Hi I'm Adam C. Price

I was born and raised in Midvale Utah. I love creativity, building relationships, and being an instrument in the hands of the God.

About Me

I am currently in the Des Moines, Iowa Mission for the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It's the best thing I've ever done, and I love it so much! Among my many dreams and goals, my greatest desire is to have a humble, homegrown, loving family; supported, nurtured, and well cared for by the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I want to love my children, and do the best I can to raise them to be caring, strong, righteous, affluent men and women. Interests: I've been told I'm an "artist with business sense". I have great desires and dreams of innovative advertising campaigns and breakthrough media representation. I attended college studying 'Mass Communications and Public Relations' and often work freelance to help those who are less tech savvy / artistically enabled to achieve affordable visual representation. I also enjoy greatly enjoy assorted video games, comic books, superhero lore and nearly anything involving strategy and imagination (board games, sports ect). I like to be active, I rock climb, run, cycle, swing dance, perform Improv Comedy, and DJ Karaoke.

Why I am a Mormon

I could put down a long list of reasons, feelings and experiences that have supported my decision to be a member of the church of jesus christ of latter day saints. However the three biggest reasons why i'm mormon: 1.The core beliefs of the church promote simply, being a good person. I have many friends who aren't weekly active in the church but because they believe in the principles of the gospel they are positive, contributing members of society. 2. Believe it or not: The church has yet to bring forth a teaching, or standard of living that I disagree with. Though some standards are difficult to maintain I have always been able to see a logical reason behind them. (i've never had a reason to doubt the church) 3. The Church teaches of a life before and after this life. And the ability to be connected to and live with our loved ones pass on from this world. The fact that our life is not just a meaningless period of existance but a small trial of faith within a greater plan of hapiness. Kinda like when you're in highschool is seems so important, but when your 72, suddenly its a short faint memeory of things you learned and people you knew.I lost my mother at a young age, and knowing I will be able to live with her hereafter, is very comfoting and allows me to work hard knowing we will meet again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time, from simple acts of honesty to greater opportunities to serve. I have had many opportunities to serve within the church. Within the duties delegated to me i've had the opportunity to use my talents and abilities to support and strengthen the members of our ward & community. In the church we believe each member has the opportunity to "take a pon us the name of christ" we become "disciples" acting in his name. I do my best ot live my life in a way that positivly reflects back on the church, and my savior Jesus Christ.

What is a ward/stake/branch?

Adam C. Price
A ward, or branch is a group of people within a community who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A ward is the best support group you will find. Many people refer to them as ward families due to the closes of relation that is developed. It creates strong bonds of love and service for one another. A ward is the best place to make a friend, or find a companion who share your beliefs. Some wards, like my YSA (young single adult) ward are very active and offer weekly opportunitys to get out and socialize with other YSA members in the area. A stake is simply a collection of wards. All things work better with proper organization, its similar to polotics: you are a member, the Mayor is the bishop of your ward, he is responsible for YOU and your spiritial well-being and that of the ward. the Senator is the stake president, he does the same job as the bishop but rather than being responsible for a ward he is responisble for the all the wards within the stake and is their representetive with the church leaders & general authorities. The general authorities of the church are the leaders of the chuch there is a President and counselors as well as groups of 12 & 70 who deliberate and orchestrate the direction and operations fo the the church through direct reveleation from God.
