Hi I'm Adam Warr

I'm a soon to be law school graduate. I love fly fishing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My beautiful wife and I just had a gorgeous baby girl a little over 9 months ago. She takes a lot of our time and sometimes a lot of our patience, but she's a wonderful addition to the family. I'm on the verge of graduating from law school (thank heavens) and am excited to get out there and start paying off student loans. Don't get me wrong. I've enjoyed my time at school (for the most part). I've been lucky enough to have been enrolled at University of Idaho and have enjoyed living in the beautiful palouse region of Idaho for the last 4 years. It's a secluded part of the country, but the rolling wheat fields are incredible and I'll sure miss it when I'm gone. I love mountain biking, longboarding, and fly-fishing. I also love motorcycling. I did a trip from Idaho to Alaska a few years back and am anxious to do it again.

Why I am a Mormon

In a nutshell, I grew up Mormon. My parents would take me and my siblings to church each Sunday. I had a good time at church. They let me play basketball, go on campouts, and I had a lot of friends in the church. But even though I grew up in the church, it took me a while before I knew for myself that it was true. My crossroads came when I turned 19. My parents had bought me a suit for my birthday, which may not sound like a big deal, but for a mormon kid who has just turned 19 and is expected to go on a mission, that’s a big deal. But I wasn’t quite ready for that step. I told my parents that I didn’t know if the church was true and that I couldn't go out and preach something to others that I didn’t even know was true myself. So I started to have some heavy conversations with my Maker. I remember asking him if Joseph Smith was a real prophet and if the Book of Mormon was true. I was hoping that an angel would come and tell me or that I would have some miraculous experience that would leave no doubt in my mind were true. But that didn’t happen. I simply experienced quiet moments of peace and clarity as I read from the Book of Mormon. And from those moments, came simple but undeniable feelings that the Book of Mormon was true. It took me nearly a year and a half, but I finally put that suit to use and served a mission in Upstate New York. I continue to receive simple manifestations that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Right now I serve as the first counselor in the bishopric of a young single adult ward in the student stake at the University of Idaho. I try to help the bishop out with whatever he needs me to do. Sometimes its a lot of work, but I really enjoy it.
