Hi I'm Davis Stanley

I was born in Pennsylvania and now live in Georgia and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father to three wonderful sons. I have been married to my beautiful wife for twenty years. I am a mechanic by trade and love to take things apart, which got me in trouble when I was young because it took me a long time to learn how to put them back together so they would work. I am now learning to play drums which means you can teach an old dog new tricks. I like muscle cars and the smell of burning rubber and the sound of a healthy engine. What I enjoy most is having fun and doing things with my family. I am a fortunate man.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was married to my wife, we were not attending any church. Shortly after moving to Georgia my wife made friends with the people who would watch our children while we were looking for work. My wife and her new friend would take the children to a local park. My wife was invited to an activity that was being put on at our friend’s church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My wife then told me that she was a member of The Church since she was sixteen. My wife asked me how I felt about church and I told her that it was probably time for me to start going back to a church and we could start looking for one. She took me to a Sacrament meeting and then I started to talk to the missionaries. When I talked to them I knew that something was different. I learned that it was the Holy Ghost telling me that what they were saying was true. The feeling was overwhelming. After I was baptized, my testimony would continue to grow and grow. I am so thankful that my Father in Heaven brought all those people into my life at the right time and place so I could know the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to set a good example. I have had many different responsibilities since becoming a member of the Church. I love to help people and share my talent for fixing things. Since I have three boys, I have spent a lot of time working with the youth in the Church. Going on campouts or week night activities are the best.
