Hi I'm Adam

Scientist, government policy maker, a dad with bad jokes, and a Mormon.

About Me

Coming from a small welsh industrial town I find London HUGE - but I like it. I live here with my three, soon to be four, kids and my wife. There is something wonderful about the diversity and vibe of London that I think will be great for my kids as they get older. I hope it helps them understand about life. I grew up with a brother who had sever physical disabilities and learning difficulties. I always wanted to understand how that could happen - both at a scientific level and a spiritual. This lead me to study biological sciences at Univeristy and to get a PhD and do research in biochemsitry. In time I realised that what i love is trying to understand problems and also doing something that makes a difference. So now I am a government policy maker and sometimes I do feel like I make a difference...sometimes. As for the spirtual answers they came too... For fun I like playing in the woods with kids, reading, watching Wales lose/play rugby and occasionally run short distances.

Why I am a Mormon

I always knew in my heart that there was something out there. My challenge was to reconcile the doubts and questions in my head with what people and the scriptures would teach me. In time I came to realise there is no meta-physical or philispohical proof for the absence or existence of god. But there are very good arguments for both sides. As I now realise is the case for most people the 'argument' I accepted was based on my own life experience. And it was surprisingly simple. I felt Gods love in times and ways that I knew it was no self-inflicted experience. I remember one time praying by the side of my bed that God would help my brother not feel the pain he felt as a result of his disability any more. In my heart I felt an overwhelming feeling of how much God loved me and he loved him. I knew it and the feeling made me feel like flying. The reason I am a Mormon as opposed to any other denomination is that I have similarly felt in my heart - in a way I then recognised was from him - that he had restored His church on the earth to help hime reveal the fulness of his truth. When you know that, and you trust and love God you want to be a part of that church. Having lived the teachings and seen how it has blessed my family I know the teachings are true.

How I live my faith

I try.
