Hi I'm Courteney

I am from Idaho where I grew up on a ranch and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I grew up in Eastern Idaho on a Guest Ranch. I grew up in the church and I had the opportunity to serve a mission in Richmond Virginia where I learned to speak spanish. I enjoy running and I recently bought a bike that I am hoping to use a lot. I have been married for 2 years and we both enjoy spening time in the outdoors. I have a BS degree in Health Science. I hope to some day be a certified dietition.

Why I am a Mormon

First of all I am a mormon because I was born into a Mormon family, but I will always be a mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ is true and I will never be happy unless I am living the gospel. I can't even imagine not having the gospel. I loved my mission because I was able to help others find a purpose in their lives. It was an amazing experience to see the change in peoples lives and how much happier they are with the knowledge they find through the restored church. I may not know what its like not to have the gospel in my life but I know a lot of people who didn't use to have the gopsel and I can see the difference the gospel has made in their lives.

How I live my faith

 My calling in the church is cub scout leader. My husband and I help the cub scouts reach their achievments and advance to boy scouts. I am also a visiting teacher where I visit other women in the ward and make sure that everything is going okay with them. It is fun to have callings and to serve others. The saying "what goes around comes around" is very true in the church because we all serve each other!

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

 Our bodies are very important because they have been given to us from our Heavenly Father. When we are ressurected we will be given these same bodies. When we take care of our bodies we show our respect for them and we are better able to feel the spirit. There are so many easy things we can do to take care of our bodies and we feel so much better when we do them. Our spirit and physical bodies are closely related. Our bodies are called temples because they house our spirit just like we go to the temple to feel the spirit. We should treat our bodies with the same respect that we use for the temples.
