Hi I'm Courtney Paul

I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah and I'm preparing to serve an LDS mission in Roseville, California!

About Me

Hi my name is Courtney. I just finished my fifth semester of college. I am studying to be an optometrist where I would love to do humanitarian work as well. I am preparing to serve an LDS mission in Roseville, California on Feb 6th 2013. I love the gospel, my family, basketball, softball, dance, and being outdoors. (camping, four wheeling, rock climbing etc.)

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church however, through study, prayer, and my own tests of faith I have my own firm testimony of this gospel. This church has many good guidelines for life and always is prepared for the next trials to come because of loving prophet that holds the authority to help guide us in the direction The Lord asks of us. The doctrines taught for instance, the atonement and families can be together forever even after death, teach us that we are all children of God and that we have a purpose in life and the life to come. God loves each and everyone of us and wants to help us reach our highest potential if we just let him.

How I live my faith

I willingly attend church every week and attend the temple now at least once a week when possible. My current calling in the church is family history coordinator and soon to be a full time missionary. As a missionary I pay so much to volunteer my time for 18 months to the lord. During these months I have left all worldly media, schooling, and family obligations behind knowing the lord will provide. I have been called to California to preach the gospel, answer questions, and share my personal testimony of the restored gospel and the love of our savior Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. I am privileged to be a tool in the Lords hand to gather Israel, his lost sheep. I furthermore, intend to live accordingly to these gospel standards throughout my entire life.
