Hi I'm Cody Brian Hays

Born and raised in Florida. I played Football for 7 years. I am currently serving a mission in San Diego, CA. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in the great Sunshine State of Florida. Where it is always hot and humid... I grew up playing all kinds of sports, but I focused on football once I was about 12 years old and I have been playing ever since. It is the greatest thing ever! I also love my family, they are the most important thing in the world. My parents have been the best for me. My little brother is literally the reason why I know that prayer is a real thing, because I spent 9 years praying for a little brother and he finally came! I love my little sister she is our Disney princess and my little ray of sunshine. I moved to Utah when i was 18 to live on my own and go work to save up money for my mission. After 8 months of 50 hour work weeks I was able to provide for most of my mission. During that time I got lazy when it came to my personal conversion. i always had a testimony, but I wasn't necessarily converted. This was the point of my life when i really needed to decide if it was really true or not. Now I am on my mission and I love every minute of it. Now I am able to say that I am growing closer and closer to my Heavenly Father. The gospel is simple and perfect. We just need to live it!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed about it and know it is true! It is as simple as that! I can't think of another set of beliefs that focuses on eternal families, high moral standards, serving others, living prophets and apostles, solid organizations and becoming the best that we can be to glorify our Father in heaven. I absolutely love being a member of this church because I know that it is the RESTORED Church of Jesus Christ. If you don't believe it, just pray about it and you will get your answer!

How I live my faith

I am serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to serve in San Diego, California and I am speaking Spanish. I just love being able to share what I know to be true to others. I LOVE BEING A MISSIONARY! It is the best thing that I can be doing with my life!
