Hi I'm Scott

I'm from L.A. origianlly, and a family of 11 children. I'm married, with 6 kids of my own now. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy golfing and playing the piano. I work in the HVAC industry, and recently became a grandfather!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Not all of my family are members, though. My older brother really doesn't care for the church, but we're still really close friends. He understands how much the gospel and my Savior Jesus Christ mean to me. Although he disagrees, he does respect me

How I live my faith

Being a member of the LDS church is part of who I am. I go to church each week, and I teach an early morning seminary class (Bible study). As we study the Old Testament this year, I try to stress to my students that all things testify or point towards Christ. We should try to live as he did - caring for those less fortunate, lifting up the hearts of those who feel alone, and becoming a light unto the world.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Nope. Those who have a strong desire to share the good news of the gospel will feel the need to volunteer. I served a mission (when I was 19-21), and my wife & I are anxious to serve a mission together as a couple after our children have grown. Show more Show less
