Hi I'm Curtis Rackham

I grew up in a military family. I love to tell jokes and make people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors. I mountain bike, and camp, and hike. I enjoy doing triathlons. But swimming is my forte. I also love to cook. It's very relaxing, and when you share a meal with someone people really open up. I love getting to know people and getting to hear their stories. I love to tell stories about my life and my adventures. My family is the most important thing to me. I know that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we will be together forever!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church and I was very strong in the Gospel. After some bad decisions, I started to go down a road I didn't like. My testimony struggled for many years. I avoided doing the simple things, like reading my scriptures and praying, because I felt like I didn't need to do it. I always felt like I was better than that. I finally started to do the simple things, and for the first time in many years I felt the love of the Savior, Jesus Christ. I began to adjust the way I thought, the way I spoke, and the way I lived. For the first time in my life, I felt free. I know that following the simple instructions of the Gospel bring people closer to God, and He will help you feel free.

How I live my faith

I am serving a full-time mission in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania! Before that I was a home teacher. I loved to meet with those that I was assigned to visit. Those I visited with soon became my best friends because of the connection of the Spirit. I love to serve the Church becase I know that I am serving the Savior Jesus Christ. Being a missionary is such a blessing, but I know that when it ends, I will strive to serve others as much as I do now. I love the feeling that it gives me!
