Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First and foremost, I am a husband and father. My wife and I have eight children and ten (almost eleven) grandchildren. Five of our eight children are married and have begun families of their own. I have a natural gift for languages and have studied several european languages. In fact, I served in the US Air Force as a linguist for several years before completing a degree in Electrical Engineering (seemed like an easy transition from linguist to engineer at the time). I retired from the Air Force about twelve years ago. I enjoy traveling and have traveled extensively. I still work as a Systems Engineer and look forward to really retiring.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I remain active because of the deep conviction I have that Jesus is the Christ and that we have a loving Father in Heaven. I have read the Book of Mormon many times and am keenly aware of the sweet spirit that accompanies that volume of scripture. Indeeed, it is a companion to the Holy Bible in testifying of our Savior, Jesus Christ. My family is the most important thing in my life and the church cherishes and supports families. When my mother passed away over twenty-five years ago, it was and still is a great comfort knowing that families can be together forever and that I will see my mother again.

How I live my faith

Many years ago, I served a mission for the church in northern Italy. It was a difficult, yet rewarding experience. I made many friends and learned to love even those who were hard to like. I have had the privelege of teaching many youth groups and had served as a Scoutmaster. I love being with the youth of today... they are vibrant and alive. Currently, I am the Bishop (like a pastor) of our congregation and spend many hours helping people understand their divine nature as children of our Father in Heaven, coordinating meetings, and planning activities. In the Book of Mormom, King Benjamin said "when ye are in the service‍ of your fellow‍ beings ye are only in the service of your God." I know this is a is a true principle.
