Hi I'm Cory

I´m a Missionary, a sports fan, and a classic rocker. I´m a Mormon!

About Me

about me... hmm, well for startes i´m currently serving a 2 year, full time mission for my church, in the Brasil Sao Paulo Interlagos Mission. i have a passion for music, especially that of the classic rock genre. i love to play sports, running, soccer, basketball, football, anything and everything basiically!! i love the people here in brasil, and my mission has changed my life. i´ve been out for a year and six months and i couldn´t ask for a better experience!

Why I am a Mormon

The simplest way to describe why I'm a Mormon, is because it's the only true church on earth. I haven't had a miraculous conversion, i've been a mormon my entire life. I wouldn't be serving a mission right now if it wasn't. this really is the true church on the earth, and i can feel that every single day as i'm talking with people, and trying to share the blessings this church has brought into my life with the good people of detroit. i'm soo grateful for the many blessings this gospel has brought into my life, and especially for the gift we recieve at baptism, known as the Holy Ghost. The influence it has in my life is life-changing. to feel comfort or peace when i need it, or promptings or direction as to who to talk to or where to go is miraculous. But all in all, i'm a mormon because i've prayed for the truth, and i've been blessed to have recieved the confirmation for myself, that this is the one and only true church of God on earth. Jesus Christ did in fact atone for yours and my sins, so that we could live again with our Father in Heaven. Joseph Smith did in reality recieve an answer to his prayers, through the visitation of God and Jesus Christ to him in the Sacred Grove. And through Their guidance, he translated the Book of Mormon, so that all the earth could come closer to God. I know with an absolute surety that Thomas S. Monson is God's prophet on the earth today, and he recieves revelation for all the earth. Most of all, I know that we can know that all this is true, simply by choosing for ourselves to read that book, the one that the Prophet Joseph Smith said would bring man closer to Christ than any otehr book on earth, even the Book of Mormon, and when doing so by kneeling in humble prayer, with real intent, i know that we can recieve an answer to our prayers, and a confirmation that this is THE true church of God on the earth today. All we have to do is try it out for ourselves.

How I live my faith

How do i live my faith? well, for starters, i´m serving a two year mission for my church!! i am serving in the sao paulo interlagos mission(the best place in the world). some things that i, or really anyone who wishes to do to "show" their faith, is to live what they beleive. since i beleive the commandments of the church to be commandments of god, i gotta live them! that includes reading from, and studying the book of mormon, and also other scriptures, praying daily to our heavenly father, attending church meetings on a weekly, regular basis, and much much more. as i said, i´m serving a mission right now. everyday i get to help other people live the faith that they have in our savior, and in god as well. i think this is the best way we can live a faith in the lord jesus christ. by first living it ourselves, and second, helping others develope theirs!!

How can I know Mormonism is true?

the only way you, me, or anyone really can know if mormonism is true, is by finding out for yourself. and the way to find out is by hearing the missionaries share the gospel message with you, and by reading the Book of Mormon. But more important than either of those, is praying to God, the Eternal Father, in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ to find out if it's true. God has promised us that if we lack wisdom, we can ask of Him and He'll give us an answer. So Do it!! Show more Show less
