Hi I'm Wyatt Curran

I grew up in Ione, California. I am an HR Consultant for a small company in Provo, Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town in California. I enjoyed all sports; playing baseball, basketball, and soccer throughout high school. My favorite sport to date is soccer. It is a sport I love to watch, play, and perhaps someday coach. I still play at least once a week in local leagues and try to stay in shape for it as well. I have just graduated from college with a business management degree, emphasizing in human resources and organizational behavior. Currently, I have a job as an HR Consultant for a small company in Utah that helps small/medium sized businesses with their HR practices. I have been married for just over 2 years, with one baby boy. He is 9 months old and very active. My wife and I love to watch movies together, visit sites, and enjoy time with friends and family. She loves reading, going on walks with our boy, and anything having to do with decorating our house. She could spend hours in any crafts store (which I participate from time to time).

Why I am a Mormon

For me, the choice is simple, I'm a member of the Church because it's true. Because it's true, the promises it gives to my family and my life are real. It is a powerful truth to me that my family can be together forever. Never have I had more happiness and love in my life since being married in the temple. It gives me a different connection and appreciation for what Christ did for me and what God wants me to become. My conversion came over time as a youth, I remember specific instances where I truly felt I was a child of God and he loved me. I remember when my grandmother died and I understood how real the truth that she would be reunited with my grandpa, long since passed, really was. I remember vividly an intense session of prayer to know of the Book or Mormon was true after I had finished it, and the feeling that I felt afterwords. To describe it in any words; my heart and mind felt as calm as an undisturbed stream of water. I felt compelled to share this with others, and live a life exactly as Jesus Christ would. It followed naturally an intense desire to serve my Savior wherever he called me to go. I needed to tell people Christ's Church has been restored and prophets walk the earth again. I was called to serve as a missionary in Uganda. My testimony of Christ and His power to forgive and change were solidified in Uganda. I saw people exercise more faith than I had ever seen in my life. I saw people's lives light up even in extreme poverty because they knew they were living how God would have them live. I know now, and will forever, that God's kindness will never depart from me. Christ's Atonement is for all men, everywhere. Christ lives, He died to provide all God's children the opportunity to return to Him. This gift is free to all who will accept Him and His teachings. I know this of myself, no matter what others think.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in simple ways now. My wife and I try to study the scriptures and pray each evening together. If we consistently do this, we find it is a great blessing of peace in our marriage, especially when things are busy. My wife teaches the young women in our ward and participates in activities with them each Wednesday to help them set goals for their development. I have three families that I visit each month with another member of the ward. We offer help to them, and leave the a short message to bring the Spirit of God into their home. It is a great way to meet people I might not have talked to otherwise, and the families we meet have another person to call on for help if they need it. At least 1 or 2 times per month, my wife and I also go serve in the temple. It is a great reminder of why we are here on this earth, and how much God is aware of our lives.
