Hi I'm Cody

I'm a high school senior. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a bagger at my local grocery store. I enjoy hiking with my family and simply spending time with them. I also enjoy making movies with my family, cousins, and friends and being able to watch our shenanigans years later. I'm leaving to serve for two years in the Missouri, St. Louis Mission near the end of July this year (2013). When I return, I plan to attend my local university, although I'm still not sure of what I will be studying.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I love the peace and joy that comes with the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of His Gospel, I know what my purpose is here in life. I know that I have a loving, caring Heavenly Father who will help me along the way. I know my true identity and the very real relationship we have with our Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are led by His ordained servants, modern prophets and apostles, in a world that is growing ever darker. I know that He lives, and that He has made a way for us to return to live in His presence for eternity in joy and happiness with our family and loved ones.

How I live my faith

I help my Bishop and other leaders in leading the young men that are 16 or 17 years old in our ward. I also go with my dad to some of our neighbors' homes and teach their families once a month. I also help to spread the news of upcoming activities in the ward. As I said before, I'm leaving at the end of July 2013 to serve a full-time mission in the city of St. Louis, Missouri.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Cody
We believe that Jesus Christ is the literal Son of God, and suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross to allow us to repent of our sins. As He was resurrected, Jesus Christ overcame death. Because of Him, we are all given the gift of resurrection as well, to have our spirits be eternally re-united with our bodies. Jesus Christ, in His infinite wisdom, will be our Judge at the judgement day. Show more Show less
