Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently finishing my undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering and I am preparing for dental school. I love participating in sprint triathlons, singing, dancing, playing the piano and spending time with family and friends. To be short, I love living life!

Why I am a Mormon

I love the Lord Jesus Christ! I have come to know for myself by the power of the Holy Spirit that the Church the Savior organized during His time on earth is again functioning as it did anciently. For over five generations my family has received the blessings associated with the Priesthood, hearing and obeying the counsel of living Prophets and Apostles, and studying the Holy Scriptures. My life as a full-time college student preparing for Dental School is super busy, but I find peace in living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. My family has been sealed together by one possessing the authority from God, such that our happiness doesn't end at death. I'm preparing to be married by that same authority so I will have my wife and future children for all of time and eternity. I can think of no greater joy than that which results from obedience to the commandments of our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I thoroughly enjoy serving others. Jesus' invitations include "Come, follow me" and "Go, and do thou likewise". He is my perfect example and I want to be more like Him. I follow Him by sharing the gospel with my friends, planning service projects to benefit my community and the University I attend, and making regular visits to a few individuals who attend Church with me to meet their needs. The Savior blessed the masses, but he ministered to individuals. He is the Good Shepherd of us all. I follow Him by doing my best to bless the lives of others through simple acts of service and love. I draw closer to my Heavenly Father as I pray several times daily and as I search for answers to my questions in the Holy Scriptures.

What is the priesthood?

The Priesthood is the power and authority that God gives to man to bless his children. It includes a call to serve others. In Matthew 10 in the Bible we read about when the Savior gave that authority to the Twelve Apostles so they could preach the gospel, serve individuals, and heal the sick. Those same things happen today because the Priesthood was restored to the earth. I know the Priesthood is real. I have experienced special blessings and miracles in my own life as a direct result.
