Hi I'm Doug

I grew up in Alberta. I joined the national police force and was posted throughout British Columbia. I am a Mormon.

About Me

 I am a retired police officer and am in my mid sixties. My wife and I have 4 children and 12 grandchildren. All live in other communities. I love to golf and meet people so I have a part time job as a marshall at a local golf club that is open year round. It is a well established facility and I am often able to meet people from all over the world. My wife and I ocassionally do some international travelling but spend most of our time travelling to visit family. I am not a physical fitness fanatic but I also enjoy keeping in reasonable shape by jogging and light wieght training.

Why I am a Mormon

 I was born a Mormon but my parents were not active in the church. Therefore, for the first 23 years of my life I only had minor involvement with the Mormon church. At age 23 I was on my own and had a very good paying job, a new car, and money in the bank. I had all that I wanted except something was missing in my life. I literally remember asking myself one day, "there must be more to life than this". From there I met an old friend and overtime became an active member of the Mormon faith. I found my purpose as I learned about my savior, Jesus Christ. I married a beautiful young lady 37 years ago and we have 4 children. How families tie into the great eternal plan is what brings purpose to my life.

How I live my faith

 I have tried throughout my church life to learn as much as I can. I am not perfect by any means but I feel that I am trying to do my best to follow the commandments of God and live by the covenants that I have made with Him. I try to be the best example to others and provide service as needed. I serve in my local church and work with others in our youth organization. As families are one of the main focuses of our church, I have worked to learn my roles and rsponsibilites as a husband and father.
