Hi I'm Kurtis

I grew up in Salt Lake. I played high school basketball & soccer. I'm going to serve a mission in Lyon, France. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports! I played basketball and soccer in high school, and I love to play any other sports as well - golf, volleyball, literally ANY sport. I enjoy any outdoor activity as well - hiking, camping, etc. Inside, I enjoy board games and I love to go to the movies. I love food, especially sushi! I can eat sushi for the rest of my life! I love vacations, especially the beach; I can spend all day long at the beach.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church. I don't know where I would be if I didn't have the true church of Jesus Christ. I would not have had the friends I have today, the experiences in my life that have led to the person I am today, and the joy that I have. Some things may seem strict and hard at times, but I have realized over time that the standards of the church are what actually make me happy and I have realized that if I continue to keep them that I will find more joy in my life. Jesus Christ is my Savior, as well as each person's Savior. I know for a fact that He loves me and that the things that I go through in this life He will be right there next to me helping me. I am a Mormon because I am happy and I know in my heart that this is the true church. Jesus Christ is the center of the church and He has been there for me when I need Him, which is always, but I know that He is there for every single person if you just ask Him to show the comfort you need.

How I live my faith

In my community, I love to be involved. In high school, I was involved in the National Honor's Society - visiting the local nursing home was my favorite because I love funny old people. In my church youth group, I have held most leadership positions. I loved going on activities with my friends! I am an eagle scout, and proud to have achieved this goal.

Why are Mormons asked to donate 10% of their income to their Church?

Because God has asked and commanded us to do so. Show more Show less
