Hi I'm Adam Blackley

Im a fisherman and wanna-be ski bum, and Im a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors! I have been camping, fishing, and hunting in this beautiful state my entire life. Being outside really helps me appreciate the wonderful world God has created for us. My all time favorite thing to do outdoors is be on the water. Whether it be fishing, swimming, kayaking, or canoeing, i love floating. Fishing is truely my passion other than the gospel. Other than being outdoors, i enjoy science. Specifically i like studying marine biology. I love marine biology and really biology in general because it shows me how intricit this world really is. I love my family even more than i love the outdoors haha. No matter what happens, i will love my family until the end. i love being able to play sports with my siblings and parents nearly every day. But what i love more, is our sense of humor. No matter what happens, one of us can crack a joke and cheer everyone up, which is often needed in our home full of teenagers. I love my family, Alaska, and laughing.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because i know this gospel is true. I know that God loves me and every single one of us who lives, has ever lived, and will ever live. His love is infinite and pure. He has laid out a way for us to live with him in heaven, and i intend to do everything i can to follow his plan. No matter what happens in my life i think of why i attend church and i always remember the words "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son." I will forever dedicate my life to the gospel of Jesus Christ, because he has saved my from my sins. I am a mormon because Gods plan is perfect and Jesus Christ is my savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as best as i can! The beauty of the gospel of Jesus Christ is that if i do my very best, God and Christ will do the rest. I go to my ward activities to help myself gain a better testimony by being surrounded by spiritual giants. I attend church every sunday, not because i have to, but because i get to. One of my church leaders once said to me, "Church isnt for righteous people to show off, but rather its more of a spitual hospital." I think about that a lot and i think church is really for all the spiritually sick and afflicted to come and receive aid so that they can carry the burdens of everyday life. I go to church so that Jesus Christ can help me in my life so that i may live with God in Heaven.
