Hi I'm Adam

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently studying to become a Nurse. I will have be a Licensed Practical Nurse at the end of Spring 2012, and want to go on to get my CRNA license within 8 years. My wife and I have 3 kids of our own and 2 foster children. We love to spend time going to local parks, hiking, and museums. Time is precious, especially right now with me going to school and working. My wife works as well. My dad is helping with the kids and around the house which allows us to still have family time and a clean house.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me how to be a good kid. Part of their raising me was always taking me to church. I made the choice to be baptized. My wife and I have done our best to raise our kids in the gospel, because of the blessings that it has brought in our lives all the while we were growing up. We know that the teachings and principles will help us to live eternally with our Heavenly Father as a family.

How I live my faith

In the Church I have served in many callings. As a young man, I was in charge of a group my age of planning and organizing activities we would perform each week. I continued to serve in leadership positions as I grew into my teenage years. I received my Eagle Scout Award before I was 18 years old. All of these positions, though not requisite, prepared me to serve a full-time mission for two years in the country of Panama. I returned from the mission and served in my local church teaching, planning, and organizing. I have worked in a financial capacity processing tithing and other donations. I have taught 12 and 13 year olds for a few of my most recent years. I have served as a home teacher, who teaches and cares for the needs of families in their homes. I am a quiet person, and this has helped me to get out and do things that I would not normally have done on my own. I appreciate these opportunities, even the difficult positions, because they help me learn and grow, mentally and spiritually.
