Hi I'm Kody Pierce

I grew up in Utah. i just started my mission on September 7th 2016 and it is awesome so far. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am someone who loves the rhythm and sounds of the world. I love music for any time period and any genre and chances are if I listen to it you will find me singing it a few minutes later. My love of music started when I was small, my mom taught my brother and I to love music so we grow up listening to everything from the 20s to present. It soon got to the point that we made a game out of it so when we would listen to the radio it was a race to see who could name the artist, song name, the album, and even the year it came out faster than the others. Some of my friends found out about this game to see for themselves if it was true, so they started to play any song to see if I knew it and most of the time I know them. Because for my love of music I soon found myself in stage crew or the technical side of theater. I did that for 5 and a half and have been part of numerous musicals from The Sound of Music to The Wizard of Oz to Les Miserables and I have loved every minute of it.

Why I am a Mormon

Since I was 2 I have grown up without a dad and it has been tough. I feel fortunate that I had a loving mother and brother to help me to learn and grow. When I was 11 or so I stopped going to church and fell out of the habit of things like going to church and reading scriptures and praying. One day I was frustrated and depressed and basically done with everything and wanted it to be over and when I was at my wits end I did the only thing i thought could even attempt to help, I prayed. I prayed and asked God "What should I do, I don't know what to do anymore and I am tired of everything, please help me." Afterwards

How I live my faith

Right now I am on a mission in Carlsbad California. While I have been on my mission I have been able to talk to people about God and Jesus Christ to help them know that they are real and that they know everyone individually by name and love them more than we can understand, and because they love us they have given us a plan to live with them and our families forever.
