Hi I'm Scott

I grew up in Utah, have also lived in Japan and Colorado, love the outdoors, and am married and a father of five boys.

About Me

I have been married to my lovely wife since 1989 and she has blessed our lives with 5 amazing boys that I enjoy hanging out and doing things with. We like to boat, wakeboard, hunt, fish, golf, and spend time outdoors. Up until recently, I spent 20 years working as an Electrical Engineer/Sales and Marketing executive the high-tech sector working with many high profile accounts all over the world. About 2 years ago, in an effort to improve the quality of life for our family, I left the high-tech sector and purchased a small sign business in our hometown of Windsor Colorado. Many of the family members are able to work in the business and it has given me the opportunity to stay home much more than I was able to when I was working in high-tech. We have been richly blessed as a family as we chose to follow the spirit and take a "leap of faith" in changing my career path.

Why I am a Mormon

I enjoy being a member of the LDS church because it provides much needed directions and inspiration in my life. I cannot imagine attempting to navigate the challenges of our mortal existence here on earth without understanding the answer to the question of "Why we are here?". The knowledge and understanding that I am here for a reason and that I have a purpose and can return to live together with my family and my Father in Heaven forever someday after I leave this life provides such clarity, purpose and direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I try to do my best at being an example of righteousness and faith to my family members and other in the community. I enjoy working with the youth and teaching the adult Sunday School classes on Sunday. It gives me a chance to reflect on how I am doing in my personal life and gives me the opportunity to continually repent and try to make improvements in my own life. I have been told on multiple occasions by community members and others that "I am different". I suppose that I could be weird, but it may just be that I have a mysterious happiness or sense of balance and content in my life. I believe that this is directly due to the knowledge that I have received from being a member of the church that helps me understand what my purpose in while I am here on the earth.
