Hi I'm Doug

I was born and raised in Stockton California. I went to BYU-Idaho and serving a mission in Salem Oregon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

i enjoy music, movies and DJ'ing. I love playing all sports such as football, basketball, tennis, racquetball, and every other sport you can think of. My favorite sport to play by far is Rugby. I have an older brother, an older sister and a younger sister, with one niece and one nephew. I enjoy reading fantasy-fiction books. a few of my favorites is Harry Potter, Inheritance Series, and Fable Haven. I also enjoy a card game called Magic the Gathering.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and continued to go for friends. As I continued to go, I learned of a program for the Youth called Especially for Youth. I went to EFY for three years. My third year was my favorite and I loved everyone there and figured I want to spend my life with people like this and no one else. I came to the conclusion that living the way i did before was not making me happy in any way, shape or form and felt like a change was needed. After working for years with church leaders i have been able to learn how to better my life through the church and help me grow as an individual, a human being and a member of this church.

How I live my faith

I have been raised in the church all of my life and I strive my best to do the Lord's will. I learned at a very late stage in my life that following what the Lord wants me to do is an easier way of living life. I daily strive to do the best I can to serve others I come in contact to. Service is my biggest strength and joy, when i serve others, i forget my own troubles and worries and focus all of my attention on the task at hand.
