Hi I'm Curtis

I'm a retired Marine. I love music and guitar. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Curtis and I'm retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. I'm married to a wonderful woman whom I joined the church with; I also have three beautiful daughters and ten awesome grandchildren. I really enjoy music; so much that I studied at the Berklee College of Music and completed a Master Certificate program in Guitar Performance. I love playing guitar, sharing music, and helping others learn music and guitar.

Why I am a Mormon

One day I was pulling into my driveway after a really long day at work and I saw my fiance speaking to two Sister missionaries. I was tired and had just stopped by the grocery store and was really in no mood to talk to anyone, especially missionaries. After I parked in the driveway, I took in part of the groceries through the garage and then came back out through the front door. The sister missionaries picked up very quickly that I did not want them there, so they prepared to leave, but as I went back out to the truck one of the sisters asked me "can we help you with your groceries?" I was astonished and could not believe what I'd heard - especially after the day I had just had… My demeanor immediately changed and I said to her, "No thank you, but that is the nicest thing anyone had said to me all day." We then spoke for a few minutes and they asked if they could come back sometime. I said of course... The next time the sisters came over, they asked us if we'd like to learn more. We said sure, so they gave us each a Book of Mormon and we started going through the lessons. We met many other members and were so surprised about how nice people were. The more we read The Book of Mormon, the more we came to know this church is true. A few months later we were married on a Friday (after being engaged for several years), then baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. I'm so very grateful for our missionaries and all of the peace and joy they have brought into my life

How I live my faith

I try to live my life in a manner that is supportive of my family, loved ones and friends. I find much joy in learning more about our Heavenly Father everyday and really enjoy sharing the Gospel with others.
