Chat With a Mormon Online
Hi, my name is Corey Jones. I love to play basketball and I'll admit that I am probably borderline obsessed with hoops. I also love to pick up a good book. I have a lot of interests, music is towards the top, it's gotta have a beat. Other than that I'm taking things one day at a time. I'm a Mormon and proud of it!
I'm Mormon for a lot of reasons. I did not join the church until later in life, when I was twelve. I had the opportunity to listen and learn from the LDS missionaries and feel their testimonies of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. More than anything though I have a love for the Book of Mormon. I know it's true, the book has changed my life. I've prayed about it and have received a witness from the Holy Ghost that it is also God's word. I love it and I've seen the book change others lives along with my own.
The Book of Mormon was truly a starting point for me for something greater. The book itself softened my heart as I read it and tried to apply the precepts taught in it. I could also feel the power and influence of the Holy Ghost as I read the pages, they sunk deep into my heart. My own testimony hinges on the truthfulness of the book. It's true, and I know anybody can know by prayer and reading the book.
I live my Faith by the way I treat others, especially my family. I also live it by not lowering my own standards to please others. I do my best not to be judge-mental of others and that is always a work in progress. In the church I participate by going weekly and rendering service where I'm called upon. I also recently returned from a mission, two years of service and sharing the Gospel away from home to help others come closer to Christ.
