Hi I'm Cory.

I'm a Mormon. I love my Father in Heaven and my Savior Jesus Christ.

About Me

I am 53 years old, a father of 4 and a grandfather of 9. I have worked as an engineer for over 30 years. I live in Utah and been a member of the church all of my life. I am a 6th generation Mormon. Many of my ancestors joined the church in Denmark and England and sailed to America and then walked to Utah.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so thankful to my Father in Heaven for my life and my family. Even though life is very difficult I know that God has always been there to help me and guide me along my life's path. Whenever I pause to pray I feel peace and calm enter my soul. I know that I can talk to God about any and all of my troubles, that he listens and cares and wants to help me. The teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ have given me knowledge about the true character of God and His son Jesus Christ. I know that they live and that I can live with them some day. This life is the time to learn and gain experience that we will take with us. This life has a purpose and we need to prove ourselves worthy to live with God. I am thankful to know that my family can be together for all of eternity, that we can continue to learn and grow and become like our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I am currently a counselor to the Bishop of my ward (congregation). I have been in this calling for the past 3 years. I was very nervous about accepting this calling because I felt there were many more qualified than me. But I have really learned to love this responsibility. I enjoy serving and helping the members of my ward and my neighborhood.

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

When I look up at the millions of stars at night or learn about the complexity of the human body (or any other kind of science) I am convinced that there is a Supreme Creator. It is beyond comprehension to think that these things came about by accident. Life is so complex that I know it could only exist through the power of an all knowing God. Show more Show less
