Hi I'm Cody

I'm a senior in high school, an aspiring chef, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a currently a senior in high school and getting really exited for graduation. In the fall I will be attending Utah Valley University to get a vocational degree in culinary arts. I can't wait to go to school and start hopefully start a wonderful career as a chef!

Why I am a Mormon

Satan is after me, my eternal soul and happiness and at times he succeeds in making me think that I am inadequate. When this happens it causes a chain reaction of events, I start to think that "well I'm such an awful person and I'm going to hell anyway so why even bother to try to act like a good person", then it moves to "There are so many better people then me why would my father in heaven forgive me", and that finally sends me into "Why would my father in heaven even love me". Through study and the words of the Prophets I have come to the conclusion that my father does love me and that I can feel his love and tenderness for me, a sinful man if I continuously try to better myself. I think of myself as a little child who has done something I know I'm not suppose to, so I try to hide scared that my father will be mad at me and that he won't love me anymore. Every time he suppresses me by not showing anger or hate but comfort because he saw how afraid I was and he handles whatever I did wrong with tenderness that I am so grateful for. My father in heaven loves me and as long as I try to seek him I will feel his love and concern for me even in my most sinful moment.

How I live my faith

I try my best to act like a son of god because he expects no less from me and I shouldn't expect any less from myself either. I try to be an example to other about the church and help them think found of us so that they might be open to the work of the lord. I fail at times but that can be corrected and I can again set my feet on the path leading to my eternal home.
