Hi I'm Douglas

I love music, I love films, I love my family and my friends. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Maryland, USA. My father was in the United States Navy and we moved around a lot. I moved to California and spent most of my childhood there. I then moved to Utah and that is where my family is currently residing. I love to do things outdoors (hiking, swimming, boating, wake boarding, shot gun shooting, etc) I have been called to serve an LDS mission in London, England. I have always grown up in the LDS faith, but I wasn't quite sure if it was true or not. I had to do a lot of thinking, praying, reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon to find out where God wanted me in life. I received an answer. This Church is true. The Book of Mormon is the word of God as well as the Bible. We can live again because of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

The first reason is because I was born into the church. I had to find out for myself if it were true or not, though. I had many questions about where my faith was and I felt lost. I turned to the Lord in prayer and scripture study. This is a journey that many people go on. I was taught that Jesus Christ knows how everyone feels. He can help us find direction and purpose in this life. I am so happy to know that God lives and loves me. Nothing has brought me greater joy than the knowledge of the Gospel. I came to know for myself where God needed me and where I am supposed to go in this life. I know that this church is true. I know that God has a plan for me. This knowledge brings me happiness and I love life and love being a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by keeping God's commandments and by going to church every week. I am serving as a missionary in London, England and I am helping people come closer to Christ. Before my mission, I was an assistant to the Bishop of our ward. I have been in many callings in the church and have been grateful for the experience it has given me. I love to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I love how we can be forgiven of our sins and become clean through His miraculous Atonement. I know that He can help us with anything in this life.

Are Mormons Christians?

Yes. We are Christians. We worship God the Eternal Father and His Son Jesus Christ. The official title of the church is, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. We love God and Jesus Christ and everything we do is for Them. Show more Show less
