Hi I'm Korbi

I'm a spunky mom and wife. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in southern Idaho on a farm moving handlines and driving tractors. After graduating high school and attending some college I decided to volunteer for 6 months in Guatemala teaching the english language to preschool children, who will forever hold a soft spot in my heart. Upon returning I met and married my husband in a matter of months ater he won me over on our first date taking me to a Brad Paisley concert. I am now a mother of two; my son is in kindergarten and my daughter is in preschool. I am pregnant with my second daughter who is due after Christmas. I coach gymnastic classes, but stay home raising my children for the most part, and mixing in running a gymnastics center and preschool with my sister. My husband travels a lot for work and we like to go with him as often as we can, but now that the kids are in school I am more often sitting in parent pick up lines and volunteering during reading groups and field trips. My grandmother always asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I always answered, "a mom," so I am exactly where I have always wanted to be, as a mother and a wife. I taught myself how to knit and have taken up such "domestic" things as quilting and canning. Reading, refinishing furniture saved from junk yards, and anything else crafty that I can get my hands on take up any free time that I find.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I was born into the religion and I stayed in the religion because I know that it is true. I grew up attending Primary and church activities with my parents and siblings, borrowing others testimonies of the church, but it wasn't until in the middle of my first year of college that I found my own testimony of the church and after I found that, there really was no stopping me. It was like I'd finally boarded the right train. I completely flipped my life around, changed schools, changed the "scenery" that I was a part of, and grasped firmly to the gospel of Jesus Christ. A friend had shared his testimony with me and I saw the conviction on his face and I wanted to have a part of that for myself. So call it selfishness or jealousy even, but I wanted to have that surety about something. And I found it. I found it in the gospel, in the members of the LDS church, in the service to others, and in the pure love of Christ. And I have never been more sure of anything in my entire life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith the same way that I live my life. Fully. They are intertwined as one. I just recently worked with young children and was my son's teacher. I have served many times as teacher for the little ones. I must say that although one of the most challenging things I have done, it has also been some of my favorite times, as I have also been a preschool teacher for many years. So I really get to connect with their sponge like little minds and questioning and trusting personalities. They think, "God loves me? That's great! I love him too!" They don't question, they feel it. I was given a new volunteer position to work with a girls group ages 8 and 9. I have worked with this age before and am quite excited about it. I love being able to mentor this age and bring them into their new age group and feelings that they are about to encounter and struggle and maybe even sail straight through. I hold a sewing class 2 times a month at my house for anyone that wishes to attend. I organize teachers from our church that have great skills that they get to pass on to those in attendance and then I get a guarantee that I get to sew at least twice a month! I love it! I am also on a commitee that organizes activities for the women of our ward. I also visit with 2 gals once a month and share a gospel message with them and we get to chat about our kids and fun stuff that we have been up to. I have a partner in crime that goes with me on these visits. She is quite a bit older than me and one of the nicest people that I have ever met and we make quite a team!

Why is it important for us to take care of our bodies? Why are our bodies called temples of God in the Bible?

It is important to take care of your body because our bodies are a gift to us from our Father in Heaven. Like any gift that we are given it is important to take care of it in order to show love and respect for the gift giver. And although our bodies are on loan to us, they are the only one that we get. So if we only got one car, or one house, it makes sense to take care of it right? That way we can help our body to last as long as possible, with also treating it with the utmost respect that it deserves. Show more Show less
