Hi I'm Curtis!

I'm an actor, a sibling-wrestler, I have mad banjo skills, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Texas Fort Worth Mission! I'm a theatre major, and once my mission is over, I'll go back to school to complete my degree. I like the outdoors, hiking, fishing, exploring, wilderness survival, and other such activities. I write plays, and I love to perform! I'm not a husband or a father... yet. But I plan on being both some day. My cheeks are REALLY red. Why? I don't really know. My guess is it's a superpower, but reason says otherwise. That's okay. Red cheeks is a dumb superpower anyways. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I am a Mormon because God revealed through the Holy Ghost that Joseph Smith was a prophet and the Book of Mormon is the word of God. If God told you that a church is true, wouldn't YOU join it? That's what I did!

How I live my faith

 I try to live the way that Chirst Himself taught us to live. He laid the perfect example, so I'm trying to follow in his footsteps. Right now, I devote all of my time and energy to serving him. My purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ by helping them recieve the Restored Gospel through Faith in Jesus Christ and his Atonement, Repentance, Baptism, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. As I do so, I know that I am doing God's will here on earth. 

Are Mormons Christians?

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Curtis!
You can't drive a car without keys. The Priesthood authority was Restored through the prophet Joseph Smith to "drive the car" if you will. The Priesthood is the authority to act in God's name. It is the same authority that the apostles and prophets used to heal the sick and perform miracles in the Bible. It was restored in our day to heal the sick and perform miracles To utilize the teachings in the Bible. Show more Show less

Why don’t Mormons have paid clergy?

Curtis!
Why didn't Jesus Christ get paid? Why didn't the Apostles get paid? Service in the Church isn't about money. Even being called as a teacher in the church isn't about money. The church is led by revelation from Jesus Christ, and the clergy doesn't need to line their pockets with tithes. Tithing goes to pay for the church. To pay the utility bills, to serve the poor, to build new buildings, NEVER to pay the preacher.  Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Curtis!
The Book of Mormon was written by prophets who lived in the Americas long ago. They knew God, they received revelation for the people who lived here, and they testified of the coming of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon is the record of the people and these teachings, just like the Bible! Show more Show less

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Curtis!
They're AWESOME! Men and women are completely equal. No man is superior to any woman, and no woman is superior to any man. Show more Show less
