Hi I'm Cody

I'm from Indiana and I'm Mormon

About Me

HI, I'm Cody. I'm a crazy, bold , sometimes adventurous , humorous person who likes to have fun. I like to play sports, not very good at them though, spend time with my family, walk my dog, and make people smile. I also like to serve others whenever I can. I served a two year mission in Las Vegas, NV and had a blast!

Why I am a Mormon

It just makes sense to me, why I'm Mormon. I grew up around the church, but I had to decide for myself if it was right for me. So when I was thirteen, I made the decision to take the missionary lessons, the missionaries asked me to pray about the Book of Mormon and after I had read a little I did. After I prayed to know if the Book of Mormon and the church were true I got a good feeling inside that it was a good thing to learn more and join the church. Everything adds up in the Mormon church, Christ's church being on earth once again, our purpose in life is defined, the gospel of Jesus Christ and the ways we can return to live with our Father in Heaven and how to live our lives, so we can receive his blessings. Also being able to feel the spirit when I'm at church and knowing this is where God wants me to be. I also enjoy knowing that I can one day live with the family again in Heaven!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example of Jesus Christ. I am no where near perfect, but everyday I get a little closer by keeping the commandments of God, asking for forgiveness of my mistakes, and serving others around me. I strive to live the words of Jesus Christ that I read in the Bible and Book of Mormon by doing this it helps me become a better Son of God and to feel his love. I go to church and worship God and Jesus Christ and I serve where they want me to the best of my ability. I also go to the temple to learn more and to be strengthened by the spirit of God. Living Jesus Christ gospel has truly brought me happiness and peace that I have never experienced before.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Cody
We can increase our faith in Jesus Christ by follow his example(even though it's hard sometimes), obeying the commandments, and serving others. We can believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior and redeemer and apply his sacrifice to be forgiven of our mistakes and to pick us up when we stumble. We can also pray to God and give him thanks and gratitude for all he has given us. As long as we trying our best we can receive God's blessings and feel his love more in our lives as we increase our faith in his Son Jesus Christ. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Cody
It's great, the best decision that I ever made is joining the church. Being a member of the Mormon church is awesome, it brings the peace, happiness, and joy,that I need in life and allows me to serve others. If your thinking about joining the church or want to learn about it, just ask anybody that's Mormon or the missionaries and they'll be happy to tell you of the happiness that you can find in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
