Hi I'm Scott

I'm now retired...kinda...still have the trucking business and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in AZ. Went to college. Got married. Had 6 kids. Started a title business. Sold it. Went on a business adventure to Canada. Suffered through a painful divorce. Worked in the non-profit sector as a planned giving professional. Took night classes for an MBA and eventually got my PHD. Remarried. Now we are a blended family of 9 kids, 15 grandkids... Nearing retirement, we started a family trucking business in the Bakken oil fields of North Dakota. Am now retired...except for the trucking business an am looking to pass that on to our sons.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I truly believe in my Savior, Jesus Christ; because I have seen His work among the members of the Church all my life. I've seen miracles occur. Each week, I partake of the Sacrament and renew my covenants with Him to bear his name, to always remember Him, and to keep His commandments. As I live His gospel and keep His commandments, I feel His peace. Life is good because of it. Don't get me wrong, I still have a whole boatload of problems and struggles. But, being able to pray to Him and know that He hears me and answers me is a wonderful tender mercy for which I am greatly appreciative. I testify of Jesus and His goodness to me, my family, and to you. He lives and loves us and wants only the best for us. He lived a perfect life and paid the ultimate price in atoning for my sins and for all our sins. His Atoning sacrifice enables Him to succor each of us in the extremity of our pain, loneliness, guilt, and hurt. I love Him and testify of Him

How I live my faith

I'm an active member of the Church and have been for all my life. So, I've had many different Church assignments/callings. Currently, my wife and I are responsible for the Addiction Recovery Program (ARP) in our area. We hold two group meetings a week for people suffering from addiction and one group meeting a week for family members and others suffering due to the impact the addictions of another person (a family member, friend, etc). This is difficult but rewarding work. The best part is when you see someone getting better and overcoming through the Grace of our Savior.
