Hi I'm Cody

I grew up on a farm in Utah. I love Photography, and Music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Right now I am a missionary for the Church. I am serving in the Oklahoma Tulsa Mission. I love being a missionary. I know that the things the church teaches are true. I have seen too much good come from living the standards of the church to even question if it is or not.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the church. I am very grateful for that but that is not why I believe in this church. While serving in Oklahoma I have been exposed to a lot of other churches. I have seen verry good churches that are close to God and Christ. I am still a member of this church because I found out for myself that it is true. The thing that we do most as missionaries is invite others to pray and ask God the Father himself if this is the church we should be in. I would not be able to do that if I had not asked for myself. The times that I have seen the biggest miracles for myself on my mission were the times that I was struggling and wanted to know if this really was where God wanted me to be, and if this was what God wanted me to teach people. There are many people that believe they can find the church that fits them and that is good. I can not see how that is what God wants. There is only one Christ and only one way he wants us to live. I am still a Mormon because this church teaches us to become something, Someone, there is more to life then being saved. Yes that is an important part of our spiritual journey. But, I believe there is more to life then that. I believe that we are here to grow spiritually. To learn to serve and love others.

How I live my faith

I am serving a mission. I am helping people come closer to Christ.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

This is a common question for me as a missionary. You talk to a missionary. They will make sure you understand the doctrines of the church. and will help you with the steps to be baptized. Show more Show less

What is faith?

 Faith is one of my favorite principles of the gospel. Every thing we do in life requires faith. When you flip a light switch you believe it is going to turn on a light or you would not try to flip the switch. Faith in Christ is the belief that if you keep the commandments you are doing what God asks of us. If you don't believe in Christ you will not follow Christ. Faith is the first principle of the gospel because when you start to believe you start to make all the other changes God and Christ require of us. Show more Show less
