Hi I'm Kourtney Cooper

I love to sing and dance. I have Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In 2008, I was diagnosed with Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy at the age of fourteen. My biggest goal in life and dream carreer at that time was to be a professional dancer. As life went on, my body physically changed and I had to rethink some options. Every trial has been such a blessing in my life. I am currently attending Utah State University studying Art with a emphasis in Graphic Design. I have the best family and friends in the world and the sweetest most wonderful boyfriend a girl could ask for--I am happier than ever!

Why I am a Mormon

Having a physical disability has been such a blessing in my life and is a major part of my testimony. I turn to my Heavenly Father through prayer in times of struggle, need, and comfort. Though every day I'm getting physically weaker, I am getting stronger spiritually. I am so grateful for this gospel and to be apart of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I know that God has a plan for me and I can always turn to him whenever wherever. I know that because of Jesus Christ, I will have a perfect body again and I will be able to live with my family for eternity. I am proud to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Though I decided not to go on a mission when I turned the appropriate age, I have found many ways to live my faith every day. I currently work at an LDS book store where I find opportunities for missionary experiences. I live my standards and I'm not afraid to stand up for what I believe to be true. I know that I am a daughter of God and I will show the world how proud I am to be His daughter.
