what was right. I wanted to make him proud of me. That's why I'm a Mormon, I proved it true, and I cannot deny what I know is true.

How I live my faith

Practice what you preach. Actions speak louder and clearer than any amount of words can. If you preach faith in God, show faith in others and in yourself. If you preach repentance from sin, practice forgiveness with those around you as well as with yourself. My faith grows as I practice the principles that it teaches, not solely by acknowledging that they exist. I do my best, always trying to get better, learning to not condemn myself when I fall short. I am learning to both believe in Jesus Christ as well as believe Jesus Christ.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Adam Frost
This is one of the most beautiful things about being a Mormon, the belief and understanding of the belief that husbands and wives along with their children can live together forever. Just like we must pass certain classes to earn a particular college degree, we must obey certain laws, covenants, and commandments as directed by God to earn the chance to live together forever. We also understand that each member of the family must do their part, a parent cannot earn eternity for a child. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Adam Frost
We believe that this life is a union of a body and a spirit. When we die our body remains here while our spirit returns to God. There we wait till the day when our spirts and bodies are reunited into glorified, perfected beings of flesh and bone. We become immortal, never again being able to die. We call this being redeemed from the dead. Then we are brought before God to be judged of our works here on earth, whither they were good or bad. Also we will be judged according to the light and understanding of God that we had while performing those actions. We call this the Judgement. Then we are placed into one of three kingdoms of glory as spoken of by Paul in Corinthians. They vary in glory the way the Sun differs from the Moon and the Stars in raidiance. The higher the glory, the higher the radiance. We call this salvation. Those who are saved in the highest degree of glory, live with God forever, and have the oportunity to continue to progress. We call this exaltation. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Adam Frost
The Book of Mormon is a book of scripture similar to the Bible written by prophets inspired of God from the American Continent. It adds a second voice that teaches men that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. It does not diminish the Bible but enhances it's message. It shows that God was not a god just in the Middle East, but over the whole world. It is also a key part of our religion. If the Book of Mormon is true, than the man who published it was indeed a man inspired of God. That man's name was Joesph Smith. If the Book of Mormon is true, and the man who published it was inspired of God, than the church that he organized in God's name, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, also known as the Mormons, is the true church of God here on the earth. If we are honest with ourselves and love God more than the things of the world, we will humble ourselves to acknowledge this and follow him. All this comes from the Book of Mormon, by knowing and acknowledging that it is inspired holy scripture from God. Show more Show less
