Courtney remembers having an experience in the ninth grade with the Holy Spirit that changed her life forever. She felt His presence for the first time and instantly fell in love. During that time, God gave her the desire to start playing the piano, songwriting, and leading worship. She answered the call and started a worship band at her father's church and wrote her first song "Your Presence." She has gone on to lead multiple worship teams. Courtney is an anointed songwriter, a passionate worship leader, and an inspiring woman of God.
God gave Courtney the name AWAKEN to remind herself and other Christians to wake up. It's a reminder to surrender, be peculiar, live holy, and remain set-apart.
Courtney is married to Bobby Bryan, the keyboardist in the group, and they have three beautiful children. She enjoys spending time with family and friends.
I wrote this song during a time when I wasn't feeling very confident in my calling. God reminded me that I'm more than enough. In His presence is fullness of joy. In His presence is healing and deliverance.
