Hi I'm Adam Kirk

I write software for the Mac and iPhone. Calvetica, Day One, Firehose. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated from the University of Utah and now spend my time building awesome Mac/iOS apps and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I know the Book of Mormon is what it says it is in the introduction. If the Book of Mormon is true, that means Joseph Smith is a true prophet, because he could not have obtained it otherwise. If Joseph Smith is a true prophet, that means that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the Lord's restored church led by a living prophet guided by revelation. If the LDS church is true, that means that Jesus Christ exists, He lived, He suffered for the sins of all mankind, He died and was the first be resurrected. He was the comprehensive perfect example of what it means to exist as a potential divine being. We learn, we grow, we improve. We die, we rise again, we become perfect over time. I'm a Mormon because I know it is the purest source of religious truth, it is the best place for me to learn how to become like Jesus Christ and the more I learn about how to become like the Savior, the more I do become like Him. The more I become like Him, the happier I am, the happier the people around me are, and as Joseph Smith said, "Happiness is the object and design of our existence."

How I live my faith

I am dedicated to making the world a better place. I know that feeling, thinking and acting like the Savior is the only way to lasting happiness. He says, "I am the way." and I know that means, "Do as I do, and be happy as I am." I go to church, pray, read about the Savior all to learn about how He thinks, feels and acts so that I can follow His example. When I am as the Savior is, I feel the inspiration of the spirit as He does, which guides me to know how to best help myself, my family and my fellow man. It guides me on how to best make the world a better place, how to best help people, how to best improve the lives of those around me.
