Hi I'm Adam Allred

I'm a small town pizza deliverer, lavender farmer, & a garage band rockstar. But most importantly I'm a big brother. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Adam, I'm 18 years old and I'm from a small town in central Utah. I recently graduated High School this last year, and I'm now serving a fulltime mission in Southern Arizona. I've always had a motto of making the most of everyday! My hobbies include playing music with my rock band, wildlife photography, playing football, singing in the choir, reading, enjoying outdoor activities, working as a pizza deliverer, and hanging out with my friends and family! I'm the oldest in a family of 8 children: 5 boys and 3 girls, and a whole lot of fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because the more that I learn and understand about the Saviors teachings, the gospel, the more it makes sense to me and I feel more confident in the future. We all have a purpose in life, and Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us. I'm a Mormon because the church has brought my family to where we are now and the church brings people together as a family. Ever since I was young, I've always known and felt that this church is true. An understanding came overtime as I went through experience, but the feeling was always there. From sitting in sacrament meeting with my toy animals to being set apart as a missionary, I've always known this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by helping others find the light inside of them. There is so much to be thankful and happy about in life! I always look for a way to put a smile on someones face, because when other people are happy then I feel happy! I always look for an opportunity to make a friends and I never regret meeting someone new. Right now I'm serving a mission in Southern Arizona. Serving a mission has been an amazing experience, everyday I go out and find different ways to share the gospel with people. I get the chance to meet new people everyday and share my testimony of the gospel. Serving a mission has also been a challenge for me. Being away from my family and friends and not having time to do the things I enjoy doing can be really hard, but when I have a good attitude and go forward with a smile then it is quite enjoyable.

What is faith?

"Faith is to hope for things which are not seen which are true." - Alma 32:21 Faith is like a seed, the more light and hope we give the seed of our testimony to grow, the stronger the foundation of the roots of our faith becomes. Show more Show less
