Hello! My name is Courtney, and I’m from the United States. I am married, nine years next month. My husband and I have two handsome, intelligent, but fiery boys. They are 7 and 5. I am currently a stay-at-home mom, and thanks to the pandemic, now a preschool and 1st-grade teacher. I am also studying the free Bible courses online at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about free online Biblical classes, Click Here).
I was ten years old when I gave my life to Christ. Unfortunately, I did not grow up in a home where we were faithful in a church, so I did not live the life I should have through my teenage years.
The Word tells us we overcome by the word of our testimony. I’ve always been so ashamed of my past that I’ve never really talked about it. My husband, a few close friends, and some of my family are the only ones who know the horrible path my life was on. However, in the last few months, I’ve spent so much more time with the Lord that I’ve come to realize that my past is no longer something I need to be ashamed of, but it’s something I need to share so I can brag about the awesomeness of God!!! What God did for me, the sacrifices He made for me even knowing what I was doing in my life.
I’m going to be completely transparent with you right now. I was deep in sin. Living a life of homosexuality for nine years, I was also on the verge of becoming an alcoholic. So much so that I got to a point in my life where I didn’t care about anyone or myself. I pushed everyone I loved away. BUT then GOD! I became so convicted that I had dreams of burning and would wake feeling like I was on fire. Quickly, I realized this was not what I wanted for eternity, but that was the path I was on. I rededicated my life to Christ 10 years ago! Let me tell you. It’s the best decision I could have ever made!!

My husband is studying to become a pastor. I wanted to enroll in these Bible courses at Christian Leaders Institute to further my spiritual walk with the Lord and strengthen my knowledge and relationship. My prayers through these studies are that I become more prepared to be a strong woman of God and a pastor’s wife when the time comes.
