Hi I'm Cody Coombs

Im the youngest of 6 kids. Ill be serving my mission in the Dominican Republic, Santiago Mission! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is Cody. I am the second youngest kid in my family, im about a couple of minutes from being the youngest but im a twin, and i have the great right of being the older out of the 2. Which comes with its own privileges. I have 4 older sisters,who i claim to be the reason why im so tough. I dont know how many dress ups and barbie play times my brother and i have had to endure, but its okay because we survived. I plan on following all 4 of my sisters footsteps and attend BYU-Idaho, after of course i return from my assigned mission, in the Dominican Republic. I have no idea what i want to major in, my mind has jumped from pediatrician, to veterinarian, to an animator, to who knows what! I love sports, even though im not the best at them. Im very competitive so that makes up for my lack in skill. Ill love most anything from dancing to music, anything really as long as it involves my friends or family, someone i can be crazy around and still feel normal.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God lives, that he is our Heavenly Father, and we are his children. That he loves us so much that he wants us to have everything he has! To be heirs to his kingdom, the kingdom of God, where we can live with are family and loved ones forever! To be happy forever! I know that God loves us, so much, that he would even give us his son, Jesus Christ. To be mocked, to be spit on, to be tortured by the hand of men. To even suffer the greatest of pains and loneliness even to the point that the Son of God would bleed from every pore. Why? It was because God loves us. Through his son Jesus Christ we can be cleansed of ALL of our mistakes, he is the way, the only way to have all that the Father offers. I know that it is only through Jesus Christ Atonement and Resurrection that we can overcome the sting of sin and death. As long as we do what the scriptures ask, what Jesus asked, to "Come follow me". I know that it is through the church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints, that we can Follow Him! That we can have all that the Father has! That we can be Eternally happy!

How I live my faith

I am 19, so many have an age advantage over me when it comes to callings or participating in the community. But i have been involved in alot already. I have grown up as a boy scout, which has placed me in many situations where i live my faith. Not so much as vocally talking to someone but something just as effective. Serving, at car washes, weed picking, singing at nursing homes, all small services but just as effective. I have served in the youth group as well. I was the president of the youth committee for 1 year, planning future activities. The greatest calling for me is always the one im in at that present time. Right now i have been called to serve a 2 year mission, which has motivated me to open my mouth, or to go back to my boy scout days and do little acts of service. Whats so cool is ive always been called to serve, its just for the next 2 years i will be able to be recognized for it! To be a representative of Jesus Christ!
