Hi I'm Scott Spencer Long

Someone's gotta be a Mormon... might as well be me right?

About Me

I was born in SLC, to a way nice time for a family. They are such a nice thing, and they are a knife time. I went to school for a semester before my mission. Now im on a mission. Cuz missions are way nice times! I enjoy hanging out with friends, playing sports, and I LOVE camping! Anything outdoors is me. I love just being outside. And laughing. about ridiculous things. And I do not mind spending a while on YouTube just to get a good kick out of a silly video.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is what makes me the most happy. I love having my friends in the church, and through the social aspect of the church, I was able to create awesome relationships with friends. The church has helped me over come trials, that of which I have had many. I lost my father when I was 13, and the church has given me the comfort and the knowledge that i will be able to see my father again, and that i will be able to live with him forever, along with the rest of my family and loved ones. The church has given me strength in times of need, and when I feel like I cannot do any more, the church finds its way into my life, and Christ makes up the rest. I love the church because of the knowledge and assurance that I gain from it. The church is centered around love, love is what makes up the church, and i LOVE that! Love is essential for everyone to be happy, and nowhere else is such love found, execpt within the walls of our own homes. The church is centered around families as well, and the church helps me to maintain incredible relationships with my family, and i grow closer to them every day! My family and friends are my number one priority. I love people. People in general, and i love getting to know new people and building friendships with everyone! I love my family!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing my faith. I am currently on a mission, and I am having such an amazing time sharing with other people, because I want them to feel the love of christ that I feel every day. I live my faith by doing all I can to follow the path that Christ has layed before me.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Scott Spencer Long
No! we do not worship joseph smith. the reason that we talk about him so much, was becasue he played a key factor in the restoration of the gospel of jesus christ. imagine if you will, a car, an old car from the 50's. Now imagine that you wanted to restore it. with all the original parts and the perfect appearance. this is exactly what jesus christ wanted to do with his gospel, or his car. So he got an incredible restorer (he chose joseph smith) to restore his gosepl. joseph smith was an instrument in the hands of the lord in order to bring to pass this great work. it was through joseph smith that god and his son jesus christ were able to once again establish truth here on the earth.
