Hi I'm Douglas Hague

I've done two semester of college at BYU and I am preparing to leave on my mission on September 7th.

About Me

I'm majoring in Computer Science at BYU, I enjoy swimming and biking, and I am good with computers. I am currently training for/serving in the San Diego Spanish Mission

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church in an active family. While growing up I was mostly just coasting along and I went to Church every Sunday because it was habit and it seemed like the right thing to do. As time goes on there will always come a moment in which a person must decide whether the church of their childhood is true. For me, it came around the time of preparing to submit my application to serve as a full time missionary to the church. There wasn't really a precise moment of glowing lights and angels singing, and a big answer of "Yes! This is True!" It was more of a quiet knowing, I just knew inside myself that what I was doing the right thing, and I realized that I had known the truth of the church for a long time and never really recognized it. I also know that the Book of Mormon is true, through a similar path. Again, I didn't receive a big bold answer about it, but as I continue to read in it each day I can feel the spirit while I read. Throughout the Book of Mormon is clearer understanding of the full gospel of Jesus Christ. As a missionary I saw the difference that the Book can make in peoples' lives, the change that it brings to them when they read it daily and apply it's teachings to their lives. The book can bring peace in the most troubling of times, and I can always find a teaching that I need to be better about following when I read. It is a very special book.

How I live my faith

I attend church every sunday, I pray and read scriptures with my family every night, and I also do personal prayer and study.
