Hi I'm Courtney

I'm from Yucaipa, CA, I went to school at BYU Hawaii, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One thing I really enjoy is being outside. I enjoy going on hikes or going to the beach, and just enjoying the beauty of God's creations. On the flipside I also really like those days where you just hang out at home with your family/friends. Family is huge to me and one of the most important parts of my life! I began learning how to play the piano when I was about 5 and have played ever since. I ran cross country and was on the golf team at Redlands High School. When I graduated I went to a year of college at BYU Hawaii, and I am now preparing to serve a mission in Orlando, Florida!

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ is so true and so comforting. I know my purpose here on this earth. I know that I have a Father in Heaven who loves and cares for me, that He sent His Son to Atone for my sins and help me return to Him someday. When I read the scriptures, Bible and Book of Mormon, the Spirit testifies of them and I know without a doubt that they are true. This gospel has brought so much to my life and I owe everything to it. I am a Mormon because I have felt of it's truth and have partaken of the countless blessings this gospel brings.

How I live my faith

I go to church on Sundays, and I absolutely love that. I feel like it just fills up my spirit for the week and prepares me for any challenges I may face. Reading the scriptures and praying are so important too! Doing those things help me feel closer to the Lord. Lastly, I just try to be an example! Being of service to others and taking any opportunity I can to help someone in need. I know I'm not perfect and sometimes struggle in some of these areas, but I do my best and that's what counts!
