Hi I'm Cody

I am a native to Arizona. I enjoy helping my community & making a difference. I like to eat apples & banaynays. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I really enjoy being outdoors and playing sports. One of my favorite outdoors activities is going camping. I love the opportunity to get out into the wild and get away from our very fast paced world. The smell...the smell of a campsite...amazing...Can they make a cologne like that?! Cause I would buy it. haha My favorite sport currently is jump roping. If that even is a sport... I'm seriously the best jump roper this side of the Mississippi and would accept any challengers to a jump off. I currently work for a medical school as a guidance counselor. I love my job because I really enjoy helping people make a difference in their lives. Especially in this difficult time that our country is in economically. I take pride in my students and pushing them to be succesful out their in the medical field. I have a wonderful family and I am so very blessed.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? I know without out a doubt with all of my afflictions and trials throughout my life that this church is true. I know that through the power of prayer we can accomplish anything. Heavenly Father would never give us something that we couldn't handle or get through "with his help". I believe in that. I have experienced that. I have experienced torment, misery, and unhappiness. But through prayer and the scriptures I have found that peace and happiness can be restored. We are on this earth to be tested. Use the tools that our Heavenly Father has given us and do not take the gospel and atonement for granted. He will bless us and if we use his tools (scriptures,prayer,testimony,service,faith,ect.) we can do great works in small ways. I love my Heavenly Father and I am so thankful for the Atonement and the gift of the Holy Ghost. I believe that Joseph Smith restored the gospel upon this earth, and that the gospel remains on this earth today. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our true prophet in this present day. I love my family so very and I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

I am a sunbeams teacher! My wonderful calling in the church is teaching the 3 and 4 year olds the wonderful gospel. I enjoy them so much and their wonderful spirits. One of the fun activities that I do with them towards the end of our lesson is the paper airplane game. I make a single paper airplane and go around the room asking each individual sunbeam a question about the lesson we learned. If and when they answer it correct (sometimes with a little help from me) they attempt to throw the airplane across the room into the trash can. Objective lessons prove to be very useful with this age group. haha They are awesome!

What is faith?

Faith is experience with the things we fear or are unfamilar with and can't see. Faith is taking that first step when you don't even see the stairs. Show more Show less
