Hi I'm Doug

I have directed tens of thousands of young single adults in various choirs in Utah and California, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a Mormon all my life. I grew up in Idaho, served a mission in California, graduated from College with a degree in choral music, and began teaching music in a high school in California. I left public education and began teaching in the Church Education System of the Mormon Church where I continued to direct choirs in California and Utah. My wife an I have six children and 11 grandchildren. I love to explore the mountains of Utah on my ATV while enjoying some of God's greatest creations. I enjoy meeting people and getting to know them. I love life, my family, and my God.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a witness of the Spirit that everything the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon) believes and teaches is true. I have a witness that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ and that He atoned for my sins and the sins of ever person who has ever lived or will ever live on this earth. I know that God has called prophets on the earth today just as He did in ancient times. He has revealed sacred truths through the Prophet Joseph Smith that are found in the Book of Mormon. I am who I am because of my faith and my belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ that is found in the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a Mormon because I know that I will be with my family forever because of the sealing power that is found withing the ordinances that are available within the Church. I am a Mormon because the teachings of the Church offers the purest lifestyle that can be found on the earth. I am a Mormon becase I beleive.

How I live my faith

One of the ways that I live my faith is by serving others. I have always been involved in teaching or in various leadership positions in my church. Most of my teaching has involved young single adults in Institute of Religion classes, a young single adult stake, or with tens of thousands of missionaries at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. I love to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ through the power of music. Over the years my choirs have traveled across many parts of the United State and Canada teaching messages of love and faith through the power of music.
