Hi I'm Cody

A missionary in the Netherlands, a college basketball player and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up in the Gospel my whole life. I love and live to play basketball, and have the opportunity to continue that after my mission in college. My family means everything to me. I have two brothers and one sister and we are extremely close. I have been blessed to have the best friends a kid could ask for. We are all serving missions and to are representatives of Jesus Christ in different countries around the World. I have been to called serve in the Belgium/Netherlands mission and being on a mission has been the best thing I have ever done.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this is the fully restored gospel that will bring true eternal happiness. I know that through the choices we make, we can live with our father in heaven again. I am blessed and grateful to know that families are together forever. I do know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and was chosen to bring forth the fully restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I also know that through the authority given by our heavenly father, the Book of Mormon was translated. If you read and pray about the Book of Mormon, I know that you can find the truth out for yourself also. I feel so blessed to be able to have this gospel in my life. I can't think of my life without the church in it. I KNOW that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, I know he has called True and Faithful Prophets and Apostles of God who are guiding us along the straight and narrow path.I am so grateful to be able to serve in the Belgium/Netherlands Mission. I am so blessed to have this opportunity to be able serve my father in heaven and invite others to come unto Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. Whether it be by being an example on the basketball court or being an example to my friends. Having church callings and going out with the missionaries really help me stay on the straight and narrow path and to make good choices. I love this gospel and cant think how i would be able to live without the comfort and knowledge it gives me about our Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ.
