Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a young adult and I am a design engineer in the Aerospace industry. I love to play Ultimate Frisbee and enjoy watching nearly any sport, especially football. I love to read classics and also new popular books. I love to spend time with friends and to get to know new people. Spending time with others is something I can do everyday. I can't have too many friends! I really like to go on road trips and explore new parts of the country with others. I'd like to get to all Major League Baseball stadiums before I die.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I believe in the truths I have been taught. My parents, and their parents and so forth were members of this church, so you could say I was "born" into it. However, I have had my feelings confirmed. I have wanted to know for myself if all the different principles and doctrines are correct, and truly come from God through His modern day prophets. I have prayed to God to know if such doctrines are true. One of the strongest confirmations I've had is about the first prophet in our time. This prophet is Joseph Smith. As I've heard his experiences and sung of the great things he did, I have felt comforted and peaceful. For me, feeling this comfort, peace and happiness confirm to me that what I've been learning is true. I also have a testimony of the Saviour, Jesus Christ. As I have tried to change my life, and also seen others do the same, I have seen the peace and happiness that comes from changing for the better. These are feelings of forgiveness, which can only come through Jesus Christ's sacrifice for all of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always striving to serve those around me. I've given numerous people numerous rides to activities all around town. I took time out each week to help with the finances in our singles group. I have taught Sunday lessons for a few years now, always striving to help others participate and be able to learn from myself and their pupils. I love teaching, or more discussing the scriptures in both the Bible and the Book of Mormon. Through these discussions we all learn together. I also really like to talk to others. I do my best to be able to help those I know need it, even if they don't always say so.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Scott
There are so many things that tell me there is a God here on earth. I love being outdoors and looking at the beauties of nature all around us. There is so much beauty in nature that I know there is a God, who created the earth and made it so beautiful for us. The joy and happiness I can have even when times are very difficult. As I pray and seek for help and comfort, God gives me the peace to help me continue through these times. Show more Show less
