Hi I'm Courtney

I love living in the mountains. I'm an Elementary Education major. I'm a goof :) I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being outdoors! I enjoy fishing, four-wheeling, shooting, camping and horseback riding. I have been lucky enough to grow up in the beautiful mountains of Northern Arizona. I feel at home in the mountains. I am going to school to be an Elementary school teacher and preparing to serve a mission. I love singing and expressing myself through music. I have traveled around the world and spent two months in Thailand where I learned a lot about different cultures, people and traditions. I'm addicted to chocolate, country music and sunshine :)

Why I am a Mormon

Three years ago I was first introduced to this church. I was living with a family who was LDS and they left a huge impression on me. They were all great influences on me as they tried to guide me the best that they could in my trials. I have had many amazing experiences in the church. I went to church for about a year and a half and then left to go to Thailand for two months. When I came back from Thailand had a really amazing friend that invited me to go to church with him again. That Sunday changed my life. I felt the spirit speak to me so strongly. I felt a happiness come over me that I hadn't felt in a long time. I had missed it and I knew that the church was true. I then started taking lessons with the missionaries and got baptized a month later! :)

How I live my faith

I am a convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My first calling in the church that I have received has been to serve as a Family History Consultant in the Young Single Adults Ward. I have been lucky enough to gain experience teaching in this calling. I also do visiting teaching which has strengthened my testimony and the bond that I have with the other women in the church. It is a way for us to comfort, love and be there for one another. I love serving others! Doing service for others is very important, I believe we are supposed to lighten each others load in life and help one another in life. It not only makes the person you're doing service for feel good, it makes you feel good too! :) I hope to be a good example to others around me.
