Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in Broomfield, Colorado. I am a university student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I am Adam, I am university student studying the humanities. I am preparing to become a teacher. I love to study and learn new things especially about different cultures. I lived in England for a while and loved getting to know the people there. I like to spend time with my friends and especially love playing sports with them. I particularly like soccer and ultimate frisbee.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I grew up a Mormon, I am a Mormon now because I know that living what I have been taught has made me happy. When I lived in England, I started wondering if what I had grown up with was true. I never questioned what I had been taught before that time. These doubts caused me to reflect a lot and seek help from God through prayer. He answered my prayer in a talk that I listened to one day. As the speaker closed his talk, he said something that pierced my soul. He said, "When you have doubts, look to the fruits (or results) of your feelings." In that moment, I knew what I had been taught was right. I have been so blessed by living the principles I have been taught. I am not wealthy, famous or extremely talented, but I am happy. I am happy because I have what cannot be bought or sold: peace, love, and hope.

How I live my faith

Though I grew up as a Mormon, I have always had close friends who do not believe what I believe. One friend in high school did not have a belief in God and we would often discuss the topic of religion or why the Mormons would do something or not do something. We always had positive conversations and both of us would feel like we knew more about the other view. I always try to let my friends know where I stand and why I choose to live the way I do.

What do Mormons believe happens to us after we die? What do Mormons believe about life after death?

Mormons declare that death is not the end of an individual. Death is the separation of the body and the spirit. The spirit continues to live but not in a body. This is a waiting period and not the final state of the soul. Through Jesus Christ, all mankind will be resurrected, meaning that the spirit will be reunited with a perfected body. All mankind will then be immortal, never to physically die again. Those who are faithful in this life will have the opportunity to live with God, Jesus Christ and their families forever afterward.
