Hi I'm Adam

I'm a college student. I love life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 21-year-old college student trying to find his way in the world. I love learning about different cultures and different ways that people live their unique lives. I believe that people are inherently awesome and that we can all benefit immensly from learning about people who are different than ourselves.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith is something that makes my life worth living. I find purpose, direction, and hope in the teachings of the church. It is so beautiful to me to know that my Heavenly Father wants me to succeed in my life and live with Him again after this life. Being a member of this church provides me with so many opportunities to serve other people and to feel that I am making a difference in other peoples' lives. Being a Mormon has brought me so much happiness!

How I live my faith

For me, living my faith means doing my absolute best to love God and to love everyone that I interact with. It means forgiving people when I feel that I've been wronged, serving people who need help, and realizing over and over again that I am no better than any of God's other children. I find that as I do my best to focus on what I can do to help other people out, I gain so much happiness in my life.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

The Atonement of Jesus Christ encompasses His suffering for all of humanity. It was a selfless act of love that made possible our future happiness through allowing us to overcome sin and death. One of my favorite teachings about the Atonement is the profound truth that, "All that is unfair about life can be made right through the Atonement of Jesus Christ." I find so much comfort, strength, and reassurance in my life from the knowledge that no matter what happens, everything will work out in the end if I trust in Christ's sacrifice and love for me. When I make a mistake, I know that I can be forgiven and relieved of the burden of guilt. When I feel sorrow and pain, I know that Christ has experienced my hardships and that I can find peace through His love. When I feel completely incapable of doing what lies ahead in life, I know that Christ will be with me the whole way through and that all things are possible through Him. The Atonement of Jesus Christ truly gives me the assurance that even though life is hard and unfair, it will all be ok in the end. The Atonement takes away all of my justification to be bitter, angry, annoyed, or without hope and affords me the opportunity to return good for evil. Show more Show less
