Hi I'm Courtney

I grew up in Brisbane, Australia. I love music. I have 5 sisters, 1 brother. I'm a future missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a great passion for music. In my spare time I especially love to play guitar. I studied film and tv at university for a year. I've worked previously as a nanny and am now currently preparing for my mission in New Zealand Auckland, leaving later this year.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because living its teachings brings me the greatest amount of joy I have ever felt in my life. I was raised in the church but have come to realise the importance of developing my own conversion. I know that this church holds the answers to questions so many of us have. I myself have questioned a lot of things, like why is this life even necessary? As I listen, learn and do my own personal study of the teachings of the church I am more and more convinced of its truths. It is so incredibly tough growing up in the world today and you are exposed and pressured to do a lot of things. The trials can be immense for some and we stumble and make mistakes. It is only through this gospel that i have been able to surpass and conquer those things and discover the answers to my questions. We are given agency and it's up to us how we exercise that. I know of a surety that Jesus Christ suffered and died for me so that i may have the opportunity to repent. This knowledge and applying it has blessed my life immensely and makes me strive to be a better person every day. So why am i a mormon? I am a Mormon because being a mormon makes me happy. Being a Mormon helps me become more than i am. Being a Mormon allows me to approach life with a greater knowledge and perspective of why I am here.

How I live my faith

In my church I serve as a teacher to children ages 10-11 and I absolutely love it! I am also in charge of organising the music for our ward, including musical items and leading music in our weekly meetings.
