Hi I'm Cody Paxman

I`m an athlete, family-lover, food-lover, and I love life. I love that I`m a Mormon

About Me

My name`s Cody Paxman and I love life. I love everything about it. I love my family, my friends, good food, and I`m a huge fan of sports. I love playing all of them. I mainly play soccer, football, basketball, and wrestling. But I`m always willing to play and accept any challenge with any sport. I studied one semester at BYU-I and then recieved my call for my mission. I will be serving in Chile, Santiago East. I can`t wait to get there to serve and teach the gospel to people there. I`m grateful for the gospel in my life and can`t wait to share the happiness it brings with other families.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but I still had to come to know that it was true for myself. I came to know through prayer and my own personal study. I am so glad that I am a member of this church and glad to say that my family is as well. I have seen the blessings that come with the gospel and the happiness that one can have with it. I know that God loves us and that he really is watching over us. He gave us this perfect gospel so that we could be happy with our families and so that we can live with them forever. I`m so glad that I`m a Mormon. I wouldn`t give it up for anything.

How I live my faith

I have always loved having opportunities to serve. There are always tons of things we can do to serve. I have always tried to look for those opportunites and tried to serve. Recently I have been preparing to go serve my mission in Chile. I am leaving to go serve in Santiago for 2 years.
