Hi I'm Kody

I grew up in a small town in Utah, I am a wrestler, golfer, and a race car driver. I love the Outdoors and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Family is so impotant to me! I grew up with amazing parents who taught me how to work hard and be my best at everything I do and show love for those I am around wherever I go! I was taught at a young age how to work construction and spent alot of time each summer helping my father with our construction business. I love watching movies and spending time with Miss Lemon! I love to Golf! I have been a wrestler my whole life and was very blessed to be apart of 2 Highschool championships. I like anything that involves going fast! Spending time at the Race track and building race cars has been one of my best memories in life..I know that I enjoyed the time I was able to spend with my dad there. I love the Outdoors. I am always happy when I get the chance to be Outside enjoying the beauty of this Earth, whether it is Camping, Fishing, Hunting or watching a good sunset! There is nothing that beats the Western Skies! I am Currently serving a Latter Day Saint Mission in Spokane, WA. It is the best decision I have ever made in my life. My senior year in High school I had a severe injury that caused alot of damage to my spinal cord. I ended up in the hospital for what seemed like a long period of time. The right side of my body was paralyzed. I was in a wheelchair and told I may never walk again. After many prayers and blessings the Lord Preformed a miracle and Restored the movement back in my body! I feel so blessed and never take what the Lord has given me for granted!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for many reasons. The most important thing in the world to me is the family unit and i know that God Loves all his children and he intended on the family being together forever, not just till death do you part. I know that the purpose of this life was for a to recieve our bodies and prepair to meet god. i know that The Gospel of Jesus Christ is here for us so we can return to live with God again. The Savior Jesus Christ is the main focus of our beliefs! I love this church because it is His church and He stands at the head of it. I have Chosen to be a member of this church because I want to follow the saviors example, I know that this is the same organization that Christ set up when he was on the earth over 2000 years ago. We all face trails in life. Everyone does. To me its not "if" the hard times come its "when" are they going to come and how are we going to face them. The savior and His teachings are here for us to help us through these hard times and show us how we can over come them. I know that true happiness comes from this gospel and that God loves each and everyone of his children. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints becasue i have prayed and asked God if the was his church and if the Book of Mormon was true. I have recieved many spiritual confirmations that this Church is true, that Jesus is the Christ, and that we have a prophet on the Earth today and I am so greatful for that! I am a person who is always searching for happiness. I have searched many ways of finding happiness but my true happiness didnt come until I was converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I am so greatful for a loving Heavenly Father and a happy family!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing the gospel with everyone I come in contact with because i want everyone to be as happy as possible in this life. I live my faith by studying my scriptures and praying often each day. I enjoy going to worship services in the church building and watching others accept the gospel. I think that Jesus Christ was the best example for us on how we should live our faith. I know i am not perfect and i will never be but i try my best to have love and charity for all people. Including offering service and support to those in need. I believe that i can learn from all people from different walks of life and that is important to me to learn from everyone I come incontact with. The Apostle Paul taught "be thou an example of the believers" I believe that is very important and I try to be a good example to everyone I am around and to offer a helping hand at all times if needed! Following jesus Christs example is the best way I can live my faith, yes it can be hard at times and I fall short, but He never said it was going to be easy...He only said it was going to be worth It!!

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Kody
We Believe that the Bible is definately the word of God! The Bible is a record of Prophets and Apostles and most all of our scripture has come through these inspired men! God Loves us so much that he has given us this Holy record and preserved it through all these years so we could have the teachings of the Savior and Gods dealings with his people in ancient times. The Bible makes it clear to us that God loves all of His children equally. In adition to the Bible we have the following books as Holy Scripture. The Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ, a record of God’s dealings with the inhabitants of ancient America (2000 BC – 400 AD). The Doctrine and Covenants, a collection of revelations and inspired declarations given for the establishment and regulation of the Church of Jesus Christ in the last days (1830 AD – 1978 AD). The Pearl of Great Price, a selection of revelations, translations, and writings of Joseph Smith. We believe that God has given his word to many dispinsations and diffent people throughout the world and still continues to give revalation to his chilrden! Show more Show less
