Hi I'm Corril

I am a small town country girl :) I am a basketball player, a snowmobiler, a runner, a missionary, and I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love to play sports and am very competitive person. I'm not one who takes the easy route, I always like a challenge and face up to one whenever it comes my way. In High School I played Basketball and ran Cross Country. I am a small town country girl and I love to go four-wheeling, snowmobiling, and jet skiing. My family means everything to me and they are all that I have. High school was some of the roughest years that I have had to face so far, but it is only because of the gospel of Jesus Christ that I made it through. It has shown me how to know who He is and to find Him in a world that is lost. Trials can be painful and can leave so many scars from our past. I know who Christ is and what His Atonement can do because I have seen it through my experiences and the heartache that I have went through. I have had some dreams in my life that I have wanted to happen, that haven't. Every girl wants that fairy tale ending and Happily Ever After. For me it hasn't happened and for the longest time that was a trial that I had to face. Being alone can be hard, but this gospel and my Savior have given me hope in those moments of doubt and despair. My Savior has healed a broken heart that was shattered and full of scars. My past haunted me and changed who I was. Over time that has changed and it is because of Him. Even though He is gone, that doesn't mean that His miracles have ceased. He can still heal a broken heart and help us through those times that are painful and trying.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church and I knew that it was true because of the things that it has done in my life for me and my family. The activities that we went to always drew me closer to my Savior. When I was younger my family had gone through a lot of trials. Many of them almost ruined my parents marriage and could have torn our family in two. As we lived the gospel and did what was asked of us, things began to change over time. I am Mormon because of that change. It not only changed our family but it changed me as well. I saw the miracles that could come from living this gospel and how much our Savior can help us. During that time our family was quite poor, yet that was one of the happiest times in my childhood and life because it was spent with my family and because we had put God first. We have been so blessed because of it and it has changed me and my family. I am beginning to know who I am as a Daughter of God and what He has planned for me here on Earth. Right now I am serving a Mission in Florida to teach others about Him and to help them find that joy and happiness that I have. Overcoming trials isn't easy nor is changing who you are, but this gospel gives us hope and our Savior helps us to change. My Heavenly Father loved me enough to send His only Begotten Son, that was perfect, here to die for me so that I can live with Him and my family again. The world tells us that we will be happy if we change our outward appearance, but my Savior has taught me that it is when I change myself to become like Him and to know of who He is, that is when I will find true joy and happiness. You don't have to do it alone, that is why He suffered so much pain was so that He could save you and help you during those times that are hard. We don't need a Superman to save us from the world, we need our Savior Jesus Christ to save us from the things that the world is teaching us.

How I live my faith

I have lived my faith by going to church and learning who my Savior is and how I can become like Him. One of the hardest things that I have done to live my faith is to go on a mission. Hands down it is one of the hardest things that I have done and will be one of the hardest things that I ever do. It isn't just about living your faith every Sunday, but living it when our world is falling to pieces and during our trials; those days that are hard to get through and those times where we find the most joy. To me living my faith is striving everyday to find my purpose of who I am and how to return to my Savior and Father in Heaven. I know why I am here, but I am trying to find what it is that they would want me to do here. Taking each day and trying to find what it is that He wants me to learn and how they are preparing me to change. We don't need a hero to save us from the world, but a Savior to save us from the things in the world. That is what I strive towards everyday. I am far from perfect, but I strive to live my faith by following the guidance given to us by our prophet. He is the mouthpiece of our Father. By following his words I am striving to live and walk down the path that my Heavenly Father has set out for me. He knows my trials and my weaknesses and in many ways He understands my pain. He knows who I am. By living what He asks of me I can find happiness in my life and be healed by our Savior. His healing doesn't end nor do the miracles that He performed. Death cannot end that. In fact, it was intended to be that way. Where would my faith be if I wasn't tested and if I could see Him or everything that He taught? Holding onto my Savior and searching for Him in a world that is lost, where we, that believe in Him are becoming the minority, is how I strive to live my faith. I am giving Him a year and a half to follow Him and seek out those who are searching for Him and need His help just as I have.
