Hi I'm Doug

I'm an Audiologist, a Sports Nut, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I have 3 children. I am an Audiologist. I am the 6th child in a family of 7. I consider one of my hobbies to be sports - playing, watching, reading about, etc. I also enjoy many types of music. I play the piano and the guitar. I served an LDS Church Mission in Madrid, Spain from 1997-1999.

Why I am a Mormon

I have studied the teachings, scriptures, and history of this church and have received a personal witness that the path I have chosen religiously is correct. There are many trials and issues in the world that I am better able to understand and deal with because of the perspective I have gained from studying the Gospel.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the LDS church has given me many opportunities to grow as a person through service. I have had opportunities to work with the youth and Scouting Program. Currently I help with many behind the scenes things that help the local unit go, including finances and record keeping. I also have a few families in the area that I visit on a monthly basis to share a message and make sure all of their temporal and spiritual needs are being met.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a record of a people that lived on the American Continent. They first arrived about 600 BC, with the book covering roughly 1000 years. The people were led by spiritual leaders who communed with God on a regular basis. In fact, one of the most amazing parts of the book is when Jesus Christ himself visits the people on the American continent and establishes His church like he did in Jerusalem. "And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd." (John 10:16) It is certainly not meant to replace the Bible, but to off additional testimony to the Bible. As the Apostle Paul says in 2 Corinthians 13:1, "In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established." Show more Show less
