Hi I'm Scotty

I was raised in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I swim, and I love cars. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Scott. I'm from Clinton, Utah. Currently I'm serving as a missionary in Baltimore, Maryland. My life is always changing, but certain things stay the same. My faith, family, friends, and a sense of adventure. I have a super fly sister, and a genius brother. My dad is a pie maker, and my mom is a home maker. Together we get pretty intense, especially at a pool. I love to swim or play any game that involves a pool. I was on the high school team, and that's where I know most of my friends from. I'm always ready for an adventure with the crew. We go to the park, up the canyon, video-game it up, or just talk. Life is great!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it feels right. To me the teachings all make sense. My questions about where we fit into God's plan are answered on a daily basis. I have been taught and personally know that I'll see relatives who have passed away again. My family is the world to me, and we all have a common goal in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who doesn't want a united family? To me it just makes sense to search out the truth, ask the hard questions, and then follow what God tells you to do. That's what I've done with this faith that I was born into. And now I'm born again. It's blessed my life ever since.

How I live my faith

I live the Gospel by studying it every day. As a missionary I serve the Lord for two years by putting school and dating aside for 2 years to go and teach others about Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father's plan for us. I share the things that I believe as often as I can. For me, just saying I believe isn't enough. I try to practice the things that I believe. I fall short, but I try to pray and ask for forgiveness. Then I go to church every Sunday to renew promises I make with God to follow him. I serve in the community, and search for others who need help. When I was younger, I went with my dad to a few families on a monthly basis to offer support and encouragement. I believe in helping people one by one. I listen to the teachings of a modern prophet who guides us today. I also try to read the word of God. It's a hard habit to get into, but the rewards are priceless. Live it and love it!
