Hi I'm Kurt Hunter

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Kurt Hunter and the most important thing to me is my family. I have a beautiful wife, Heidi, and together we have 5 wonderful children. Cole (15), Jackson (13), Samuel (10), London (6), and Beau (6mo). I played a lot of sports as a kid and now I enjoy watching my children in their sports. Cole plays soccer for the local High School and Jackson plays football and lacrosse for the community teams. Samuel is a soccer player on the rise and London loves dance and gymnastics. Beau just sits around and is lazy. I might be asking a bit to much of him at such a young age. I enjoy spending time with my wife together with the kids and also just the two of us on "date night". I think it is so important for our relationship to have time for just the two of us to have adult conversation and keep each other up to date with what is going on in our lives. I am a financial services professional working primarily with business owners and am facinated by each individual's story of how they got to where they are. I like to be around others and would call myself a people person.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints here in Littleton, Colorado. My parents were devout Mormons and instilled in me a belief that there is a God, that he is my Father in Heaven, and that he loves and cares about me. I learned that my Heavenly Father sent his son, Jesus Christ, to atone for my sins so that I could repent when I make mistakes and return and live with him again after this life. I learned that the gospel that Jesus Christ taught his desciples when he was on the earth has been restored in these times through a prophet. Joseph Smith was the prophet of the restoration and Christ's power and authority has been on the earth ever since. There will be a prophet of the Lord here among us until Jesus Christ returns. I learned these things at a very young age and they have helped me ever since. There came a time when I needed to have a confirmation of these things for myself. When I was a young man, maybe 14 or 15, I wanted to know for myself that the things I had been taught were true. I had always been taught to pray and so I prayed to know if everything I had been taught in my youth was true. I received a witness of the truth through the Holy Ghost that filled my heart with a feeling of peace and contentment. I have always looked for that feeling to help me ever since when I am looking for confirmation from my Heavenly Father. Since then, I have tried to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the restored truth and has a prophet today much like those of ancient times. I know that the Book of Mormon, along with the Bible, contains the words of these ancient prophets that are God's Eternal Truths and that by living in harmony with these teachings, I will be blessed. I will teach my family the truth that I have found and hope that they will seek a confirmation too. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day. I start my day with a prayer and ask my Heavenly Father to be with me that day and to bless my activities. I try to read from the scriptures daily too. That doesn't always happen but I am trying to get better. Some mornings I substitute teach the Seminary class at my church. High School aged young adults go to Seminary every weekday morning before school (6:30am) to learn more about their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This year they are studying the Old Testament and the mornings I get to teach are a cherished opportunity.  I live my faith every day in the decisions I try to make. I am not perfect and I make mistakes but I am trying to live a life patterned after the example Jesus Christ set. My family goes to church on Sunday and worships with our congragation. We try to keep the Sabath Day Holy by not participating in work duties, sporting events, shopping, or things that would require others to work. I am teaching my children to be honest and obey the laws of the land. We participate in community service and look to make a difference for good where we can. Living my faith makes me happy and I look forward to sharing what makes me happy with others.
