Hi I'm Scott

I am a husband, father of five, high school girls' soccer coach, Auburn fan, and a marriage and family therapist. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a variety of areas in the United States (e.g., Louisiana, Utah, Michigan, and Tennesee) and since marrying in 1993 I have also lived in Alabama and now currently in Arizona. Growing up, I loved to visit family and most of our family vacations were centered around a trip to a relative's home. I currently enjoy spending time with my wife and children, coaching high school girls' soccer, and watching Auburn sports. I have been married for 17 years and have five children ranging in age from 16 to 3. Our family stays busy with church participation, school events, and participation in sports. I currently work at a county mental health agency as a marriage and family therapist and I enjoy helping others who are having a difficult time in their life.

Why I am a Mormon

Working to live as Christ has shown and taught brings me happiness and peace in my life. I feel the most peace and happiness when I strive to follow the commandments, including repenting when I have made a mistake. I have found that the atonement of Christ has changed who I am. As I have sought a relationship with our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ through sincere prayer, consistent scripture study, and monthly fasting, I have grown to recognize their love and mercy for me and everyone else.

How I live my faith

What is most important to me is that I live what I profess to believe. I try to treat others as Christ would, whether I am at home, work, or in the community. I am not perfect but I try to be kind and work to apologize if I create offense. I try daily to pray, read scriptures, and to repent of my shortcomings. I have a love for our Father in Heaven and our Savior Jesus Christ that leads me on a daily basis to seek their help in becoming who they would want me to be.
