Hi I'm Courtney Lovelace

I've traveled parts of Europe and the Middle East, I work with BYU athletics, I'm a dental assistant, and I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm a little bit of everything, an average of sorts. One talent or ability is not enough-instead, I try it all. I love being outside through all different seasons- snowboarding in the winter, water sports in the summer, hiking in the fall, and soccer in the spring. Cooking is a stress reliever in the middle of college and studying Global Studies with a minor in Communications. I want to not just see the world, but be a part of it and make a difference. I hope to travel and do humanitarian work. Living in a different country would be a dream. Raising a family with my husband is my highest goal and loving life and living it the fullest is my ambition.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known this church is true. This church teaches good and true principles that help me and you to get back to our Heavenly Father. This church is based on faith. In order to progress and become better, you need to have a belief in God and his Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. Once you have this base, you can only build on it, until it becomes a solid foundation upon which you grow and become more like Jesus Christ. I know this church is true. I have tested the principles taught and have found out for myself of their truthfulness. I know that Christ has died and was resurrected so that we may return to him again. What a blessing that God has blessed us with so much knowledge and has prepared a way for us to return. All we have to do is have faith and then act.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith day to day. I think it is important to be as consistent and possible, even though I am not perfect. Most of my "faith" may not be seen directly by those around me because I do a lot of the prep work on my own time. I wake up each morning and say a prayer, thanking my Heavenly Father for a new day and asking him to help me help those around me. I take time to read the scriptures and feel of their truth. It honestly helps me to get on the right foot at the start of the day and invited the Holy Spirit into my life. I go throughout my day accomplishing what I must, but always on the lookout to lift someone else or serve in any way. I hope that the little things will continue to make the small but large difference.
