Hi I'm Adri

I love running. I'm from Colorado. I love taking what is old and making it new again. I'm a runner. I'm a thrifter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Colorado. I love playing volleyball, or any other sport for that matter. I am a runner/marathoner in the making. I am a college student and have attended three different Universities. I have a passion for travel. I love airplanes, buses, cars, trains, and my hiking shoes. I love finding old, worn-out things and making them new again. I love thrift-store shopping. I watch "I Love Lucy" and "Boy Meets World" more than anyone else I know. I love old movies and some of the new ones. I am studying English Education and am fascinated by it. I have two brothers and one sister.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but was given the choice during my teenage years to leave or stay. I chose to stay. I began to learn more that this life isn't just about the things that money can buy or how much you have saved up at the end of it. It's really about love, the relationships you build with other people and with your God, your Heavenly Father. I volunteered as a missionary for the LDS Church for 18 months in Argentina. There I learned more about Jesus Christ and God's purpose for me and for everyone on this earth than I ever thought I would. I know that God loves us and that He has plan for each individual person on this earth. Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and through His teachings within His church I have found more happiness than I ever imagined I would have.

How I live my faith

When I volunteered for the LDS church in Argentina I learned more about loving others and really about how Jesus Christ was able to serve others. It is through His example that we can learn to love others and be happy in this life. I love serving and volunteering in the Church and in my community. It is a great way to get to know other individuals and really gain a greater appreciation for the people that surround us.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

 A testimony is really your feelings and your belief in God and Jesus Christ and the things that are taught in the scriptures or the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Everyone has their own testimony, it is an individual, personalized, knowledge, feeling and belief. Show more Show less
