Hi I'm Davin

I'm a husband and father. I'm a trained academic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah (USA); served my Mormon full-time mission in Austria, and now live in Georgia (USA) with my wife and children. I am a career analyst and writer by trade. I earned my B.A. in Near Eastern Studies, and my M.A. in Hebrew Bible/Biblical Studies. My favorite hobby is to study and write about ancients texts (including scriptures), languages, and history. I also have a passion for teaching and traveling around the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my conviction in Jesus Christ as the universal Savior, the power of his atoning sacrifice to free me from sin, and the veracity of the Book of Mormon as the word of God. I am a Mormon because of the simplicity of the plan of salvation, which provides me with purpose and exact direction in this life. I am a Mormon because of the eternal purpose of temple work and the peaceful joy that stems from rendering selfless service within the lay clergy structure of the Mormon church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to study the scriptures each day, engaging in sincere prayer both morning and night, spending quality time with my family, practicing love and patience with my children and co-workers, seeking opportunities to serve, and sharing the truths of the Mormon faith with others.
