Hi I'm Corinne

I'm a mom, a wife, a reader and a blogger. I am Mormon.

About Me

I went to the University of Maryland to get my undergraduate and graduate degrees in early childhood special education. Even though I have chosen to stay home and raise my three children, I feel like getting my education really prepared me to become a parent. Besides being a wife and mom, I really love to read and I have a blog where I review all the books that I read.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised a Mormon, I am a Mormon still today because when I was in college I decided to find out for myself if being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints really mattered. I needed to know if being married in the temple was worth preparing for. I needed to know if God knew me and answered my prayers. My prayers WERE answered and I knew in my soul that this was Christ's true church. Then there was no turning back.

How I live my faith

For the last five years I worked in the Women's Organization, helping to plan activities and teaching during Sunday meetings. I am now working with the children ages 3-11, teaching them gospel principles as a group and helping to make sure their weekly age-group classes run smoothly. I find SO MUCH PLEASURE in the faces of these young children as I teach them the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No. The Humanitarian Aid organization of this church is involved in helping people of all religions and races all over the world. Just today I read about a project in Africa that installed a 19 mile long pipeline that brought freshwater to a village in the DR of the Congo. I have read about aid given during the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans and to the victims of earthquakes in Asia. It's actually something I really like about my church, that there are no limits to who and where we will help others. And on a more personal level - I live in a Maryland neighborhood with a few Mormons, but most of my friends belong to a different religion or to no religion at all. No matter their views on religion, I love them and want to help them in any way that I can. I always try to be respectful of the things that they believe and I feel like they are respectful to me.
