Hi I'm Courtney

I was born in Utah. I am an athlete. I am a sister. I am a Daughter. I am a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 20 years old, and I am serving in the Great California San Fernando Mission. I am also a college student. I love sports. I grew up in a family that follows faithfully, BYU athletics, the NFL, the MLB, and on occasion the NBA. I also learned how to play the piano and have for about 11 years. I love it and I love the spirit it brings into my home. Music has a huge influence on me. Playing hymns and medley's written and arranged by the church or members of the church help my testimony to grow.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. That is the foundation of my testimony. I know that with out a doubt. My knowledge about everything else in this gospel has, for me, come easier because I know that my Savior loves me. Being a member of the Church isn't always easy, but when I remember everything that I have gained from choosing to follow Christ, trials in my life don't seem as bad. I know that through him I can return to my Heavenly Father and live with my family forever, and that to me is the most important thing.

How I live my faith

As a full-time missionary for the church, I have the opportunity to study the gospel everyday. No matter what I study, I always learn something that I can apply to something that happens that same day, or in the days to come. I know that studying faithfully, and with an open mind can bring the spirit into your life. Through obedience, I have seen the miracles that happen as a servant of the Lord. I know without a doubt that this church is true, because I have been able to witness the spirit testify to those who hear him, just like he has testified to me. I do my best to live my faith, as I teach and testify of Christ.
