Hi I'm Adam Williford

I grew up in Snow Hill, North Carolina, I enjoy playing most any sport and being outside. I'm studying geology at BYU-Idaho.

About Me

I was baptized into the church in December of 2002 and I married my best friend in 2012. I served a 2 year mission for the LDS church in the Salt Lake City: South Mission from August 2007- August 2009. I served in many different assignments there (Tongan, Korean, Laotian, Thai, and English.) I currently live in Idaho with my wife while I am in school to become a geologist. I love playing most any sport and I love being outdoors. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and I love the Bible and the Book of Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be baptized when I was 17 because I wanted more than anything to be with my family forever. I wanted more than anything to be married in the temple to wife (one day), not just until death do us part but forever. I chose to be baptized because I recognize that Jesus Christ setup up his church, the OF Jesus Christ when he was alive and after his death it was lost on the earth, and today He has restored it as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I chose to be baptized because the world again is being led by a prophet just like in the Old Testament, New Testament, and the Book of Mormon (another testament of Jesus Christ). I chose to be baptized because I love The Lord.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the Elder's Quorum President (I help organize the men in our ward and conduct the meetings for the men every Sunday) in our ward in Rexburg, Idaho and my wife is a ward missionary (she helps answer questions that visitors each Sunday may have about the gospel and our church). We love our callings. We help setup service projects different weeks so that we, and many of our friends in the ward, can help our community grow. We also attend the temple 2-4 times per month so that we can do work for our ancestors and the ancestors of others, the wonderful feeling I get there is beyond compare to any other place I can be.
