Hi I'm Curtis

I grew up in Utah. I love to visit and just talk with people. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am now graduated from high school and waiting to serve my mission. While I was in high school, I took a college course in physical therapy. I love to play basketball, listen to music, and do anything that requires moving around.

Why I am a Mormon

I feel like I have been a really lucky person. I have grown up in the Mormon (LDS) Church my whole life, and have been blessed with such wonderful parents that teach me very well how I can be happy. They are always there for me even when I go through problems that I feel may be too hard for me. I know that there are people out there that are having a much harder time than me in their life. I have had many things happen to me and made many mistakes. But ever since middle school my life has been really hard, especially with mistakes that I made. Everyone makes mistakes, I know that, but still there were some things that I did that I wish I never had done. I felt guilty, sad, mad, so many emotions that I kept bottled up, which began to show in my outer appearance. Many times through my school years, I have almost changed, but then went back to my old ways. But as I have read my scriptures, prayed, and lived the standards of the church. I could see a change in my life. And I liked this change because I was becoming a happier person. I began to make a better impact on other peoples lives because I was happier. I began to care less about myself, and more for others. I know that for myself that God has a plan specifically for me. I know that God loves each and everyone of his children, which is everyone on earth. And he wants all of them to return him, and to be with him again. I know that Christ suffered for us, and felt all of our pains, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. He felt everything that we have felt, and he wants us to be happy. I know that God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared unto Joseph Smith, so that the fullness of the Gospel can be restored to the world. So that it can be possible for all of us to return our Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ in heaven. These things I testify in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

Even though I consider myself a shy guy, I love to talk with other people. To get to know them and their life and life style. And along with talking with people, I love to help people with their problems that they may be having. I just want everyone and anyone who is feeling down and having a hard time, I just want them to talk with me so I can see if I can help by listening to their problems. That is why i love to go and home teach, which I wish that I could do that more. Some families I feel really benefit from lessons from home teachers.
