Hi I'm Zachary Davis

I am Mormon and moved every two to three years of my life. I am currently on a mission and it is a blast!!!

About Me

I joined the church when I was 17 and have been a member for about 2 years. I have never been good with word and can be a little thick headed at times, but I do the best I can. Some things I like to do are sports with friends/family, video games, service, go to church, read, and I love the outdoors. I am very patient and once I set my mind to something I usually don't stop until whatever it is finished. I also have my humorous moments and I do my best to listen and understand others so I may be of better use when needed and show that I care about those that am listening to. But what I find to be of most value to me even before joining the church has been my family. I have always wanted to make them happy and it is still one of my major goals today. Ever since I can remember I've wondered how can I make my family happy and I have tried many things but a lot of them I felt were vain. But ever since I became a member of this church my eyes have been opened to the many blessing the Lord has given me and how he has strengthened my family even though they may not know it and I will give everything to Heavenly Father for all to receive this happiness I have come to know and love!

Why I am a Mormon

Before I came to know of the book of Mormon I traveled a lot through out my travels my mother and I tried a few different christian religions, first being catholic, then Methodist, Lutheran, and last Baptist. Some were nice and some were not, but after trying them I still felt something missing. One day my mother's friend sends some Mormon missionaries to come meet us at our home. It took me a little longer than my mother to warm up to the missionaries but eventually I came down to listen to what they had to say and they asked me if I would try reading the book of Mormon. I said I would give it a shot and after reading the book of Mormon for a while the feeling of something missing dissipated. As I grew with knowledge of the Book of Mormon I was able to finally testify of it's truth and later on got baptized at the same time as my mother.

How I live my faith

I did a lot of home teaching with ward members before going on my mission. I also did a lot of service that was asked of me and do the best I can to live by heavenly fathers guidelines, also I always had the privilege to bless the sacrament at church. It was and still is great to be of service to others and to Heavenly Father. If we truly believe God to be our loving Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to be our savior, shouldn't we do everything they have commanded of us to the best we know how? I know for a surety that by following the example of our savior, although we may fall short at times, we are not alone in our trails for he has suffered all thing and knows our pains, if we repent with a true desire to become like Christ and will endure to the end of our days with faith in Him, if we do all that was commanded of us and give everything to our Heavenly Father to follow his commandments, I testify that He will bless all his children for all are able to receive all his blessings, beyond anything we could comprehend and that we will be able to live with him again for all eternity! I leave this testimony with all in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Zachary Davis
Of course we believe the Bible to be the word of God! I personally love the bible and all that it holds. My favorite in the Bible is the record of Samson and how he was given such tremendous strength from god, how he was able to fend off armies, and him fulfilling what god intended of him.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Zachary Davis
To be honest I could give many reasons why I believe that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true but there is only one way to truly "know the truth of all things" for ones self is through the Holy Ghost which is how our Heavenly Father speaks to us. The Holy Ghost testifies of truth as we pray sincerely and with real intent to act upon the answer that we get, through going to church, and reading the bible and the Book of Mormon. The answers we receive from Heavenly Father depends on the person but most of the time it usually is a feeling of peace, that we are in the right place and doing what is right. It is easily missed when we don't truly take the time to listen, for the Holy Ghost does not speak with a loud voice but with a "still, small voice"(feeling of peace) that pierces our hearts.
