Hi I'm Doug Whiting

I'm a husband and a father of four children. I'm a computer geek, engineer, and entrepreneur. I love to teach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a PhD in computer science and helped start a successful high-tech company for which I worked as an engineer my entire career. Each day I exercise for at least an hour. My wife and I have been married over 39 years, with four wonderful children. We will soon be serving a full-time mission in Italy (where we each served missions when we were young), working with young single adults from our church.

Why I am a Mormon

God lives and loves us -- I have seen and felt his power and spirit regularly in my life. Modern prophets and revelation help us to be happy and find fulfillment in our lives. The gospel of Jesus Christ gives us answers to the difficult questions we all struggle with.

How I live my faith

Our congregations are like extended families, and it is a joy to serve each other and worship together each week. I taught early morning scripture study classes for high-school youth from our church for nine years, loving every minute of it. Over the years, I have enjoyed many different kinds of assignments at church, but teaching is the best! I love studying the Bible and our modern scriptures daily.
