Hi I'm Corey Stock

I have grown up in Sandy, Utah. I'm in Portugal, Lisbon on a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from Jordan High School in 2012 and put my mission papers in the august following graduation. On August 15th, the day I got my call, i've never been happier in my entire life. I am now serving the Lord for two years! I left my family for two years to help other families spend eternity together. I am in Portugal currently on a mission. I love to play Basketball and I can dunk a ten-footer hoop. Here on my mission we stay active, bike around and have a ton of fun. I love being active and including others around me in whatever it is I am doing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon religion. However, I never actually decided for myself about whether or not I wanted to remain a Mormon for my life until I was 18 and decided to go on a mission. After receiving my call, I have never felt more sure about anything in my life.

How I live my faith

I go to Church both in a regular ward and a Single Adult ward. I spend my hours during the week serving people and participating in church-related activities. I am out here on a mission serving people and helping them come unto Christ. Although there are many hardships on a mission and there are times where you want to go home and live life on a less stressful plane, the longer you serve the Lord with all of your heart, might, mind, and strength with the power of God, the more blessings you will receive. I live my faith every day and I love to do it.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Corey Stock
We help others of every faith or no faith at all because it is the Christian thing to do. We help them find what to put their faith in and listen to them and their beliefs. Show more Show less

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Corey Stock
There is not only one answer to this question, but many. There are many authors to the Book of Mormon who consist of the prophets of the Church over the years in years past way beyond Joseph Smith. Many people believe that it was Joseph Smith who wrote the Book of Mormon but the truth is he translated it from the plates that he was able to receive by being worthy to receive them. It is another testament of Jesus Christ and goes hand in hand with the Bible and both are great testimonies of Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
