Hi I'm Courtney

I love horses, words, traveling, the outdoors, math, American Sign Language, and chocolate. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In May of 2014 I graduated with a degree in Mathematics. I have developed a deep passion for ASL and plan to pursue a degree in American Sign Language in the near future. I hope to become a sign language interpreter for the deaf and hard of hearing and someday teach deaf students mathematics by combining two of my passions. I love riding my horses and they continue to be a source of inspiration in my life. Life is beautiful and I hope to live it to the fullest extent possible. I hope that my passion for the things I love and life itself will help me touch the lives of those around me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I did not always have a testimony and for many years I rarely attended church meetings or activities. When I started college at 18 I began reading The Book of Mormon daily and although I had read it previously it was at this time that I began to truly notice the power within its pages. Within a year I began actively attending church again. I have always found daily prayer a difficulty, but through prayer and study I gained a knowledge of my Savior that I had never before had. I want to gain happiness in this life and the one that follows. I have always felt that I am not quite whole and through the experiences of my short life the only thing that has ever begun to mend that hollow feeling is this church and its teachings. I know that Christ died for my sins and that through his atonement I can be made whole and gain that happiness. I hope that along the way I can both help and be helped by others who are working for that happiness.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures daily and attending church meetings regularly. I think it is very important to keep my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in my life no matter where I am. I love to share my faith and beliefs with those around me. I have often been strengthened by the faith and testimony of others and I try to return the favor.
