Hi I'm Nick Davey

My name is Nick, I live in England, work in a chocolate factory and am obsessed with Star Wars. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of one, an IT Manager and love movies and music of all kinds. I enjoy spending time with my family and find that my daughter has new ways of entertaining me every day. I'm also a convert to the church, which I joined March 13th 2004.

Why I am a Mormon

I was christened into the Church of England when I was a baby. While I wasn't a practising Anglican there was always something there and I have always believed that there was something more to life. Eventually I started to ask more questions about who I was and what my purpose on the Earth was. I had a friend who was a member of the Church although I didn't often speak to her about it because of negative perceptions about the Mormons. One night, when I had decided I needed to go to church for my answers I thought in my head "what would happen if I went to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints?" It was like someone turned on a light bulb as I knew with no doubt I had to go there, it's hard to explain but I knew where I needed to go. I went to Church the following week, met the Missionaries and was baptised 5 weeks later because everything I was taught and heard I knew was the truth and that I was guided by God to find it. As I go through all the ups and down that life inevitably throws at us, I have to come to learn that when I turn fully to Jesus Christ, when I ask Him to lift my burdens and walk beside me, I feel a joy and happiness that I have not experienced anywhere else. The peace that comes through a commitment to living the commandments and working in harmony with the true gospel has become a part of my life that I would never be without.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through my service to others. When I am given the opportunity I will talk honestly and openly about my faith. I strive to be helpful and courteous to others as well as fulfilling my church assignments. I make monthly visits to those who I am asked to look after, to make sure that all their needs, both physical and spiritual are taken care of. For me, my faith isn't just about attending church on a Sunday, it's about trying to live in the same way that the Saviour taught us to live. This is not always an easy thing to do, especially in today's world. However, when I am keeping the commandments and doing what I know I should be, I experience greater happiness.
