Hi I'm Corine

I work as an Educational Assistant. I live in Rural Alberta. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a single woman in my 30's. I grew up in a small town, but moved to a big city in my 20's. I lived there and worked as a Nanny for ten years before I came home to be closer to my family and become active in the Church again. I have 8 nieces and 7 nephews. I love being an Auntie, it brings me joy. I like to read, cook and visit friends. In the summer I love to ride my bike, have bonfires in the back yard and roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Later Day Saint. But when I was in my 20's I rebelled. I was inactive for a number of years. I had many difficult experiences during this time. My life became painful. When things had gone about as bad as they could go, I decided to come home and give "Church" another try. It took me many months of careful prayer and study to discover the truth for myself. I found that through the Gospel of Jesus Christ I could have peace in my mind and heart. I read in Luke 6:43 that "...a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit." And in 3 Nephi 14:17 "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit". When I began living the principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, I found peace in my life, and I finally began to know who I am and even to love myself. I am a daughter of God, he knows and loves me and directs my life. The "fruit" of my choices as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints has been "good". I know that the Church is a "good tree". I know that the Church is true.

How I live my faith

I attend Sunday meetings and partake of the Sacrament to renew my baptismal covenants. I also go "visiting teaching" with my companion, a lovely elderly sister from my ward. We go to three different Sister's homes, bring them each a monthly message from the Relief Society, discuss gospel principles and help them out when they are in need. On a more personal level, I try each day to give my life over to my Heavenly Father. I'm not always successful, but my life is all the better for trying.

Why do Mormons baptize their new members?

When we are baptized we show God that we desire to follow him, take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ and always remember him and keep his commandments. We are baptized for the remission of our sins. Christ was baptized by John the Baptist though he had no sin. We should follow Christ's example and be baptized. Show more Show less
