Hi I'm Scott McIntyre

The Mormon life is not only for me, it's for everyone! I am currently serving in the Missouri St. Louis Mission!

About Me

I love playing sports. I have grown up playing basketball and started playing football when I was about 15 years old. I love to be outside and hike and fish and camp.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this statement! I love being a Mormon! I grew up in the church with my family and going to church was just what we did. As I got into my teen years I still went to church and youth activities but wants to go my own path and experience life. Halfway through my senior year I decided to serve a mission and left the Fall of 2013. 6 weeks in I returned home. I was out for the wrong reasons and had no testimony of the Gospel or the scriptures. After awhile, I found myself caught up in the same stuff of my high school days and began to be angry at the world, my family, and anything that I could. I thought I was happy. I wasn't. I was lost and was finding any excuse to blame others, when I was the one self destructing and digging myself a deeper hole. About the beginning of 2015, God began to show me that He is there. There were too many instances where I should not have gotten away with, but God was there. He slowly began to work through people to guide me to where He needed me to be. I became active in the church again and was so much happier about who I was and how God sees me. I returned to the mission field in January of 2016 and have loved every minute of it. I know that Jesus Christ suffered and died for me. His atoning sacrifice is available to all those who want to change. And because of Him, we can change. I have seen it in myself and many others. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It is God's expression of His love for us by calling a modern day Prophet just as He called a Prophet in ancient times. They are to teach and preach of Jesus Christ and how we can return to live with God again after this life. Jesus is the Christ. Thomas S. Monson is the Prophet of the Earth today. Joseph Smith was chosen and called by God to restore Jesus Christ's Church on the Earth. You can know of this yourself as I do, if you read and pray about the Book or Mormon with real intent and willing to act upon the answer that Heavenly Father gives you.

How I live my faith

I have been taught and learned for myself to emulate the life of Jesus Christ. He loved, served and lifted those in His sphere of influence.
