Hi I'm Dwight Davis

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert to the church. I joined the church in 1959 while living in Michigan and going to school at the University of Michigan. While there I was in the U of M Men's Glee Club and was its president my senior year. I have been involved in music my entire life. Following a mission to Germany from 1960 to 1963 I returned to Michigan where I met and married my wife Margie. We had two children while living in Michigan and three more after moving to Arizona. My profession is the appraisal of commercial real estate. My two sons, son-in-law, and I formed an appraisal company and operate throughout the State of Arizona. My hobbies are woodworking and family history.

Why I am a Mormon

My introduction to the church began at an early age when our family traveled through Utah and attended a tour of Temple Square in 1947. I became very interested in the church in high school when I dated a Mormon girl for about a year and got to know her family. I observed this family very closely and tried to figure out what made them so close to each other. It was during this time that I became familiar with the teachings of the church. At first the primary point of interest was the Mormon doctrine of eternal family togetherness, particularly marriage for eternity. This was very interesting to me and I determined this kind of marriage was for me.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in accordance with principles my parents taught me by their example. They passed on many years ago. They weren't Mormons, but they espoused the same ideals that are taught by the Mormon Church. This made my conversion to the LDS (Mormon) Church easy. I decided long before baptism that I would be a faithful member. I'm sure our children picked up on this. All during their growing up years they simply knewthat I was a solid member, and this has helped them form their own allegiance to the Church. Lastly, I find it very comforting to have the structure of the Church in my life. Families are forever.
