Hi I'm Douglas Clarke

I was born in Vancouver B.C. love sports, music the gospel and being outdoors. I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm the oldest of 8 kids. I grew up in Japan as a little kid and spent most of my youth exploring forests and neighbourhoods with my siblings. As well as playing with friends and playing soccer. After High school I have worked as a worker for a exterior maintenance company called Home Service Center to save up for my mission. After awhile I was also able to work up to being a lead hand in the business and manage my own crews. That helped a lot in being able to save up for the mission. I hope to go to school and take business and one day be an entrepreneur. In my free time I like to go camping with friends, canoeing, hiking and all that jazz. In the Winter my favourite thing to do is to go snowboarding.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church and was raised by some awesome parents who helped me to gain my own testimony of the Gospel. The reason why I am a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is simply because I have tested what it teaches and know that it is true by the Holy Ghost. I know that the Saviour Jesus Christ lives and that Heavenly Father truly loves us and has called again like old times a Prophet to restore his Church and kingdom on the earth again. I know this especially because of the Book of Mormon that was prepared to come forth in these days. Because I've read it and lived by its principles and seen the blessings of it and not only that but I have prayed to know its true just like how it says in it. To ask god whether its true and I have received an answer that it is. Because I'm a Mormon I love life and God and all men. Through living the gospel of Jesus Christ I have been able to live in a way that has brought many blessings and joy to my life.

How I live my faith

There is nothing cooler to me than the gospel, I love what it teaches and how it helps me to live my life to the fullest. When I say the fullest I don't mean it teaches me to drink and party but it teaches me how to live so that I can be the happiest I can be. And to love those around me and be able help them be happy too. How I live the faith is by striving everyday to be more like my saviour Jesus Christ by doing those things he's told us to do through the scriptures and the prophets. Like reading my scriptures and praying everyday, keeping the commandments, being kind to those around me, and to serve others. One way I have chosen to serve is by deciding to go on a mission and sharing the gospel with the world.
