Hi I'm Courtney

I've grown up in the United States-- in the south. I jump rope, play volleyball, and ride horses. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a competitive jump roper, a college student, and a Mormon. I have traveled all of the world to compete and teach jump rope. I have spent countless hours in a gym practicing and won gold medals at the national and world level as a jump roper. However, my first love is my Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have felt of its truthfulness through the Holy Ghost. I have seen how it has blessed my life and the life of my family in numerous ways. Learning about Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, has brought guidance, purpose, love, and second chances to my life. I know that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he loves us so very much. Heavenly Father loves us so much that he sent his only Begotten to Atone for our sins. He suffered for every pain, every weakness, and every transgression in the Garden of Gethsemane in order to know how to succor us and love us more and allow us to repent and live with our Heavenly Father again. I know that he was resurrected so that we too can live again. I know that we once lived with our Heavenly Father in the pre-mortal realm. We were sent down here to gain a body and experience trials and tribulations and learn to become more like him so that we can experience the ultimate happiness of living with him in the Celestial Kingdom. The way to do that is to keep his commandments and make and keep covenants with him in this life. I know that we have a prophet on this Earth today just as there were prophets in the Old Testament times. I know that we can live again with our families.

How I live my faith

I know that my Heavenly Father loves all of his children. I try to show that to others in the way that I live. I try to serve others as much as I can and lift their spirits. I love to encourage others to become the best they can be. In order to encourage others to do that, I also have to strive to be the best I can be and become all that God wants me to become. I love to smile to others and help them feel God's love for them.
