Hi I'm Von Alvin Scholes

I grew up in Idaho. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a senior citizen, serving a mission with my wife in the Tennessee Nashville Mission. We have 5 sons and a daughter, with 8 grandchildren. I served a mission in my youth and served in the US Navy. I have lived in Idaho, Washington, Hawaii and California. I have been a Scout Leader and a coach for my son's Special Olympics' teams.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, sometimes referred to as the Mormon Church. But I was converted to the Mormon Church as a young man after reading the Book of Mormon, praying about it and receiving a answer that it is the word of God. I felt the warmth of the Holy Ghost telling of it's truth. I love the Plan of Happiness that God has for me as I do I can to serve others that are children of our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I have faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ. I attend my Sunday meetings to learn more about what I can do to be more like Him. I serve him by visiting other members to learn what needs that have and what I or what others can do to serve their needs.
