Hi I'm Korrine

Living with 6 brothers was tough being the only girl. My family's rule is if you don't swim you don't eat. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My nature probably would have been much milder if I had grown up in a less hostile environment. It wasn't exactly what you would call healthy, but being a kid with 6 brothers was tough stuff. I am a tom boy at heart because of it, and the kind way to describe myself is unique. The church has shaped my life before I was even here, and it makes me have faith in the tomorrows to come. I come from a long line of competitive swimmers and I specialized in freestyle sprinting events. I was a three time state champion, all state four years, all conference four years, and got about every sports award my school offered. I even shaved my head my senior year, and was told I was quite fearsome. I didn't realize until I was swimming in my freshman year of college that maybe the sport that had made me so happy wasn't what I was here to do. I met my wonderful husband on a LDS dating site that fall, and I felt a kind of happiness that was better than what racing gave me. I had always scoffed at the girls my age who wanted to be stay at home mothers when I had plans to become an Olympian. What was a mother compared to a world class athlete? Now I see more than women staying at home, I see teachers who nurture the precious spirits heavenly father has trusted us to bring into this imperfect world. I can't think of anything I'd rather be than a mother. Before I become a mother though I spend my time with my husband, teaching myself to play the ukulele, and playing with our puppy.

Why I am a Mormon

When my biological mother knew she was pregnant it was the worst feeling she had ever felt. Almost as bad as my mom, her oldest sister, felt after two miscarriages and losing a baby girl. Her body just couldn't carry girls. My testimony is based on my belief that I am supposed to be with my family, and when I couldn't come into the world the way I was meant to Heavenly Father sent me a different way. I know, with my entire being, that I have a great purpose in this world. I also know that I have never lost faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, because I know that he fought for me to be with my family. How could I lose faith in the one who gave me the greatest blessing I've ever known? I feel his love whenever I think of my testimony, and I hope that you have felt something as well.

How I live my faith

I practice through attending my weekly meeting, and I am preparing to be sealed in the temple soon to my husband. I study my scriptures to prepare for what I will feel there. I enjoy the comradery of the women I have met in my area, and the blessings that I receive from having a wonderful bishopric.
