Hi I'm Adrienne

Catholic father, Mormon mother...and I am their Mormon daughter.

About Me

As a dodgeballer in one of the most competitive cities in the world, I have come to appreciate good win and a fair loss. I work in advertising at one of the largest global agencies in the industry - and some days I feel empowered by it, others inadequate because of it, but mostly I realize that anyone with a strong work ethic could do my job (don't tell my boss that). I love sewing and being all sorts of crafty - although I don't have much time to do really satisfy my creative hunger. I ran my first marathon last year, just got scuba-certified, ride my Vespa with crazy cab drivers, practice my Spanish at the local Pizzaria (ironic, I know), and would way rather get up at 5:00 am every day than stay up until all hours of the night. My one claim to fame is making breakfast, lunch, and dinner for 70 people for 5 days...and called it a vacation.

Why I am a Mormon

If there is one word that I have truly learned to value and crave in this hectic world - it is PEACE. The doctrines and teachings in the Mormon church have truly filled my mind and heart with peace. Sure, I don't understand everything now, but as I am striving to learn to the best of my ability, there is a sense of harmony that I have with God. I am Mormon because I have never felt more complete, enlarged, and happy as I have by following its teachings.

How I live my faith

Every morning I wake up at 5:00 a.m., jump onto public transit, be the first to turn on the lights in the building, and volunteer my time teaching a bible-study class to high school student before they head off to school and I start my full-time job. It makes for a long day - but is one of the most rewarding things I have every done in my life. To talk about God with 14-18 year olds has opened my eyes to the way he is very aware of each of his children, no matter the age, education level, income level, or race. He genuinely wants our happiness.
