Hi I'm Scott

I am a husband, a father, a Realtor, an Arizona State University Alumni, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am grateful to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so grateful to know Gods plan not only for me but for all of his children. To know where I come from, especially that I am a child of God, & where I am going along with why I am here brings me great comfort and joy. I have had many ups & downs in life, but as I have come out of these trials I have been made stronger. My testimony of Christ as my Savior, Lord, and Brother have grown as he has helped me through each trial in my life. It empowers me to know I am a true Son of God. I think often of a quote by the Elder Richard G. Scott "We see ourselves in terms of yesterday and today, our Heavenly Father sees us in terms of forever. Although we might settle for less, HE WILL NOT. For He sees us as the glorious beings we are capable of becoming." I know that today there is a living prophet on earth, what a wonderful thing it is to know that there is a prophet called of God on earth to guide & instruct us on our way home. I am grateful for my family & that through the true gospel of Jesus Christ we can be together forever. We can be together even after this life. There is nothing more on this earth that I love than my wife & my son & I give thanks for them every morning & night as I pray. I want to be remembered as a loving & giving husband & father and one who was firm in his faith & true to his convictions. I can do this knowing I am a son of God & that he has a plan for me.

Why I am a Mormon

To know where I come from, especially that I am a child of God, and where I am going along with why I am here brings me great comfort. This is the true gospel of Christ, of that I am sure. A gospel that has been restored from the time that Christ walked the earth by a prophet of The Lord to prepare us for His Second Coming & return home to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am not a perfect man by any means. I do my best to treat others with the respect that I would wish to be given. Christ set a wonderful example of this throughout his life. Whether it be taking time for those in need or those in trouble, even if the laws were to shun them, or the way in which he cared for his mother. I have always been touched with the words He spoke to John on the cross before He died saying "Behold they mother" as to make sure she was looked after. I was given a good example of how to live a Christ like life by my mother and that of how to care for your family by my father. I try to emulate them in that regard to show my faith, and that I am a true follower of Christ.

What is the priesthood?

It is the authority to act in Gods name. It is a special power given to those worthy males 12 years of age or older. It is the power by which to heal, cast out evil spirits, and bless the lives of others. It is not for ones OWN gain but for the blessing of lives of those around you. Show more Show less
