Hi I'm Corban Gardner

I am from Palisade, CO, I am an outdoor enthusiast, I love sports, and I love my faith, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

My name is Corban. I am currently 23 years old and single. I am living in a nice little city (Grand Junction) on the western slope of Colorado. Some people say that I have too many hobbies but I say that I love to learn. I am good at working with my hands and love the feeling of creating something with the tallent God has given me. I am and athlete and love sports but mostly love the game of football. Played for quite some time. I love trying new things and having outdoor adventures. Among my fun I love to be with family and friends and enjoy their company. I have attended college and plan on continuing my education in hopes of getting my degree. I love hard work! The reward you get outweighs the tasks you've done. Las of all I love this gospel with all my heart and owe the Lord for everything he has given me.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because this is the only church that claims to be the true church of Jesus Christ on the earth again today. It meets all of the requirements and criteria that Christ established while he was on the earth. There is no place better and no place that I have felt more joy and love in my life than in this church and living this gospel. It teaches of love and kindness but most importantly it teaches me my relationship with my father and my relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I feel like too many people today forget or don't understand who they are, where they came from, and who they can become with the Lord's help. I feel blessed to be a part of such a faith and to be guided by a living and true prophet on the earth today. God knows us and loves us and wants all to come unto Him. Living His comandments is how I can return to live with Him and my family again some day and if I can share this with all that I know then I can have joy with them in the kingdom of my Father too. That is why I am here and why I am a mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through example. I strive to be my best, to volunteer, to help other people in their time of need. I try to live my life as the Savior would every day. He loved those who hated him and served those who used him. Some times I don't live up to that example but all he asks of me is to do my very best. Every day is a new day and every day I can start again. To live my faith is to be in constant motion. I always try to do good and build those around me. Sometimes it only takes a smile and some times much more but it is always worth the little bit of effort. By living my faith I believe that I can make a difference and set a good example in my home and in my community.
