Hi I'm Adam

I'm a drummer. I love trying new foods. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Central Florida, and have been in too many hurricanes and tropical storms to count. I am a pre-med student at Brigham Young University. I love creating, playing, and listening to music. I get sunburned easily, but I still love to go to the beach as much as I can!

Why I am a Mormon

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has brought greater joy into my life than I thought could be possible. Through this Church, I have come to know Heavenly Father's plan for all of us that live, have lived, or are yet to live on earth. Through reading the Book of Mormon and praying to Heavenly Father, I have a solemn testimony that this is Jesus Christ's church. I acknowledge that I make mistakes on a regular basis. While this is frustrating to me, my faith has given me the knowledge that all of my sins and mistakes can be forgiven through Christ's Atonement. Through the grace and merits of the Savior, and through putting my trust in Him, I have felt heavy burdens become light and have endured through challenges that I would have not been able to endure without Him. Jesus Christ lives, and I know this to be true. I am a Mormon because I have felt the Holy Spirit witness to me that what I've learned and what I know is true.

How I live my faith

I try to seize every opportunity to serve those around me. Whether organized or spontaneous, service within my community and church helps me create strong relationships and develop Christ-like love for others. From September 2017 to September 2019, I will serve as a missionary in the Barcelona, Spain area. As a missionary, I will be able to render meaningful service to those in that area, and have the opportunity to invite them to come unto Jesus Christ and help them receive the blessings that await ALL of God's children.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Adam
One of the best ways to increase our faith in Christ is to learn of Him. Reading about Jesus Christ in the Bible and in the Book of Mormon help us to come closer to Him and make our relationship more personal with the Savior. If all we have is a desire to believe in Christ, our faith in Him will grow tremendously if we just stick with it. Also, through utilizing His atonement (trusting in His grace and forsaking and repenting of our sins), we can come to know Him and trust Him on a more personal level, which will allow us to have increased faith in Him.
