Hi I'm Austin Scroggin

I grew up in Utah, however, neither of my parents are active and I have been called to serve in the Germany Berlin mission.

About Me

I just graduated from high school and I have been called to serve in the Germany Berlin mission leaving this summer. In high school I was a member of the track and cross country teams my junior and senior year. I competed in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles as well as the 4x400 relay. I went to the state meet this past year and placed 8th overall in the entire state. I really enjoy being active and participate in a lot of sports when I can. After I return home from my mission, I am planning on enrolling at Utah State University studying Mechanical Engineering. I love doing things with my hands and am very interested in the working of many things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is true and there is no place I would rather be. I have gone through some tough times, and this church has been a rock for me, un-moving and steady. I know that this gospel is the only way that we can truly be happy for all of eternity. I know that regardless of what I or anyone has done in the past, they can return to live with our Heavenly Father through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. I know that when we are down, our Heavenly does not want us to stay there for long, He puts us in places where we can grow and enjoy life, He puts people into our lives that will help us be happy. I know that this is true and have experienced it first hand.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being a contributing member of my ward family, I am currently the Priests Quorum Secretary, and am helping prepare my Quorum for missionary work. I myself will be serving a mission and want others to follow in my footsteps. I am very involved in the activities that my ward puts on and I go to as many as I can within my busy schedule. I live my life as an example of Jesus Christ and know that this is the best way to show your faith as an outward expression.
