Hi I'm Kory.

I teach English at a local community college, I'm a hard-working family man, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Life has a way of evolving and changing imperceptibly. One day I was young and single and the next I realized that I was a father and husband with many responsibilities and with many people depending on me. Six little ones call me Dad and a lovely wife expects me to provide support and security. I do my best to accomplish this by teaching at a local community college. Family, work, and church consume most of my time, but I try to fit in time for camping, fishing, reading, and writing.

Why I am a Mormon

 I believe there is more to life than the daily grind. I believe the small glimpses of heaven that occasionally come to view are previews of more to come after this life is over. I’m a Mormon because the Church provides the eternal answers that I have about life and the universe. This isn’t just a church I attend on Sunday. This is a lifestyle choice, a life-changing way of living that prepares me for the eternities to come. I believe the Church enables me to draw closer to Jesus Christ through the doctrines that are taught and through the ordinances that are provided in his temples. Through Christ, the temple, and his church, I gain an eternal perspective that helps me work through the challenges that any father or husband faces when concerned about the well-being of his family.

How I live my faith

 I try to live my faith through my everyday actions. I try to treat people of all backgrounds and religions with respect. I’m constantly blessed by my interactions with those around me who provide multiple perspectives of both faith and life. I work in my local church serving and helping others. I enjoy visiting members of my church and community in their homes to teach the gospel of Christ and to share my faith. I do this motivated by the peace and perspective the gospel brings in my life. I want others to have these same assurances.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

 I believe that as a person humbly seeks for truth, they will find it. Are there physical proofs available that might confirm one’s faith? Yes, I believe there are. Will these proofs make a difference in the end? No, I don’t believe so. Heavenly truths must come from heavenly sources. Therefore, lasting spiritual truths will come to those who truly seek them by the power of God and his spirit. The physical proofs are comforting to those who already have a deeper and more meaningful knowledge of truth as learned spiritually however, they will never provide the bedrock of faith needed when persecution comes or doubts trouble our minds.
