Hi I'm Isaac Scott

I am currently attending college at BYU-I, I am studying Automotive Technology and Business Management.

About Me

I grew up in Minnesota, but since I have served a mission in Paraguay, worked a summer in Alaska, and currently attend college in Idaho. I like doing anything that keeps me moving and outdoors, but what love best would be backpacking, soccer and snowboarding. I also enjoy fixing or building things especially cars. I am quite musically impaired, but I like to listen to those who are not. My family is important to me, I have five siblings a sister in-law, and of course my parents. We always keep in close contact and have a lot of fun when ever we are all together. I like to serve and help others, one way I enjoy doing this is through the National Guard. Freedom and country mean a lot to mean as well, my brother and I started the Old Glory 10K Run trying to raise patriotism and civil awareness. After graduation I Hope to go to flight school with the National Guard and open my own auto shop and later an outdoor sports store.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon not because I was born to Mormon parents, but I am Mormon because I know for myself that we have a Heavenly Father and that he loves us, to save us from our short comings we have a Savior, Jesus Christ, and to help us achieve happiness in this life and prepare ourselves to return to their presence we have the Gospel. Through out the history of the Earth Prophets were called, to receive teaching from our Heavenly Father and Christ and then teach them to us. They still love us today, so they still call prophets to guide us today. I have gained a testimony for myself that the current prophet, Thomas S. Monson is a prophet called of God, and that Joseph Smith was as well. The Book of Mormon is a strong witness of this, but only through prayer can we know for sure, and the Spirit has made it known to me that all this is true. This testimony came over time, as a result of searching, praying and living the gospel. I can feel our heavenly Fathers love for us and I know this is His chosen way, through personal experiences I know the joy of living the gospel, and the struggle that come from deviating. The gospel brings so much comfort into our lives, in my life personally, it feels great to know I can correct my wrongs and become better and be free from that guilt. Also knowing I can be with my family again after this life is huge blessing. My mother passed away when I was younger, knowing I can see her again and that our lives are not pointless, makes it much easier to carry on. I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ for this blessing.

How I live my faith

I try to live my what I believe in everything I do and to share what I know when ever someone is open to hearing it. Where I work I am often the "oddball" because I am Mormon, just because they way I live, the language I use, the things I talk about or do, and even the outlook I have on life. As I stick to my standards, and this attracts attention and questions, as I try to be the best I can I get the opportunity to share the gospel and encourage others to do the same. At church I teach lessons during meetings and make visits to members to help them best I can. I volunteer for service opportunities through the church, or find my own ways to serve.
