Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in Monticello, Utah. I am a Bioengineering Major at the University of Utah and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in a small town so I was blessed with a close community who supported me in my multiple activities such as football, basketball, and golf. I'm a sophomore at the University of Utah studying Bioengineering. During the summer I worked as a Kids Camp Counselor and it was the best job I have ever had!

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to be born in this church but I experienced a true conversion to this church as I continued to read the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, prayer to our loving Heavenly Father, and serve others. As I continued to follow these simple steps and pray to know that the gospel taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true I received a strong feeling to confirm that this gospel was true. This strong feeling is described in the scriptures as the Holy Ghost manifesting the truth unto me. Everything in this gospel makes me the best me and allows me to fulfill my potential. A constant testimony that this church is true is the feeling I get when I serve others and feel the our Heavenly Father's love.

How I live my faith

All growing up I was lucky enough to be involved with my LDS church in all different aspects, especially in service. I loved serving other people and the feeling I would get after seeing their smiling face and feeling their gratitude! I now am a teacher in my student ward. I recently have accepted a call to serve as a full time LDS missionary in Puerto Rico.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon was written by ancient prophets of God, just as the Bible was. This record was passed down through history and each new prophet would record and write what God desired for them to write. Certain things such as Christ's appearance, teachings of Jesus Christ, and testimonies of the gospel are within the book. This record was then translated into the book we know and read now by the gift and power of God. Show more Show less
