Welcome! My name is Courtney Joseph and I love Jesus. I am creating this second blog titled “Courtney’s Notes” because I need a space where I can exhale. For over a decade I have been writing and leading women’s Bible Studies over at WomenLivingWell.org . I LOVE it! It is a complete joy to get to journey through the Bible, cover to cover, with you all. But sometimes the Lord lays on my heart topics that do not flow with the Bible Studies I am leading, so rather than just storing it all in my journals, I thought I’d create a space to share it with you here.
I want this blog to be less formal and more old school – like back in the days when I first started blogging. So, it will be random, unfiltered, informal, sometimes light hearted if I share a recipe or a funny story from my life and sometimes deep and heavy as I share more personal things. I may be here frequently one month and gone for a bit the next, based on how much time I have. It will ebb and flow with my life, while I consistently show up at Women Living Well and lead Bible Studies. So, let’s get started – and see where this leads!!!
Here’s a little more about me if you are new here and just meeting me for the first time!
I have a 17 year old son, a 15 year old daughter and a 6 year old dog named Snowball. We live in Ohio and are big Ohio State Fans. I homeschooled my kids for 7 years and now my kids attend a Christian School. I am a graduate of the Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Evangelism and Discipleship but that’s just fancy for “I really love to study God’s Word and to serve.”
I grew up in a wonderful Christian home and I am the youngest of 3 girls. After dating for 4 years, I was married to my high school sweet heart for 19 years. 5 years ago, my husband left and it was devastating.
I love Starbucks Frappucinos, reading good books, lighting a candle in my house daily, having a bouquet of flowers in the kitchen and walking my dog. My favorite place to take a vacation is to the ocean. I hate to exercise but I do it 4–5 times a week. I tend to see the glass half–full and am a bit of an optimist and idealist. I wish I were a better cook and had more organized closets.
My life verse is Galatians 6:9, “Do not grow weary in doing good, for in due season you will reap a harvest if you do not give up.”
I feel blessed and humbled that you would allow me to speak into your life here. I am praying for you – and always remember God loves you! Keep walking with the King!
Now here’s the more professional bio if you are looking for that.
