Hi I'm Courtlyn

I'm a daughter, I'm a sister, I'm a missionary, I'm a friend. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a full-time missionary called to serve in the Tacoma Washington mission. I am the middle child in my family with two older brothers and two younger sisters. I have the best two sisters-in-law and the cutest nephew on the planet. My family is one of the most important things to me. I love them more than I love myself and would do anything for them. The other most important thing in my life is this gospel and this church. I know that without it I am nothing and with it I can be with my family forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that my Father in heaven lives. I know that His gospel is the true gospel. I also know that the Book of Mormon is true. I follow Christ because I know that he loves me and cares for me. He has always been there for me in times that are tough. He is always there to bring me peace. I love my Father in heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ. I know that I am who I am because of His gospel. I know that He will help me do what is right in times when I am challenged. I also know that He will help me during the times that are hardest in my life. The gospel means everything to me. I don't know who I'd be or what I'd do without it. I am so grateful for my parents who have raised me to know the truth and to do what is right. I am thankful for my family for the great examples the are to me. I am also very grateful for my friends who always help me no matter what. I am grateful for my Father and heaven and for Jesus Christ and for the love they have shown me. I know that missionary work is the most important thing I can be doing and I just want to help others find the love of Christ that I have found and find the happiness that comes from that knowledge.

How I live my faith

Right now I am sacrificing 18 months of my life for the best work out there, and that is to bring others to Christ. I always try to remember all the wonderful things God has given me and try to obey Him by reading the scriptures and praying daily. I think one of the biggest things I do is to never lose hope and to encourage others to do the same.
