Hi I'm Corey

I'm a Redneck.I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Louisiana. I am twenty five years old. I am the Youngest of three boys. I am what people call a ginger so that means sunscreen is my best friend. I have two older brothers and my mom raised all three of us by herself. YEP she is amazing!! My hobbies are campin, ridin dirt bikes, playin all sports, workin out, fishin, huntin and all other outdoor activities. I am a pretty simple and laid back guy. A perfect day for me would be relaxin by a nice warm bonfire, with friends and family, the tailgate down, and some beautiful country music in my ears. I have been to a total of five years of college with a associates degree in Process Technology. I am currently attending Southeastern Louisiana University, getting a bachelors degree in Kinesiology ( fitness and human performance)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the church. I stopped going to church when i was fourteen and I came back when i was almost twenty two. As You read this look for what changed in my life and some things that made me start going to church again. I feel some of the reasons i stopped going to church was b/c too many rules, pressure from members etc... While I was in highschool I lost my dad in a car wreck. This pushed me further away from God and I felt gave me a reason too be more young and dumb. Growing up I was happy but I did'nt feel I had much self worth or value. When I was twenty one I started noticing the things I was doing were more degrading than joyful. I was going to college full time and working full time so i didn't have much of a social life. I had a lot of time to really evaluate my life and think about the big picture. This is when I noticed if i want to raise a family of my own I need to find out who I am and what makes me happy instead of trying to please everyone else. I remember coming home one day from college and doing something i haven't done in a while that was saying a prayer to my Heavenly Father. During this prayer I prayed for direction in life and somekind of change. A couple weeks later a member from the church called me to help out with teaching the boy scouts. I accepted the invitation. During my busy schedule of work and school i found time on wednesday nights to help out with scouts up at the chruch. I noticed i had a diffrent feeling when i was around the church members at scouts. Gradually those good feelings got the best of me. Those good feelings i felt led me to act on what i felt and I went to church one Sunday. I couldn't deny what i felt and the rest is history.

How I live my faith

The Purpose of this life is to prepare to meet God. Only through Christ is this possible. Jesus Christ set the perfect example of DOING Gods will even until death. So thats how I live my faith is trying to be like Jesus Christ through ; Charity , virtue, humility, Obedience, Patience etc... We are all Heavnly Fathers children. In Gods eyes we are all brothers and sisters. We are human, therefore we makes mistakes and thats why we are all a big family to be a source of strenth through hard times. Our brother, Jesus Christ , loved us so much that he gave his life for us. We will always be in debt to him.
