Hi I'm Cory

I am a husband, a dad, a sports fanatic, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Illinois and my entire life I played sports. I played basketball in college and just recently graduated about a year. I currently work as an Assistant General Manager for a collegiate summer league baseball team. I love all kinds of sports and enjoy being active. I am married and have one child and enjoy living life with such a wonderful family!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints with two very loving parents. I was taught the gospel of Jesus Christ and came to understand the values that help us to be good people. I have chosen to be a member of this church not because I grew up in it, but because I came to know for myself the truthfulness of this gospel. I came to understand who my Father in Heaven truly is. I came to understand what Jesus Christ did for me. I came to understand the plan of happiness and that our Father in Heaven is waiting to pour blessings upon us. However, it was a very gradual process for me to understand all of these things. As I began to do the the basic things at a very young age of praying, reading the scriptures, and going to church, I had a small testimony that began to grow. As I got older my testimony continued to grow through doing the basics of the gospel. I noticed that as I lived the gospel, I received blessings. If I didn't live the gospel, life got harder. Therefore, I decided that if I wanted to be happy then I should live the gospel. I know that as we strive to do what is right the Lord will bless us. As we strive to do what is right we will come closer to our Savior Jesus Christ. As a missionary in Argentina I learned what it means to be a servant of Lord. As we strive to invite others to come unto Christ we will receive joy. I know that the Book of Mormon is tangible evidence that helps us to know that Joseph Smith was a Prophet. I know that the Book of Mormon, along with the Bible, are testaments of Jesus Christ. I know that Jesus Christ died for us so that we can one day return to live with our Heavenly Father. I know that families are eternal and that the temple is the house of the Lord. I love my Family. I know that one day I will have the opportunity to Live with my Heavenly Father again with my Family Forever. Just do what is right and you will blessed. This church is true and you can find out for yourself too!

How I live my faith

I currently help the missionaries in inviting others to come unto Christ. This has helped me to see how lives can change so quickly for the better as we put the gospel first in their lives. I have felt the joy of others as they have have done what Jesus wants them to do. I know that as we keep the commandments the Lord will bless us. I live my faith by trying to do the simple things that God asks of us. By doing the simple things that God asks I have seen the peace and happiness within my own family. We can only know what God wants us to do by coming closer to him. I live my Faith by trying to do what Jesus Christ would do.
