Hi I'm Adam

I'm originally from California and now live on the east coast and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a loving husband and father. I have a wonderful daughter named Corinne who is almost 2 years old. My wife, Mary Ann, is the best mother and my best friend. I absolutely love watching college football and rugby. I recently graduated business school and now live in New Jersey with my family. I work in NYC in corporate finance.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know the Book of Mormon is true. I was raised a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints but when I was younger didn't always enjoy attending Church. When I was in middle school, my father passed away from cancer. This was a traumatic experience for someone my age and opened up a flood of emotions and questions. Why did God take away someone so meaningful to me at such a young age? This was the type of questions I struggled to answer on my own. Fortunately I had loving people in my life (both members of the Church and not) that helped me through this difficult time. What I found most comforting was being able to kneel in prayer and talk with my Father in Heaven. He comforted me in ways I cannot express. Through living his commandments, reading the scriptures, and serving others I have developed a testimony of the truthfulness of His church. I know that Jesus Christ is my personal savior and I love him. I know that the Priesthood of God has been restored in its fulness through a prophet of God. I know Joseph Smith saw God the Father and Jesus Christ. I know that families can be together forever through the temple and that makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I love being able to serve in various Church assignments. Most recently, I was a ward mission leader. I worked closely with the full-time missionaries to assist them in teaching people who are not of our faith. I worked with other members of our Church to find out ways we can serve people in our community.
