About Me

I went to the Church College in Hawai'i. My career is now that of a High School Photography Teacher in Utah. I am an avid outdoor enthusiast, surfing, hiking, sports, etc. I love art and experiencing a colourful world of adventure.

Why I am a Mormon

I belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I know it's Jesus' Church. There are many churches out there and good things you could be doing, but Jesus is more than that. He wants us to not be confused so he's given us his Church again with his Word. The Book of Mormon proves Jesus is alive and continues to speak to us. He is more than simply a name in the Bible, He is my brother, He is your brother.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good Christian and to serve and do good to everyone around. There are people everywhere that need us to slow down and listen and care. Church basketball has always been a fun and uplifting activity. We do many fun things in the church like ice skating and little dessert parties together. It's important to meet together and share the positive. Church every Sunday is the best. We get to socialize as well as study the word. I always take notes on impressions and ideas that I get each Sunday on how to better my life and help others.

What is faith?

John Courtright
Faith is believing in God and showing it through your actions, thoughts, and words. The Book of Mormon and the Bible help us come to know God and Jesus Christ more. It's up to us to put His Word into practice. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

John Courtright
Heaven would not be Heaven without families. Our Heavenly Father wants us to have joy and create families that will last forever through his son Jesus Christ. Jesus said through Paul and others : Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord. 1 Cor. 11: 11 Show more Show less
