Hi I'm Curtis

I live on a farm in Wyoming. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I live on the farm where I grew up. We raise vegetables, herbs, flowers, eggs and various animals. All our kids are gone from home so we spend most of our time working on the farm.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ adds richness and purpose to my life. It helps me to understand God's love for his children and His desire for us to live happy, productive lives. It teaches me about the true nature of God and the significance of the sacrifice of His Son in our behalf.

How I live my faith

I serve as a missionary in my community. I help the young missionaries that we have serving here from various part of the world. They are eager to teach people about the gospel and I try and help them find people that are interested in learning more.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Curtis
Another important part of this earth life is to gain experience. In doing so we make mistakes and sin. The scriptures teach us that no unclean thing can enter into the kingdom of heaven, so we need help becoming clean again. Christ is our only hope of that. Also, we are all mortal, meaning we will all die. Christ has overcome death through the resurrection so we will all live again. Show more Show less
