Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in Taylorsville, Utah. I love to compete in triathlons, & play racquetball. I lived in Santiago,Chile. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I love to bike and play raquetball. I love to travel with my family. We love to attend college football games and professional basketball games. I love all kinds of music and play the guitar. I hope to someday be an awesome Bar-b-que chef. I work for a medical software company. 

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a teenager I decided that I had to find out for myself if the LDS church was true. I had been raised in the church, but I wanted to know for myself. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I felt very strongly a love and peace that spoke to my heart. I did not have a great vision or hear an angel, but I will always remember the joy and peace I felt that day. I decided I had to document my experience so I wrote on my desk in my room "I know the church is true". Over time as I have heard the testimonies of others, and chosen to live the principles of this church, that same feeling of peace and assurance has come back to me again and again. I find hope and peace in this gospel. I find comfort in knowing that my elder brother Jesus the Christ died for my shortcomings, my sorrows, my pains, my frustrations, and my sins. He and my Father in Heaven love me in spite of my mistakes. They want to hear from me even in the small concerns I have. I hope that others that might read this will know that there is so much good from our Heavenly Father. Whatever path we are on, if we can get even a little bit closer to God, we will be blessed.

How I live my faith

I work with the youth in my community. I find much hope and energy in their commitment to follow God's plan. I love to see how they are happy and have direction in their life. When so many teenagers are lost and confused, I find most of the youth I get to work with to be inspirational and mostly at peace with their lives. I love to visit neighbors and offer help and encouragement. I find that I am strengthened and blessed every time I do this. Even though the intent is to help and encourage others, I am often the one that receives strength and peace.
