Hi I'm Koree

I like bacon and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

While I'm not busy enjoying the taste of bacon... I'm busy maintaining a supercomputer. I know this may seem a little far fetched for anyone, but it's legit. I do bash shell scripting, replace skittish hardware, and turn things off and on. It's pretty much like the movies but with less driving lightcycles and more desk work. I am also over 30 and single. But don't get me wrong... I'm not your typical socially awkward IT professional. I have been known to snowboard, hike, chop wood, and listen to techno (I believe this is due my Polish heritage). I find fulfillment in setting goals and physical activity. Aside from running over 10 miles weekly I plan to master a cartwheel by 2015. Likes: The feeling of new socks, hot sauce, and solar energy Dislikes: Medical waste, cold fries, wax museums.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a Mormon? Because the gospel of Jesus Christ makes sense. Anyone who takes serious the claims of the "Mormon" message will find that is brings them closer to Christ. It will add purpose to their life and expand their capacities for happiness, love, and understanding. What I have learned through the teachings of the Gospel has changed my life. I know Christ is the only way to perfection and back to our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Through a twist of fates I have become a small business owner in addition to my full-time job. It's been many years since I've had a piano lesson, but I now own a school specializing in classical music education. This has significantly changed my life and made me a little more... stressed. But it has also provided many opportunities of service and growth. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God" - Romans 8:28 I also spend several hours weekly in church and community service. This includes training, technology support, and good old fashion sweaty labor. Sometimes I feel pretty overwhelmed and alone. So why and how do I do manage this? I have some amazing friends and family that support me. In addition (and most important), God helps to fill in for my inadequacies. I find my relationship with God and others is improved through sincere service. Sometimes all I can offer is a smile or the occasional high five, but I know it makes a difference. It has for me. "And behold, I tell you these things that ye may learn wisdom; that ye may learn that when ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God." Mosiah 2:17

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Koree
Around age 5 I remember deciding it was time to move out and take on the world. The thought of being "together forever" was frustrating to me. I remember thinking, "I don't want to live at home FOREVER!!" I was pretty sure I was being grounded for life. Fortunately, I quickly found clarification and realized this didn't mean I had to live at home forever. While all of our families may be a little... qwerky... and a little crazy... hopefully we find a way to love them. Whether we are growing up in a family or are starting our own, I'm glad God has made it possible that we can keep those relationships beyond death (but won't force us to live at home with our parents forever).
