Hi I'm Adam Dowd

I am a father of three and a small business owner that lives in Henderson NV. I am involved with the scouting program.

About Me

I am a father of three. I served a LDS mission in California and went to college in Utah graduating in the early 90's. I own a small business here in the Las Vegas area for more than 20 years. I love to travel and see the outdoors. Some of the things I like to do are camping, fishing & hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was born and raised in the Mormon faith my father was not so I was exposed to other religious beliefs throughout my life. I visited many churches keeping an open mind about what they where saying. Most of the doctrine in the other churches were similar to what I believed to be true. The one thing that I was looking for was answers to the origins of other religions. It seemed to me that history has shown how Christian beliefs has evolved over the centuries but theology seemed to ignore the evidence. It was the restoration, the appearance of God and Christ to Joseph Smith, that felt correct to me. Because I could recognize that there had been changes in Christianity over time it seemed that it could only be restored by Christ Himself. This was the beginning of my serious study into the Mormon church and it all fit together. There seemed to not be a question that I had that could't be answered and the more I learned the more I felt the fruits of the spirit that I read about in Galatians 5:22 and I was looking for those feelings. That is why I know that this is the Church of Christ. It speaks to me logically and spiritually leaving me no doubt of its authenticity.

How I live my faith

I have been serving in my church with the youth for more than 20 years helping them develop leadership and life skills primarily through the scouting program. I teach wilderness survival, emergency preparedness, finance, communication & business skills to name a few. I have worked with children and adults alike and both women and men.
