Hi I'm Adam

I'm a college student studying Electrical Engineering. I love running, singing, and learning. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life is for learning, and I am all about developing new talents and learning new things. I have completed one year of college, studying Electrical Engineering. I love the outdoors, and going on runs in the mountains or adventuring through city streets. Indoors, you will find me studying up on programming for fun, or boring people with my love of math. I love to sing too, and have been involved in musical theater, and choir in high school and college. I am currently a missionary serving in the Thailand Bangkok Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ fills me, with happiness, with hope, and purpose. There is peace in Jesus Christ that you cannot find any other way. This is not some self-delusion that keeps me comfortable, but this is the church of a very real and very loving God. The guidance I receive from the gift of the Holy Ghost is not the result of my own thoughts, because as I have applied that guidance I am able to open myself to opportunities that I could not have foreseen with the knowledge I had. The gospel of Jesus Christ has shaped me into a far greater person that I could have ever been on my own: more patient, more cheerful, more outgoing, more courageous, and more happy. I love science, and I love to learn about and analyze the workings of society and the universe, and everything I learn points to a God in heaven that is all powerful, all knowing, and all loving. I have been around long enough to realize I have been blessed with a powerful intellect, and many talents. But all of these things do not make me happy. What makes me happy is when I can go out and do the will of my Heavenly Father, and I can be strengthened through Jesus Christ my savior. The gospel makes sense! It is not some arcane institution invented by man, but it is the source of the principles upon which this universe is founded. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am involved as a technology specialist in my congregation of college students, helping to provide multimedia resources for our teachers.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of ancient scripture translated by the prophet Joseph Smith. It is about real people: their lives, struggles, and triumphs. It teaches about Jesus Christ, having the words of many ancient prophets, like those contained in the Bible. When I read from it every day, I continue to find a wealth of knowledge, inspiration, and peace from God. I know it is true, and I know that is from God. Reading the Book of Mormon is how we can know of the truth of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, contained in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Show more Show less
