Hi I'm Courtney Hinson

I grew up in Texas, I'm a veteran but most important I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband to the love of my life going on 19yrs and a father to 4 incredible children. Their ages are 17, 12, 12, and 7 and they keep us busy. I'm also a veteran with multiple deployments to both Afghanistan and Iraq where these experiences have not only changed my life but also changed me as a person. I've witnessed Christs blessings and love for me many times and have truly learned that he knows me as a person and has answered my prayers many times. I hope to use these experiences to help others that may be struggling through life and to help show how Christ can heal all things and that through him we can live a happier life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church however being a member of the church I still had to experience my own conversion to the gospel and feel the love that Christ has for me. As I live the teachings of Christ through his church I continue to grow spiritually as I try to be more like him. Like many others I have experienced my share of adversity no more or less than anyone else but the one thing that helps me through these trials is my testimony of Christ and the love that he has for me.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by believing in God and his son Jesus Christ and that through them and living the gospel I can have eternal life and happiness with my family in their presence. I attend my church services and meetings where I serve in the leadership of my branch. I serve the members there through counseling, teaching and support for not only the members in our branch but also to the community with the understanding that we are all Gods children. I try to be the example that would be pleasing to the Lord and fall short a lot and that's ok. Through Christ I can always make changes and corrections to get my life back on track and moving forward.
