If you have a younger sister, you may have memories of her wearing your clothes, taking your favorite makeup and trying to duplicate your hairstyle. However, I honestly don’t think my sister could’ve possibly gotten her hair any higher than mine…then again she did think she was a hairstylist at one point and convinced me to go under her scissors. That turned out badly.
As we’ve grown up, we began to share things (without arguing) like being pregnant at the same time, having boys as our first child, having children with special needs (Autism), having a large family (she has 7 kids, I have 4), becoming passionate about helping others, our faith and so on.
So it is only natural that Courtney become an addition to A Girl’s Gotta Spa! to share her love of beauty, her passion for helping busy moms (especially those who have special needs children) and her knowledge and perspective as a nurse.
Courtney L. Smith, RN, BSN: Courtney is a woman who wears many hats in life as wife, mom of seven children (several with disabilities), telemetry staff nurse, public speaker, and as a published author. Some of her notable works include, contributions in Mark I. Pinksy’s, best-seller Amazing Gifts and in world renowned Phyllis Kilbourn’s book, Let All the Children Come. She has created/lead conferences and spoke on a variety of topics in healthcare and disability from the power of friendship to Autism to advocating to caring for the caretaker. Courtney was also the founder of the Links of Love disability ministry model, which was designed to come along side families affected by disability in an effort to not just help families survive, but to thrive! She is a passionate advocate and educator for the caregiver and busy woman and believes that every woman is a masterpiece in the making. Her goal is to help mom’s of children affected by disability and the busy woman in general to tap into and enhance they’re beauty, strength, balance, laughter, and health, so that they can keep pressing in and on through some of life’s toughest matters and busiest times!
We’ll be expanding our topics on A Girl’s Gotta Spa! to include health, wellness and tips for caretakers to take care of themselves. I hope you’ll post a comment and give Courtney a warm welcome to the blog!
