Hi I'm Curtis

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy mountain biking, hiking, camping, fishing, and the outdoors. I enjoy soccer, volleyball, and many other sports. I love spending time with my wife and beautiful children.

Why I am a Mormon

My ancestors knew and loved Joseph Smith, they loved the Lord and sacrificed everything to keep the commandments of God. They have passed on a heritage of faith to me and I am simply walking in their footsteps. I have many personal experiences that have built my testimony that the Lord approves of my decision to remain a Mormon. My family and I are stronger and are closer when we follow the living prophets.

How I live my faith

I live my faith one day at a time, one decision at a time. When I was baptized I put away my will and agreed to take upon me the name of Christ. I promised to mourn with those who mourn and comfort those who stand in need of comfort. By listening to the still small voice or Holy Ghost, I am led safely along the path of righteousness. I am not perfect and I falter many times, however, I am able to weekly partake of the sacrament of our Lord and renew the covenant I made at baptism. As I take the bread and water of the Lord's sacrament, I am cleansed from my sins.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Curtis
I definitely believe there is a prophet alive today. One day I was late for work and I was waiting for a traffic light. I was ready to speed off when the light turned green, however, as I looked over at the person in the car next to me, I realized he was Thomas S. Monson. I decided not to race off in a cloud of smoke, but drove at the speed limit. I was impressed that he kept just below the speed limit. He was smiling and having a great conversation with those in the car. He is an inspiration to me. I love him for his example of love and service. Show more Show less

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

Curtis
As a Mormon, I don't drink alcohol, tea, or coffee. I don't smoke or take any habit-forming drugs. In this way, I am the master of my body and spirit. I am not captive to addictive substances. My body is a gift from God. He wants me to keep it healthy and strong. If I am to be an instrument in his hands, I want to do all I can to keep my physical abilities ready for his command. Although I can't control everything that happens to me physically, I do my best to stay healthy. Show more Show less
