Hi I'm Cody

I'm from Utah. I love sports, music, and art. I'm serving a mission in Honolulu, Hawaii. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 19 years old. I am currently serving a mission, going to Honolulu Hawaii. I have 8 people in my family, I love them a ton. I love playing sports. My favorites would have to be basketball and football, but I have recently been converted to loving soccer too. I love listening to and playing music. Some of the instruments I enjoy playing are piano, guitar, banjo, and drums and I just bought myself a uke. Music is something that really helps me in so many ways in my life. I love art. I am going to be majoring in Graphic Design at BYU when I get back from my mission. I love the Gospel and am so grateful for the opportunity I have to serve the Lord and help people come to the knowledge of the Restored Gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised as a Mormon. My parents are both members. But just like people that are converted to the Church later on in their lives, I had to come to know for myself. I have always believed in the Gospel because that is what my parents taught me. But it came to a point where I needed to know for myself. So I read, and I pondered and I prayed to know for myself. I know that through the Holy Ghost, God can reveal to us the truth. I continue to strive to live as a Mormon because I know it has blessed my life and my family's life. I want it to continue to bless me and my future family. I want to be able to be sealed in the temple to my wife and kids someday for eternity. I love this Gospel. It brings me so much peace and happiness. I do not know what I would do without it.

How I live my faith

I have always attended church. I know when there were weeks that I was sick and wasn't able to go, I felt a negative difference in my life. I've tried to do my best whenever I have had callings or responsibilities in the church to fulfill those and serve others. The way that I am living my faith right now, is by serving a mission. It is a very hard thing to leave my family and loved ones, but I know it is what the Lord wants me to do and I'm striving to do my best to follow his will. I know that my family will be blessed as I try my hardest to help other people and their families through missionary work.
