Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a divorced Dad with a 6 and 7 year old. I am involved with their education. I am the PTO president at their school. I enjoy interacting with them and helping them develop their testimony of our Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I was drawn to the Church during a difficult time in my life. I felt most comfortable and loved by the Church and it's members. There isn't any pressure to belong. The Love and compassion that they have for others and have shown me can only come from a place of true spiritual Love. We are a family. They understand that being a Mormon is a personal choice. They encourage you to seek guidance from Heavenly Father in making the decision to join the Church. Once you earnestly seek guidance it is provided to you. The answer to join the Church came through very clear for me. Once I had that confirmation I had to act on it. I have never felt closer to God. I continue to build my testimony and look forward to sharing it with others.

How I live my faith

I continually look for opportunities to share my testimony with others and help them in any way possible. Loving others the way we love ourselves is the best way to live like Christ.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Scott
Christians believe in the authority of Jesus Christ. He is the perfect example for all of us to strive to achieve. Without proper authority there is no meaning. You cannot start pulling people over and writing them speeding tickets because you do not have the authority to do so. If you did, the people that you wrote the tickets to would not listen to you because you do not have the authority. In order to perform Baptism's you need the proper authority. This authority must come from those that have the authority to bestow it upon you. Divine messengers came to Earth to bestow that authority on the Church leaders during the restoration. Our authority to perform baptism's can be traced to the prophet John the Baptist and the Apostles Peter, James and John. Show more Show less
