Hi I'm Corinne Diether

I am a music lover. I plan to travel the world. I am preparing to serve a mission. I am a regular college student. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I am a very artsy person. I love to paint, draw, sing, play guitar, and even dance (I'm not very good but it makes me feel good)! I love to read and I do love to travel. I just got back from spending time in Europe and I already miss it! I love to work out, but also I love food. I just recently finished my first year of college, which has been that best time of my life so far! I met so many new people that have helped me out a lot. I have been introduced to new things and have closer to seeing who I am and who I want to become. Right now I am taking off time from school to prepare for my mission which I will be reporting to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) July 8, 2015! I have been called to serve in the Illinois Chicago Mission!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up Mormon, so as a child I loved the gospel. When I was in middle school I began to struggle. I was bullied and did not see my self worth. This made me think and wonder about God and if he was even there. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that I knew I would see my Dad again. My Dad had past away when I was only three years old and I wanted to meet him. As time went on, things got better. When I got into high school, I still didn't know why I was coming to church or to early morning seminar before school at 6 am! One morning while I was in seminar I had the thought to listen, so I did. My testimony and the knowledge that this was the true church and God was real and was burning inside me. I knew this was where I needed to be. I still struggled after that from time to time, but I have never doubted that there is someone there and that I could not only see my Dad again but Heavenly Father and Christ, my Savior. I got into my senior year and that is when I really started to change. I learned to forgive myself. I have made mistakes like everyone has and some of those have hurt others. This was a big step for me since it had been seven years since then. I am not perfect but each day is a new day to try again. I am now going to be heading off on my mission on July 8, 2015! This has been a huge step for me and has been a test in my faith in my willingness to serve and listen to what the Lord needed me to do. In the end, I am a Mormon because I listened and didn't stop.

How I live my faith

I love to find people that need help. If it is just giving advice or helping with a service project, I want in! I am also going to be serving as a missionary in the Illinois Chicago Mission! I report to the MTC July 8, 2015! When the mission age changed to 19, I was excited to serve a mission, but as time got closer I really didn't want to go. I just kept thinking about everything I would miss. I prayed and pondered about it and decided not to go. Then a week later, while in class the answer popped into my head and all I could think was, "dang it." (haha) I knew I needed to go and I knew even before then. My desire has grown as I have thought about what the Lord has in store for me, even though I am not sure about exactly what that is yet, I do know that the world can wait. I am going to miss my family, but I know I am going to meet people, have new experiences, and maybe even touch someone's heart.
