Hi I'm Adam

I'm a medical student. I love making my daughter laugh. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a new father of a beautiful baby girl and an osteopathic medical student. I grew up in Virginia, Florida, and California. I studied neuroscience at BYU and I love the brain! I served a mission in Colorado Springs. I love learning and spending time with my family. I love doing anything to help other people, which is the main reason I'm in medical school.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church since I was a child. My family are all members of the church and I have been taught the truths all my life. For a long time, I took my testimony for granted; I leaned on what my parents knew and believed, but didn't have their strength. When I left home, I realized just how easy it would be to stop going to church if I wanted. I figured that I could really do whatever I wanted. I learned then that I needed to stand on my own. I'm a Mormon because I prayed and received strength from the Lord; not physical strength, but strength in my testimony of the gospel. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer. I know that His true gospel is here on the earth for us today. He hears and answers our prayers. We are never alone because of the loving sacrifices He made on our behalf. I love the truth that has been restored. I love my Savior, my Brother.

How I live my faith

I have served in the church as a teacher of several Sunday School classes and I have loved being able to teach people about the gospel. I was a missionary for two years in Colorado Springs. I have also led the choir at church and found great joy in the music of the soul. I am currently the ward mission leader, so I coordinate with our full-time missionaries and help the members of the church in my area to share their testimonies of the gospel with their friends and those they love. Sharing the truths I hold dear brings me immeasurable happiness and strengthens my love for my Savior and my brothers and sisters all around me!
