Hi I'm Scott

I am a businessman and an investor, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a husband and father of five children. Our two daughters have graduated from university and one is working in public relations and attending graduate school, and our second daughter is working as a dental hygienist. Our eldest son is in medical school, our second son is studying business, and our third son is studying engineering. My wife is an avid horsewoman and we love to travel together, which is now even more important to us as most of our children live away from home.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the doctrine taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is supported by the scriptures and makes sense to me. Even more importantly, as I have read and studied the scriptures -- the Bible and the Book of Mormon - and as I have attended church meetings, I have prayed to God to know if the doctrine I have been taught is true and I have received the spiritual assurance that the doctrine is true and correct. With this spiritual confirmation, I have then done my best to live my life in accordance with the doctrine and to keep God's commandments. As I have done so, I have found that God has fulfilled every promise that he has made in the scriptures, which has given me further assurance that the doctrine and the commandments are true and correct. These experiences have been repeated so many times in my life that I know that they are not coincidences and that, in fact, God is there. He answers prayers and blesses us as we keep His commandments. I am so grateful for God, for His Son our Savior, and for the Holy Ghost that provides us with the spiritual guidance that we need to fulfill the potential that He has given us in this life.

How I live my faith

I have the responsibility to help families in our congregation when needs or challenges arise. I have the specific responsibility to assist others who need employment or are looking to upgrade their employment. It has been very gratifying to see several people I have worked with who were unemployed find rewarding jobs and careers that better enable them to support their families.
