Im from st. george ut. im serving a mission in st. louis missouri. I love music of all kinds, and sports. im a mormon

About Me

My name is kody, im currently seving a 2 year mission in st. louis missouri. I love music its my passion! i love to sit and just jam out all day long really. Im also a lover of sports i plan on playing college football when I return as a wide reciever. Im the oldest of four kids and I love my family they mean the absolute world to me, they truly are some of the best people in the world! I love having fun and chilling with friends by far the best thing to do, kickin back and discussing life, gaming on a game of madden or fifa 12, or going out into the woods and havin a bon fire. Im a pretty outgoing person, I like to be everyones friend so im a pretty laid back person for the most part. I think the last thing to know about me is that i love to help others if you ever need anything dont be afraid to ask! So with that peace be unto you.

Why I am a Mormon

Well being born into the church i guess doesnt always mean that you will stay active in it and i definitely did not stay active in the church at all. I went of on a different path and lived a worldly life all i wanted was to party and just have fun. At one point i remember not even believing that there was even a God at all, but then i had a great friend in the church who did his best to get me to activities and such and really showed me gods love for me and that got me really thinking about religion. I searched out a lot of churchs looking for which one would give me my answers that i needed to know. Then i finally decided to give this church a try. I decided to read the book of mormon, and the first night i read it i just opened it up and read Ether chapter 12 and after that night i knew the book of mormon was true. And because of that knowledge I understood that God truly did love me and that i had a purpose in life. My favorite part of the church is that god has a plan for us to be able to return to him and to be able to live with our loved ones for all time and eternity and im so thankful for that knowledge that i can. All this came from whether or not the book of mormon is true, and because it is i know that joseph smith was a true prophet and that thomas s. monson is a prophet today and that God still loves us today and is truly showing that through miracles,and through his gospel. This church is true.

How I live my faith

Right not the way im living my faith is through being a missionary, It truly has been one of the most rewarding things in my entire life. Being able to go out everyday and to talk to people about what the gospel teaches and how it can bless them and there families is a very amazing thing and its brought so much joy and love into my life and the lives of others. I think other then that i really just strive everyday to be a great person, someone people can count on cause i feel thats how christ lived his life always being someone we could all turn to and being that great example.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Kody Anderson
The way I believe we truly strive to increase our faith in christ is to truly search him out. We are givin the bible and the book of mormon as tools in order to do so and to know more about him. As we continue to study, pray and seek him we will gain a stronger faith in him. But we must realize that this all starts from having a desire to know him so we must gain that desire then act on it and as we do so we will gain that understanding we need. Show more Show less
