About Doug

Blogging is an interesting outlet of expression. Anyone can say anything they want about any topic. For me, I choose to focus the majority of my writings on things I have discovered on my walk with God. The actual topics will vary but you can be sure that most will include at  least one passage of scripture and some will speak directly about Mormonism.

I was born into a LDS family so Mormonism was the only belief system I ever knew.  During the 30 years I was a member, I did all the things a “good Mormon guy” should do but found that church to be lacking the ability to provide the peace and joy spoken of in the Bible. No matter how many good works I did I never felt closer to God. In fact it seemed I was getting farther away from Him. Doubting my faith and wanting more than Mormonism could offer, my wife and I made the decision to change churches. We did not really know what we were looking for and had never had to find a church but we were so blessed to have people around us that noticed our struggle. With their help we have planted roots in a great church that makes us feel at home and has great concern for our spiritual growth.

God has blessed me with a fantastic wife and daughter who support me in so many ways.

God’s grace and providence are evident in my life each and every day.  I owe everything I have to Him.

I became a Christian on January 18, 2009. You can read my testimony here.

1 Timothy 1:14 – The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

Since then, God’s Word has come alive and studying and sharing is my favorite thing to do. I have also cultivated a great love for prayer and worship.

God has called me to educate and equip other Christians about the Mormon church, helping them better understand what it is they believe and how to share the Gospel of Grace with them. For more information on that visit the Teaching Engagements page.

Favorite Bible Passage:

Titus 3:3-7

3At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life.
