Hi I'm Corum

I'm a new dad, an avid sports fans (especially University of Arizona sports), I'm an engineer & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Where to begin, within the past year so much has changed in my life, married almost a year ago to my wonderful wife Amanda, and we just had our first, a beautiful baby girl Madison Rae! As the quote in Ferris Bueller says, "Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and look around you just might miss it". That pretty much sums it up for me, life is moving along great and I'm just trying to stop and enjoy the little moments. Like spending time with my little daughter and having her entertain me with just about everything she does, from the million facial expressions (including her beautiful smile and laugh), to her pretending to be grown up (she's only 2 months, but I swear she is at least 2 years lol), to her sometimes spraying me when I'm changing her diaper (perhaps that's not entertaining, but it sure keeps me on my toes :) ... But I love life and love the gospel of Jesus Christ and looking forward to what the future brings for our little family, my beautiful wife and little daughter and me!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because being a Mormon provides the link to the only lasting happiness that can be found in this world or the world to come. And that is because I know Christ restored his true church on the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith and brought back the same organization that he set up while he was on the earth with prophets, apostles, revelation, his priesthood powers, and the ordinances that provide the way for me to live eternally with my Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ, and my family forever. I know this through a way more powerful than sight, I asked my Heavenly Father and was given a personal witness that allows me to know beyond mere faith that He lives, He has a son who worked out an infinite Atonement that allows me a way to be forgiven of my sons and through His grace be saved, I know that he did suffer for my sins and dies on a cross, and rose the third day! I know he has a plan for me called the plan of happiness, and he again revealed this plan and his church as he visited a 14 year boy in a grove, a boy named Joseph Smith who did see God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I know he brought forth the Book of Mormon, which like the bible testifies of Christ and provides answers to life questions and feel through reading this book that God loves me. I know this book is true! I know Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God on the earth today and receives revelation from God for our day to help us with the struggles of our generation. I love the church and it makes me happy and that's why I'm a Mormon!

How I live my faith

I'm a member of Christ church and I know that he loves me and has given me everything I have, the only way to live life is to live in gratitude for the blessings he constantly pours out on me. Sometimes I can lose sight of that, but I try to live my faith in the only way I truly know how, to "try" to live as Christ would. As a young kid my parents taught me this motto "What would my Savior do", (maybe not as catching as the acronym WWJD, but serves the same purpose), just try to be kind to everyone and live the golden rule.
