Hi I'm Courtney

I grew up in Utah. I have been called to serve an LDS Mission in the Philippines. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just finished my 3rd year of college and am getting ready to serve an LDS mission in the Philippines. I love to be outside and enjoy doing anything that will keep me outside. I love hiking, fishing, camping and four-wheeling the most. I also love to spend time with my friends sitting around a campfire talking and roasting starbursts. I'm the oldest out of all my siblings and I enjoy spending time with them when I come home to visit. I also love to play sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a very active LDS family and was taught the Mormon beliefs early on. But my conversion didn't take place until I moved away from home to attend college. I found that being out on my own really challenged what I believed in. I tried straying away from what I had been taught but I felt empty and sad. When I tried to really follow what I had been taught I found that I was a lot happier. I know that God lives and that we are all His Children. I know that He loves each of us individually. He knows us personally and knows us for the individuals that we are. I know that Christ also lives and that He came to this earth to die for us so that we might live again. I know that Christ has suffered above and beyond anything we might face. He knows exactly how we feel and exactly what we are going through. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints teaches the full and everlasting gospel and that it is the true church on this earth. I know that this gospel brings so much peace and joy into my life. And I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by going to church every Sunday and by trying to live in such a way that I can be happy every day. I try to find ways to serve others and have found that I have the most joy when I can do something for someone else.
