Hi I'm Bryant Davis

I am currently serving a mission for the LDS church. I moved all around Southern California but consider Los Alamitos my home.

About Me

My name is Elder Davis and I am a missionary for the LDS church, serving in the Fort Collins, Colorado mission. Before entering the mission field I enjoyed skateboarding, singing, listening to a bunch of different types of music, going to the movies, playing with my friends various pets (I love animals) and especially hanging out with my friends whenever I could. I went to college for a bit, while working as a delivery driver for Pizza Hut, which I thoroughly enjoyed! Now as a missionary, I love to play basketball, meet new people and serve others in any way I can. I have found immense happiness in simply loving God and His children, and showing it by sharing his Gospel! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of I know that the LDS church is Christ's restored church on this earth. I came to this knowledge after going through life feeling alone and being sick of it. During a church youth summer camp, I knelt down and prayed to know if there was a God and if Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I received my answer almost immediately and felt an undeniable feeling of confirmation from the Holy Ghost. Most importantly, I am an active member thanks to the great examples I've seen in my family, friends, church leaders and ward family. I continue to follow the Gospel to show my love and gratitude for thy Father and the Son, and because I've seen the blessings and happiness that come from it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the love of God, through the Gospel, with all those I come in contact with as a full-time missionary and by trying to make others happy! I have found true and lasting joy by living the commandments of God and in serving others. I try to do my best by following both the commandments and mission rules, but do slip up sometimes. However, knowing my Savior went through the Atonement for my sake, among others, gives me the strength to humble myself and seek to align my will with His.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Bryant Davis
As it says in 3 Nephi 27:19 "no unclean thing can enter into his kingdom," meaning those who haven't repented of their sins can't live with God in Heaven. Christ made this possible by suffering for all of our sins, physical and emotional pains in the Garden of Gethsemane and ultimately dying on the cross in Calvary. Without the Atonement, we wouldn't even have the chance to improve ourselves by repenting of our sins, in an effort to become like God. "For it is expedient that an atonement should be made; for according to the great plan of the Eternal God there must be an atonement made, or else all mankind must unavoidably perish."

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Bryant Davis
God is our loving Father in heaven who knows all things and can do all things. Just like us, he has a body of flesh and bones. His is perfect, without flaw or weakness. We are created to look just like him. We are literally His sons and daughters (Romans 8:16-17). He knows each of us personally and loves each one of us perfectly. He wants us to become as he is and return to live with Him with our families. He's given us a plan with tools and resources to achieve this. Some of those are the commandments, His Church, the scriptures and most important, His son, Jesus Christ. He wants us to follow his instructions and the example of Christ, so we can have lasting joy and happiness in this life and in the next. Show more Show less
