Hi I'm Cody Bagshaw

I was raised in and around the State of Utah, I am an avid writer, love to read, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to write, swim, hang out with friends and family, read, study, and to do anything that involves the outdoors! Specifically my brother and I love to camp and go kayaking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the person it has made me. No other church I have looked into or studied makes me feel and act the way this one does, and it is all based on the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. That book is the most important book on earth and is comparable, and goes hand in hand, with the Bible. Everything this Church is is based on the Book of Mormon, if the Book of Mormon is true nothing else matters. No argument, no question, no disagreement will stand if that book is true; and I know it to be true and to be the word of God. The constant reading, studying, and praying of and over the Book of Mormon has made me the man I am today. Countless people have read and asked God the question of whether or not it is true, and anyone who did it sincerely has received the answer that it is true. The prophet Joseph Smith who received and translated the Book of Mormon by the power of God gave his life because he would not and could not deny its divinity. I challenge anyone who reads this, my testimony, to read the Book of Mormon and then to ask God if it is true, and I promise the same answer I received will come.

How I live my faith

I do everything in my power to build up The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I participate in church on Sunday by teaching the youth and other members of the church. I give service every week with the full time missionaries, I attend a missionary prep class, I go to multiple meetings to organize and help educate myself and other members and non-members, and above all I will soon be serving a full time mission. I live my faith by doing my best to be like Christ in thoughts, words, and deeds. I try to help in all cases and situations and lend a hand of support to those struggling in any way. I spend as much time with my family as possible and help around the house with whatever needs to be done. I give freely of my time in service to others in any way possible. I try to show my love for the Savior in the way I love all of God's children.
