Hi I'm Scott

I play football, the trombone, and the ukulele. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a pretty goofy kid that likes to have fun with my friends. I am in high school, and I love to learn. I enjoy Spanish, U.S. History, and English (even though I'm not the best at them). As well as school, I love music. I sing, play the trombone, and play the ukulele. I try to dance, but am not that good. Football is my favorite sport and I play it on my high school football team. I am a tight end and inside linebacker. I love my family and I spend as much time with them as I can watching movies and just talking. I love to tell puns and jokes, in fact you might say I collect them.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of this church, so finding the gospel after living a life without it was not something I had to face. However, keeping the standards that I have been taught since my childhood has not been easy considering the daily struggles the world puts in my way. So the question is why do I do this? why don't I drink? Why don't I swear? why do I pray? why am I a Mormon? First of all I know I that this church is true without a doubt in my mind. The Holy Ghost has made this known to me through the joy I have received in my soul when I pray for answers, live the gospel , read the Book of Mormon, and when I fall short, repent. Also, I continue to be Mormon because I know that I can do it. I know that I have a loving Heavenly Father, and I know I have the potential to be like him and his son Jesus Christ through the atonement Christ performed to save the world. With the knowledge that I have a divine potential and savior to guide me through life, I know that it is possible to live the gospel of Jesus Christ, and to love it, which I do!

How I live my faith

I live my faith through service. I have come to learn that service to others is what brings true joy. I am a Boy Scout, and I enjoy serving members of the community with the other boys in my troop. I love moving people and doing yard work to serve them, but the way that I try to serve others the most is at school. At school there are a lot of kids that need service. I try to open doors, set up chairs, or just actually have a real conversation with the students in my class. With just a daily conversation with someone you can get to know them so well, and learn to care for them in a Christ like way. I Also visit the elderly members of my church who are not able to make it to the meetings. In addition to service I keep the commandments of my church, and heed the council of our modern day prophets. Finally, I have set up habits for myself to read the scriptures and pray everyday so that I can open my heart to allow the spirit to tell me what my Heavenly Father would want me to know.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Scott
The Mormon lifestyle is one of progress. We try to learn as much as we can in this life, and as a result, we try to experience as many different uplifting things as possible. The commandments we keep protect us from not being able to learn from life. As for the most important thing in a Mormon lifestyle would be the family. The reason why this experience takes place is so that families could take form and be able to spend eternity with each other. We focus on learning and progressing, but we don't do it alone. We share our joys with our family members and our friends as much as possible. The progress we make benefits our families by making our homes more safe and uplifting places to live in.

What is being a Mormon like?

Scott
It is the best, sweetest thing in the world. I am so thankful I have this gospel in my life. Sometimes it is tough to face the temptations that face me daily, but I know that my knowledge of the truth will overcome any doubts that temptation tries to install into my heart. Being a Mormon is fun, hard, possible, and absolutely worth it. Show more Show less
