Hi I'm Mallory Adams

I was raised in Kansas. I am a business school student, an artist, a missionary, a teacher, and I'm a mormon.

About Me


Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, but I was not born with a sure testimony of this church. That came with time. As I was growing up I knew our church was different than that of my friends'. But I did not think much of it. It was about the time I was 14 when I decided that I could no longer rely on the testimony of my parents. I was reading the scriptures and praying to know if this church was true. I remember distinctly the day I got my answer. It was June 11th, 2010 and my family and I were on a long road trip. I had just finished reading the entire Book of Mormon, and as we drove through the Rocky Mountains, I was filled with extremely reassurance and warmth. I came to know this feeling as the Holy Ghost. I had felt it before, but until that moment I didn't know what it was. That conformation was only the beginning. This gospel is pure love. Love of God. Love of each other. And love of yourself. I have been able to see people differently and it makes me love them more. It makes me so happy when you are in a place where everyone is trying to see each other as Christ sees them. And that is what this church does. Today's world has a clouded idea of what we should spend our time thinking and doing. With the gospel you can see clearly the importance of things beyond yourself. And THAT is what makes you happy. As a women in today's world I, like many others, feel insignificant and at times alone. All of those feelings go away when I think about the gospel. Insecurities don't have to weigh on your shoulders when you have the knowledge of the restored truth. Christ can help carry our burdens and with his love we never have to be alone. The feeling I get while I'm at church is the reason I go back every week. I get the opportunity to learn and grow every week. Being a Mormon, I have been able to change in ways I never thought possible. I love Jesus Christ and cannot wait to continue the rest of my life growing a testimony and sharing it with the world. I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am in a congregation of all young, single adults that attend my college. We have people from all over and it has been my pleasure to get to know them. As you can imagine we all have to contribute to ensure success. My job is to assign people to participate in special musical numbers to be performed in front of everyone. We have people perform every week and it is amazing to see them use their talents to help invite the spirit. The hymns of our church are inspired and it is amazing to see them touch the hearts of an entire congregation. Service is a bid part of our church. We are taught to love and serve all men. I have many opportunities to serve and I am grateful for the blessings service brings into my life. In church we are encouraged to learn and further our education. As a college student, I keep that in mind that when things get rough. I know that there is truth on this Earth, and some of those truths are the things we learn in school. I enjoy increasing my knowledge of the things of this world and it helps me draw closer to God because I know he created it all. Throughout my life I have found that if I write something down, I can reflect on it better, I will remember it more easily, and it makes the situations I face seem easier to conquer. One of coolest things our Church encourages is journaling. I record in my journal everyday and I love it. It allows me to write down my day and that helps me recognize the role The Lord plays in my life. I have been greatly blessed.
