Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and father of three boys, who are all the most important things in my life. A close second is sports - I love playing and following baseball, football, and basketball (Go Utes!). To support my sports fix, I also have to pay for my DirecTV ands the occasional Angels game, so I work as a lawyer. I graduated from Yale Law School in 2005, clerked for a judge for a year, and then went to work for a huge international law firm. After a few years of that, I switched to a small litigation boutique that doesn't place the same restraints on my time, which lets me spend a lot more time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon family, and was exposed to it my whole life. Growing up, I began to see how the teachings of the Mormon Church made me and my family happier. Living by its precepts made my parents better parents and made me a better son and brother (when I was actually following it precepts). However, as a teenager, I had to decide if it just taught good precepts, or if was truly the Church of Jesus Christ. Therefore, I dove into the Book of Mormon with more interest and sincerity then I ever had before. I read through it several times and spent hours on my knees asking God to confirm to me whether or not the Book of Mormon was true. I repeatedly received spiritual witnesses that this was God's Church and the teachings of his Son.

How I live my faith

As a father, it is exceptionally important to me to be a good example to my sons, especially regarding the things that I teach them. This includes abiding with the religion's pretty well-known "don'ts," but more importantly (to me) trying to do all of the affirmative things that make an individual a Christian. I think the traits that most profoundly mark someone as a Christian are charity, love, and service. I try to make sure that my family knows that I love them, and I try to show that in the way that I interact with them.
