Hi I'm Corbin

I'm a husband, father, physician, outdoor enthusiast, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a resident physician studying to be a radiation oncologist. I am married to my best friend and we have been blessed with two rambunctious children. I absolutely love to be outdoors. Hiking, camping, and sightseeing are some of my favorite hobbies. Also, I love playing any and every sport such as basketball, football, soccer, bowling, racquetball, etc.

Why I am a Mormon

I have willingly chosen to be a Mormon because of the ineffable peace and joy that fill my life as I live by Christ's teachings given both anciently and modernly through His servants. Those who know me are familiar with my stubbornness. I do not accept things as truths without first studying them out for myself and questioning their veracity. After much study and heartfelt prayer, sincerely desiring to know if the Book of Mormon is true and if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, I have found out for myself that these doctrines are true. Jesus is the Christ and a man can come closer to Him by abiding by the precepts taught in the Book of Mormon. If you don't believe me, try it!

How I live my faith

Life is difficult and often not fair. I try to simplify it and find happiness in each and every day by living my faith. Daily prayers and daily scripture study definitely help. I feel that they are the key to unlocking God's help, and with His help we can accomplish so much more in life. Currently I serve as the assistant scoutmaster for our area and I enjoy working with 11-18 year old boys.

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

"I believe in God and in his wisdom and benevolence, and I cannot conceive that such a Being could make such a species as the human merely to live and die on this earth. If I did not believe in a future state, I should believe in no God. This universe, this all, this totality would appear with all its swelling pomp, a boyish firework.” –- John Adams “I can see how it might be possible for someone to look around on earth and not believe in God, but I cannot conceive how anyone could look up into the heavens and say there is no God.” --Abraham Lincoln “If the solar system was brought about by an accidental collision, then the appearance of organic life on this planet was also an accident, and the whole evolution of Man was an accident too. If so, then all our present thoughts are mere accidents - the accidental by-product of the movement of atoms. And this holds for the thoughts of the materialists and astronomers as well as for anyone else's. But if their thoughts - i.e., Materialism and Astronomy - are mere accidental by-products, why should we believe them to be true? I see no reason for believing that one accident should be able to give me a correct account of all the other accidents. It's like expecting the accidental shape taken by the splash when you upset a milk-jug should give you a correct account of how the jug was made and why it was upset.” -- C.S.

Who is the Mormon prophet today?

Thomas S. Monson is the living prophet and President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who has been called of God. Although he has lived a remarkable life modeled after our Savior, He did not seek this position, there was no majority vote to elect him as our leader, and he is not paid for his service. I know without a doubt that He was chosen by God and receives revelation from God. He is assisted by two counselors and a quorum consisting of twelve apostles. Each of these fifteen men is sustained as a prophet, seer, and revelator, which means that God can make His will known through any of them. Thomas S. Monson will be "the" prophet of God until his death, whereupon God will call another prophet to guide us, His children, until the second coming of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
