Hi I'm Scott

I grew up in Fullerton CA, and Sandy UT. I'm a 42 year old father of 4, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a father of 4 and have been married for 21 years. I love to fly fish, coach soccer, and outdoor activities like boating. I have a Master's degree in Computer Information Systems and enjoy my work as a program manager. My wife and I love to go to Hawaii on vacation, spending time with our kids, and serving in the community.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Even though I had a good childhood, I didn't always live the way I should. I was an inactive Mormon for most of my teenage years, but I always had something tugging at me. On my 18th birthday, I sat down and reflected my life and it was then that I had a desire to know what this life is all about. As I pondered over the next few weeks, I kept coming back to the Savior Jesus Christ. I fell to my knees to ask my Heavenly Father for direction and forgiveness for my disobedience as a youth. As I did this over the next few days, I had a clarity I never had before, I felt for the first time in years my Heavenly Father's love. Over the next few months I dove in and studied the Book of Mormon and took Moroni's challenge and prayed to know if it was true. I felt the Spirit testify that it is true. I know this gospel is true. If the Book of Mormon is True, so is the restoration that happened through authority given to Joseph Smith as a young man! My testimony is this... I know this gospel is true, I know that it was restored through Joseph Smith, Peter, James, and John apostles of old conferred the holy priesthood on Joseph Smith. I know that Jesus lives and that he atoned for each of our sins, and mortal pains. He was resurrected and because of that event, we to can be resurrected and live with our families and our Heavenly Father again. All we have to do is live the commandments and strive to do our best, and where we fall short, Christ's mercy will make up the rest. We have a prophet and apostles on the earth that lead and guide His church today. Thomas S. Monson is that prophet and he hold the keys to act in Christ's name. I believe this with my whole heart and sole. I say these things in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, amen!

How I live my faith

Because of my membership in this church, it has given me opportunities to serve my fellow men. I have spent many years with the youth and love them with all my heart. They are examples to me each and every day. I get the opportunity to visit those in my area as a Home Teacher and find great joy in leaving a message of love and peace each month. I currently serve as a leader to men over the age of 18 and love to serve the families in our area. It gives me the opportunity to proclaim the gospel and share in my saviors light. The best times in my life save my marriage to my wife, and the birth of my children have been in service to my fellow men because of my membership in God's church upon the earth. My God bless you in your life and may you feel His abounding love!
