Hi I'm Scott Lathen

I live in Spokane and am a father, husband, and environmental engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a professional environmental engineer. I have been married for 6 years and have two beautiful daughters. I enjoy working out and playing outside (fishing, hiking, gardening). I graduated from BYU in 2007 with a Masters degree in civil engineering. I love to read, especially history books and good novels.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a a Mormon household but somewhere on the way, I realized that I know this is Christ's church. This knowledge has come mostly from reading the Book of Mormon. I have read it many times and every time I read it, I feel the power of it in my life and know that it is true. Knowing the Book of Mormon is true, I know that everything else in the Church is true. There are prophets today and Christ directs the church through them.

How I live my faith

I love serving the youth of the church, especially through the Boy Scouts. There is no better feeling than serving the youth and others. Even helping to unload moving trucks!
