Hi I'm Adam

I love playing football and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing football. I have played football since I was 10, and it is my passion. I had always dreamed of earning a scholarship and playing college football. Through much struggle, I fulfilled that childhood dream and signed a Letter of Intent. I will be putting my scholarship and dream on hold for two years to serve a mission for my church. I have two older brothers who I look up to a lot. They both chose to serve mission, and I am excited to follow in their footsteps. I can't wait to share the joy that the gospel has brought into my life with the people down in Chile.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was born, my parents were members of this church and attended regularly. My parents taught me the values and importance of Jesus Christ and his church. At the age of 8, I was baptized by my dad and officially became a member of the church. When I became a young teenager, I began to stray from what my parents had taught me. I chose to do the 'cool things' to try to fit in. I valued what my friend's thought more than what my parents thought. I was not happy because of these choices. I decided to make a change and try to read the scriptures to see if they were true. As I started praying and reading daily, I was so much happier with myself and more optimistic on life. I gained the knowledge of Heavenly Father's plan for me that my parents had been trying to instill in me. Now, I can not deny the feelings of peace and happiness that I feel as I grow closer to the Spirit. I know that Jesus Christ died and atoned for my sins so that I can experience these feelings of joy. I know that you can experience these same feelings of joy through Christ. I know that never ending happiness and joy is a result of obedience to God's commandments.

How I live my faith

I try to follow the Savior's example by serving others and sharing the message of Jesus Christ.
