Hi I'm Cody Meads

I was raised in Pahrump Nevada, I race cars, I am now serving a full time mission and best of all I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I grew up in Pahrump Nevada and I have always enjoyed working outside. I started operating heavy equipment when I was 8 years old and have been doing it ever since. My family owns a construction and interior designing business and I love to work side by side with all of them. When I was 15 years old my Dad was given a race car by one of his good friends and we got into it a little bit and when I turned 16 I was able to get behind the wheel and start my favorite hobby of going out with the family and start racing the car. I enjoy it because it's really fun but the whole family gets to be involved with it weather it's for support or if they are apart of the pit crew everyone is inolved some how. I plan on going to BYU-Idaho after my mission and starting my future family and then taking my role in the family business.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a member of the church but when I was about 17 years old, I wanted to know for myself if the church was actually true. I wanted a sign from God saying YES this is what you need to be doing and Yes I did appear to Joseph Smith and I Yes I did give him that athority that was once lost. I didn't get that, and I don't know if I'll ever get that. Then I read in the bible about how it states that to be awhare of false Prophets but by their fruits ye shall know them. We see in the church of all of these great things that it has and then we read the Book of Mormon and the amazing feelings that come from it when we read it and abide by it's teachings, it's just amazing. That's why im a Mormon because there are so many good fruits from it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying everyday to become more like my Savior and do what he would have me do at every moment he would have me do it. Prayer is such an important part of my life to let God know that I want him to be a huge part of it, and do what he would have me do. I try to be the best example to everyone. I am serving a mission in Tacoma Washington right now and I feel that is the best way that I can live my faith right now. Going to everyone here in this mission and telling them why I believe what I believe and how they can come to know that for themselves too. I live the commandments as best I can but I'm not perfect and that's why I go to Church to be forgiven of the things that I do wrong and I learn how to become better and not mess up as often.
