Get to know Courtney

What should you know about me? I’m sitting at home right now wondering what I should tell you about myself. I’m drinking coffee as I ponder this – this is pretty typical of me.

I love Starbucks. Particularly triple tall Americano’s. I love enjoying good food with good friends, spending afternoons in bookstores, and taking long walks with my husband. I like being outside, playing with dogs, and jumping in puddles after it rains.

I like to bake things for people. If I have some extended time at home, my kitchen will smell like a bakery.

I like the smell of warmth and rising flour and yeast. I want to learn how to make a croissant. Do you know how? If you do, teach me. It’s been on my life list since I studied abroad in France when I was a sophomore in college.

I went to college at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire. My college years were a time of self-discovery, development and figuring out where the Lord was leading me in life. It took me awhile to figure out where He wanted me to go. I’m not always good at following.

I was a Christian before college, but I didn’t understand surrender and that my life was about following God’s plans. I learned how to walk intimately with Him in my years at Eau Claire.

I studied Mass Communications – Public Relations, business communication and information systems. I’m a nerd who likes to communicate through various forms of media. I was all about prepping myself for Corporate America.

That was my original plan. Cargill Inc. hired me in my senior year of college. But soon after graduation, God radically changed every plan I could have ever made for myself. He has since done this multiple times.

I’m a sinner saved by grace. Praise the Lord. The Gospel is the deep stuff. It will never seize to bring me to my knees in worship.

I’m designed to bring glory to the Creator of the universe. He’s wrecked me completely and I live to surrender my life fully to Him.
