Hi I'm Scott

I grew up in Idaho. I create computer software. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Arizona. I have a beautiful wife and three wonderful children. I create business software. I enjoy teaching my children and spending time with my family. We like to go hiking as family, but not in the Arizona summer.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. I learned the teachings at home and at church. I asked our Heavenly Father if what I was being taught was true. Sweet peaceful feelings followed in my heart. Now as a father, I want my children to be able to receive that same sweet peace that the gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I have been asked to participate in many activies at church. I had the opportunity to be a Scout Master for a few years and watch young men grow up to be men. I now work as a leader of men, helping to teach them to be better men and better fathers. I also teach my children in our home. We try to read from the scriptures daily and pray as a family.

What is the purpose of the welfare services of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Scott
Welfare in the church is all about helping people in need. It is not just for helping people out for the moment, but helping them out for life. It is all about helping someone to be self-reliant. It is to help people to increase their self worth. Show more Show less
