Hi I'm Adam

I attended an early college IT program in high school, love Track and Field, live in Utah, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Since I was little, I have loved technology. The inner workings fascinated me. I took apart countless electronics and studied their parts. I was happy to make it into an early college high school IT program where I learned a few programming languages and many new computer skills. I went to Seminary and Track at my local high school. My Seminary teachers were amazing. I liked to start the day off with prayer and friends who share my same values and goals. Track was hard work and I learned that I could go past what I thought my limits were. I could push past the hurt and fatigue when I had a reason. I was able to medal in State and have lettered in all three high school years. Even better than the medals were the friendships I made while gathering others in prayer at meets and being truly happy for their successes, even when it meant they beat my time.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Mormon, with "goodly parents". I stay a member of this church because I know it is the truth and I trust God to lead me. It brings joy into my life. I have decided to serve a full time mission because I want others to have the opportunity to experience the peace, joy, and happiness that comes with following Him.

How I live my faith

Today I heard a talk by President Spencer W. Kimball called The Davids and the Goliaths. “Be glad there are big hurdles in life and rejoice, too, that they are higher than most people care to surmount. Be happy they are numerous. It is those hurdles that give you a chance to work your way to the front of the crowd. They are your friends. For if it were not for high hurdles, many men might be able to outrun you.” As a hurdle runner, this resonated with me. I have tried to include my faith daily instead of just on Sundays. I believe that others are blessed when we live our faith, when we work hard for others, and when we are not afraid to talk about those things that we know. When we have challenges we can be grateful for them because these are the things that can set our foundation in our faith.
