Hello Instagram! My name is Bonnie Cordon. I am currently serving as the Young Women General President of the @churchofjesuschrist. You might be wondering, “Who in the world is Bonnie Cordon?” I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ, a mother and grandmother, a farm girl through and through. I may not be the most interesting person in the world, but I do have some great stories about my favorite chickens, growing up on a farm, and some tips on how to be an average track athlete! 🐔🏃‍♀️ I also know God is so aware of all of us, even when things don’t necessarily go our way. He loves you very, very much. I look forward to connecting with you here on Instagram. And while you’re here, you should also connect with @michelledcraig_ and @beckylcraven, who serve with me in the Young Women presidency. They’re just the best! (Photos were taken before the COVID-19 global pandemic.)
