Hi I'm Cody
I love being with my family, I love being outdoors, I love having fun! I live in the state that has the greatest snow on earth, Utah. I snowboard, play football and other sports, read an occasional book, watch movies and hang out, you know the usual stuff. I have given all of this up and left it behind as well as my family and home to serve a mission for 2 years. I am now serving in Jacksonville, Florida as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was called to the Florida Jacksonville Mission by a prophet of God. I love serving my God and my Savior Jesus Christ and sharing their gospel with all those I can!
Why I am a Mormon
I am what I am because the Lord has answered my prayers and given me divine guidance in life. I know this gospel and the teachings of Christ to be true. I know the Lord has called a Prophet, who speaks in his behalf, today on the earth. I know Joseph Smith was that prophet who restored the true Church of Christ again on the earth. I greatly value my family and I know that this gospel is what seals us together for eternity, I want those blessings upon the heads of my children and their children. I am what I am because the Lord has told me these things are true from a witness of the Holy Ghost.
Please share your feelings/testimony of the Restoration of the Gospel.
I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is our Savior's church once again established on the earth. It was established through the Prophet Joseph Smith whom our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to. I know that Spring morning in 1820 was a day that changed the world forever. One experience that helped me to gain and stronger testimony or belief of Joseph Smith was when I was in the Missionary Training Center, training to become a full time missionary, and was giving a practice lesson to another fellow missionary. I was sharing the account of Joseph's vision and what happened that day when an overwhelming feeling came over me, so powerful testified to me by the Holy Ghost, that I knew without a doubt at that moment that Joseph Smith DID see our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ and that he WAS called to be a prophet in these latter-days. I know Jesus Christ lives and has restored his church again today and leads and guides it.
How I live my faith
I live my faith right now by serving a two year mission for the Lord. I go out and talk to people for 11 hours a day and tell them about this amazing and eternal message that I know to be true. I teach people the message of the restored gospel and invite them to find out for themselves. I read my scriptures, I pray to God, and I seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost in my life. At home I went to church each week and served in different aspects of the church as a youth. I represented the Lord by my example in living a life of high standards and still strive to do so.
