Hi I'm Corey

I am a husband of 27 years, a father, a grandfather, an accountant, and I am a Mormon

About Me

My wife and I have been married for 27 years, we have six children ranging from ages 12 to 24, and one granddaughter who will soon be a year old. I am an Accountant by profession, working in the healthcare industry, and love out door activities with my family, camping, hiking, bicycling, target shooting, skiing and riding my Harley Sportster. I grew up on a potato farm in Idaho which taught me great life lessons and blessed me with a strong work ethic. I loved working on the farm every day during the summer with my dad and brother. I am also very interested in genealogy and am currently trying to find my great great grandpa who lived in Sweden during the 1800's.

Why I am a Mormon

When I consider the impact that Jesus Christ has had in my life it fills me with tremendous gratitude and a desire to serve in His church all that I can. Through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ my sins are forgiven through repentance. Through priesthood authority restored to the earth by Jesus Christ, my wife and children are sealed to me for time and all eternity. In other words, our family relationship does not end at death if I am faithful in living the teachings and commandments of the Savior. This I know to be true through the confirmation of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

My life is centered around my wife and children and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have served in many voluntary positions or "callings" within the church including serving with the Boy Scouts, teaching youth classes in Sunday School, and working with individuals struggling with both temporal and spiritual trials. My wife and I also assist with school activities with our children. I also teach classes in genealogy, showing individuals how to search for their ancestors and index microfilmed vital records such as census records, birth certificates and death certificates.
