Hi I'm Courtney

I'm living life half blind, loving every minute of it, and I'm grateful to be a Mormon.

About Me

I work as a nurse in the operating room of a level 2 trauma hospital. It's a challenging job, but I thrive in stressful environments. I find my job provides me a unique opportunity to spread the love that Heavenly Father has for each of his children as I work one on one with each patient. I enjoy all things medical, and am so grateful for the miracle of my body. I'm a bookworm, a theater freak, and a ballroom dance die-hard. I'm a grammar Nazi, honest to a fault and I have a strange desire to always be on time. I dream of traveling the world, getting married for time and all eternity in the Provo City Center Temple, and having a handful of kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised LDS, and was very active throughout my childhood. I spent many months away from the church in my early twenties, not by choice, but by circumstance. The first Sunday I returned to church, I could not deny the feelings of love and comfort I felt in the chapel. It assured me that being a Mormon wasn't something I do because I was raised in the church, but someone I am because because it truly makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by staying true to myself, and listening to Heavenly Father's promptings. I know if I follow his lead, I will be happy, and hopefully show to the people around me that He loves them too.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

The most precious thing that we use the temple for, is sealing families together for time and all Eternity. My parents were married in the temple, and that means that I will have my family with me forever in Heaven. While death may physically part my family for some time, I will return to my Father in Heaven one day, and once again be reunited with the people I love most. I look forward to the day when I will go to the temple myself, with the love of my life, and get sealed to him for all Eternity. There's no 'till death do us part' in a temple marriage, and it's so comforting to know that our love will last forever. Show more Show less
