Hi I'm Adam

I love baseball. I love vacations. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy being the oldest of five children in my family. I have lived in Provo, Utah for most of my life. I went to BYU in the fall, but am now preparing to serve an LDS mission in Fukuoka, Japan for the next two years. I love playing and watching sports, especially baseball. I am a huge Anaheim Angels fan so I try to go to as many of their games as I can. One of my main goals in life is to own a baseball hat from every Major League team that has existed. Being from Utah, I also love skiing. Each winter, I look forward to skiing with family and friends on the slopes. I try to branch out and ski one new resort every year. I'm probably a little obsessed with skiing but the snow in Utah is too good not to take advantage of. My best memories in life come from family vacations. I have had the privilege of going to many cool countries, but my favorite place to be is the beach. I have always loved swimming in the ocean and playing beach volleyball games with my cousins.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the LDS church perfectly fits who I am and who I want to become. I am forever grateful for the knowledge and skills I have acquired from this church. The happiness this church has brought me is unobtainable anywhere else. It feels so normal for me to listen to and obey the rules of this church, which is a testimony to me that it's true. I know it seems hard for some people to follow the rules of the LDS church, but I promise that living these rules brings you more happiness than any other lifestyle ever could.

How I live my faith

As of right now, I don't have a church calling. In the past however, I have served as a leader over other members my age. I have recently been preparing for my mission to Japan by reading the scriptures and trying to learn as much Japanese as I can before I leave, although the language isn't coming along too easily so far! I love having the opportunity to serve a mission and definitely won't take it for granted. I understand that I have the responsibility to change others' lives by sharing the gospel in Japan and I am going to do everything I can to do just that.
