Hi I'm Adi

I grew up in Shelley, Idaho. I am a basketball player, and a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey I'm Adi! I'm 21 years old. I grew up in Idaho and I've also been a member of the church since I was little. I come from what many call a broken family. I grew up with only dad as my parent. I had the privilege of serving a mission! I went to the very very south Texas, where Mexico is right next door and brisket on the table. I taught the people there about Jesus Christ and how they can really find happiness. I love reading the scriptures and helping other people come closer to Jesus Christ and I know that my Redeemer lives! I love to play sports and have fun with family and friends! I love learning about anything and trying out new foods. I love to have fun and make life an adventure!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Book of Mormon is true. Daily, I can feel the love that the Lord has for me through my prayers and through the scriptures. I know that Thomas S. Monson is called of God to be a prophet. I am strengthened every single day to be able to handle the struggles of life and the challenges that are thrown at each and every one of us. I know that I will be able to be with my family again after this life, which is the only thing I could ever want of my God. I have felt the power of God in my life through the priesthood. I know that God knows me personally and loves me more than I know! I know he is taking care of me and is blessing me as I keep his commandments and strive to help others to have the restored gospel in their lives!

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day, each night before I go to bed I pray to my Father in Heaven. I talk to him about my day and my concerns and troubles. I feel so much relief and strength as I speak to him in my prayers. I also enjoy reading this scriptures, which I know sounds weird! But I've noticed that when I've prayed to God and then I read my scriptures with my problems or struggles in mind, I always hear God's words to me, in the words of the Book of Mormon and the Bible. It's so amazing to see!

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Adi
The Book of Mormon is another book about our Savior Jesus Christ! It is a book of ancient scripture written by prophets in the Americas. The Book of Mormon teaches us how we can come closer to Jesus Christ and follow his teachings to the best of our ability. Our God, Heavenly Father, loves us so much that he called prophets to lead his people, and these prophets kept a record of the things that they learned and were taught by God, and eventually were able to witness the Savior Jesus Christ. These teachings contain God's plan for his children here on earth and the ways that we can find happiness in our lives! Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Adi
The Mormon missionaries all around the world have chosen to give a year and a half or 2 years to our Heavenly Father because they know that this church is true. They give of their own earnings and time to serve the Lord. They teach about the truth of the Restoration, that Joseph Smith restored the church of Jesus Christ and that we can return to live with our Father in Heaven with our families forever. They choose to give up our lives and time to help others find the happiness and truth that they desire. Show more Show less
