Hi I'm Kurtis

I grew up in California and Arizona. I am an Astronautical Engineering major. I enjoy going camping, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student majoring in Astronautical Engineering. I plan on being a commercial astronaut. I enjoy football and I absolutely love going camping and fishing when I have the time. I am recently married. We do not have any children yet but plan to sometime in the future. I love to write, and often write short stories just for fun in my spare time. I hope to publish fiction novels in the future. I also enjoy a small bit of video gaming with the small amount of free time I have.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church because it brings me so much happiness, more than I can express, and I absolutely know that it is the true church that Jesus Christ set up when he was on the Earth. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that Jesus Christ's true Church was restored by the prophet Joseph Smith after it was lost from the earth for thousands of years. I know that we have a prophet today who gains revelation from God and helps us to know exactly what we need to know and do to gain salvation. Not all of this came to me after a single prayer to God to know if it was true. I prayed time and time again, and after one particular powerful prayer, the Holy Ghost filled my body with such power that it felt like a massive shock of happiness and peace rushed through my body, filling my eyes with tears, my body with joy, and my heart with love. It is hard to explain how the feeling was, but it was there, and it was one of the most powerful and warm sensations I have ever experienced. I knew at that moment that the church was true.

How I live my faith

My calling is to help the missionaries find and teach people in the ward, and serve them in any way they need.
