Hi I'm Adam Davis

I play guitar. I'm a biker. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play guitar. I would carry my guitar around with me wherever I went so that I could play whenever I had a moment to play a riff or some chords for fun. I really enjoyed being able to teach others how to play guitar too and it was great to have the wonderful gift of music spread through what I knew about playing. I also love the feeling that being on a motorcycle brings. The bike doesn't even have to be moving. Something aobut the feel of the handlebars, and the bike under me just makes me excited. While I enjoy just sitting on a bike, nothing compares to the feeling that being on a bike while cruising up a winding canyon road with nature blurring by on either side of me brings. I truly love the freedom of a motorcycle. I love it to the point that I rode year-round in Utah, even through the biting chill that winter brings here. I love being able to carry my guitar around with me on the bike in the summer and then pull over whenever I want and play some songs while sitting on the bike, enjoying the sun on my back and the warm wind in my hair. It is such a great time to enjoy all of the beauty that is around us that I often take for granted when life gets busy.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have seen so many things in my life that testify of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I've seen what a life filled with things contrary to the teachings of Christ bring personally, and I know that this is where we are all meant to be. I have seen people healed of cancer and many other illnesses because of their faith in the power of Jesus Christ and the blessings that they have been given from members of this church. One of the greatest things that testifies to the fact that Jesus Christ is real and that he looks after us happened in October of 2011. I crashed while riding on my motorcycle trying to avoid a car that had pulled out in front of me while I was going 50 MPH. I probably should have had serious injuries, but I walked away with a fractured wrist and a seperated shoulder. I know that this was because I had a purpose to fulfill as a missionary of the Lord for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I had just made the decision to serve prior to the crash by a couple weeks and had received my call. I am so grateful for his protection and support as I follow his example and work to bring others to know of the truthfullness of this church and its messages.

How I live my faith

I've always enjoyed the ward that I attend at home. Everyone there is so loving that the love just becomes contagious. It is impossible to not share that love with everyone that we come in contact with. I love seeing new people who attend our church because it gives me a chance to spread that love further to those who wouldn't normally see my love for them. I have been able to express my love through serving as a teacher of my faith for people my own age in college. I am so grateful for the many opportunities that I have to serve those around me so that they can begin to see a portion of the love that our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ have for them.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Adam Davis
We do not worship Joseph Smith, but we do honor him. We respect him, we revere him, we rejoice in the work that he performed in restoring the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this earth. We worship God, our Eternal Father, and our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. We recognize the role that Joseph Smith played as a true prophet of theirs and the good that he brought back into this world.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Adam Davis
As a missionary, I am excited to share the joy that I have received in my own life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. While we teach those we meet about our religion and the things that we believe, that isn't the only reason we serve missions. I am serving a mission to help the people I meet; I want to serve them and share the love that Jesus Christ has for them. I want them to experience the fullest joy possible in their lives, and the comfort and peace that our religion brings to the lives of all of God's children. Show more Show less
