Hi I'm Kody

I was born in Germany in a U.S. military hospital. I've lived most of my life in Texas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young adult. I graduated high school June 2012. I was born with mild cerebral palsy and intellectual disabilities (aka mental retardation). I also have speech difficulties and scoliosis. But that does not define who I am. I am a Special Olympics athlete. I play basketball, bocce ball, softball, and I run track. My favorite is basketball. I also love video games. I own a Wii, Playstation 2, Xbox, Kinnect, and 3DS. My favorite game is Kingdom Hearts. I love to play Yugi-oh. I have a huge collection.

Why I am a Mormon

I KNOW that this church is true. I KNOW Heavenly Father loves me. I KNOW Jesus Christ lived on this earth and died for my sins. I KNOW the Book of Mormon teaches me about Jesus. I KNOW that prophets are real.

How I live my faith

I have been attending church since I was 10 years old. My mom is a convert and joined the church in 2003. I was baptized last month (February 2013). My mom wanted me to wait until she knew for sure that I was ready to make the choice on my own. I love the church. I have participated in a TREK, have gone Boy Scout camping, and participate with the Young Men. I attend Sacrament meetings, Sunday School, and Young Men on Sundays. I have also participated with local community service projects. I cannot wait to Home Teach (visiting members each month) and going door to door with the missionaries. I love my God and my church.
