Doug Christensen

Sara and Doug Christensen have been married for nearly 32 years. They went to Junior High and High school together, but only dated after Sara returned from a mission to Portugal. Following a mission to Sweden, Doug earned a BA in English Literature and an MFA in creative nonfiction from the University of Utah. In 2005 he returned to the U to pursue a degree in Rhetoric and Writing Studies. While pursuing his PhD he taught a variety of Writing classes and has had the good fortune to continue as an associate instructor in the Writing and Rhetoric Studies Department. He began teaching Seminary full time in 1992 and currently teaches at SLCC, Taylorsville Institute. Doug devotes any extra time to building furniture in his backyard shop and he writes regular book reviews for the Association of Mormon Letters. Sara and Doug enjoy traveling, making food, watching shows, working in the yard, hiking, and playing pickleball together; they enjoy all of the above with their children: Hannah (Brandon), Adelide (Chase), Henry (Kaylie), & Lillie Jane. But above all, they delight in the company of their granddaughters Edith (2) and Posy (6 mo).
