Hi I'm Adam

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 5 kids that came to me by way of the most amazing woman alive. I work in multimedia for TD Ameritrade. I graduated with a degree in English, so I still write to keep my creative edge.

Why I am a Mormon

Anyone who's read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it's true will understand why I'm a Mormon. The doctrine of this church, as revealed from Jesus Christ, teaches me to use my agency for purposes that will bring me joy. If I live this gospel, I know I can be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as a cub scout den leader. I also teach Sunday School lessons to young children when their regular teachers are out of town. I help people move in or out when they need it. I visit 3 amazing families once a month to strengthen them spiritually and see what material needs they might have. When I was 19 years old, I served a 2-year mission in La Paz, Bolivia.

What is the Law of Chastity?

Adam
Keeping oneself free of sexual impurity. Sexual bonds between a married man and woman are the most sacred rites on Earth. Through procreation we can realize the most special blessings the Lord has reserved for us. Satan would have us misuse this power, which abuse leads to misery. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Adam
It's a simple belief that grows into knowledge. It's sharing what you know to be true. Show more Show less

Why do some call Mormonism a cult?

Adam
Not sure. I assume they'd call the church a cult because they don't know much about it. People tend to stereotype things they don't understand. Show more Show less

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Adam
An ordinance performed without authority is like a speeding ticket from the next-door-neighbor. Jesus Christ taught that His ordinances must be carried out under proper authority. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Adam
Just as we had a pre-mortal life, we will live on after this life. This life is a chance to experience mortality and learn to use our agency wisely. Eternal life is life with our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Adam
It's the word of God--a testimony of Jesus Christ. Read the Bible and pray to know that it's true. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Adam
There's contact info on lds.org. You can talk to missionaries. Talk to members of the church. If you want to know more, just reach out. Show more Show less

How does the Church finance its operations?

Adam
Tithing. We volunteer to pay 10% of our income to the church. Having said that, the blessing FAR outweigh what we pay. I know that we've been blessed beyond measure because of this simple principle. Show more Show less
