Hi I'm Colton Nile Adair

I grew up in Utah. I like soccer, running, hiking, hunting, fishing and hanging with family and friends. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 19 year old and enjoy being active, but there is nothing I enjoy more than being with my family and hanging out, camping, fishing, hiking, walking, watching movies, anything! I have 3 older brothers, a twin sister, and amazing parents! I attended Utah State University for a year where I am doing a dual major in Biomedical Engineering and Business, and am also on the track for Pre-med. However, I am taking a break from my career plans to serve a mission for the Church for two years in the Rapids City South Dakota Mission, and am grateful for the opportunity to grow and become the person I want to be.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because its helps me to always be improving in my life and brings me joy and happiness. Although I was born into the church that doens't mean everything has been peachy, I have struggles just like everyone else. But because I have the Gospel, it helps give me direction and purpose for life and gives me strength and courage to carry on and push forward. This Gospel has helped me to realize what I need to do in life, and how I can do it. As a missionary I can see the change that occurs in people as they come closer to their Savior and it is amazing, to see people turn their lives around and fulfil their potential. I am a Mormon because I love my family and want to be with them Forever, and can acheive that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by living it 24/7 in every aspect, and not just on Sunday. I teach lessons if necessary, help out with youth activities, shovel driveways for the elderly, hometeach families in my neighborhood, or do whatever is needed from the people in my ward and community and anywhere really! During my membership I have been put in leadership positions to help and strengthen those around me, whether they be older or younger or the same age. Every calling I have had is to serve those around me and to bless the lives of those I am around. I love my family with all my heart and support them in every way that I can, hoping that they know of my love for them. I live my faith now by serving a mission and helping people experience the same joy and happiness I have.
