Hi I'm Scott Dale Robison

I grew up in Texas, I'm a software engineer and occasional radio host, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy writing computer software. It is both career and hobby. I have worked in radio in the past, both as a DJ and as a talk show host. I record the occasional YouTube video for fun as a creative outlet since I'm not working in radio at this time. I enjoy playing games with friends and family, and watching probably too much TV.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church when I was a very young child. I've never been a member of any other church, but this does not mean I do not have my own conversion story. I was taught the gospel at home and at church growing up, but just accepted things without giving them much thought. This continued until my mother passed away when I was 24 years old. That was my motivation to really try to learn for myself what it meant to be a member of this church, what it meant to accept the gospel of Jesus Christ and to be a disciple. I spoke with my local leadership and was given assignments of books to read (in addition to scripture study). The one that spoke most to me was "Believing Christ" by Stephen E. Robinson. It was after reading that book and praying that I first felt the Holy Ghost testify to me that the gospel was true. I am far from being a perfect man, and there are still many things I need to learn and do to be a better disciple. Regardless, I cannot deny my testimony of the gospel of Christ as taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Knowledge that there is a plan, a way for all of God's children to return to Him one day (even those who lived without ever hearing the gospel message in this life). Knowledge that kingdoms of glory are available to all of us despite our flaws and imperfections. Knowledge that prophets are not just relics of the past, that they are called even today to provide guidance and counsel and revelation. These things make sense to me. A loving Heavenly Father would not condemn any of His children to hell because of circumstances over which they had no control. He would expect us to learn and grow and improve, and would give us opportunities to do so, not leave us to stagnate or atrophy spiritually. By and through the atonement of Jesus Christ, we can be redeemed from our sins and return to live with our Heavenly Father and our families for the eternities. I testify of this in the name of the savior Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have been teaching classes at church for almost four years now, about 30 months as a youth Sunday School instructor and the rest for adults. I keep in touch with people in the congregation to see if there is anything I can help them with, and most importantly try to be their friends. I often bear my testimony of things I know to be true, both within my congregation and in the world at large, in person and online.
