Hi I'm Jordan Davis

I'm from Safford, Arizona. Was born into the church then strayed away for five years, came back truly converted at the age of 18.

About Me

I am 20, the middle of three children. Currently Im the only active member in my household, I've been a member since I was born but didn't truly convert until I was 18. The atonement of the savior turned my life around completely! It's absolutely amazing what the lord can do to your life if you give him the opportunity and open your heart and soul to him.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born in the church I never went for myself, it was just to keep my grandma happy. One thing I did know though, is that the church was true! Other than that the way I chose to live my life at the time wasn't in accordance to the teachings of the gospel. In turn made me feel bad about myself because I was knowingly accepting the priesthood and temple recommends unworthily. Coming to an end of my freshman year I broke away from the church after letting my guilt grow and grow, I had been thinking about going away from the church for awhile but didn't know how to tell my grandma. My breaking point was the night I heard about the loss of my dad. He was arrested on a business trip, my dad was my best friend! My protector! My idol! So I began to pray more than I ever have in my life to get him back. It sent me into a deep depression right away, I became angry/annoyed at anybody and everybody around me. I didn't want to talk, didn't want to have fun, lost my hope and faith in Heavenly father cause I felt like he never heard me. But after 5 years of living in a DARK hopeless cave, the Lord pulled me out after an incredible experience with the power of prayer in a "I don't know what else to do" moment. After I received that blessing I couldn't just say Thank you Lord and just keep living the way I was living, so I went outside and wrote my first personal prayer to him in a long time and I just reflected on those 5 years of my life in tears as I wrote. When I wrote I made a promise to him that I'd go back to Church every Sunday and I'd work on fixing things I'd done wrong in my life, and that's exactly what I did! Week after week I felt the healing and enabling power of the atonement, and I know without a doubt that LIFE BEGINS ONCE JESUS IS THE REASON YOU LIVE IT!(:

How I live my faith

I do my best to strengthen my faith and testimony by helping my friends grow in the gospel. Not only am I being a help to them, but they help me in many ways especially in exercising my knowledge. I know my mission will do the same! In times of trial I look towards my savior through prayer, and I try to be thankful for my trials because there is always a time for growth in those situations.
