Hi I'm Douglas

I'm a beginning entrepreneur and want to own my own business one day. I love the guitar, music, and technology. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I recently graduated high school and seminary. I am going to be serving as a missionary in the England London South Mission on October 1st. I have been interested in business and entrepreneurship for a few years now. I have previously released an app on the App Store and am currently working on starting an online business. I play a little guitar and love music. I have always been interested in technology, especially Apple. I love the outdoors and love just riding around on my bike. After I return from my mission, I will attend Utah State University and major in the business program there.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Church and I've been taught these truths of the gospel ever since I was little, but that doesn't mean I am forced to be here; I still choose to be a member of this church. I choose to be a member of this church because I know that it is Christ's church. This church has all the truths of His gospel, and knowing those truths has helped me become a better person more than any other thing could. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and each time I have prayed and received an answer from God that the book is true. I know it is true and I know that this church is true. I know God loves each and every one of us and He wants us to be happy and to also return to Him. I know God is there for each of us and is there to listen and help us through our trials. These truths have helped me so much in my life and I know they are true.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be more like Christ. I try to do the things that He would have me do. I try to help make others' days better and try to live my life a little better each day. I have helped lead and serve the boys and youth in my age group since I was 12. I have helped plan and organize activities such as a scout camp, service projects and our weekly activities. Starting in October, I am going to be serving as a missionary in Southern England to teach and to help the people there come closer to Christ and find joy in this life and the next.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Missionaries proselyte simply because they love the gospel and they know how much it can help others' lives. Missionaries themselves have been blessed with the joy of the gospel and so they want others to feel that joy as well. We want others to know the truths we know so that they can have the same happiness that we have. Just as you would share your favorite dessert with a friend, we want to share the gospel with others because it has changed our own lives and it is something that we truly love and are grateful for. We want others to come closer to God and know and feel that He loves them. Christ has also commanded to "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations". We look forward to the opportunity to share the good news that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings. Show more Show less
