Hi I'm Adam Balinski

I'm a loving husband, daddy, and friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love people. I love learning. I love life. My wife, son and daughter mean the world to me. I enjoy guitar, piano, singing, and sports. I'm currently working as corporate trainer for a medical software company. I used to work in broadcast journalism as a reporter/anchor.

Why I am a Mormon

What is real and how can we know it? I have come to believe that love and peace, etched upon the mind and heart, are God's signatures of truth. While I don't know many things, God has written some truths on my soul. We are children of God. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. Joseph Smith restored Christ's church in our day. We have the power to choose for ourselves what we will become and our ultimate happiness or misery. If we forget ourselves, serve God and man with all our hearts, and rely on Jesus Christ, then we will have peace in this world and a fulness of joy in the next. One day, we can have a heart, a home, and a happiness as pure as His.

How I live my faith

I try to make my family my top priority. I strive to work hard and play hard. My kids give me plenty of exercise. I love watching my children grow. I try to be honest in all I do. I enjoy doing random acts of kindness. I enjoy helping people overcome their addictions. I devoted two years of my life serving as a missionary in Sweden. Vad fantastiskt!

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Adam Balinski
Think of someone you really admire, someone who inspires you to be your best you. That's how Joseph Smith is to Mormons. We honor and respect him as a prophet, and are inspired by his character as a person. We are deeply indebted to him for the instrument he was in the Lord's hands in restoring the church. But we do not pray to him, or worship him. Show more Show less
