Hi I'm Leigh Cannon

I am a college student. I grew up with the gospel in my life and have witnessed the blessings. I am a Mormon!

About Me

I love playing soccer and other sports. I enjoy playing the piano, I have played for 14 years. I love music and participating in singing groups. I am a student as an accounting major. I love spending time outdoors, hiking and camping are activities I love doing. School is very important to me and I like learning about many different things. I am newly married and am continuing to strive to be better every day!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I would be completely lost in my life without it. Going through really difficult trials without the gospel to aid me would be so hard. The gospel brings peace into my life, especially when attending the temple. I know that attending the temple will bring significant blessings into your life, but getting there may be difficult. Satan knows that the temple is sacred and he will do everything he can to keep you away. It is from my recent experience that I have learned that you must follow your heart and avoid letting Satan pull you away from righteous desires. As a married couple, when we attend the temple, it helps us both to grow closer to each other as well as to God. The gospel of Jesus Christ brings hope into my life and I want everyone to feel of His love for them because everyone deserves to know that they are amazing people just for the simple fact that they chose Gods plan to come to earth and that they are all children of their loving Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I love serving others and seeing the way that I can make someones load a little lighter. I love sharing the gospel and introducing others to the church. Being a friend to everyone is the first step, everyone needs a friend. Visiting teaching is huge, you may share a different lesson every time, but sometimes when you go visiting teaching, you learn the most. I work as a primary teacher with the 4-5 year old class and they are completely loving and accepting, that is why we must all become like little children.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Leigh Cannon
Families can be together forever! That is a glorious blessing of this gospel, to know that you can be with loved ones after this life. We receive these blessings through living worthy to enter the temple and then attending the temple. Your family can be sealed for eternity in the holy walls of the temple. It is such an amazing experience to be sealed and it carries throughout your life because you can always remember that you are a forever family. The family is ordained of God and being bound together is a blessing given to us! Show more Show less
