Hi I'm Adam

I've spent most of my life in the Phoenix area. I love to travel, snowboard, and play with my 6 kids. Oh and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I love to camp, hike, and fish with my family. Mostly just in Arizona, but sometimes we head to the coast. I also love to travel the world, usually it's for work, but I always find a way to have fun. I look forward to winter every year to go crazy on the mountains. My oldest is in her second year at BYU in Provo, UT. It's hard having her so far away, but I enjoy visiting her in the winter. The resorts in UT are amazing. This last summer we rented an RV and spent a month travelling up the coast to Seattle and back down. It was so much fun seeing all of the beautiful sites, and visiting family.

Why I am a Mormon

Mostly I'm a mormon because I was born into the faith. On my father's side my family goes back several generations to the pioneers. My mother was a convert from an Italian immegrant family in San Jose, CA. They taught be about the gospel of Jesus Christ from a very early age. As grew into a teenager, the church became less and less important to me. I stopped going and made many poor choices. Years later after my daughter was born I finally realized how important it was to be a forever family. I started going to church again and worked on getting the preisthood so I could give her a blessing. From then on I tried to live the gospel so we could be together in the celestial kingdom of heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to live the gospel every day of my life. I'm honest and kind to everyone I meet. I teach my children about how to live our faith as well, just as my parents did. I've volunteered for several years in the Boy Scouts of America teaching the boys in our church outdoor skills and how to be godfearing men. I try to study the scriptures and apply them to my everyday life.
