Hi I'm Adam

I'm a Mormon. I Lived in Australia for two years. I'm married and love my children.

About Me

I am married and have three children. I have been in school for the past 9 1/2 Years. All three of our children were born while studying school. Many not of my faith have put off having children while in school. We did not. They are the best part of our life and bring endless amounts of Joy in our life. I work in the medical profession. It was the counsel of a Modern Day Prophet that kept me moving forward with my education. With out that counsel I don't think I would be where I am today. As I near the end of the educational process I see more clearly how the voice of a Prophet had a direct impact in my life. I love to camp, hike, fish, and ride the sand at the dunes.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the teachings of this church are in complete harmony with the scriptures. Because when the purpose of life is explained my questions are answered and my soul is satisfied. It feels right. Its easy to live and keeps me safe from much of the filth that exists today. One of my favorite teachings is that each of us is a Son or Daughter of God. Each of us has value to our Creator. This gives me power and strength when life gets challenging. I am a Mormon because I have read the Book of Mormon and it fills my heart with peace and understanding. It is true.

How I live my faith

Its very simple. You start with Prayer. Each day I pray to God asking that he will give guidance to the choices I make. Then I study the scriptures. In our house we pray a lot. We pray when we wake up, we pray before meal times, and we pray before we go to sleep. We attend church meetings weekly. I have responsibilities at church and love to serve others. There are many wholesome activities available for my children at church. It teaches them how to make correct choices that will bring happiness.

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

Adam
Because the Bible teaches us about the Savior whom we worship and whom we are striving to be like. We are Christians and therefore we read and study the Bible because it is a testimony of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Adam
I have spent a good portion of my life studying the marvels of the Human Body. One theme is that our bodies are not perfect nor will our tangible flesh remain young and vibrant. What we choose to put in our bodies whether food or drink does have lasting consequences. Why would I knowingly partake of any substance that would cause harm or at the very least hinder the normal function of this divine gift. If you abuse your body in any way there are consequences. You might not feel it today or tomorrow or next week but eventually you will. Our bodies are likened to temples because they are the earthly homes of our spirits. As we take care of our physical self we have a greater abundance of the spirit of God in us. Show more Show less
