Hi I'm Stephanie Cannon

I am a missionary in Iowa. I love to swim, fish, camp, and spend quality time with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a big sports person, and love to have fun. I am going to school for animal science, and hope to work in wildlife. I have 3 brothers and awesome parents that are my best friends. I work at a crafting store and have a lot of fun there. I have two cats, Charlie and Sophie, and they are sweet. I love animals. I love doing ceramics, and sculpting.

Why I am a Mormon

In my life there are many decisions I have had to make. I grew up in the church, but there came a point in my life where I had to decide if this church was true on my own. I wanted to know. To know I had to work for my answer, and I did. Through prayer, reading the Book of Mormon, and coming to church, and praying more. I felt something touch my heart every time I really pondered and prayed about the words that I had read in the Book of Mormon. The spirit confirmed the truth through thoughts, feelings and peace. I know this Church is true, and I cannot deny it because I have received witnesses from God through the Holy Ghost. The things that I learn and feel bring me so much happiness and joy. I know Jesus is the Christ and that he lived and died for each and every one of us! I know Christ loves me, I know he loves everyone no matter what! I love this church and the teachings of the prophets. I have a testimony that Christ lives and he loves everyone, and he has a plan for us to be happy! I know that we have a latter day prophet and that he leads and guides the church today. I know that families are forever, and that even when we die, we will be able to be with them forever as we follow the laws and ordinances of the Gospel. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints it true! Truth is truth no matter how the world changes in values or beliefs. I find peace that this is Christ's gospel, and it will never change, because he is the head of this Church and will be forever!
