Hi I'm Douglas

I grew up in Boise, ID andI'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Boise Idaho. I served a two year mission for the church. I love to snow skiing, rafting, go hiking the moutains, off-roading, landscaping for work, kicking it with friends and playing video games. I also love diesel trucks. I love the outdoors. I plan on doing landscaping for the rest of my life. I'm getting ready to go back to school for Horticultur at BYU-I.

Why I am a Mormon

Well i'm a mormon because I know that it is Christ true church. I had alot of questions my whole life and grew up being mormon. Once I needed to find the answers for my self I started to look everywhere. I started to read the Bible and The Book of Mormon. I realized how they went along together and my testimony has grown from that time. Very simply I came to know that Jesus Christ was the Savior and that He is always the same so that meant He would always have Prophets on the earth. Joseph Smith was a prophet and I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet that leads and guides us closer to Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by helping people come closer to Christ. My whole day and week is planned on service to others so that they can feel the love I have for them but more importantly the love Christ has for them. I gave up two years of my life to come out on a mission. I am not paid to go knock on peoples doors to share a wonderful message of Christ. I do it because I love them and I have been asked by a prophet of the Lord to come and serve.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

The simple way to put it is we are not required to serve missions. We know Christ love and have been asked by Him to help people come closer to Him. Show more Show less
