Hi I'm Corey

I have served in the military for a number of years. I am a Latter day Saint.

About Me

I have been happily married for 17 years. We have 6 beautiful and wonderful children. I have been an Infantryman in the Army for several years. I love mountain biking, hiking, camping, shooting, basketball and playing with my kids. 

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon mainly because I beleive that I need to live up to higher standards every day. Everyday I get the opportunity to try to be a better person. I love that this Church teaches that God expects me to be the same Monday through Friday as I am at Church on Sunday. The number one reason I am a Mormon is because of how we have the ability to live forever as a complete family. my wife and I are not married for the time we are alive. our kids are with us forever and we can continue to know and love and enjoy each other far beyond now.

How I live my faith

I am the Mission leader in my ward. That means that I work for the Bishop in coordinating the efforts of the members and full-time missionaries. I enjoy every day leading our family in prayer and striving to do good. This Spring I am organizing a 5K race to help benefit the local Food Bank. I love to help out wherever and whenever I can. One great joy is to go camping with our Boy Scouts. They are such a joy to be around and their leaders are amazing men.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Corey
 This is a life of probation where we make choices. All of us will sin in many of our choices. Only the sinless can can enter directly into God's presence. Jesus was the only sinless one. He suffered excrutiating death so make up for our shortcomings. How wonderful a gift! Without a Savior, we would not be able to return. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Corey
The clearest way to know is to ask the one who will not lie to us. Praying to God the Eternal Father about the turthfulness of anything, will lead to your receiving an answer. When we try to reason an answer, we can get it wrong. God will never lead us astray. Show more Show less

Does The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints endorse political parties?

Corey
The Mormon Church tries very, very hard to stay out of politics. There have been times when the Mormon Church has spoken out on issues, but there will never be an endorsement of a political party or candidate. We as members have an obligation, however to exercise our individual responsibility of voting our conscience. How we individually feel also may not always be exactly the stance of the Church on a particular issue. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Corey
My life all around tells me there is a God. I see flowers bloom, babies grow and develop, I see exactness and harmony in the planets and stars. I mean, Earth is just the right distance from our sun and moon, the atmosphere is just right, and so on for us to thrive! I cannot believe that these are accidents.  Show more Show less

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

Corey
The Mormon Church has money set aside to help those locally and far away. Trucks, planes and ships are constantly moving to help those in need. There are many who are helped daily and after disaster. They are ready to help those with immediate needs by providing food, clothing and shelter. They also do much in the way of helping those learn to help themselves.  Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Corey
The Mormon Church has many ways to find out more information. You can chat online with missionaries on this site. You may know someone. Even those who aren't very forthcoming about offering may be very willing to share if you ask. All those who love the Lord, love to share His glorious truths! Show more Show less
