Hi I'm Scott

Hi, My name is Scott. I'm currently in college studying Agriculture, I live in Texas, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently in school studying Agriculture. My family has a cotton farm and I plan to continue in that lifestyle. I served a two year mission to Sydney Australia and I loved it! I love playing sports and laughing with all of my friends. I also enjoy being outdoors. I love riding motorcycles, target shooting, and learning new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon, but I have chosen to stay one because I have seen the blessings that living the commandments has brought me, and I have felt the love that the Lord has for me as I've gone to Him in Prayer. As I served my mission, I saw the change in people as they came to know that this church is true. One of the biggest reasons I believe in this church's teachings is The Book of Mormon. I can't really describe just how much joy this book has brought me. Just like The Bible it teaches me what I need to do to become more like Jesus Christ and in reading it, I have come to know that The Book of Mormon is the word of God. Reading it has changed my life for the better, I love reading its pages and finding new things that I can do to improve myself to help others.

How I live my faith

I practice my faith by helping full time missionaries to teach others about the Gospel. I also help to lead a group of men in the church as we go to people's homes and strengthen member's faith in Christ and knowledge of His Plan. I try to do my best to always look for those who are interested in hearing about the church and love to get questions about it.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries share several unique messages, all of which are centered on Jesus Christ. They will share messages about God's plan of Salvation, which teaches us where we came from before this life, why we are here on Earth, and what will happen to us after we die. They will share a message about what things God has asked us to do so that we may return to live with him like having Faith, Repenting, being Baptized, receiving the Holy Ghost. And the most important message we share which talks about Christ restoring the church that He set up while He was on the Earth, but that was later lost. Show more Show less
