Hi I'm Scott

I'm a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, And i'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 26yrs old, I am a Student at a community college where I live, I am studying Communications and Journalism. I served in the US Air Force for a short period of time and then worked in juvenile corrections. I have a wife and two small children ages 3 and 5. My family is the world to me. We love to travel and see all the world has to offer. I have recently began to pursue my dream of photography it has been a blessing to me, I have been able to see so much of what our Heavenly Father has given us through the lens of my camera. The images that are taken reinforce my testimony in the divinity of our maker.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because I know the Church is true. It sounds cliche but it is really that simple. All it took for me is to open my heart and let the spirit in, and all my questions have been answered from that point on. I have been blessed so much in my life and it all has been given to me by a loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by knowing that the Church is true... How do I know its true you may ask? Well, I always knew I wanted more answers to life's questions, when i came to the Church looking for my answers the Church gave me a question in return... I was asked to pray about the Book of Mormon and the Prophet Joseph Smith to know for myself whether or not it is true. My prayers were indeed answered and so now i live my faith in the church and Jesus Christ by Serving my fellow man, working with the youth, and being a Scout Master in my wards Troop.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

Scott
Mormons Baptize new members because it is what the Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to do. It is the physical way of becoming a member of his Church, and to follow in Christ's footsteps. Baptism in our Church is done by a person who has the proper authority given by God to be able to act in his name. Baptism is important because it is also a covenant between you and your Heavily Father, a Promise from him to you and you to him that will continually bless your life. I still remember my Baptism, that still calmness I felt, knowing that I have come one step closer to my Heavenly Father, and then having the gift of the Holy Ghost and knowing for sure that I had made the right choice.  Show more Show less
