Hi I'm Adam

I rock climb. I help others everyday. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful, dynamic woman and we have three vibrant boys. My greatest joys are watching my sons learn truth and grow. I love to spend time with my wife and family, whether it consists of taking a hike, working on the house or yard, or getting on the floor and wrestling. We love to do things for others, especially in the neighborhood.

Why I am a Mormon

I was lucky enough to have been born to a Mormon family. I have been taught the principles of the Gospel since my youth. However, and this is the important part I find it interesting that despite my upbringing, I had to go through the conversion process like anyone else. I had to learn and study and pray to know the truth of what had been taught me. I've seen many with similar backgrounds that have not gone through this rigor and consequently have lost the faith their parents tried to give them. Through difficult experiences, I've learned to rely on the Lord and trust in his plan for me.

How I live my faith

I try my best to teach my children the truth I have been given. It is interesting to me how vital the principles of the gospel are, not only in raising children, but in raising the parents as well! My wife and I continually find ourselves returning the to principles of the gospel to guide us in our parenting We try to encourage our children to make service a central part of their lives. We ask them each night at dinner what they have done to help others. We also strive to show good examples by serving each other as well as family and friends.

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

Adam
Incredible! I can't imagine a more fulfilling way of life! Even though we abstain from many of the so-called "pleasures" of life such as alcohol, addictive substances, pre-marital sex, and gambling, we enjoy the peace of knowing our Heavenly Father approves of our conduct. We dance, sing, laugh, play, hike, explore, socialize, and the best part is: we can remember what we did last night and don't feel guilty about it! Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Adam
Not at all. Our Church leadership has sent incredible amounts of relief and aid to those in need, especially in natural disasters. While the congregations we participate in provide convenient opportunities to serve other Mormons, we strive to reach out to our communities and anyone who could benefit from our help.
