Hi I'm Scott

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born into an LDS family and have been a member of the church all my life. I am now 67 years old. I served a full time mission in northern England during 1964-1966. I went to college at Utah State University and also to Colorado State University where I graduated in 1974 with a doctor of veterinary medicine degree in 1974. I married my wife Linda in 1971. We have 6 children and 3 grandchildren. I have an interest in music, especially classical trumpet. Although I played the trumpet in high school and college I am not a professional but enjoy trumpet music of all genres but especially classical and baroque.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I was born into a Mormon family. As I was taught the gospel from my youth up and as I served a mission and through my owner personal study and prayer I have gained a witness from the Holy Ghost that the church is true. I am still a Mormon because I know that this is Christ's true church, with the holy priesthood and all the ordinances that are necessary for me to enter back into the presence of Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I have served in many positions in the church in my lifetime. I am presently a Gospel Doctrine teacher in the Sunday School and I also work in the temple each week. I have been a stake missionary and ward mission leader and have a firm testimony of the gospel. I love the Book of Mormon and read it frequently.

What is the Law of Chastity?

This moral code has been a great blessing to me in this day of rampant immorality in the world. I have been married to the same woman for 46 years and have never desired to be unfaithful. That love and commitment is an anchor to me and I thank the Lord for the strength I receive from obedience to that law. Show more Show less
