Hi I'm Cody

I love sports, being active, and being a total goof! And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised on the island of Maui. I'm the oldest of 1. My family means the world to me .I love sports, especially football. I'm currently in college studying Exercise and wellness. I love kicking it with friends, music, and goofing around. One amazing fact about me is that I'm a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the church when I was 15. At the time I was a freshman in high school and I struggled to find who I was and what my purpose of life was. When the missionaries challenged me to read the Book of Mormon and pray to find out if it was true, I took it to heart. As I read and prayed, I slowly realized that I was a child of God and that he loved me and had a purpose for me in this life. I was baptized in April of 2003 and haven't looked back since. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I know it can change lives because it has changed mine. I know that life can be challenging at times, but through the teachings of our Savior, we can receive the strength not only to endure, but to grow and become the children he would want us to be. I know that through Heavenly Father's plan of Happiness that our families can be together forever, and to me that is the ultimate hope, joy, and happiness that the gospel can offer to all. I know even though we make mistakes and feel unworthy sometimes, Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love each and everyone of us unconditionally. I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ was done for each and every one of us so that we can return to the presence of Heavenly Father again. Words cannot express the feeling of gratitude I have for our Savior and for what he has done for me and I will be forever grateful.

How I live my faith

I try to be a friend to everyone. I believe that a humble and grateful attitude goes a long way.I believe that we all need a helping hand. I try to be the person that God and Jesus Christ know I can be.
