Hi I'm Tricia Scott

I grew up in Essex, England. I am a mum, a grandmother, childcarer, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mum of seven who are all now grown up. I am a childminder and help to look after my grandchildren. I became a dressmaker when I left school and I love to paint and do crafts. Up until a few years ago I played in a netball league with two of my daughters. I like spending time with my family. I like badminton and I have just done an introductory course in rock climbing where I hope to take my grandchildren. I love to sing and I sing in a local choir.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe that this is Christ's true church here on the earth today. I sometimes try to imagine what my life would be like if I didn’t have The Lord in it and it is then I realise just how much a part of my life He is. I rely on Him daily in almost everything I do. I love my Heavenly Father with all my heart. I think of my own father and how much love he has for us. To me he is the nearest thing I have here on this earth to my Heavenly Father. I have an inkling of how much my Heavenly Father loves me. I can talk to my earthly father about anything, and I know also that I can talk to my Heavenly Father about anything and that he hears me.I find reassurance in knowing I can turn to Him any time I need comfort. I love my Saviour with all my heart and cannot comprehend how He suffered what He did for us because of the great love He has for us. My heart bursts with the knowledge that my big brother was prepared to do that for me so that I could return and live with Him again. I have brothers whom I love dearly and cannot imagine loving them more than I do now but I know that our Saviour has an even greater capacity for love. I want my Heavenly parents and my brother, The Lord Jesus Christ, to be proud of me. I want to feel the overwhelming joy of hearing them say to me “Welcome home, thou good and faithful servant.” The Lord has provided us with His church so that this will be possible for us. If we follow His commandments with every fibre of our being we will hear those words. I know I will make mistakes however hard I try not to, but I know that if I persevere I will, through His grace become a little more like my saviour each day. That is all He asks and I want so much to make Him happy and repay Him in every possible way. I don’t want to disappoint Him.

How I live my faith

I currently work with the youth, a calling which I love. I am mindful of the responsibility I have and try to be the best example that I can be. It is a privilege to watch them blossom and grow into amazing young women. I try to be of service wherever I can.
