Hi I'm scotty

im a bassist, a gamer, a writer, a beach dude, missionary. i love my savior and im a mormon.

About Me

Hey yall my name is Scotty , im a missionary for the church of jesus christ of latter-day saints in the best mission in the world, the Texas Fort Worth Mission, yee haww!! im 22 years old and ive been a member of the church my whole life. i love to listen and play all sorts of music but my favorite is defintly hard rock and metal. i love going to the beach and having an awesome time surfing and being with friends. i love writing srtores and i hope that one day i can be an animation screenwtiter. a person who writes stories for cartoons i grew up in a large family of seven kids so yeah family is kinda important to me. i love the gospel of jesus christ and how it can fit all of us no matter where we come from or what kind of person we are. im also a big air soft payer and love gaming from time to time.

Why I am a Mormon

im a mormon because through out my life, the gospel as restored by the prophet jospeh smith just all made sense to me. i relized that throughout my life that true happines comes from living the gospel and loving the lord with all your heart. even though i've been a member all my life, i wasnt truly converted, there came a point in where i started to think if jesus christ really did care about me personnaly and not just in a genaral sense. i prayed to know if christ loved me and after a long while of reading the book of mormon and going to church more often, i felt this burning in my heart that heavenly father did indeed love me and that his gospel in its fullness is back upon the earth. i also belive strongly in the church because of its teaching of the importance of families, as i said before i grew up in a very large family and they mean all of the world to me. what comforts me about the church is that it teachs that through heavenly fathers plan we can live with our families forever. icontune to be a fatihful church member because i love my savoir jesus christ, he has done so much for all of us and wants us to follow him as best as we can.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to be the best i can be to follow christs example and serve others. just like it says in the bible: John 14:15 " if ye love me, keep my commandments" I try to apply that saying personally everyday as to show the savior that i care about him and what he has done for me. i am also showin my faith greatly at this point in my life by being a missionary and helping others to come unto christ. everybody needs this gospel and no one is rejected from it. i find it a blessing that the lord gives missioanries all over the world that chance to share that message. i also live my faith by trying to stay worthy of my baptismal covenants. a covenant is a two way promise we make to god, he gives us commandments to follow if we obey we our blessed. from baptisim we make a promise with god that we will always follow him and do what he says, this provides great strength for me as i go trough life and trough all the tough times. in the community i teach people about christ and his retored gospel and i also try to help with whatever people need by providing service. back home i helped my ward by working with the youth and to teach them about church and how the gospel can help them in their lives. from that i would like to bear my testimony or personal belief, that jesus christ the savior and redeemer of all the world. i also know that joseph smith was a prophet of god and that he did restore the church to its fullness just as christ taught it. i also know that the current prophet Thomas S. Monson is the livinig prophet of our day and that his councel can lead us to better happiness and finally iwould like to testify that god lives and that his son, jesus christ cares about each and everyone of us personally.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Not all people are reqiured but it is strongly encourged that young men from the ages of 19-26 and young women starting from the age of 21, should serve a mission. it is highly encourged becuse it blesses the lives of those the missionaries serve and the missionareis themselves. usally when people come back from their missions they gain alot and grow in all aspects of life. it also gives them an oppurtinuty to share the truthfullness of the gospel and to help people know of the restoration of christ's church through the prophet joseph smith. this is our specail message to the world and its important that we share it with everyone because of the joy and happiness it can bring. we also follow the adomnition of the lord when he says in mark 1615 "Go ye into the world and preach the gospel to every creature." as missionaries we strive our best to do as the savior said and preach the gospel to all the earth.
