Hi I'm Douglas

I am a business analyst at the company I work for, an avid reader, a future father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a student, my wife and I are constantly finding ways to have a fun and enjoyable life for less. I love to play basketball, and be outdoors. I have been accepted to a business internship in China for this fall semester, we are very excited to go.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Lord would have me be. Even though we are called "Mormons" often, we are striving to follow the Lord Jesus Christ. I have felt the Holy Spirit teach my soul that I am doing the right thing. I feel peace and joy knowing who I am, where I have come from before I was born, and where I can be going.

How I live my faith

I strive to reach out to those who seem discouraged and downtrodden. I am a counselor for the Bishop (leader) of the congregation I attend. It is a student ward (congregation) and I help them with their spiritual and temporal needs.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Yes. The power and authority of God to seal families together forever is upon the earth again today. It was taken from the earth when the apostles were rejected and killed after the ascension of Jesus Christ into heaven. God in His loving kindness has again reached out to His children upon this earth and has restored that power to the earth to living prophets and apostles. I am feel blessed and eternal joy to be married to my wife and know that we can be together forever as a family. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

We believe in God our Eternal Father. He is literally the Father of our spirits. He loves us and wants us to return to live with Him. He has a perfected and resurrected body of flesh and bones. His Son is Jesus Christ. They with the Holy Ghost make the Godhead. Show more Show less
