Hi I'm Kurt

I grew up in Tempe, Arizona and survived the hot summers. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a great wife and father to two smart children. I went to college and I work as an electrical engineer. My current job is in designing radios that go into mobile phones, which I enjoy very much. I like music, fixing things, building things, and working on projects around the house.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon but I had to gain my own knowledge about the Mormon Church for myself. Many aspects of the church were a comfort to me growing up. I saw adults who lived the gospel compared to those who didn't and I noticed the difference. I knew that life would be difficult but it would be more so without following the Lord's plan of happiness. There was a time in my life that I felt that keeping the commandments and having to do all of this stuff made life more difficult for Mormons than non-Mormons. I no longer feel that way. The Lord's plan really is much better than what the world has to offer. In high school I gained a knowledge that the Book of Mormon was a real history and account of people long ago, and that it really did apply to the times that we live in today.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is really a daily occurrence; and with small things such as reading the scriptures, praying for help and guidance, and trying to remember positive things about my life and my family as I deal with the challenges of providing for my family. Attending church every Sunday is something I look forward to and not as a bother or burden. I definitely get more out than I put in. Meeting with other men and talking about how the church applies to us and our everyday lives is a tremendous support. I also serve in a non-paid capacity by helping to keep church records accurate and to help members and leaders with administrative work.
