Hi I'm Corey

I'm a hockey player, i love leading and serving, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spent most of my childhood in Las Vegas, Nevada, and when I was about 13 I moved to Idaho falls, Idaho, where I went to and graduated from high school. I have lived in a few different places since then, and am currently serving a mission in Texas. I love snowboarding, rock climbing, hiking and camping, golfing and most any other sport, especially hockey. Hockey has been a huge part of my life and it has taught me many great things that I probably would not have otherwise learned. I have been especially grateful for the principles of leadership and dedication that I have learned and have since applied, and for the desire I have gained to be successful in everything I do. I have also learned how to take responsibility for my own actions, and that by doing so is how we repent and change and progress. I have been a member all my life, I have 1 sibling, a younger brother. I often hear the question, " are you sure your Mormon with that kind of family?"

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of this church solely because I chose to act on what was given to me. As I learned the gospel, I acted on it. Acting on the principles of the gospel, putting them to the test, is a choice, and you cannot know if any of it is true or from god if it's not first acted upon. Belief comes from results and belief dictates action. We have to know the result before we can believe and we always act on our beliefs.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply living what I learn. I do my best to honor my covenants and to apply principles of the gospel to my day to day life and these practices have brought me great happiness and confidence. I am currently serving a mission, and I love my mission. I love it because it has helped me to repair my relationship with God, and from my experiences I have come to know that this is the single most important thing we can do in this life. I have had many experiences that have taught me many things, but none so great and so refining as my mission. I have learned how to literally build my foundation on the rock of our redeemer. (Helaman 5:12) I have learned also the importance of making and keeping covenants with God, such as baptism and those made in the holy temple of God. I have learned through my mission (though these principles can be learned through other means whereby we gain personal revelation, like through consistent scripture study, prayer and church attendance), how to be a covenant driven person. This is the way to a happy and most fulfilling life now, and eternal joy in the life to come. There is no other source of motivation so compelling and so rewarding. I
