Hi I'm Courtney

I grew up in Loveland, Colorado, but I'm going to Seoul, Korea to serve a mission! I'm a Mormon and I love this gospel.

About Me

I love the outdoors! I've grown up hunting, fishing, camping, and hiking around with my family and can't get enough of that stuff. I also love to run; I ran track and cross country throughout my high school years and still enjoy it now. I love a challenge, playing any sport, and I love being around friends and playing with kids. I've just finished my first year at Brigham Young University (not sure what I'm majoring in yet) and now I'm leaving to go serve in South Korea which will definitely be enough of a challenge, but so fun!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon church, both sides of my family have been members for many generations. But that does not mean that I did not choose to be here. The joy and peace that this gospel brings me cannot be found anywhere else and I know that. I have found that if I stop striving to be more like Christ, and fighting against temptation every day, I don't feel very good. I am a Mormon because I know this way of life and beliefs are true. There is no other way to truly become like our Savior and return to live with him and our Heavenly Father again. The strength that comes from overcoming weaknesses and challenges through the Atonement of Jesus Christ is something that I know I need in my life and want others to feel as well. This is why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Up until I was 18 and moved away, I was a leader of my youth group that met once a week. I also try to teach by example, by living the way God has commanded me and hopefully inspiring others to do the same. I am living my faith now as I go preach the gospel in South Korea to those who haven't heard about it yet. I hope to inspire the people there to follow their Savior and I have chosen to!
