Hi I'm Courtney

I grew up in Utah. I play tennis. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student studying to receive my Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. I love to play tennis and all types of sports. I love to dance and clog. I am an animal lover. I love all things girly: makeup, hair, etc. I love being with friends and family. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know it is the pathway which leads to eternal life. I know that this is the church that Jesus Christ established while he was on the earth. I know that we have a living prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, who lives on the earth today and receives guidance for the church as a whole. I know that a young 14 year old boy went into a grove of trees to pray to receive guidance as to which church to join and he was visited by God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know that through this young boy that Christ's true Church was restored here upon the earth. I know this boy, Joseph Smith Jr., to be a Prophet of God. I know that through Him the Book of Mormon was translated. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that through it we can become closer to our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I am truly grateful for the influence this Gospel has in my life. I love it with all my heart. I know that it makes me a better person and brings peace to my soul through trying times. I am a Mormon, because I know it is the true church. I know through this Gospel that I am a daughter of God and that He knows and loves me personally and infinitely. I know that He blesses my life. I know that as I live the Gospel my life seems to go smoother and I am happier.

How I live my faith

I say my morning and evening prayers. I read my scriptures daily. I strive to follow the commandments and do good to others. I try to be an example to others as my Savior, Jesus Christ was. I attend my church meetings throughout the week and the three hour church meeting on Sundays. I strive to visit teach the girls I have been asked to watch after and try to be good friends to them and those I come in contact with. I am going to be serving a full time 18 month mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where I hope I will be an instrument in bringing others unto Christ.
