Hi I'm Amanda Cannon

I love music, learning, having fun, and being outside. I am also a limbo champion. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am a college student majoring in psychology and minoring in Spanish. I am currently serving an LDS mission in California, and when i return I will attend graduate school in Social Work. While I was in high school I did a foreign exchange program in Spain, danced, and ran on the track team. I love to be outdoors and be active. I like to be healthy and I love to cook. I have a passion for knowledge and love to learn new things.

Why I am a Mormon

Throughout my life I have really grown to love this gospel. Throughout every trial, I have depended on my Father in Heaven, His son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost to give me comfort and guide me through it. I love them all, and I know I would not be able to live my life the way I do, and be as happy as I am without Their powerful influence. I've been a member all my life, and my heart goes out to those who have never had the opportunity to hear the gospel. I have experienced darkness in my life, and the light that comes when I turn to Christ. I have a testimony that anyone who goes through hard times can receive comfort and strength from our Savior if they are willing to come unto Him, by continually seeking Him and showing their love for Him by keeping His commandments. I believe with all my heart that the gospel is true and Heavenly father loves us. His only objective is our welfare. That is why I choose to be a member of His church. I trust Him and believe that He will guide me in doing what is right and what will help me in my life.

How I live my faith

I have really learned the power of prayer and scripture study. It's so empowering to experience the big difference between just saying your prayers and reading the scriptures, and doing them in a way that will help you build a relationship with your Father in heaven. Ever since making that change my happiness has increased exponentially. I believe that we are in control of our lives, and we always have the power to make the right choice regardless of how difficult the situation. I believe in honoring my covenants. I strive to keep the commandments, serve Heavenly Father's children, and build a strong relationship with Him so I can be like Him. I choose to live this way because I love God. I know He loves me too because He continually blesses my life with everything I need and want.
