Hi I'm Adam

I grew up in Wyoming. I'm a college student studying biology. I love sports, with tennis being my favorite. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was originally born in California, but moved to Wyoming when I was five. In high school, I played tennis and was involved with the Make-A-Wish foundation. Now, I am attending college, and am currently a molecular biology major, but also enjoy taking economic and history classes. I hope to one day be able to go to medical school and become a doctor (I am not sure what type yet, I am just focusing on getting in first!). I try to follow the example set by my father, but I know that I am very far away from that goal. Maybe one day.

Why I am a Mormon

The feelings I have felt, and continue to feel, constantly reaffirm my decision to stay apart of this church. It means everything to me. I decided to go on my mission when I realized that I had been asking more in my prayers than actually thanking God for. For the longest time, at college, I would pray and ask God for me to do well on this test, or this assignment, or this tennis game, etc. I then finally realized that I hadn't really thanked God for the things He had done for me in a long while, I was only just asking and asking. So, one night, I got on my knees and poured my heart out to God. I thanked him for everything, from my family and friends, to my tennis racquet and even pillow. I then finally asked him one more question, what would He have me do now? At that moment, an idea popped into my head. I then realized that God has given me so much in my life, and it was time to give myself to Him. I knew right then that I needed to go on a mission.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a two year mission. Being a witness of Christ, I attempt to show everyone God's love for them. We are all children of God, and His love for each and every one of us is so strong. Through service, teaching, and constant prayer, I hope to allow everyone to feel God's love for them. Knocking on doors, and trying to give someone a Book of Mormon is not a sales act, it is a desire for those individuals to come unto Christ, and partake of the pure happiness and joy that I have felt, and continue to feel as I live the Lord's gospel.
