Hi I'm Scott

I'm a father, husband and health economist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an economist at a large government agency and the luckiest father and husband in the world. I love hiking, skiing and playing with my wife, two little girls, and newborn son.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to the church, but nevertheless had to work to obtain a witness of my own that the church is true. Quite simply when I follow the teachings of the church I am more happy, have more peace, and draw closer to my Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

The way that I try to live my faith is in my home as a father and husband. I believe that my children are a precious gift from God, and that my wife and I can be together forever-- it helps to keep this perspective in mind when the inevitable challenges of family life arise.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

In temples we make sacred covenants with our heavenly father. Members who attend the temple must be spiritually prepared and have a sufficient base of knowledge to understand the nature of the covenants. It would be wonderful if everyone would one day go to the temple-- when they are ready.  Show more Show less
