Hi I'm Scott

I'm a CPA. I'm a sports enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father and a husband and love spending time with my family. We especially enjoy visiting extended family, taking short road trips, and playing in the yard. I participate in athletic activities such as golf, basketball and tennis. I enjoy enjoy challenging myself mentally as well as physically with things such as crossword puzzles and long distance running.

Why I am a Mormon

The Bible explains that we come to believe in Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Ghost (1 Corinthians 12:3). The Holy Ghost has a special role on earth to testify of truth, like the extraordinary mission of our Savior Jesus Christ, or the sacred nature of scripture. The Holy Ghost typically responds affirmatively to sincere, prayerful questions by feelings of love and peace (Galatians 5:22). I believe through the power of the Holy Ghost that the Bible is the work of God. After establishing these beliefs in my life, I am a Mormon principally for the following two reasons. 1. The power of the Holy Ghost has testified to me that in addition to the Bible being the word of God, the Book of Mormon is also the word of God. 2. We are taught in both the Bible and the Book of Mormon that Jesus not only taught the true gospel and died for us, but also established a church (Acts 2:47; Ephesians 4:5-16; 3 Nephi 27:1-12). These beliefs lead me to believe in the Mormon church's message and authority. I continue to feel the power of the Holy Ghost testify to me that this is Christ's church (Matthew 7:20). That being stated, I love other religions that make its member better individuals, and bring them closer to Jesus Christ. We ask them to bring the many truths that they believe in and allow the Mormon church to add to those truths by means of the Book of Mormon, authority to perform ordinances such as baptism, and the power to bind families together beyond this life.

How I live my faith

In our local congregation, I have duties related to men between the ages of 18 and 50, and their families. I assist in organizing a Sunday meeting every Sunday for these men. We focus on ways we can implement gospel principles in our lives as husbands, fathers, employees, and neighbors in an effort to better raise our children and lead happy and successful lives. I also often participate in visits in the homes of our members, encouraging them to apply Christ's teachings within their family unit.
