Hi I'm Curtis

I grew up in Simi Valley, California. I love playing soccer and spending time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Curtis, I currently am going to college and looking to get a degree in sports medicine. I am the oldest of five children with a big responsibility of being a good example to all my younger siblings. I am going to serve a mission in Mexico for two years and I am super excited to serve the Lord! I love this church and I know its true.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this church is the true church! I live it and love it. I would like to share my testimony that I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and he loves each one of his children. I know that Jesus lives and that he suffered for my sins and that if I repent of my sins, I can be forgiven. I am eternally grateful for that. I would like to share a story. One night I come home after hanging out with my friends and my dad was sitting on the couch. I came in and then I asked my dad "Dad, how did you come to know this church was true?" He told me that he never actually had a awe inspiring moment like a lot of people know where they pray and they just know! I was totally shocked because I was having that same feeling. He told me that he knew this was the true church because he grew up in a righteous home where he and his family did everything the Lord asked them to do, at least to the best of their abilities. I could relate to him now as he has raised me in the same footsteps as his parents did. I know that every time I come to my house I know that I feel the spirit of the Lord. That in itself is a testimony to me that this is the true church. I went and prayed that night and felt a simple, warm, yet powerful feeling that this church is the true church. I love my family so much and I know that I am sealed to them and that I can be with them forever thanks to the blessings that come from the temple! The temples are an amazing place where the spirit of the Lord can dwell and they truly are the House of the Lord. I know that if I live a righteous life that I can live with my Heavenly Father again. I would like to say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have served as a teacher for children which we call primary. I got to teach kids from ages 8-9 about Christ and how he loves each and every one of us. I served the youth in my ward at church by being a president in the group. I love to visit families in their homes and give them lessons to bring them closer to our Heavenly Father and leave blessings in their home. I enjoy going to church every Sunday to worship my Heavenly Father and feeling his holy spirit. I love my family and I love this gospel!
