Hi I'm Adam Peter Bell

I love my wife, I love my daughter, I love Newcastle United, I love my family and friends and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm Adam I'm a father of one little girl called Ava who is almost 8 months now and have been married since 2012 to my beautiful wife and eternal companion Grace, I work for a big UK telecommunications company called EE in Business retentions which i have done since 2006 and I love what I do. I live in a town called Washington in the north east of England and i love football , i love to follow Newcastle United. I also enjoy kickboxing when time allows just to try and keep fit and its very enjoyable. I love movies and have a real passion for them I have started to review films and write a blog on them.

Why I am a Mormon

What better way to describe why i am a Mormon than to share my conversion story. I was originally born in the church and at the age of 3 i was adopted outside of the church although people who were members of the church tried to adopt me it wasn't the path that was chosen for me and I was brought up by non member parents who i love dearly. When i was about 22 I was not the best of people and had disagreement with my parents and left home and went to search for my brothers and sisters but the first person i was directed to was my birth cousin and aunty and this was about January 2008 i never really got to know anything about the church until i was starting to investigate it when my friend Chris who is my cousins boyfriend now husband took me to his chapel and then i approached the missionaries and asked to be taught. I had the first discussion about Joseph Smith and the first vision and i was actually laughing at them thinking this is ridiculous. Now i come to realise this was very rude and they were completely correct. four weeks later and i was baptized a member of the church. I have studied the book of Mormon and have come to know by asking my heavenly father that the book is true. I no longer believe in coincidences as how can being born in church then losing contact to then join back to the church after having no idea what a Mormon was. Meeting my wife was meant to be also because she had only returned to church after being less active since she was 13 about 6 month before we met and through her sister as me and her sister were good friends , we then got married a year after meeting each other and now have a lovely daughter so myself making the decision to become a Mormon has now created another generation which could lead into many generations to come all because of the faith i had to pray for the first time in my life. If you said to me 6 years ago would I be quoting and reading scriptures I would of said not to be so silly.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is such a huge importance in my life , I aim to try and live it as diligently as i can. For my faith it is not just a Sunday thing but every day. Nothing shows example more than action. I have a responsibility at church which requires me to be organized with my time as I need to prepare and teach lessons ready for the Sunday or attend various meetings. I love to serve in my responsibility as i am the most happiest when i am serving others. Also between once and twice a month I set out a night to go out with a companion and do some home teaching which basically is when we go out to specific families who are members of the church and teach them a subject that may be more fitting and to be a Shepard and watching over them and seeing if there is any needs with the families and to assist in anyway.Before i did this responsibility I was involved teaching to young men of the church between the ages of 13 and 18 which is the most important age I believe to teach and have an influence on. Once again the best way to teach about my faith is to live it and love it.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Adam Peter Bell
I was unable to Serve a mission due to the age and financial commitments when I joined the church but that hasn't stopped me serving the the best of my ability in other ways and remember the lord knows your heart and desires. Show more Show less
