Hi I'm Corey

I have been raised in Utah. I love engineering and design. I think we can use technology to spread the Gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love everything to do with technology. I love to design things and try to solve everyday problems. I know how to turn wood on a mini-lathe. I also enjoy computer programming, motion graphics, and 3d art. I have many more interests/hobbies; almost too many for my own good.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Church, and I continue to live the Gospel because of the testimony I have built. Many people question why we can't do certain things as members of the Church. They say that if we have agency, why can't we have the freedom to choose to do those things. Yet I hear stories of people who do choose the wrong and destroy their lives and give up their freedom to addictions, some ironically end up in jail. The Gospel is the guard rail that allows me to stay on the path to return to our Heavenly Father. No other choices can bring that kind of happiness. I know this Church is true.

How I live my faith

I enjoy doing family history work. I believe it is important to find out about your family and where you come from. I love listening to uplifting music. I like listening to people like The Tabernacle Choir, The Piano Guys, Lindsey Stirling, and other artists who's music invites the Spirit. I go to places where I hear the promptings of the spirit. When people around me are doing things they shouldn't, I do my best to be an example to them. I believe teaching by example is the best way to bring people to Christ. On November 2, 2016, I will report to the Utah St. George mission where I will serve others and bring them unto Christ.

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

We believe that all individuals should have the opportunity to learn the gospel and come unto Christ. Despite the extraordinary amount of missionaries, there are still places we cannot reach and people who haven't had the opportunity to hear about the gospel. These people have the opportunity to hear about the gospel even after death in the spirit world. There are a multitude of people who are hearing the gospel right now in the spirit world. But in order to achieve eternal life, one must be baptized. Baptism, is an ordinance that must be performed on earth. As members of the church we seek after the names of our ancestors who haven't been baptized, and perform proxy baptisms for them. It is their decision in the spirit world to accept or reject this ordinance. Show more Show less
