Hi I'm Samantha Cunningham

I grew up in the heat of Nevada, and now live in Logan as I study at USU and prepare to leave for my mission in Atlanta, Georgia.

About Me

I grew up in Logan, Utah for half of my childhood and then moved to Mesquite, NV where I stayed until I left home for college to go to Utah State University. I hope to become a Physical Therapist when I am done with school and marry my best friend and have many little ninos running around. I love to go running, biking, hiking. I love food, movies and music. I have a wonderful family who I love playing Five Crowns with. I love reading, but tend to read fast where I try to finish the book the day I start to read it. I am now preparing to serve a mission for the Lord in Atlanta, Georgia. I am so excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know this gospel is true, and I have gained my own testimony of it. I know that Heavenly Father loves each and every single one of us, more than we can comprehend in this life. Heavenly Father wanted us to come to this earth to gain more knowledge and to gain an eternal family that we can be with for eternity in His presence. I know that the family God has given me was to bless my life, and for me to bless as well. I know that we can talk to our Heavenly Father at any time, and in any place and he hears us and listens and speaks to us in countless ways. I know that Jesus Christ is our savior and redeemer. He knows exactly what we are going through because of the selfless act of the atonement. The atonement covers each and every one of us, and helps us become the best versions of ourselves. I know that Joseph Smith came to the sacred grove with a question of which church was true and Heavenly Father and his son appeared to him and answered that none were true at the time, but through his diligence and faith he was able to translate the scriptures, including the Book of Mormon and was able to restore the keys of the priesthood, the power of God, to restore the gospel so we can now have it on the earth today. I know that our prophet today is Thomas S. Monson and he is guided by our Heavenly Father to give us direction and guidance in the changing world we have today. I know that Heavenly Father loves me and each and every one of his children here on this earth and only wants us to return home to him. I love my Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus Christ who both made sacrifices so that we could gain a body, and the knowledge and families we have today. I am so grateful for my family, and that I have eternity with them. I know this gospel is the definition of true happiness. It is why we are here, and it is what helps me have purpose and happiness each and every day.

How I live my faith

I attend Church every Sunday to partake of a sacred covenant called the Sacrament. I try to attend the temple when I can to perform sacred covenants. I go to FHE, Institute that teaches doctrine in the scriptures. and I Pray to my heavenly father at any time of the day. I try to live in a way that others want to know Christ and what he did for us because they know me. I honestly just love meeting new people who are nice and just love to lift others up.
