Hi I'm Dillon Cannell

I was born and raised in California. I love sports, culinary, and Scouting and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 3 brothers and 2 sisters. My youngest sister died when i was 8 because of a heart defect. I am the second oldest in my family. I have lived around my relatives and cousins all my life. Because of this fact I absolutely love to go to big social gatherings. My grandparents live with my family for a lot of my youth. I grew up in the kitchen, always cooking, and now that is my passion. I have studied culinary for two years. I also was a member of my high school cooking team for 1 year. I love to laugh and smile. I am an easy going guy who loves to be outside and play sports. I try to do everything, but i am mostly good at swimming, tennis, and eating. I worked at Camp Bartlett. a scout camp up in Idaho, for 3 summers as a lifeguard. I love The Boy Scouts of America because it helped me learn life skills, how to get down and dirty, and to work for what i want. But i am not an eagle scout, i guess i didn't want it that bad or that my mom didn't do it for me. It is a great organization for the youth of today.

Why I am a Mormon

Through out my life I have had close members of my immediate family pass form this life. At first it was my grandfather when I was 5. Then my littel sister when i was 8. At that point in my life i became sad. I really did not know where to ture for strength. I saw the wonderful example of my parents. First turning to the Lord, and then to scriptures, and the leaders of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I was rasied to believe in life after this one, but I still really missed my family. When i was 14 my grandmother died, and 2 years later my Aunt passed. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints there are sarcred Ordinances done in the temple of the lord that allow people to continue to progress beyone the grave. One of those being sealed to your family for time and all Eternity. I know that my family will be together forever becuase of the feelings I get when I read the Book of Mormon. I know it is true because i have prayed about it. I know the Josph Smith is a Prophet of God and that his succesers are also. All of this leads me to have greater faith in Jesus Christ. I know that he conquered Death. This gives me the hope of seeing my loved ones agin! I am so greatful for that! I know that there is good in every Church that worships god and lots of good people,but this church has the full truth and it is through His Gospel and the Power of God that we can obtain Eternal Life. In the Name of Jesus Christ, My lord and Master, Amen

How I live my faith

I am a Full Time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am serving in the California Santa Rosa Mission. I bring the gospel to all of gods children, at least the ones that will let us, in the areas where I serve. I am working on strengthening my own testimony of the my savior Jesus Christ by living his teachings every day, studying the Book Of Mormon, and Bible, and sharing that testimony with my brothers and sisters.
