Hi I'm Cody

I love all sports, lifting weights and hanging out with girls, friends and family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a full time mission in the "GKLM" Great Kentucky Louisville mission. I grew up in a small town in Idaho and have done alot of work on farms. I love playing around in the mountains riding dirtbikes, going snowboarding, hunting and going camping with family and friends. I am very athletic and love all sports and a good competition. Currently I love going around talking with others about our religion and our saviour Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church by my parents but even being raised in the church there always comes a time when you have to gain a testimony for your self and not go off your parents testimony. It got to that point in my life during and after high school I was still going off my parents testimony and more so just going through the motions of going to church I didnt know for myself that it was true and I made alot of bad decisions during that time of my life. At one point i was in a really dark time in my life and my parents sat me down and told me that they had a feeling that they should talk to me so they did and when they did that i felt the spirit strong for probably the first time that Heavenly Father is there and that he loves us very much no matter what mistakes were making in our life and all He wants is for us to return to the right path. After that experience I have been striving to do the best I can to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I still make many mistakes and so does everyone and that is why God has blessed us with the gift of Repentance through His son Jesus Christ. I have since that experience took the invitation that is in the introduction of the Book of Mormon to read and pray about it and as i have done that over and over I get the same answer from the spirit through the feelings i receive that it is true and because I know that I know that Joseph Smith was truely called to be a Prophet and this church is the same church Christ set up 2000 years ago with the fulness of the gospel.

How I live my faith

Right now I live my faith by teaching the gospel to the people of Kentucky as a missionary for the church. When I return home in a few months I will live my faith by going to church and being involved in church activities and excepting any callings that are extended to me and also by showing people you can still have lots of fun and still follow the gospel.
