Hi I'm Cody

I'm a spring board diver. I'm an international traveler. I live in good old sunny Colorado. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is cody and I have been a spring board diver since I was 9 years old. My big brother got me into the sport at that age and I have been improving ever since. I am a very active person and I love being on my trampoline and hanging out with my family. I have been to 13 different countries and I have lived in 3 different ones and I am only 19 years old. I plan on going to BYU Provo after I have finished my mission to Brazil Teresina. I enjoy hanging out with my friends at school and outside. I am very good at being social and getting other kids involved in other activities. I am a great helper type person when it comes to little kids. I make them feel very comfortable around me. I can always make a little kid laugh and start them to enjoying themselves.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church my entire life. I didn't really understand why I was going when I was really little but I knew that coming to Primary was always a lot of fun for me. Now that I have grown older and received the Priesthood, I am trying to really gain a testimony of my own through going to seminary and going to EFY. Also studying my scriptures is a great way to help me feel the spirit when I am going to sleep. I got challenged by my brother who was on a mission to Prague and returned in March of this year, to read the WHOLE Book Of Mormon in the summer and finish by the time school starts in the fall. Well, I took it upon myself to read 2 chapters a night and by the time school rolled around, I had finished ready the whole book. It was the first time that I had read it at a fast past and I can tell you for sure that it was really amazing. There are so many great stories and things in there that helped me in my everyday life and I was always happy the next day after I had been reading. I can truly say that I know that the Book Of Mormon is true and that Jesus Christ is really our Savior. I know that Joseph Smith was a true Prophet and that he really did see Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ in that grove of trees. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Our Savior, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am one of the older Priest in my ward and I try to live a good example to the little people like the teachers and deacons because I want them to know that taking on a responsibility is a big one and they shouldn't think of it very light-heartly. I help out as much as I can when it comes to helping people move or taking the Sacrament to people that couldn't make it that week. I always like talking to the old people in our ward to see how they are doing and to make sure that they feel like they can keep coming and that they can count on the young people in the ward to help them out when they can. I am currently serving my 2 year mission for the church. I have been assigned to the Brazil Teresina mission, Portuguese speaking.

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book Of Mormon is another witness that Christ really did live and that the Prophets of the olden days wrote about his coming and it is named after Mormon, one of the last Prophets to write about his people. Show more Show less
