Hi I'm Scott

I grew up in Idaho, I am a graphic designer and photographer with four kids and a wife and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the father of 4 beautiful children and was married in the temple to my wife of 15 years. We have worked hard to make it possible for her to stay home with the children and I am the primary income earner. We have made sacrifices to ensure that our children are raised by us and not by the world. I work as a creative professional in the power-sports industry as a designer and photographer. I also run my own design and photography business on the side. I love camping, photography, outdoors, hiking and recreational shooting. I love being a citizen of the United States and feel blessed to have been born in this country. I strive to protect the freedoms God has given us here and am passionate about defending the Constitution.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church by parents with testimonies of the gospel and in Jesus Christ and was baptized at 8 years old. I attended church my whole life (though we did skip Stake and General conferences - hey no one's perfect). I did reach a time in my life where I started to feel I wanted nothing to do with the church (or any organization that wanted to tell me what I could and couldn't do). I made decisions after graduating high school that could have possibly sent me down the wrong road with no way to turn around. I had an experience that was pivotal for me. I had decided to move out and live with a highly cynical anti-religious co-worker to get away from my parents. On my way over to this man's house, while carrying my last load of belongings, I was stopped at a red light. What happened next is burned into my memory. I didn't see anything but my body and mind reacted as if an angel of God placed himself in front of my vehicle and spoke to me with all the authority of God, Scott: turn this car around and serve a mission or you will never recover spiritually from this decision. You are on the wrong road. The message was received as if God himself had delivered it. I obeyed and turned my car around. I served a mission and I grew more mentally and spiritually in those two years that I likely would have in my entire life on the wrong road. God cares for us and he does intercede when we're being particularly pig-headed. :-)

How I live my faith

I have served in many capacities in the church including serving a full-time mission in Fresno, California. I have served as Scout Master, Ward Mission Leader, Sunday School Teacher and I am currently on the High Council in our Stake. As I write this I am currently writing a talk that I will be giving in a ward in our stake tomorrow on the Sabbath.
