Hi I'm Cody

I am pretty easy going, love sports, love my family, and I am a Mormon and love it!

About Me

I have lived in Idaho all my life. I served as a missionary for my church. It was amazing! I love serving my Savior! There is no better way to serve him than serving other! I have 2 sisters and 1 brother, all of which are older than me. I am the youngest by about 7 years. I enjoy doing just about anything you can think of. I like doing any sports related activity.I enjoy almost everything outdoors. I love doing just about anything with my family or friends. And I love serving others!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the church since I was born. My dad was raised in the church, but he became inactive for about 10 years after high school. My mom is a convert to the church. The have been going to church since I was born. I was a pretty good kid all of my life by obeying my parents and I followed the commandments of the church, but I never really totally believed in it for along time. I sort of went through the motions. I would feel bad if I had sinned, but I never really did believe until I was almost 17 years old.Then I gained a testimony of its truthfulness! I know that without a doubt that our father in heaven loves all of us. No matter what we do, he will always love us. When we sin, he will be disappointed, but he will still love us and if we repent of our sin, he will remember it no more! While many things will make you happy in life, this is the only thing that will bring you joy. I always see being happy as temporal, but I see joy as being eternal. This church has truly brought me joy! I love it so much! I know that if you come unto Christ and join this church you will find joy! What ever your trails may be, Heavenly Father can help you and he has given his power to the Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, to do so. I say these things in the name of the Lord, our Savior, and Redeemer of the World, Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

I try my best to live my faith everyday. It can be tough sometimes. Satan tempts me everyday to commit sin, but I always work hard. I have also accepted my Heavenly Father's request to have every worthy, able young men to serve a mission. I am currently on my mission striving to bring other to come unto Christ and feel that love that I have felt. I am striving to "look outward" and not think about myself and focus on others so they may feel my love and God's love for them. It has been well worth it so far! I really feel like I need to serve my Father in Heaven for all the blessings I have received. I have had the opportunity to serve as a missionary inviting other to hear the message which is so important to me. It has changed my life! I loved to share the gospel. It is sad that it is over, but I am grateful for the opportunity to do so! I have learned so much about myself!
