Hi I'm Cody Lauder

I grew up in Provo, Utah. I served my lds mission in Berlin, Germany. I love to film and to make video's. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years old, Graduated from high school last year at Lehi High School. I love to film anything! When I was in high school I was in the video program. I went to this competition called skill's USA and took first in state and went to nationals! I have two family's! My mom and dad had 3 kids me, Kendra, and Kandis then they were divorced and both remarried. On my dad's (Jeff Lauder) side of the family he married my step-mom Diana, Diana already had 3 wonderful daughter's. Brandi is married to Travis Elnicky and they now have 1 beautiful baby boy named Rivers. Brooklyn is married to Jeremy Wise. Abbie is my same age, she is 19 and she is going to school. On my Mom's side of the family; she married my amazing step-dad Roger Comstock and they had one child together Kylee. Roger had 3 kids of his own Roger, Brooke who married Nolan Haycock, and Mccall. I love all of my family so much! They are who i spend all of my time with. I wish I could always be with them. They are my life until I have my own family.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of this church when I was 8 years old by being baptized and confirmed a member of the church. I really did not know the meaning of it then. About when I was 17 I was tired of always being sad in my life with the choices I was making. I decided I would put all of my effort into knowing if this gospel is for me. I went to a quiet place in my mom's home and read from The Book of Mormon Moroni chapter 10. In Moroni chapter 10 it ask's you to pray to know if this book is true. As I was praying I had an overwhelming feeling come over me. It felt like someone was heating my heart up. With that soft little burning feeling I recognized that was the holy ghost. I can feel his presence all the time now. I live my life the way our savior Jesus Christ would want me to live it. I am so much happier now than I was two years ago. This gospel's principles make you a better person know matter what religious background you have. I am a Mormon because I have the foundation that I know that the Book of Mormon is a book from god written through his prophets in the america's translated by Joseph Smith and is the most correct book of gods principles. We believe it is another testament of Christ. We believe The Bible to be the word of god and The Bible goes hand in hand with The Book of Mormon. I know that this church is true!!!!!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my actions. I always try to make my heavenly father happy with me. I will always try to be a better person. I will mess up every once in a while but that is why this gospel is such a blessing to me. when I mess up I can always realize what I did wrong, fix it , never do it again, and ask for forgiveness. First i must forgive myself that is the hardest thing for me. The lord will forgive me but I also need to forgive myself also. I always look for anyone and everyone who could use my help. If your a stranger I will always try and help you. If your someone I know you know I will be the first one to help. In my community we have a lot of elderly folks who love having a yard. I love helping them weed it and take care of it so they have something nice to look at. Everyone can always help people. Look for people you can help today and watch how happy you will be just helping someone put their cart back at the grocery store or whatever it may be help someone today! You will be so happy that you did.
