Hi I'm Courtney McBride

I'm a wife and student. I grew up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am newly married. I am also a student in college, going for a degree in English Education. I love to hike, cook, camp, fish, and enjoy a good book. I love watching movies when I can. I also hold a part time job making sandwiches and training new employees.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church but I don't believe I was truly converted until my Freshmen Year in college. My first semester was miserable and I didn't know why, until I moved to a new apartment. I realized that I wasn't going to church and had been slowly losing my testimony. My new roommates helped me by their examples and their wonderful spirit. I came to know that my Savior loves ME. I have a deep love for my Savior and my Heavenly Father and I can feel their love for me as I follow and keep the commandments and covenants I have made. I know that the blessing of grace has abounded in my life. I Know that the Book of Mormon is True! I gain so much from sincerely reading and studying its pages. I know that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. The words he speaks come from God. I know it. I can feel it every time I see a picture of our prophet. I know I am a Daughter of God and I want to do all I can for him. I know Joseph Smith was and is a true prophet who had the faith and courage to follow God's commands. I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church on Earth today, and I know that Jesus is the head of this church.

How I live my faith

With my busy schedule, I do my best to let those around me that I care. I ask them about their lives and happily listen to their stories. I do not have a calling in my ward yet, but I want to serve those around me to the best of my ability. I want them to know that I love them.
