Hi I'm Cody Barr Shaver

I was born in Utah, lived in Wyoming and California. I love sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a very sporty person. I love fishing and the outdoors. I will be leaving to serve a mission for two years for my church. I enjoy camping with my family. I am an Eagle Scout.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At age 8, I was baptized. I received the Aaronic Priesthood when I turned 12 years old. Even though I was born into the church, I have always had a strong testimony of this gospel. I know that Heavenly Father answers my prayers, and that he has a Plan of Happiness for everyone. He has prepared a way for us to be able to return and live with him again someday. He loved his children so much, that he gave his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to be our Savior. He paid for our sins with his blood and life. If we repent, and do all that is asked of us, he will forgive us and make it to where we can live with him again.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. I know that this is where my Heavenly Father wants me to be. I will be serving a mission for my church for the next two years. I am very excited to be able to teach others about the Savior and our Heavenly Father's plan for us.
