Hi I'm Adam

Born and raised in American Fork, Utah. I love meeting people from all walks of life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I like pretty much any type of sporting activity, because I believe it is a fun way to stay in shape, and a great opportunity to have fun and meet other people. That goes for anything from football to frisbee, ping-pong to wake-boards, and softball to scuba. Pretty much any fun activity with cool people and I'm there! I am married and have a beautiful wife, and two darling little girls. They are still quite young, but we have a lot of fun together. Whether that is going to the beach, on a fun hike, or lounging around watching movies on the ipad. Our family motto is to work hard, but play hard too! Currently, I am pursuing a graduate degree in Business Management (MBA), and enjoy exploring new venture opportunities. Business development is a passion of mine, and I particularly enjoy Global Marketing. The world seems to be getting smaller and smaller, and we are all influenced by that whether we like it or not!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe the Book of Mormon to be true. For me, it really boils down to that book. It is something tangible that I can hold in my hand as a confirmation that the Gospel has been restored to this earth. I have read the Book of Mormon cover to cover, and have felt the spirit in my heart testifying to me that it is true. I have lived its teachings, and am constantly reminded of our Heavenly Father's love for ALL of us. I am so grateful for that book, and hope that others have the opportunity to open their hearts and learn. I believe it was written for our day and time, and that by studying its words, we can become closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by example. Over the years, I have had many different responsibilities in the church, and have enjoyed the challenge that each one has brought me. Whether that is organizing a ward choir, instructing the young teenage men, organizing missionary efforts or serving as a full-time missionary myself. I have learned that when serving, we forget about ourselves and focus on other people, which in turn brings about great joy. I am happy to help others when I can, and my life has been blessed for doing so. I believe my little family is particularly blessed each and every day because of my full-time missionary service. Living away and working for two years was difficult at the time, but it has brought me such happiness ever since.
