Hi I'm Cory

Hello I'm a full-time missionary serving the people of Illinois, an avid fisherman, a rugby player and I'm a Latter-day Saint.

About Me

Im an outdoorsman that finds solice in God's creations. After my mission I plan to study Mathematics and pursue my dream to work at the large Hadron Collided at CERN. I love helping others both physically and spiritually.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm Mormon is more like why I stayed Mormon. I guess the reason why I have stayed as an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is a culmination of two simple things. The first comes from Matthew 7: 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. There is a power found in the righteous fruit found in living the principles of the gospel. Peace and Joy are Are found when we follow the savior and do as he did. TO know what is good you just have to look at the results of your actions. The latter is simple. The Church is True. The greatest thing is I have no need to take anyone's word for it. I have studied for myself, pondered upon those things and have asked God the Eternal Father if those things were true. What a better way to find out what is True or not than asking God?

How I live my faith

I love my faith by striving to be Christlike. As an ultimate example Christ was one who loved all and judged none. He gave freely to those in need and comforted those that stand in need of comfort. That is my goal and although I fall short of perfection I focus on become more Christlike each day.
