Hi I'm Kutter

I grew up in Boise, ID. I went to a medically oriented high school and I participate in tennis and cross country. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I went to Meridian Medical Arts Charter High School. I am currently preparing to serve as a missionary in the Alpenländische mission. I grew up in a family of 6. I had my dad, Brad; my mom, Charity; my sisters, Avy, Alexa, and Alyssa; and me. I am the oldest of my siblings. One summer I went to work in Texas. I came back the Saturday before my senior year started to find out that I had two more brothers that my family had adopted. Their names are Forest and River.

Why I am a Mormon

It is normal to have questions about our religion. I have even had questions about it. It was until I heard the talk in General Conference that told me to doubt my doubts before I doubt my faith. With that, I have gone to the proper people for my questions. I went to my bishop and just asked him about my questions. I was given a simple statement. He asked me, "Kutter, do you believe in Joseph Smith, that he translated the gold plates and do you believe in the Book of Mormon?" I told my bishop that I did. He then told me, "Kutter, everything in the gospel always comes back to those two things. They are the basics of the gospel." As soon as I took my previous knowledge that my Father in Heaven loves me, I applied it to my life. My knowledge and understanding of the gospel took leaps and bounds. This is all because my Father in Heaven loves me. He loves me enough that He wants me to return to Him. He loves me enough to give me a plan to become like Him. He loves me so much, that He sent His son, Jesus Christ, to die for me, you, and everyone in the world to atone for our sins. He loves me, He loves you, He loves everyone. It is because we are all His children.

How I live my faith

I do a lot of community service. I also tend to help out with families in need in a lot of manual labor. I help with lawn mowing, tree trimming, and weed pulling, along with moving, and unpacking of families who move into our neighborhood. I visit a lot of the elderly people at retirement homes, and I visit people who are sick.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

I would like for you to ponder this for a little bit... Think of your family. Ask yourself if you truly love your family. What happens to your family after you die? Will you stay together? Families in the Mormon religion are: 1. Eternal. We can be with each other after we die and are in the spirit world. 2. Sacred. Because the family is the strongest unit known in the world, the Adversary will willingly attack the family because he knows of the sacredness of it. Families are the perfect place for the gospel to grow. Families can be as special as the temple is. Because we spend so much time with our families, it is the perfect place to learn and grow and gain life experiences! Show more Show less
