Hi I'm Courtney

I love music, I love my family, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love to spend time outside, especially during the winter time. I play lacrosse and I love to play the violin and the piano. I'm a lover of poetry and any feel good book. I am currently serving as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Russia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I find peace, hope, love, and joy in the teachings of the gospel. There are times when life may feel so overwhelming that you get to the point where you just want to give up; like you can't live another day. You may get to the point where you feel like there is no God or any hope for the future. You may feel like you have no purpose in life or that nobody knows how you are feeling. I am a Mormon because the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has the hope, peace, love, and joy everyone needs. I have found that love through my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ. He has suffered for all of us. He has felt every pain, every insecurity, every heart-aching emotion so that he could know how to help us. I know Jesus Christ loves each and everyone of us and when we follow Him and strive to become more like Him, we will feel that love, peace, and joy that comes from Him. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and because of Him, I can be clean. I can be forgiven. I can return to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in church each week and by planning and attending activities that were planned by the church. I read from the Holy Scriptures everyday, especially from the Book of Mormon. I pray to my Father in Heaven every morning and every night (and all throughout the day). I find that when I serve others, I am living the way God would want us to live.
