Hi I'm Cordell

I grew up in Tennessee. I love sports, and I love people. Serving a mission in Veracruz Mexico starting on July 9th!

About Me

I love sports. In high school I played football and I wrestled. I also like to play rugby, soccer, and tennis. I love to read, and Brandon Sanderson is definitely my favorite author. I am preparing to serve a mission in Veracruz, Mexico. I am super excited to be going to Veracruz to serve the Lord, and try to help the people there! After that, I will be going to BYU Provo to study to become a biomedical engineer.

Why I am a Mormon

I not a Mormon just because my parents are, or because it is the traditional religion in my family. I am a Mormon because I have read The Book of Mormon multiple times, and every time the spirit has manifested it's truth to me. I am a Mormon because I have prayed to know if this church is true, and I have received a witness that it is. I am a Mormon because there have been specific instances in my life when I have felt my Savior's love, or when I have felt Heavenly Father's benign hand of blessing. I am a Mormon because the things that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches are so wonderful and so glorious, that I cannot help but have faith.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by always trying to set a good example and by living with integrity. I stand up for my beliefs, even when it is hard to do so. Whenever I make a mistake I try to fix it. I think the most important things that I do to actively live my faith are daily scripture study and prayer. I have found that these basic gospel practices are the most essential to helping us reach any righteous goal we want in life.
