Hi I'm Doug

I have raised 5 daughters and have owned my own business for the past 35 years, causing me to lose most of my hair. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For over 30 years, I have run my own business. I married my high school sweetheart and have 5 married daughters. I love being a grandpa to my 13 grandchildren. I have loved raising and showing horses. I also love all sports, but especially watching my Diamondbacks.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in Mesa, Arizona, surrounded by members of the church. It was easy being Mormon. I then went on a mission to Boston, Massachusetts completely unprepared. For the first part of my mission I felt like a hypocrite. One night I decided to find out for myself if this church was true. I received an answer that I can never deny. I made promises to my Father in heaven that night that I will never back down on. Since then, I have seen the happiness that the Gospel brings. I have seen how it helps families. I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true.

How I live my faith

I live my religion by trying to be an honest business man in all of my dealings. I try to be an example and share the gospel whenever I can. I currently serve as a counsellor in a single adult ward. I love working with them, and trying to help them progress in life.
