Hi I'm Scott
I love to work hard. I love to play hard. I love to serve. I'm a Mormon.
I grew up in Spanish Fork, Utah. I was the kid that would walk around the neighborhood and that everybody knew. I've had a independent personality since I was young. I guess that comes from growing up as the youngest of 8 kids in my family. I love music. I know how to play several instruments but I'm best at Violin and Piano. I also was in a children's chior for from age 4 until I was 18. I graduated from high school while at the same time graduating with an Associates Degree from a local University. I have traveled a lot and definetely have a love for traveling. I love to swim, snorkel, and scuba diving. I love to hike and go camping with friends and family. During high school I worked at a company that does Internet Marketing and SEO. I left my job and schooling for the space of 2 years to serve a mission in South Carolina. I am currently working on a Bachelors Degree in Internation Business.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up in the church, where my parents and church members taught me many precious values which have helped me out a lot. I chose to be baptized when I was 8 years old and I am very glad that I made such a wise decision. I knew that what I was taught was true and that the Book of Mormon and Bible are scripture from which we can recieve guidance and knowledge about what to do. It felt right. I was happy and could feel God's love for me. But their have come many other moments when I recieved stronger witnesses that this is the real deal. I can feel a great peace when I am at church. I feel more energy and excitement about life everytime I read the Book of Mormon and find an answer to a question that I have had in my mind. The Lord has answered my prayers when I ask Him for confirmations on what I learn. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer. I also know that He has restored His true church to the earth. So even though I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have definetely gained my own witness that this church is the one that Christ established. I know this from reading the Book of Mormon for myself and praying to God, asking if it what I am doing is correct.
How I live my faith
Currently, I am a serving as a full time missionary to hispanics. That means I go around teaching hispanics about Christ and invite them to come unto Christ through learning about and living His Gospel and teachings which He has restored to the earth today. That is what I am fully dedicated to, 24/7. I have left my family, friends, xbox, job, college, and mountains for the space of 2 years to be able to do this. Was it hard? Yes. Has it been worth it? Absolutely. I have gained such a great appreciation for faith in Christ in my life as I have seen it change the lives of those that I work with. Do I get turned away often? Yes, but I love it when those who are seeking to follow Christ listen to this message. I study the scriptures and try my best to live what I learn each day. They have been a great help in keeping the commandments and keeping my life happy. I'm continually working on learning to love as much as Christ loves each one of us. Service probably the biggest way that I try to share the love that God has shown towards me.
