Hi I'm Connor Scarlett

I'm a missionary in Oregon, I want to be a firefighter, I speak spanish and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

some of my hobbies are paint balling, hanging out with friends and working! I went to 2 years of firefighting school. And i am currently serving a mission right now in Oregon. I also play video games on my x-box 360. I did not go to school because i needed mission money so i worked for a year.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because i choose to be. I love the way it makes me feel and it is apart of who i am as a person. I was about 15 when i got into some trouble and i sat back thinking of what was missing. I soon realized that i need to start reading the bible/book of Mormon more in my life. so i did and because i did I'm serving a faithful mission.

How I live my faith

i live my faith by serving a mission and by being the best that i can be to people. I volunteered allot for my church in bake sales and other things. I am active in the scouting program we have in the church and i love camping. i show my love for the lord by going to church and participating not just going and being a warm body.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Connor Scarlett
For me the Word of Wisdom is such a big thing these days to watch out for. The word of Wisdom is a health code that we live by. We dont fill our bodies with harmful substances, such as drugs,alcohol,tea,smokeing and things of that nature. When we follow this law passed down from a Prophet he promises us health and strength. Just like Daniel in the old testament resisted the wine and the meat of the king...so do we in these days with so called "wine and meat". I have taught this lesson many times on my mission and i know that its hard but worth it. Show more Show less

What is faith?

Connor Scarlett
To have faith is to “hope for things which are not seen, which are true", Alma 32:21. I love this becuase faith is action. Just simply beleiving and then saying "i dont have to work anymore" is false. "Fatih with out works is dead" (james 2:17). So faith is action that leads to more faith and so on and so forth. You always have to know without doubt that it will happen and you have to try your hardest to make it happen. By being obidient to the commandments. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Connor Scarlett
Family to me is everything! Nothing comes close to the bond that me and my famly enjoy together in this life. We have this Bond becuase we believe that after this wife we can see eachother again. We beleive that these times here on earth should be fun and sweet. Not so boged down with sadness. The scriptures In 3 nephi 18:21 we always haveto pray as a family so that satan will have a harder time at tempting us. No one is perfect thats why God put us in our families to grow and to learn together in this life. I love my Father in heaven for puting me in MY family. Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Connor Scarlett
We do not worship The Prophet Joseph Smith. We know that he was a prophet of God and called to Restore The Church of Jesus Christ. We beleive that God has always worked "Holy Men" such as Noah and Moses. Like wise just like them was also know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. Show more Show less
