Hi I'm Cody

I'm from Colorado. I'm a basketball fanatic. I like to make people smile. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Aurora, Colorado almost my whole life. I am the oldest of 6. I have 4 little brothers and a younger sister as well. I am serving a two year mission right now in Detroit Michigan. I did a year of college at byu-i before I left on my mission. I love all sports especially basketball.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized at the age of 8. I grew up in the church except I never really understood the magnitude of what I was a part of. I had a lot of older friends that went on missions and so I followed their example assuming it would probably be a good thing to do. I never could honestly say that I "knew" that the church was true until I came out on my mission. We profess that we are Christs' church and I wanted to say it with conviction so I began studying the bible to see what exactly did Christs' church consist of. I have come to know with a surety that there is only one church on this earth that is indeed Christs' church once again established on this earth with the same authority and same organization that he had when he was here. That church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints...hence I am a member.

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith at this point in time is by giving these two years of my life to the Lord to preach the gospel and gather his lost children. After my mission I plan on living by the same principles I teach now so that I to may eventually live with him again.

What is the Book of Mormon?

We know that the bible is a collection of writings of the Prophets when Christ visited them over in Jerusalem. He had other children on this earth at the same time that were not in Jerusalem and were living over on the American Continent. He visited them as well and they wrote their dealings when he came to them. The book of Mormon (stick of Joseph) and the Bible (stick of Judah) both teach the same gospel they are just two different accounts from two different parts of the world. In Ezekiel 37:15-17 it talks about how they will come together and work one in thine hand. This is why we use both the Book of Mormon as well as the bible. Show more Show less
