Hi I'm Kody

I love to Laugh, I love Sports, and I love being happy

About Me

I'm 21 years old, going through life 1 day at a time, and am loving it. i love to laugh and be happy, which rarely happens when your alone, i love to be with people and to make them smile. I believe the Gospel is a Gospel of happiness, and that we are meant to have joy in this life. I am number 2 of 5 kids and am the oldest boy. I have an older sister, a younger brother, and two younger sisters. My family is really close so when everyone is home we enjoy spending time together. My parents are great examples to me. Both my parents serve in the Church and are faithful members that inspire me to always do better. I love my family and I know they love me. That is my favorite thing about life - being loved and loving back, regardless of circumstances that we may be in.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ because i enjoy feeling Heavenly Fathers presence. I grew up going to church, and doing the "Mormon" things like seminary and youth activities, but i never actually got it. I didn't decide to take church home with me, i decided that fun and happiness was found walking my own path. little did i know.. I came to a point in my life where i decided i needed a change. i was tired of looking up at the ceiling and not being happy, or being surrounded with people and feeling alone. Nothing i tried seemed to fill this hole. well i finally decided to listen to my family and some friends who always stuck by me, seeing me as what i could be not what i was. i decided and go to church, and the first time. nothing happened. and i have found that for me, coming closer to God is rarely a one time activity, a one time prayer, or one time scripture read. But feeling God's love and coming close to Him is a process. I started to read the Book of Mormon and started praying about it asking God if this was really his word. And i got an answer. The Book of Mormon really is His word, It is true, Joseph Smith was telling the truth. And i experienced it. i Found myself living the life taught within it, and there it was. The joy i was looking for was always waiting to be discovered, but i had to be searching in the right place. God's Speaks today. And i was finally ready to listen. Happiness is found with God. that is why i am here.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by living a life that I don't have to have any regrets or the thoughts of "oh... if only...", I make mistakes but I know that Heavenly Father provided a way for me to get over those, to be cleansed so I can live with Him again. So i don't need to worry, i need only to believe and keep moving forward, because God can't direct my path if i'm not walking.. One of the best experiences is hearing someone say "oh, you just made my day!" I love serving others and serving God because he said "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." And i have never been part of another organization, or group, or church, or anything else that allows me to practice Christianity so fully so that i can actually live what i believe. This is where miracles happen. Currently I am Serving the People in Georgia. I am out here as a Full-time missionary and am just trying to help people in any way i can. Whether that is sharing our unique message to the world, or by raking some of the millions of leaves that fall i this part of God's beautiful earth.
