Hi I'm Scott

I love learning new things, eating ice-cream and Thai food, and spending time with my wife and daughter. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I were recently blessed with a daughter, our first. This has been a life-changing event in many ways! While we may not get as much sleep as we would like, we absolutely love being parents and would be hard-pressed to find another pursuit of equal importance. My wife and I enjoy spending time together--eating and cooking delicious food, reading books, and visiting new places.

Why I am a Mormon

For me, life is about changing for the better. I am a Mormon because of the positive changes that have come into my life as I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. By developing faith in Christ and repenting from past mistakes, I have developed into a better person. I know that through Christ's grace, I can continue to make the changes necessary to become perfect. Modern-day prophets, scriptures, prayer, and personal revelation all play a significant role in helping me to understand how I can improve.

How I live my faith

I am far from perfect, but do what I can to live my faith each day. I try to study my scriptures and pray each morning before heading to work and then look for opportunities to serve others. Additionally, I work with the full-time missionaries in our church, making sure they have what they need to do their work.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Absolutely not. As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we only worship Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Similar to individuals like the Apostle Paul, Isaiah, and Jeremiah, we respect Joseph Smith for the work he performed while living, and we study his teachings. But only through the divine plan created by Heavenly Father and the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ can we be made clean and return to live with God. For this reason, we only worship Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
