Hi I'm Doug

I was born in Germany but am Canadian. I came to Canada when I was 6 months old. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a software developer team leader. I like to program but don't get to do as much of that as I would like. I am a father of 4 and grandfather of 1 awesome granddaughter. I own a Yamaha touring bike and like to ride it. I have served a mission for the church and my wife and I hope to be able to serve together in a few years.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was growing up I always believed that there had to be something greater than man. I figured the universe didn't just create itself. I was mostly happy with my life but then I met some Mormons and started having discussions. After a while I read about Joseph Smith and his vision of Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and chills just ran up and down my spine. It thrilled me to think that God still talked to man. I knew it was true... Just knew it in the core of my being. As I studied more and socialized with "The Mormons" I knew I wanted to be like them and have more spiritual experiences so I joined the church.

How I live my faith

Now I serve in the church. The church gives us the opportunity to serve in many ways, from teaching children and adults to ministering to the spiritual needs of members and friends. I believe in being honest and treating others well. Every day I try to be a better person than I was before.
