Hi I'm Scot

My wife and I live in Texas. We are raising 5 wonderful children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father. My wife and I have five children. It can get pretty crazy around here, but we love them and do our best to raise them well. Having children has made me want to be a better person. My favorite activities are boating, skiing, and scuba diving. We love doing these things as a family. I hope that if my kids grow up working and playing together, they will want to stay close later in life. I am a Musculoskeletal Radiologist, and I teach how MRI works.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church and pretty much went through the motions for a long time. I served as a missionary for the Church in Portugal. During that time as a missionary, and again several times since, I felt like I needed to find out for myself if it was true. I had to search everything... is there really a God, can I pray and receive an answer, did the stories in the scriptures actually happen, are there really prophets that can communicate with God and deliver his words, etc. I have not always lived in a way that would be seen as a true follower of Christ. However, I have learned on a personal level that Christ is real, and that his promises are real. By relying on him, our burdens can be made light, and we can receive forgiveness and hope. The message of Christ is one of hope. I know that I have had times in which I have prayed and received an answer. I know for sure that there is a God. If I can find these things, anyone can.

How I live my faith

I give what I have to offer. I strive to be the best father and husband I can be. At work, I teach. In my congregation, I visit families, help people move, and facilitate the running of worship services. In my personal life, I do my best, and I pray (and trust) God to help me with the rest.
