Hi I'm Corryn

I grew up in South Africa, I'm a mother of 5, grandmother of 1, a flight attendant, a breast cancer survivor and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom and grandmother, I was a school music teacher for many years, but I am now a flight attendant. I love working with people. I absolutely love music and theater, they have always been a huge part of my life. I hope that by introducing it to children , that in some small way I have been able to enrich and influence their lives for good. I am a breast cancer survivor and feel very blessed to live in a time where there has been such huge advances made in technology and medicne that saves peoples lives. I enjoy exercising and have run 1 marathon and many half marathons and shorter races. I Love my children and grandbaby they are the most important people in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was fortunate that my parents joined the church before I was born and so I have always been a member. But there comes a time when each person needs to decide for themselves. I have had so many experiences in my life that have confirmed to me that Jesus lives and that I am indeed a daughter of God, whom He knows and loves. He is aware of my challenges, pain and trials. He has given me strength and help to walk through the clouds. I remember as a college student sitting in my dorm room reading the Book of Mormon and feeling this overwhelming conviction envelop me, touching my soul, testifying to me that what I was reading was true. That has sustained me through my life, it has determined every decision I have made and defined how I live my life. I am not perfect, not by any means, but I strive to live my life in accordance with the principles of the Gospel. Doing so gives me such great peace and joy. To know that all that we go through in this life is not for naught, that we are not here by accident but by divine purpose and that we are here to learn, to grow, that there is life after we leave our mortal bodies, and we can be with our families again. This knowledge makes living life with all its ups and downs all worthwhile.

How I live my faith

I have been serving in the wards I have lived in since I was thirteen. My first assignment was pianist for the children and music leader. I have served in the young women organization and on many youth committees, in the children's organization and in the women's organization. I have also served as ward chorister and choir director. I have visited and become very close friends with women that I have been assigned to visit. I was a Bishop's wife. Many of the assignments I have been given have stretched me and taught me, because of them, I have developed many valuable skills that I have been able to incorporate in my occupation. They have been a blessing in my life.
