Hi I'm Kendall Adams

I am was born and raised in Farmington, Utah. I am a gymnast and currently a student athlete at BYU provo. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been involved in gymnastics my whole life and am currently on the BYU gymnastics team. On top of my training I spend a good majority of my time studying for classes, I am undecided on a major, but may go into engineering. I am a huge country girl and by this I mean I love country music, rodeos, camping, fishing, shooting, hiking, boating basically everything that allows me to be outside having fun! I love being with my friends and family, and capture the moments of my life by keeping journals.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it has been the one thing that has brought me and continues to bring me happiness and peace. Life can get pretty chaotic and stressful, especially when big decisions are placed before me, but with this gospel I have ALWAYS been able to face my obstacles with hope and faith that I will come out stronger and happier than I was before. I know God has a plan for me and I never truly feel alone because I know that my Savior will never ever leave my side despite my circumstances or mistakes. This life is a chance for me to experience growth, heartache, love, laughter, sorrow, and success, but the beauty of it is I will never have to do it all alone. I have a Savior that will be with me every step of the way and I have experienced this first hand. I know that at the end of the day my Father in Heaven and Savior Jesus Christ love me more than I could ever comprehend. I find joy in knowing that I have a purpose here on earth and something to return to when I die. I love knowing that all good comes from God and my sins and sorrows can be washed away because of the atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that because God loves me he has placed me in a family with the people I love most and will be able to live with after this life and throughout the eternities. He has placed a living prophet here on this earth to guide and direct His church and as I have come to follow their teachings I am able to experience true joy and happiness. I love this gospel. I love my Heavenly Father and His son Jesus Christ. I know this church is true and there will always be blessings and happiness as I continue to live by its teachings. This gospel has made me who I am today and I am grateful for all it does and continues to do for me as well as my family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending church every Sunday and participating in class discussions, visiting the temple a few times a month, visit teaching those in my ward, studying my scriptures, praying and being open to discussions of my faith. I love service and am always looking for ways to serve those I am associated with. I am constantly striving to live as an example of what I believe in.
