Hi I'm Cory

I'm a sister. I'm a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite thing to do is play the piano. I have been playing since I was in first grade and have such a passion for music. I also love to run, play soccer, go to the beach and spend time with my family. I come from a family of six, with one brother and two sisters, and two loving parents. I am the oldest child but also the oldest grandchild of 23 in my family. I love strengthening my relationships with everyone in my family. I just finished my first year at Brigham Young University and have decided to study elementary education. However, I am putting my education on hold for a little while because I will be devoting the next eighteen months to the Lord as I serve a mission in Rosario Argentina. I love the gospel and know that my Savior Jesus Christ lives. I want nothing more than to share the peace and joy these truths give me with the people in Argentina.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that by living the gospel of Jesus Christ, I can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father again. For the longest time I thought that I knew this for myself, but I was really just relying on the testimonies of my parents and friends. It was not until tenth grade when I decided to read the Book of Mormon on my own. In Moroni 10: 4-5 it said to ask of God and that if I asked with "a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you by the power of the Holy Ghost". And that is exactly what I did. I got down on my knees and poured out my heart to Heavenly Father. I have never felt more love and peace and comfort in my heart since that moment. I could not deny that the Book of Mormon was true. Now I am about to go to Argentina and share this message of truth with the people of South America! I know that this church is true. I know that by living the teachings of the Book of Mormon, I will return to live with my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ again. I know that anyone who truly has a desire to know if this book is another testament of Jesus Christ, they will receive an answer just like I did. My life was blessed because of it and I know yours can be too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do better each day. Perfection is impossible, but I know that if I work hard each and every day to be a little kinder, or remember to say my prayers each morning, that the Lord will help strengthen me. I try really hard to be a good example to my younger siblings. Christ has asked us all to follow Him and so that is what I try to do. I know that when I mess up, I can be forgiven and rise up and try again. I believe that that is all He asks of us: to follow His ways but not get discouraged when we fail. He can help us up and will never leave us on our own.
