Do you want to chat with a missionary?

We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Corynn

I'm a Dancer, I'm a Vocalist, Im a Missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was raised in Olympia, Washington as the oldest of 6 kids. From a young age I have loved to organize things, dance, sing, spend time with family and be outdoors. I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and learned the doctrine from a young age. I love to share my faith with others and see the change it makes in their lives. My favorite hobbies are singing and dancing. I have danced on my high school and collegiate competitive teams and fell in love with performing. In the last few years I have developed my singing voice through being in choirs and taking private voice lessons. I love life and I'm happy to be me!

Why I am a Mormon

Being born in the church was such a great blessing, and prepared me for my journey of conversion. Although I was taught good morals and doctrine from a young age, I often wondered why there were so many churches with differing messages. I wanted to know for myself which of these churches was God's church. I began to study it out and pray to my Heavenly Father about what to do. Here I learned that sometimes answers do not come when you want or expect. After much prayer and searching I received my answer. I was sitting in church one day listening to the speaker speak about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. The next moments were some that I will never forget. For no particular reason my heart started pounding and I got goosebumps all over. I soon recognized that I was getting my answer by the power of the Holy Ghost. Though small and simple, this experience I had is one that changed my life forever. From that moment on, my testimony and conversion has grown and is ever growing. I am so thankful for that experience and the ones that have come afterward.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading my scriptures, saying my prayers, looking for opportunities to serve others, and apply the things that I learn at church. I am currently serving a mission in Las Vegas, Nevada. This experience I am having during this 18 months will forever be among my fondest of memories. As a missionary I spent all my time, studying, teaching, and doing my best to serve others. Through that time I have seen Christ's love and sacrifice bring about miracles in people's lives. Since I have applied the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life and put it to the test, I have been happier, healthier and eager to share it with others.

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Corynn
A husband and wife in Christ are equal partners. Each one of us has our specific roles such as providing for the family and nurturing children. Each are equally important in God's eyes. As they both work together, they can create a spirit-filled environment where children of God can grow. The husband presides over the family in righteousness and humility. This is a great responsibility that takes much care by use of the priesthood. The wife's responsibility is for the care and nurture of the children. Though the world may criticize, the role of the mother is one of, if not the greatest responsibility in this existence. The warmth and care of a mother can lead the children to grow to fill the measure of their creation. As the husband and wife work together, they can bring to pass a great balanced environment to raise a righteous family. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Corynn
Missionaries will teach about the Atonement of Jesus Christ and how we all can have the blessings of this great sacrifice he made. The missionaries will also teach the gospel of Jesus Christ and what things that we need to do to live with our Heavenly Father and our families forever. The missionaries are a great resource to help people to recognize the promptings of the Holy Ghost in their lives and how they can receive and apply that direction in their lives. What a great blessing! Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Corynn
As a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints we invite people to learn for themselves if this church is true or if it is not. The only way that we can know is if we learn, ponder, apply and pray about the teachings of the Gospel. During this process, answers will come as we keep the commandments of God and act upon the answers that come. Many people expect a large undeniable answer by seeing something, but rather, an answer from the Holy Ghost comes in small and simple ways. We must be sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Ghost that come to our minds and hearts. I have gone through this process for myself and I know without a doubt that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is God's kingdom on earth. If you are curious about the church, I strongly encourage you to learn about these teachings and ask your Heavenly Father. There is NOTHING to lose and EVERYTHING to gain. My life has changed forever. Show more Show less
