Hi I'm Scott

I'm a husband, father, banker by profession, aspiring writer, chess and "recreational" math lover – and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of two beautiful girls and the luckiest husband in the world. I love learning, reading, playing chess, and web development as a hobby. I work as a banker by day; aspire to be a writer when time permits; and am happy for every minute of this life that the Lord has given me!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? It's for my beautiful wife and daughters. I know that through faith in the lord Jesus Christ, every man may enjoy a life of everlasting happiness, shared in the company of his family, living in the presence of God. I couldn't imagine my life without them and am grateful for the blessing of their company. I love to watch them talk, smile, and laugh, in a way only mothers and daughters can. I love to watch them grow, eagerly showing me the things they've learned and accomplished. I love to hear "I love you," and to say it back. And I miss them when they're not around. I'm thankful that Heavenly Father's plan provides a way by which families can be together forever. I pray that one day I'll be worthy of that blessing and ask for His help in getting there.

How I live my faith

I'm proud to call myself a Mormon. I was raised in the church, read the scriptures as often as I can, and am grateful for the opportunity to live this life and do the Lord's work. Though I never served a mission, I welcome every opportunity I get to talk about my faith. I teach the children at church gospel principles and doctrine, but often find myself learning even more from them. I strive to do the best I can to follow the Lord's commandments and am grateful for the everlasting power of the atonement. One of my favorite activities is Family Home Evening. Each Monday evening, church members set aside time to spend together as a family. We start with prayer, a spiritual lesson centered around the teachings of Christ, and if the mood strikes us just right, a hymn. After that, we spend time together playing a game or other activity and then usually end the evening with dessert. I believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and know Him to be God's only begotten son, our savior, and the only name by which men might be saved.
