Hi I'm Cody

I grew up in West Bountiful, Utah. I'm a baseball fan, a photographer, and currently a missionary. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, my name is Cody. I've been a long time baseball fan and player. I love sports, especially getting outside and playing them. I love to be outside and love being active. My favorite hobby I do is photography, as it allows me to express myself in ways I never thought possible. I also love spending time with my family and doing fun activities with them. My family is my life line. I truly do have so much love for them. I am always trying to serve people in any way that I can. I am a person who likes to see others happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon because of the joy it brings me. I know that Jesus Christ has set the example and I have seen many blessing come from following His example. I am far from perfect, but I also know that there has been given to us a chance to repent and be made clean. I continue to live my faith as a Mormon because of the many blessings I have seen come from it. I have also seen how my family has been strenghtened upon the principles of the gospel. I could not imagine being as happy as I am without the knowledge of the restored gospel that is here on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being the best that I can. If the Bishop or any other leaders have an assignments for me to do, I always graciously accept. I am currently serving a two year mission in the Tennessee Nashville Mission. I love it and have seen many blessing come from following Jesus. Being a missionary is such a great opporutunity because it gives me a chance to be able to teach others and share my testimony and to share this message, which I know to be true.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

As a missionary we share a message about the love that Heavenly Father has for us and also about Jesus Christ that builds faith in Him and allows for us to more so realize the many blessings He has made available for us today. What we share does not take away from people's faith they have already developed, but helps build it and teaches and testifies that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer and that He loves everybody!

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes, I truly do believe there is a prophet alive today. Our Heavenly Father has very much love for us and has provided many ways for us to be able to follow His paths. Things such as the scriptures, prayer, and prophets. Throughout the Bible, God has always had a Prophet leading and guiding His Church. Knowing that God still has the same amount of love for us as He does the people in the past, He has again blessed us with the wonderful opportunity to follow a chosen prophet. That prophet's name is Thomas S. Monson, and he truly is a prophet of God. Show more Show less
