Hi I'm Corrine

I'm a daughter of God, wife, Mom, grandma (Nanna). I love spring, reading books on cloudy days, and best of all I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have five words to quickly describe myself Healthy, Happy, Organized, Realistic and Friendly. I have had four children 2 boys and 2 girls only 3 survived. I lost my baby girl, Nina Alane at six months (which was 14 years ago.) She was a Down syndrome child with a cushion heart defect; we were so lucky to have her as long as we did, she taught our family so much, we love her. Now our family has grown with a daughter and son in law, 2 granddaughters and a third grandchild on the way but we don't know what sex it is yet. I love the sunshine, swinging in swings, and the springtime that brings daffodils, tulips and grape hyacinths. I love laughing, singing, reading books, going on walks outside, and jogging slowly. I wish I could play volleyball, and watch high school basketball more often. In addition, if I find old things and re-make them into new things, de-junk closets, and make a new friend, that is what I call living. I'm a jack-of-a-lot of trades; master of none. My education has come from the University of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. I am still studying and haven’t graduated yet. I am the model student for “Arts of Common Sense Thinkers”. I have had to start over several times in my life (which doesn’t necessarily mean something bad happened) however it does mean I don’t mind change. My personal philosophy is the more people you get to know the SMALLER the BIG world becomes. I am fun loving and willing to work and to meet new friends.

Why I am a Mormon

To start out with I was raised in a family who were members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. But why I’m a Mormon is because I chose to be baptized in the church when I was eight years old. However, because of circumstances outside my control my maternal Uncle and Aunt took me in to their home and provided a strong family environment for me to grow-up in. I gained my testimony little by little, by asking questions through pray and studying the scriptures, listening and feeling the answers. When I was baptized I was given the Holy Ghost by those who had the authority to do so. The Holy Ghost testifies truth, truth never changes, it is always the same; so what was true once will be true now and always. As I asked questions the Holy Ghost helped me to remember what I knew before I came to this earth, that I am one of God’s children, that Jesus is my elder brother, that He is the Christ, the Savior of the World, and that He loves and knows Me. Through the trails of life I’ve learned that I love Heavenly Father too. He has a great personality (think of the beauties in this world, colors, sounds, and differences); he has a great sense of humor (if you want a good laugh just see how different people, animals or insects look, do not look at them to be mean, but to see humor in our differences, actions and shapes), in addition he is also serious, loving, patient, kind and oh so smart. If only I could someday to be half as good of a person, friend and parent as He is. Needless to say I have a long way to go. But that is why I am here on earth, to gain a physical body, to learn, grow, love and to live. I have come to understand that the gospel of Jesus Christ is simple, it provides me with the sure foundation of who I am (really), why I am here on earth (gives purpose, fulfillment), and where I am going (what my potential can be). The gratitude for the gospels knowledge fills me with peace, joy and love; for those reasons I love that I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Everyday I strive live my Faith; I hear a voice in my head … “Remember Who You Are” every minute of the each day. I remember as a teen when I would leave my home for a school activity or a date, either my Aunt or Uncle would say “Love you, and remember who you are”. I used to hate that, I would always reply “I know I’m Corrine” … But, really it’s so much more. Your name is everything; I have come to understand I am known by several names, I’ll mention just a few: my given name, sister, daughter, wife, mother, cousin, aunt, grandma, friend, neighbor, citizen, co-worker, confidant, and a daughter of God. With each name comes a responsibility to live up to and what I profess to be. I have taken upon myself another name “disciple”, which means I am a follower of Christ. I truly and honestly strive to live my Faith and be a follower of Him in every action. He set the example, to love everyone, give service to those in needs and to comfort those who mourn, clothe the less fortunate and so on. I believe my over-all conduct is positive; I love my family, am concerned for my neighbors and friends will being, and extend tolerance and understanding to those I don’t agree with and work to improve the relationship with them. Each day I look for ways to give service, to lighten the load or cheer up the sad. My heart aches for those who suffer sadness, illnesses, or hardships even if it’s brought on by bad choices; I try to lend a hand or a listening ear when I can. I look for ways to share without imposing and demoralizing the confidence of those who have lost their confidence. I touch, smile and laugh a lot; those things are easy and free for all. They are mine to give freely because of my faith in God and the joy I have inside from HIM.
