Hi I'm Scott

I was raised in Michigan, USA for most of my life. I served a mission for the church in the Utah, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My parents joined the church when I was 6. I gained my personal testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel when I was 14. I am married and have 11 children and 8 grandchildren. I served a mission for the church in Utah Salt Lake City Mission.. I worked in the jungles of Costa Rica and Panama for almost 2 years. I have 4 living siblings and one deceased. I love American football and hockey. I love to go out target practicing with my wife and boys.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 14, my young men's class was asked by our teacher to read the Book of Mormon and pray about it. I took the assignment to heart and read the Book of Mormon in only a few weeks. It was a cold winters day when I went out to fields behind our house. I knelt by fence and prayed to God about the Book of Mormon. I felt an almost indescribable feeling come over me of peace, comfort and goodness. And I felt warm all over. I knew at that moment that the Book of Mormon was true. No matter what has happened in my life since that day I have always known it was true and have never denied.it.

How I live my faith

I try to be politically active in my country trying to keep it a free and return it to the foundation of freedom that our founding fathers created. I go to church every Sunday and perform every calling (job) asked of me, by my local leaders, to the best of my abilities. I have taught Sunday School, primary (children Sunday School), been a young men's leader, a cub scout leader, boy scout leader, a clerk, a local missionary, and I am currently an Elder in the church.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

We proselyte to all the world so that everyone can have the opportunity to hear and accept the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
