Hi I'm Scott

I'm married with children. I love cycling, hiking, camping and spending time outdoors with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in LA (Lower Alabama) by parents who converted to the church early in their marriage. In my youth I was a fearless skateboarder and an "outdoor adventurer" in general. My parents fostered in me a love of the outdoors and nature. I have been blessed to do the same for my family. Now I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, fishing and camping with my wife and children.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was raised in a LDS family, I was always encouraged to develop my own knowledge and testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My parents encouraged me to continue in their faith, but it was ultimately up to me. I did spend some time away from church, and couldn't help but notice that something was missing in my life. I tried to fill that void in various ways, but nothing seemed to make me whole. It wasn't until I met and fell in love with someone whom I felt I had known a lifetime, that I would realized what was missing. As she and I got to know each other, I was able to share with her the remnants of my testimony of Jesus Christ. This sparked her interest in the Gospel and, in turn, lit a fire in me that had not been lit in some time. As she learned of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I too, would be reminded of the invitation to come unto Christ. I'm thankful for His love for me and the Atonement that he made on our behalf so that I could overcome my challenges, be forgiven, and be able to feel the warmth of His love in my life. Our Savior's love for me is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a Registered Nurse by trade and am blessed to offer help, comfort, medical treatment and support to those who are suffering and in need. My experience serving in various church callings has strengthened my abilities to be more empathetic and understanding to the needs of my patients, family and friends. In addition to regular church attendance and participation, prayer and scripture study, I try to set aside time to do things together with my family. We love to laugh, work and play, and we try to eat meals together as often as opportunity allows. I also find joy in assisting the full time missionaries in their efforts to seek out and teach the Gospel to those who are searching.
