Hi I'm Scott

I'm a vagabond and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I studied international business and I've visited or worked in more than 40 countries on four continents. I love to spend time with family and friends, traveling, meeting people from different cultures, eating exotic foods, mountain biking, river rafting, skiing and hiking with my dogs.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I like it! It feels right. Knowing that I have a Heavenly Father that cares for me makes me happy. He has answered my prayers in ways that let me know He is there. "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you." Matthew 7:7 Through a witness of the Holy Spirit, I believe the Book of Mormon is additional scripture from God. Because I know the Book of Mormon was translated through the power of God given to Joseph Smith, I also know that Joseph Smith was God's prophet. He had authority given to him by heavenly messengers to re-establish Christ's church which had been lost due to the apostasy predicted by the apostles in the New Testament. The Savior said, "Whatsoever thing persuadeth men to do good is of me." Ether 4:12 The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints make me feel good about myself and others.

How I live my faith

I attend church services on Sunday and meet with fellow Latter-day Saints to worship God regardless of which country I am working in. It is easy to make new friends very quickly because of our common values and shared beliefs. I had a co-worker who once told me that I was so lucky to have my church all over the world. Through church, I have friends away from home to do things with after work, whereas my co-workers spend their evening and weekends trapped in the hotel because they don't know anyone. By attending services in foreign countries, I know we are all God's children, regardless of our culture, race or nationality. We are individuals that love and want to be loved.
