Hi I'm Corey Thomas Lester

I was born in Salt Lake City. I graduated from Logan HS and attended the University of Utah for a semester and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I was born into the Mormon church which I am grateful for. I graduated from high school in 2012 and I just finished my first semester of college at the University of Utah. I enjoy watching T.V. and movies. I like to play video games and read. I especially love to read comic books as well as fantasy/Sci-Fi novels.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that loves the LDS Gospel. I have grown up going to church and hearing the Book of Mormon stories since I can remember. When I was a child I could rely on my parents testimony I didn't need to know for my self. When I was sixteen, I started to wonder if I had known for myself of if I had just coasted on my family to know for me. There was a time when I questioned a lot of what the church stands for and I didn't see the need for many of the covenants that I had made at baptism.I eventually had to find out for myself if this was the right church. I prayed and fasted for a decision, but one never hit me until I started reading the Book of Mormon personally. Once I had done that my testimony was born, and my continual conversion continued after that.

How I live my faith

I was born into a family that takes the LDS religion very serious and that helped me spark a testimony of my own. I was baptized into the church when I was eight years old, and received the Aaronic Priesthood when I was twelve. I have recently received my mission call to Donetsk, Ukraine.
