Hi I'm Kori

I am a mother of 3 beautiful daughters-all under the age of 5- and I love it! I am loving, spunky, and tenacious and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My husband and I are back at school so he can finish in Petroleum Geology. We have 3 daughters under the age of 5 and it's a busy life around here! The choice to go back to school after working full time and starting to settle down was definitely a leap of faith! However, we now know it was the right choice for us and we couldn't be happier-despite the lack of financial resources! Our little family is having fun getting to know our new community and in making new friends. I stay at home with my girls which has been a huge learning experience and has been a fun ride so far. In the little amounts of spare time I get I love to learn new things. On my list right now are learning how to sew, learning how to do anything crafty in order to make our home cute, and learning more about nutrition and food preparation. I am also teaching myself how to crochet! I love sports-any of them-and am a Zumba fanatic! I am certifying soon to become an instructor and firmly believe in being physically fit. One day I hope to certify as a personal trainer as well. I have also applied to return to school to work towards a masters degree and, after a few semesters of pre-requisite work, will eventually have my Masters of Accountancy. I look forward to using this education to benefit my family's lives as well as being able to work from home, set my own schedule, and be available to my family and friends. I love life! I love the gospel of Jesus Christ and am grateful for it's influence in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

My background is this: My father is not a member of the Church and when I was 8 years old, the missionaries tracked into our family. My mother, who was a baptized but less active member, invited them in and allowed them to teach myself and my three siblings about the gospel. Mother was very direct with us about how it was our individual choice as to which religion we believed and attended and she directed us to choose according to the answers we received through prayer. I knew with every feeling in my 8 year old heart that The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints was the true church of Christ. And I knew this was where the Lord wanted me to be. So, I was baptized! And I have loved life ever since. It has not been an easy one and I have had my share of disappointment, heart ache, despair and frustration, but I don't know how I would have gotten through those times without the ability to rely on my Savior. As for my parents and siblings, though my brother and two sisters were baptized as well as my mom, only myself and my older sister are currently active in the church. My father to this day has not come unto Christ and adamantly denies His existence. It is my hope that one day all of my family can come unto the Savior, feel of His love, feel of their divinity as Sons and daughters of God, and partake of the blessings that living a Christ like life brings. I love this gospel. I love what it does in encouraging me to be a more perfect person, and I am grateful for the relationship I have with my Heavenly Father and my Savior. I know the church is true! I know the scriptures are true and I know that prayer is our divine form of communication with our Father in Heaven. I am a mormon because I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is God's church on the earth today. He is at the head of it and I am honored to be a part of it. I know of His divinity and will continue to learn and grow in order to become more like him.

How I live my faith

In my current ward I am the Compassionate Service Assistant. Meaning, I get to do service and a lot of it! I think serving others is the best way to grow in love for them as well as in love for our Savior. It's also such a neat chance to get to know others. The community we recently moved from participated in a Winter dinner program where people of all different faiths took turns providing dinner to those less fortunate. It was wonderful to see our community come together and love one another no matter what our religious beliefs. I hope to participate in this type of service within the community we just moved to! In church I have been able to serve in various capacities-each of which has taught me how to be a better person. I have seen my weaknesses and have learned from others strengths. The church provides us these callings in order for us to utilize our talents, discover new ones, and work on those that we don't see as talents quite yet. Service is humbling and amazing! I love to serve and I love how much closer it brings me to the Savior. After all, He gave each one of us the greatest act of service ever rendered in this mortal life and we are all indebted to Him. Service is just one way we can attempt to repay His selfless act and I am thankful to be a part of it.
