Hi I'm Cody Hansen

I grew up in Wyoming. I like playing tennis and being with friends and family. I'm a Missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey, I'm Cody. I enjoy playing tennis and volleyball, hanging out with friends and family, eating, sleeping, and just being myself. I'm the middle child in a family of three brothers and two parents. I'm 6' 9", but do not play basketball. I enjoy music, and play the piano and trombone. I attended college for one year before serving my mission and am majoring in Neuroscience. I'm planning on attending Medical School and becoming an eye or brain surgeon. I enjoy being a member of the church and am excited to be serving as a missionary.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member my whole life. However, I've also been converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ. My conversion story is simple, but true. I read the Book of Mormon to figure out if it was true for myself. I then prayed to know if the book was true. I received confirmation from the Spirit that the Book of Mormon was true. Because the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a prophet. Because Joseph Smith was a prophet, the true church has been restored to the earth in our day. This experience is how I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The church has blessed my life in many ways and I'm proud to be a Mormon. Right now, I'm serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I hope to invite others to Christ by helping them receive the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ on the earth today. I believe that the only way to have true happiness in this life is to follow Christ's example and follow His commandments. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is great and true.
