Hi I'm Curtis

I lived in Japan as a kid and have lived in Michigan, Utah, New York and California. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have five children, two girls and three boys. I have three grandsons. I am a CPA by training, but have spent most of my career in various capacities dealing with computer software. I love to coach youth sports teams. My family has always been avid campers and hikers. Someday I would like to backpack from Yosemite Valley to the top of Mt. Whitney in California.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I have a testimony of His divinity as the Son of God, His boundless love for me and all of mankind. It is comforting to know that He continues to speak to us today through a living prophet and recorded scriptures to prophets of former times.

How I live my faith

Taking the opportunity to teach others about the Savior and His love for them is a true joy. I have had opportunities for the past several years to work in leadership capacities with local church units to teach and lead others, particularly young men and women, back to Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

A fundamental principle of the Gospel was taught by a Book of Mormon prophet, King Benjamin, "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God" (Mosiah 2:17). Accordingly, church members strive to be of service to one another, to their communities and to others throughout the world. The Church's humanitarian relief efforts are extensive and serve many people around the world who are not of our faith.
