Hi I'm Scott Richard Merrill

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City Utah. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

About Me

I love Yu-Gi-Oh! Magic the Gathering, computer games, and hanging out with my friends. I really love animals and the outdoors. Boy Scouts was a great time for me. I got my Venturing Silver Award, which is three times better than the Eagle Scout award. I am about to serve in the Washington D.C. South Mission on July 9, 2014. I do plan on going to college after my mission is over. I prefer going into Wildlife Biology, or Computer Science. I am the oldest of three children and am eighteen years old. I am not married at this time but will be soon.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I have seen, heard and felt more at peace and more of the Holy Ghost speaking to me. I have had more and more blessings come to pass when I needed them to be. I have learned about the prophecies of the Holy Scriptures and know they are coming to pass.

How I live my faith

I am an Elder and have been going home teaching with my partner. I have helped those in need when they needed me the most. I have expressed my feelings of the knowledge of the Gospel more often then I did before. I go to church every Sunday.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Scott Richard Merrill
I love what Jesus did for us all. He put himself in a position to take upon the sins of us all. There was no other who fit the bill. It brings us closer to our Heavenly Father in heaven. It is by the grace of our Redeemer who is Christ the son of the living God that we have an opportunity to return to live with him at the last day. Down on Earth we will and must obey, and Endure to the End. Show more Show less
