Hi I'm Scott Bringhurst

I grew up in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I now live in Lancaster, New York and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a wonderful wife of 20 years. I am a father to three amazing sons. One son is currently serving a Mormon mission in Carlsbad, California. I am a second career, midlife guy currently attending nursing school. I anticipate graduating in 2015 and begin working as an RN. I love to garden, hike, camp, and run. I started running 2 years ago and have completed 2 marathons and have ran almost 1,000 miles.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon by birth, but a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints by choice. I come from a long line of members of the Church. Some of my ancestors were some of the first settlers of Las Vegas! I am extremely proud and humbled by the sacrifices made by my ancestors so that I could be born into such a wonderful life. The Church offers me peace in a chaotic world. As a combat veteran of the United States Army, I often sought out the Church no matter where in the world I was for the peace and comfort I have in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know without a doubt that this Church is true. I have had personal witness to the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know I am a child of God and that my older brother, Jesus Christ died so that I may return back to my Father in Heaven. I know that I will be together forever with my family!

How I live my faith

I am very active in our small ward here in New York. I was taught service at a very young age and have continued to serve. I am the Executive Secretary for our ward. It keeps me very busy helping our leadership stay organized as they met the needs of our wonderful members. All those who know me, know that I am a Mormon and that it is more than a church to me. It is my life. I cannot imagine not living a life without the Church in my life.
