Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in southern California. I served wonderful people in New Jersey. I'm a Water Jet operator. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happy. I am the youngest from a family of 6. All of them have been such good examples for me. I like outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, and running. I love going to the beach and Disneyland with my friends. I graduated from High School and have completed two semesters at BYU in Provo, Utah. I post-poned college to serve a two year mission in New Jersey. This by far has been the best and most important decision in my life. It has been a huge blessing to me and I love it! Now I'm back home and will marry my best friend in the summer. My testimony grows everyday with the trials and experiences that my Father in Heaven gives me. I know He loves me and even when I forget that, it's still true.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me Happy and I know it is the true church here on the earth. Look around the world. There are many sad faces all around the world. But if you look at Mormons, they're HAPPY. The truths and values that we embrace bring joy and love to my life. I have never had anything super hard happen to me but my family has had some trials. When ever something trying happened to my family I always stayed positive because I knew that NOTHING could separate us. I know that families can live together forever. I have been blessed with a perfect family. I thank my Lord everyday for the blessings He has given me. I love being a Mormon because I know that keeping the commandments and choosing to follow Jesus Christ will bless me and protect me. I also know that it is only through obedience to His commandments that our families are together forever. By living His Gospel, I know that He is on my right and on my left, and angels are around me to bear me up. I love Jesus Christ and my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live by faith. I love the peace and happiness it brings me. I may make mistakes here and there but I know that through repentance and the grace of Jesus Christ, all my mistakes and sins are wipe away. That brings me so much happiness and energy. I used to be happy all the time but for a long time I have been weighed down. I couldn't figure it out for the longest time. One day I was reading in the scriptures about repentance. It hit me that the only way to be happy is to repent. So many things go wrong that we need Christ's help to take the guilt and burdens from our shoulders. I have made a commitment to repent daily and ever since then I have been Happy. I'm filled with Joy that only comes from our Savior. I help others find that joy, and when they do, it in turn brings me more happiness because I know that they have found the true Joy that everybody wants and needs but doesn't know where to find it.
