Hi I'm Cora

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

First, I am a mother of many children and have and do enjoy their companionship daily. Some of my greatest blessings call me Grandmother. I consider our family to be the most important part of my life. They are my heart. My occupations before I retired was, computer analyst and Project Manager. I love helping people. Computers and electronic technology have been some of my hobbies as well. I use them to do Family History, to write books and to process photos along with many others things. I love to sew, garden, read and refurbish old furniture or fix up old things. I grind wheat into flour and make bread for my family. We have a solid concern about what foods we give our bodies to function on. I enjoy many types of music and have used music as a very powerful teaching tool. Teaching is another enjoyable experience for me and I have taught Family history , Gospel Doctrine to all members and children's classes as well as the women's classes. We also teach our family good solid principals once a week during our Church wide Family Home Evenings. National and International affairs are of particular interest to me. I am in a state of continual learning. I love to take classes on a variety of topics. I grew up on a homestead in Alaska with goodly parents and have had many very hardy and rich childhood experiences. I could tell you some good bear stories. I enjoy life and am very grateful for what Heavenly Father has given me and my family..

Why I am a Mormon

I found the church when I was 27 years old. My mother was raising Poodles and became friends with an LDS lady who was also raising Poodles. I remember having some questions about why we were here and where we came from. My mother discussed my concerns with her friend who sent me answers back through my mother. It was like light bulbs turning on. I immediately saw that if the principles we were discussing were true than other principse would be true also. I wanted to know that moment if the gospel was really true so I called the chuch and like a miracle the missionaries answered the foyer phone. I told them I needed to know now about the gospel. They made arrangements with the ward missionaries so they could keep other committments and see me that very evening. I recognized the gospel and to their amazement I related to them the plan of salvation. I knew it. I have red hair so when they called me golden, I thought they were referring to my hair. Years later I found out that they were referring to my excitement over finding the gospel. I knew it was true. The Holy Ghost bore witness to me that it was true. My testimony was so strong that I could not deny that Jesus is the Christ and that the plan of salvation was an explanation of why we were here on earth. It was in perfect harmony for me and I have never been disappointed in Heavenly Father's plan for me and my family and friends. I love the gospel and am so happy that I have found it. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus the Christ for what they have done for all of us. It is a glorious plan.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel with all my heart. We have family prayer, blessings on our food, read the scriptures daily and hold Family Home Evening with the children so we can teach them righteous principles. We are mindful of the television programs that we watch as a family and try to respect the rights of all members. We work together attend functions together. I have a companion that I visit others sisters with each month and we are called visiting teachers. I am a member of the women's organization called Relief Society and receive training and opportunities to serve others. We help each other when a new child is born or if a trial or tradgety occurs among us. We take meals into those who are ill or unable to prepare their own meals. We also will help them to clean house or tend their children or just hold their hand while they get through their trial. I curb my temper, savor the experiences of others and try to live the commandments presented to us in the Bible and the Book of Mormon. I am constantly learning how to be obedient to the commanments. I teach others what I have learned and share their burden and joy with them. I try to be a good neighbor and to consider other peoples' feelings in all I do. I am daily trying to repent of any evil that lurks within me so I can return to Heavenly Father one day a clean person in whom he can be well pleased. I live my life with faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus the Christ from whom all things come. I love them with all my heart and try to show them my love as they have abundantly shown us their love.
