Hi I'm Adam

I was born in Canada, moved to Texas, and settled as an adult in Utah. You guessed it - I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I'm a husband and dad of four neat kids. I enjoy playing racquetball and doing lots of outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, backpacking, hunting, target shooting, skiing and snowshoeing.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormon, but I wanted to decide for myself when I was 18 years old what to believe. I believed that God would answer my prayers, so I took the question of what to believe to Him. I am grateful to Him for answering me in a way that I could know was from Him. I still believe that He answers prayers and hope to be humble enough to keep asking questions.

How I live my faith

I attend church on a weekly basis and volunteer my time to teach a sunday school class to the older youth in our congregation. I used to be on our ward activities committee, which organizes events for our congregation and broader community. One of my favorite activities was a block party that was not intended to be a 'preach the gospel' kind of event - just an opportunity for everyone in our neighborhood to get together and have some fun. It didn't matter whether anyone was a Mormon or not, we invited the whole neighborhood - and it was a blast!

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Adam
No, but we are all encouraged to participate in the process in addition to voting. It is a key belief that our Heavenly Father expects us to be involved politically and govern ourselves in accordance with the principles of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Adam
The Book of Mormon is a book of scripture written by Prophets who lived in the Western hemisphere between 600BC and 400AD. It is not a replacement for the Bible, but is a companion volume of scripture - testifying of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
