Hi I'm Scott

I'm a small business owner, off road motorcycle enthusiast, adoptive parent, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with 3 children. I stay busy serving in the church and running a small business that provides technology consulting services for law firms. When not busy with this I am often with my wife as we watch our kids participate in various High School music and sporting activities. I've watched many an hour of soccer, gymnastics, swimming, baseball, basketball, volleyball, band and choir and enjoy every minute of it. I have met a number of friends through church and enjoyed the years of spending time with them at daddy/daughter or father/son camp outs or one of our manly man opportunities where we spend time in beautiful Colorado camping, fishing, and riding motorcycles.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in an LDS family with parents that practiced the religion but I suppose that any member of this church is a convert at some point in their life. I appreciate the example set by my mother and father as they led our family by example in following the commandments of Christ. At the time of our marriage my wife and I determined that we wanted our children to grow up with the same opportunities and strengths that we had in the children and youth organizations of the church. A decision we have never regretted. One of the greatest appreciations I have is for the LDS Temples. The Temples serve a special purpose and are different than the chapels we meet in each week. Two of my three children are adopted and it was a blessing to me and my wife as we were able to take our children to the Temple where our family was sealed together for the eternities. Families can be together forever and I want that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. I am far from perfect but strive for perfection as I follow the example set by my Savior Jesus Christ, who was perfect. Life is the small things. We often have grand goals which is fine, but life is made up living day by day. I try to set a good example for my children by being honest in my business dealings. We do our best to hold family home evening which is where we spend one night a week together. Something that sounds easy but can be very difficult with active kids. Some weeks it will be a gospel related lesson while other weeks our family home evening is spent supporting a family member in a school activity or going to a movie. We read the scriptures as a family and pray together. I've gained an appreciation for service in the church, both serving others and being served.
