Hi I'm Courtney

I am a native Texan. I love acting and the theatre. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student at Brigham Young University studying Acting. I've been working in theatre for 14 years and love it! I also love teaching kids, playing volleyball, photography, and movies. I love spending time with my family, my friends, and my dog, an Australian Shepherd named Teddy.

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen firsthand the difference that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can make in a person's life. Knowing that God lives and loves all of his children is a huge encouragement for me in and of itself. And the fact that Jesus Christ is our Savior--that through Him I can unload all of my guilt, worries, burdens, struggles, and shortcommings, and have a fresh start again--that is why I am a part of His gospel. If he loves me that much, the very least I can do is follow His example. Heavenly Father wants only to help us along this journey of life, and if we're willing to let Him into our lives, we can see miracles start to happen in us and in our homes and families. I know that God lives. I can feel His love for me and I know that He wants me and all of His children to be happy. The Book of Mormon and The Holy Bible together are the Word of God. I know that Christ atoned for our sins and that He rose again. I know of the truthfulness of this gospel. It is His gospel, and His church. I would not trade anything in the world for it. It has effected every event of my life and shaped me into the person that I am today.

How I live my faith

At church in my hometown, I pick what songs we will sing as a congregation each week and lead the music. I was also a teacher for the 4-5 year old class which was tons of fun! At school, I was Family Home Evening Co-chair, meaning that I coordinated between assigned activity groups. I have recently been called to serve a full-time mission in Idaho, where I will share the gospel and serve for a period of 18 months.
