Hi I'm Cory

I grew up in Colorado. I am going to school to become a programmer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a college student. I am studying computer science. I like to program video games and other small applications. Even though I am a little older, I still enjoy cartoons and superhero movies. I think that no matter how old you are you can still enjoy a good adventure, be it on the screen or in real life. I like going camping when I can explore the wilderness and discover things that others may not have ever seen. My favorite view on earth is the Cirque of the Towers in Wyoming. Standing in that amazing formation really brings home the feelings that this is not all just an accident, but that there was an artist behind it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and was always taught the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I tried hard as a child to live them, but never really understood why. When the time came, I set out on a mission for the church, staying obedient to what I was taught as a child. It was there, teaching the gospel to others, that I found out why. As I shared the gospel, I discovered why it was so important to me. I understood the connection between the gospel and happiness. I saw the power of the spirit work in others to help heal them of the wounds the eye can't see. I saw the pains of loved ones lost replaced by the comfort that they will be seen again. I saw the struggles of addicts be replaced by a powerful inner strength. Most importantly though, I myself felt the beautiful power of the spirit lift me through hard times, guide me through dark times, and strengthen me through challenges of my own. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love my Savior. I am a Mormon because life would be too hard if I wasn't. Life would be to hard alone.

How I live my faith

I currently help with a home teaching program. The men in the church reach out to the members of the church by going to their home to teach and help them. Teaching the members of the church is a great opportunity to connect more with our fellow members and help each other to continue to grow closer to the Savior. I also have home teachers that come to my home. I am grateful for their love and their help in my struggles.
