Hi I'm Glen Davis

I'm just a regular guy but my wife and kids say I'm special. I've 2 daughters & 2 sons who are awesome and make life really fun.

About Me

I'm a 44 year old father of four children ages 10, 13, 16 and 18. My wife and I are about to celebrate our 20th anniversary. My favorite pastime is just about anything with my family. Whether it is pulling weeds at the church farm or hiking in the mountains...if we are doing it together, it's fun. Camping in the surrounding mountains is a favorite family activity. During the school year we spend a lot of time attending kids school events, particularly in support of their musical endeavors. I work at a manufacturing company as a supplier quality engineer. Solving problems with parts is usually what I'm about, but what I really enjoy is the associations with supplier personnel around the country and around the globe. I've learned that people have much in common, regardless of where they live. Whether they are German, Polish, Chinese or American, people have the same basic needs, love their families and want what is best for them. Spending time with them and getting to know them on a personal level has helped me have a more healthy attititude about my brothers and sisters that just happen to have been born to parents in another part of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know it is true. My parents began introducing me to the gospel of Jesus Christ when I was very young. I don't remember any time when I didn't believe it was true. Now that I am older, I can look back on my life and pick out key moments when the Holy Ghost has witnessed to me of the truthfulness and reality of the gospel of Jesus Christ in unmistakable and powerful ways. But the constant, small assurances and inspirations that happen most every day are what keep me strong in the faith. It's not always easy or simple trying to be a disciple of Christ, so the everyday simple assurances are important to me. The blessings of the gospel that I and my family enjoy are now such an integral part of my life that I can scarcely imagine living life a different way.

How I live my faith

I try to be honest, hardworking and supportive in my daily interactions with other people. I try to be a good husband to my wife and good parent to my children. In the church organization, one of my roles is to make sure that people in my ward have fellowship they want and help when they need it. I believe taking good care of each other is important in trying to lead a Christlike life.
