Hi I'm Douglas

I am the youngest of 8, I love mountains, family, and food. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. I love to meet new people, it is my favorite thing to do! I love being active, I am an avid soccer player, and have been since I was 6. I have played in many levels of the game, up to high school, and I hope to be able to play for Utah Valley University when I get home from my mission. I leave August 2015 for the Provo MTC, and shortly after for the Germany, Frankfurt mission! I hope to be able to study and become a biomedical engineer as well as a husband and father in the future.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons that can answer the question of why I am a Mormon, but the reason that seems to more fully give reason to my choice, is the feeling I have each and every day as a member of this church and a follower of christ. Having the holy spirit in my life, and being able to watch a change in myself day to day is the greatest feeling. It gives me hope for the future, for I know that when I mess up, it is not the end, because an all knowing and all loving Heavenly Father is right behind me to catch me when I stumble, put me right back on my feet. I am a mormon because the unity that the gospel provides in my life has provided me with too many experiences for me to ignore the validity and truthfulness of the gospel. The church is true, and I will say that forever. I will do my best to bring my earthly brothers and sisters unto christ, because he shows us what true joy is, and how we may obtain such light through this life and in the hereafter.

How I live my faith

I have been an active participant in the church for my whole life. I have been a leader of young mens groups, and been a part of many service groups and activities. I have attended the efy program, and tried earnestly to share my testimony with others. I am dedicating the next two years of my life to the lord and serving a mission. I strive to live my faith each day, because it makes me a better person!
