Hi I'm Scott

I am first and foremost a husband and father, a corporate executive, and a car enthusiast I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have am first and foremost a husband to my beautiful wife and father to four girls and a son. What prosperity the Lord has blessed me with has been for the purpose of supporting the needs of a growing family. All lasting joy is because of my relationship with my children (now grown) and my companion of 36 years. Though I recognize my interest in the intrigue and glamour of automobiles of all ages pales in comparison to my family and their needs, none the less I have enjoyed a hobby-interest of cars all of my life. Being on a realistic budget, I have not owned the exotic cars I read about. I have taken the more sensible route of buying used cars, somewhat passed their prime, and giving them love and attention to bring them back to their original shine and luster. I see cars as a symbol of our society as a whole and an extension of individual personalities of those who own them. I envy those who see cars as practical means of transportation, because life would be so much simpler then. However, I get great satisfaction in each reflection in the paint, each design element created from the minds of the designer, and each calculated benefit planned by the engineers as they assemble the thousands of parts that make up the cars that travel our America roads. I am a husband, a father, a business executive, and a car enthusiast, I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I recognize that all people, regardless of their station in live, search for happiness. I saw early in my life that following Christ and His teachings, serving others, and drawing my family close to me gives me lasting joy and peace. I have read the scriptures, prayed in private moments when I knew God could listen to my inner-most thoughts and received unmistakable answers that Jesus is the Christ, that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth in these the latter-days. My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Sanits is my rock; it is the foundation of my life.

How I live my faith

I am the Gospel Doctrine teacher in my ward, teaching the New Testament and enjoying the doctrine hidden in the stories we have heard since my childhood. I enjoy teaching and love the personal insights I get when I prepare to teach.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

I love all scripture and regard the Bible as an inspired account of his gealings with his children. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Living in happiness is the true purpose of life as designed by God for his children. We must seek out those things that bring true happiness from the many counterfeit temptations from Satan. Mormons believe that we are happiest when we are in harmony with God. The purpose of life is to seek after things that strengthen the spirit and avoid those things that weaken it.

What is the difference between attending a Mormon Church and a Mormon Temple?

The temple is teh pinacle of worship. It is special and personal. Attending church is special too, but is done with a congregation. Our church services are where you go to renew your covenant with God to follow Christ, serve others and learn the scriptures. Show more Show less
