Hi I'm Doug

I am a scientist creating inventions that will help doctors diagnose diseases. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a scientist, I love researching and coming up with new ways of diagnosing diseases. I've always held scientists in high regard ever since I was young. Both of my parents are excellent artists. I grew up having a hard time in science classes, only to find out that my genetic propensity to be artistic and creative has allowed me to succeed in the actual practice of science. I am married to the most beautiful woman and we have one son so far. I believe that life is about love and good stewardship.

Why I am a Mormon

As a scientist, I believe that God understands my need to see evidence before acknowledging that something is true. He has blessed me to be able to receive powerful answers to prayers. The culmination of all of the small and great miracles over my 36 years on this earth as a practicing mormon has led me to judge that my religion is a conduit to God's love and blessings. I would be a fool to deny the witnessed miracles and divine blessings that put all other doubts about the validity of the church to rest.

How I live my faith

My favorite way to participate in my church is through service opportunities. I learn all that I can about home improvement so that I can help others in my community. A few weeks ago, we helped an elderly couple build a deck in their back yard. I was sore, but it felt good to help out.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

The temple is where I go to make promises to God. Many people that I know are a little offended that they cannot go inside the temple if they are not a member of the church. To this I say, " You are invited". You just have to become a member. I also ask them to think about the ancient temples in the bible. Do you think that just anyone could walk into Solomon's temple? We invite everyone to come to the temple. Show more Show less
