Hi I'm Curtis DeYoung

"I'm a traveler, a ball player, and I love to make new friends with everyone and I'm a Mormon!"

About Me

I have moved 8 times to 6 different states. I love to be outside and play all kinds of sports. I love to travel with my family and go to a lot of different places and do a lot of different things. Rightnow im in sunny California serving a 2 year mission for the church and doing my best to make a lot of new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I find a sense of direction and a sense of peace being a member of this church. I'm a Mormon because I have a testimony of Christ and of his great love for me and for others. I know that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, but also the Savior of the world. I have felt the power of His sacrifice in my life and seen the effect it has in the lives of others as they accept Him and His gospel. I love the Book of Mormon and I feel closer to Christ and my Heavenly Father when I read it. The Book of Mormon is a great blessing in my life because it teaches me how God wants me to live. One day I hope to raise my family with the standards that this church has taught me so that my kids can come to understand and appreciate Jesus Christ and his love. I am a Mormon because I know this Church is Christ's"

How I live my faith

Simply, I live my faith by doing the best I can. I do a lot of service and love to help the people around me. I am a missionary for the church and spend my time talking to all kinds of different people and making new friends with those that I meet. I do my best to help people see that although I am a missionary I am just a normal guy, and I do my best to make the Gospel fun and exciting, because it is! If I just focus on living the best life I can then it makes it easy to live my faith. The pupose of the Gospel is to make us the best person we can be and enable us to have the best life possible.

Are Mormons Christians?

Curtis DeYoung
I know that Mormons are Christians because they are one and the same thing. He is our Lord and our Savior. We believe that it is only through Christ and His mercy that we can be saved. Our love for Christ leads us to live the way we do. We strive to live how Jesus did when he was on the earth and do our best the keep the commandments that he has given to the world. The Book of Mormon helps us to learn and understand more of those commandments and the things that he taught. It is simply another testimony of Him and of His divine role in God's Plan of Happiness.
