Hi I'm Doug

I grew up in River Falls Wisconsin and live in Lakeville Minnesota. I joined the church on Feb 17, 2013 I am a mormon

About Me

I grew up in Minnesota and recently converted to the LDS faith. I was married for the second time 2 weeks ago and baptised the next day. I have 2 biological children - a teenage daughter and son. I have a son and daughter by marriage - both teenagers. I worked in the counseling field for several years with teenagers and families. I now working in the long term care insurance field and supervise 12 people. I like to cook, work out and spend time doing family activities.

Why I am a Mormon

The main reason I joined the church is because it is true. I was initially introduced to the church because my girlfriend is a member and wanted me to attend church with her. I was immediately impressed with how friendly and welcoming everyone in church was - no matter where I went. I never experianced any pressure to join the church - when I was ready I invited the missionaries into our home. Through the lessons they taught and the fellowship we shared I came to really believe that Joseph Smith was visited by angels and the resulting book of mormon was true. I feel I am an intregal part of gods plan and am excited and energized to see how he will use me to spread the word to others. I am not perfect by any means and I stumble but never fall - Christ and my brother and sisters in the church are always there to catch me! I learn something new about myself daily- it is scary and exciting all at once. Joining the church was my choice one of the best ones I will ever make.

How I live my faith

I met with the church missionaries for the past several months and I was just baptized into the church 2 weeks ago - 2-17-13, but attended regulary for several months prior. I attend church every sunday including sacrement - sunday school etc. I recently attended Stake conference and will be attending General Conference in April. I pray all the time and read scriptures regularly.
