Hi I'm Scott

I'm a husband and a father. I have found the real source of peace and happiness in life. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a business finance professional with an MBA degree who also enjoys working in project management and information systems. I love being a dad and being with my family. My style is to keep things simple and not go through life at a crazy pace. I served as a missionary in Russia where I helped establish the first congregations in Siberia.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and baptized at age eight. My parents set a wonderful example of service and dedication, but ultimately we need to stand on our own. I began to gain a deeper appreciation and testimony of the truthfulness of this Church when I attended seminary during high school. I also had an experience at a summer leadership camp that helped me develop a strong commitment to serve as a missionary and have a real testimony of prophets. Now many years later I have had so many spiritual experiences that I could no way deny the fulness of the blessings that are available through membership in this Church. The happiest times in my life have been when I'm firmly planted in the straight path that leads back to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as the bishop or congregational leader for about 500 people. Being a quiet and reserved person, I would not have sought out such a position. This responsibility came by an invitation from the Lord through one of His servants. I do love my Heavenly Father and recognize his many blessings in my life. Jesus Christ, the Savior, has personally helped me throughout many experience in this life such a I feel an eternal duty and responsibility to serve them and my fellow men. I have no other motivation than to feel the peace in my life that comes from dedicated service.
